The Little Black Dress of Perfumes

Smoked black crystal from the House of Baccarat was used to create 40 limited edition bottles of a potent extract version of Guerlain’s classic fragrance, La Petite Robe Noire. Each bottle is adorned with a silver and pink floral embellishment in metallic bullion thread. The embroidery technique, which uses wisp-thin metal coils and is done by hand, originated in the 17th century, and is made today by the modern House of Macon & Lesquoy.

Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Special Edition (250ml), $15,400, at Guerlain counters.
