Who is the famous actor in sandalwood

Lalique - Lalique de Lalique

Timeless and radiant, the “Lalique de Lalique” fragrance presents the three finest flowers of perfume art: fruity rose, intoxicating jasmine and delicately powdery iris. As soon as the fragrance rises into the air, the elegant bouquet blooms, to which the flowers of the gold lacquer give a spicy note.

The heart note perks up the scent: the lush green of the blackcurrant leaves, the playful acidity of the blackberry and the gentle note of the pear with its rosy facets form a modern, lively composition.

Thanks to the silky base of musk, vanilla and creamy Mysore sandalwood, the fragrance is harmoniously combined with the skin.

Lalique - sculptor of light
The famous jewelry and glass manufacturer René Jules Lalique (1860-1945) had received thorough training in drawing and learned from a Parisian jeweler when he finally went into business for himself and worked out his own designs. As early as the 1880s, he was making jewelry for various jewelers, including Cartier, and after some time he founded his own business and took over a craft workshop. At that time it was felt to be extraordinary that he attached less importance to valuable materials such as gold, pearls and precious stones and also used enamel, ivory, horn, semi-precious stones, ordinary stones and glass. His works were prizewinning and present at all important exhibitions, they were also sold in Samuel Bing's “L'Art Nouveau” store - “L'Art Nouveau” became the name of the French Art Nouveau. He also made stage decorations for the famous actress Sarah Bernhardt.

From around 1907 on, Lalique produced perfume bottles for the perfumer François Coty, and later also for the other leading fragrance houses of the 20s and 30s (Roger & Gallet, Houbigant, Molyneux, d'Orsay, Worth). With its high-volume production, Lalique revolutionized perfume packaging in and of itself. As a result, larger parts of the population could finally afford a fragrance and glass work of art.

Around the time of the First World War, Lalique devoted himself exclusively to glass art. After the war he was even involved in the design of the Orient Express in the 1920s. In 1925, at the arts and crafts exhibition in Paris, where he also designed the pavilion for the Sèvres porcelain company, Lalique's works were first referred to as "Art Déco". The furnishing of larger buildings was to follow, such as the church of St. Nicaise in Reims, the fountains on the Rond-Point des Champs-Elysées and the palace portals of Prince Asaka Yasuhiko in Tokyo. The 1930s would be the height of his success. His vases, flacons and glass figurines were much sought-after and just as well known as the hood ornaments he designed for Bentley, Bugatti and Rolls-Royce and others. The Second World War and the German occupation put an end to the company.

Lalique's first own perfume was not to appear during the founder's lifetime. In 1992 Lalique entered the perfume market for the first time with “Lalique Pour Femme” and many more were to follow, which are still very popular today, not only because of their sometimes legendary and always collectable bottles.
