Russian couple splashed out €4,250 ($5,800) for a bottle of Armani’s ‘Crystal Edition’ fragrance at Dubai International Airport Concourse A. This special edition of the first fragrance by Giorgio Armani, numbered 27 is just one of 100 released pieces. In 1982, Giorgio Armani created his first fragrance for women. Inspired by the rhythmic geometric patterns of Art Deco, the bottle designed by Pierre Dinand is a clear, pure block of sculpted glass adorned with vertical black lines. In 2012, Giorgio Armani reinterprets the bottle of his first fragrance. In the hands of master crystal workers in Saint Louis, a block of glass has been transformed into precious crystal, and each step of the process is based on century-old expertise.
The Crystal Edition is an exceptional showcase for this fragrance: the same exacting standards of luxury, Haute Couture, Fine Perfumery and Crystal Glass-making come together to offer a unique object, symbolic of Armani’s expertise.
The fragrance comes in a deluxe coffret containing two 30ml refills and is available in a very exclusive selection of stores.
