Lalique Azalée perfume launched in time for Valentine’s at Paris Gallery
Dubai: René Lalique’s œuvre is lush with flora. Stylized, idealized, and reinvented flowers such as the splendid “Lys Noir” motif adorns a bottle designed by the artist in 1924, based on the lotus blossoms of Egyptian frescoes. This Lys motif, so abstract that it can hint at other flowers, has yielded the inspiration for Lalique’s new feminine fragrance: Azalée, a scent as radiant as a sunny garden, named after a flower that symbolizes the joy of love. Azalée is available at Paris Gallery stores in the UAE.
This modern fruity floral chypre, composed by Michel Almairac and Mylène Alran, translates the flamboyant hues of azaleas into scent. In the top notes, bergamot spills sunshine on a playful peach that blends into the delectably fruity facets of freesia. In the heart, crimson roses, heady gardenia and intoxicating Sambac jasmine are gathered into a bouquet as luxuriant as an azalea bush in full blossom. The fragrance settles languidly into dusky patchouli, creamy sandalwood and sensuous amber.
