Inspired by René Lalique’s mythical “Duncan” collection, designed in 1931, the bottle is encased in an Art Deco style bottle, featuring a white wooden cap bearing Lalique’s “Hirondelles” (“Swallow”) logo in gold. A golden metal pendant, also presenting the emblem, is tied around the neck of the bottle by a coloured cord. 

The flacon is presented in a beautiful white coffret with a magnetic clasp, lined in white padded fabric. It is protected by a coloured sleeve, matching the nuance of the fragrance, inscribed with its name on a white label.

Master perfumer Nathalie Lorson describes the scent as a high-contrast pop of saturated colours. The scent features notes of musk, moss and patchouli, turning it into a totally modern take on chypre. “With Electric Purple, I wanted to pay homage to René Lalique’s modernity by pushing back boundaries. Inspired by idea of colour fusions, I designed electric contrasts between purple berries, green leaves and texturized musks. It’s a scent for a woman who wants a strong signature!”
