Cartier mooted the idea when it launched its Les Necessaires a Parfum line of decorative metal covers for its signature fragrances last year – simply slide one over a bottle, and you’re ready to flex. This month, it expands the collection with a graphic red-and-gold lacquered design that pays homage to the maison’s famous packaging.
The Cartier Necessaires a Parfum case is designed to house the 27 fragrances that Cartier carries.
And because it’s Cartier, there is a level of artisanal craftsmanship at play here. It requires more than seven steps to create the metal case: from the intaglio metal engraving to filling it with lacquer, everything is completed by hand, before the piece is finally precision polished. Desirable, much?
Ahead, a look at the complete Necessaires a Parfum range.
