Victoire de Castellane, the renowned Parisian jewelry designer who’s been charming everyone as the creative director of Christian Dior’s fine jewelry division for many, many years, has just imagined an incredible bottle for the brand’s new J’adore Exceptional Edition, a wonderful flacon blending 18th century design ideas with 21st century elements.
This majestic bottle was specially designed to look like something that would have probably been hidden inside a piece of furniture from the Court of Versailles, away from a stranger’s eyes. It looks like it’s suspended in time and space, blending in tradition and innovation only to tease our senses to the limit.
The ribbon decorating the amphora was able to transcend the universe of imagination using a special technique, with a layer of silver placed over a layer of rose gold. The two metals were bonded together before they were dipped into an oxidizing bath that blackens the silver, to add a special touch of patina to this jewel before you.
Furthermore, each crystal amphora is mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at Baccarat, as only this prestigious crystal glassmaker could have come up with such a seductive result to match the fragrance. To top it all off, Victoire de Castellane handwrites the name J’adore on each flacon.
