Noir Premier Deux Cigales 1911 - Pièce Unique, Extrait de Parfum
EXTRAIT DE PARFUM, 500 ML (16.9 FL. OZ.)
With DEUX CIGALES 1911 – PIÈCE UNIQUE, the Noir Premier Collection presents its most outstanding opus yet: a spectacular signed and numbered flacon, offered as a one-off piece.
Limited, Numbered and Signed Edition: Pièce Unique
Produced using the rare and demanding Lost-Wax process, reserved solely for exceptional pieces, this unique flacon is adorned with the graceful shape of two cicadas, moulded on the interior of the bottle. Reflecting the honeyed hue of the fragrance, the corners of this sumptuous creation are hand-painted with 23-carat liquid gold by a specialized artisan.
Fashioned in black crystal in homage to René Lalique’s first black flacon “Quatre Aigles” (1911), the stopper, sculpted with four cicada heads, demonstrates the virtuosity of Lalique’s master-glassmakers at its peak. This unique stopper is underlined with slender strokes of liquid gold, melded into the crystal in an annealing oven, a process that is repeated twice. The stopper is then paired with the flacon, then sealed with a baudruchage and a gold and black thread.
A subtle balance of the abstract and figurative, DEUX CIGALES 1911 PIÈCE UNIQUE 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.

THE LOST-WAX PROCESS
Known from earliest Antiquity, the Lost-Wax technique allowed René Lalique to create one of his most iconic pieces: his first perfume bottle. Today, the master-glassmakers of the Lalique factory in Wingen-sur-Moder, Alsace (France) use this extraordinary know-how to produce exceptional pieces and artworks.Discover
