Neiman Marcus, Cherry Creek Shopping Center, Denver, 303-329-2600; Attention! The newest high- fashion fragrance releases come in bottles as exqui- site as the perfumes within. When Christian Louboutin enlisted architect Thomas Heatherwick to design the containers for his three new scents, including Tornade Blonde, the results were stunning undulated glass bottles, each with a central aper- ture. "It was no longer a single volume, but became a ring of perfume," says Heatherwick. "Christian wanted to a create a flow of fragrance within the bottle." Other designers have played with the toppers to create artistry as well as functionality. Influenced by the brand's Intarsio jewelry collection, Bulgari's Le Gemme Orientali collec- tion features a cabochon- shaped stopper with a gold design reminiscent of Mediterranean architec- ture, while the opulent structural cap of Sisley's Soir d'Orient, designed by contemporary artist Bronisław Krzysztof, resembles a crown. For the Black Orchid Lalique Edition, Tom Ford called on the famed crystal house to create a finely fluted, Art Deco black crystal bottle. (A limited edition, only 1,200 pieces were created, each engraved by Lalique with a unique edition number.) More surreal is Cartier's new scent for men, L'Envol de Cartier, which sits in a removable—and refillable— capsule within a detachable glass dome. Seen from a distance, it's as if the elixir is levitating. Says Cartier perfumer Mathilde Laurent, "We developed 2,000 drawings over more than two years [in order] to achieve the perfect masterpiece." .
