Limited, Numbered and Signed Edition: Edition of 8
The lavish creation is adorned with the graceful shape of two cicadas, molded on the interior of the bottle. The honeyed hue of the fragrance delineates their stylized bodies. The cicada a is recurring motif in René Lalique’s work. Here, it is drawn from the “Quatre Cigales” flacon (1910), which inspired the cicada wings engraved on the glass edges of the iconic Noir Premier Collection bottle. Echoing the décor of the flacon, the polished, satin-finished stopper is sculpted with four cicada heads and hand-dabbed with liquid gold. Finally, it is sealed with a baudruchage and a black thread.
A subtle balance of the abstract and figurative, DEUX CIGALES 1911 reprises the majestic silhouette of René Lalique’s first black fragrance bottle, “Quatre Aigles” (1911), as well as the design of its facing, forming the Roman numeral “I”.
Two different qualities of Lavender, the Essence and the Absolute, express the richly varied facets of the “blue gold” of Provence. Sparkling Pink Peppercorn embroiders flashes of light onto this azure cloth. The soaring voices of two stars of the Floral realm rise from this sunlit landscape: velvety Rose and heady Tuberose Absolutes blossom in the heart notes. A sensuous base of Balsams and Woods adds a last touch of refinement to this colorful bouquet. Silky Sandalwood and sheer White Cedarwood blend with tender Tonka Bean, Amber and Vanilla, in a trail as luminous as the sky of the South of France.
