LALIQUE Les Mascottes Pour Homme 3 Bottle Presentation - Complete with all contents & packaging
Lalique perfume presentations are sublime, and here is just one of many which are currently on offer here in my shop.
`Les Mascottes' was introduced by Lalique in two different presentations, both of which were designed to cater for men. Each presentation contains 3 miniature sized replicas of their larger/full sized bottle and each presentation was a limited production which is discontinued. The large individual bottles can command many hundreds of dollars. However, these miniature examples allow for each example to be purchased and collected at little cost in terms of most Lalique other items and their popularity and rarity value continues to grow. These presentations disappear into collections and the demand for them has more or less out-stripped their supply.
Apart from their size, each miniature is a perfect replica of their larger example. The use of 'surlyn' (and not sulphide) rather than crystal for the stopper is the sole reason that these bottle types are of relatively little cost, however as one would expect from Lalique, there is no compromise to the quality with any of these presentation items. Their fragrances are the same and they have been beautifully packaged & presented. This example is also complete with its original protective sleeve.
Even though none of the mascots are based upon any of the Rene Lalique originals, I am certain that he would approve of these examples, designed by those inspired by him, at the Lalique at the Lalique workshops at Wingen-sure-Moder, in the heart of Alsace, France. It can be noted that very few women would have purchased R Lalique car mascots at time of their manufacture, and yet it can be argued that very few of the designs were masculine in anyway? The same could be said about these pour Homme bottles. They are androgynous and neutral in terms of their design and their appeal is for men & women alike.
Each miniature of this particular presentation contains 5ml of pour Homme EAU DE PARFUM, none of which missing. Each bottle carries a transparent base sticker that reads as follows: LALIQUE PARFUMS 75008 PARIS – FRANCE EAU DE PARFUM e5ML MADE IN FRANCE
Further information is also carried upon the base of the box which is integrally printed as are both of the front silver-foil labels. The three bottles are: `PHENIX' 2000 `LION' 1998 and `SAGITAIRE' 1999. The numbers are their dates of introduction as individual larger bottles.
As with all of the Lalique presentations within my collection, this one was either purchased by me personally during the early days of its launch, or arrived to me mail order from the Lalique salon in London. ALL of my Lalique items are displayed within custom made dust free glass cabinets, where this piece has also remained without being handled since original date of purchase. The box and its internal packaging therefore is also in as good as new mint pristine condition, making this example a very wise investment indeed. I am unable to accept any offers for this, or any other of my Lalique presentations as currently listed. Thank you for your understanding.

*Please note: Where able, I may have used some of the larger examples of these bottles from my collection for some of the photographs in this listing. This is in order to show the fabulous details of these miniature equivalent bottles, which at times have proven problematic for me to capture on camera. However, apart from size and volume of contents they are perfect representations in terms of their moulded patterns*
