The House of Van Cleef & Arpel's couture perfumery collection 'Collection Extraordinaire' is an exquisite collection of rare and luxurious fragrances. The beauty of nature, which is always a major source of inspiration for Van Cleef & Arpels High Jewellery, is elementary to these compositions.
In Asia, exotic orchids are often associated with the idea of beauty. The luscious bean of one of these orchids, the vanilla planifolia, is suave and intoxicating. The perfumer wanted vanilla that was not too sugary, but sweet like candied almond. Joyous fruity harmonies magnify the floral heart and melt within multi-faceted vanilla, tender and warm, cradled in dreamy musk. Feminine and sensual, absolute and bewitching: Orchidée Vanille.
In this couture collection, bottles are sculpted in pure and slender shapes. Glass is heavy and precious. Like a jewel, the bottle is signed with a stamp on the bottom and topped with a black lacquered cap.
