Victoire de Castellane, the famous Parisian adornments fashioner who’s been enchanting everybody as the imaginative executive of Christian Dior‘s fine gems division for some, numerous years, has quite recently envisioned a mind blowing bottle for the fresh out of the plastic new’s J’adore Exceptional Edition, a brilliant flacon mixing eighteenth century plan thoughts with 21st century components.

This grand jug was uniquely intended to look like something that would have presumably been covered up inside a household item from the Court of Versailles, far from a more interesting’s eyes. It would appear that it’s suspended in time and space, mixing in convention and development just to prod our faculties as far as possible.

“The Versailles estate is a very strong reference in the creative world of Dior in general, and for J’adore in particular. It is also the theme of my latest luxury jewelry collection that draws inspiration from the decorative features of the château, at night, illuminated by the glow of candlelight. I imagined a perfume bottle had been found in a piece of furniture at the Court of Versailles, like a jewel or treasure hidden away for safe keeping. If J’adore had been created in the 18th century, I like to think it would have been like that, baroque, suspended in time and space.” – Victoire de Castellane

The strip brightening the amphora could rise above the universe of creative ability utilizing an extraordinary strategy, with a layer of silver put over a layer of rose gold. The two metals were fortified together before they were dunked into an oxidizing shower that darkens the silver, to include a unique touch of patina to this gem before you.

Moreover, every precious stone amphora is mouth-passed up the ace glassblowers at Baccarat, as just this prestigious gem glassmaker could have thought of such an enticing outcome to coordinate the scent. To finish everything off, Victoire de Castellane handwrites the name J’adore on each flacon.

“I think of fragrance as an expression of sensuality, much like jewelry. I started with the idea of a completely transparent bottle, as if there were only the perfume and the bow, as if the fragrance were motionless and undoing the precious ribbon would bring it to life. The ribbon is an essential feature of Dior style: it exudes sensuality by the rise and fall of its curves, by its very symbolism. To untie a ribbon is to undress. And take possession of what was bound by the ribbon. When you see a bow, you can imagine untying it. My work always contains an element of eternity that I convey by freezing the movement when it is at its most beautiful.” – Victoire de Castellane

Created in the best Parisian Fine Jewellery ateliers, this rare edition uses a technique that combines blackened silver with rose gold on the two faces of the ribbon, in a way that emphasizes the golden color of the perfume. The fragrance and the metal thereby contrast in a play of colors and light. The Baccarat crystal amphora remains completely transparent, as though there was only the perfume, and a bow embellished with 10 pear cut diamonds and 30 round cut diamonds. It is as though the perfume were still, only coming to life when the precious ribbon is pulled undone.

The two metals are worked separately then bonded together before being dipped into an oxidizing bath that blackens the silver while preserving the rose gold. This gives a jewel an antique look and reproduces a cradle-lit effect. As if frozen in movement, the bow requires precise and meticulous manipulation by the craftspeople, from polishing to stone setting.
