The Roja Parfums and Faberge set

Opulence has been in the air of late, with the launch of Hermès’ €1.5m haute-jewellery diamond covered handbag and Balmain’s Fabergé egg inspired Fall/Winter 2012 line, and the mood for lavishness is taking the fragrance world by storm too.

In honour of the upcoming Easter celebrations, Roja Parfums has also been enamoured by the Fabergé egg and is teaming with the iconic jewellery house for a limited edition bottle of the Roja Parfums Diaghilev scent presented with a Fabergé white gold and diamond egg pendant, the Oeuf Duchesse Blanc.

The 100ml perfume will retail at £17,029 (SG$34,213), with stockists including luxury department store Harrods and Roja Parfums.

Top notes of Diaghilev by Roja Parfums comprise bergamot, lemon and orange, while base notes include oak moss, patchouli and vanilla.

Perfume packaging has been becoming more and more extravagant recently, with a special edition of DKNY’s Golden Delicious being designed by jeweller Martin Katz for a charity auction. The packaging was adorned with white diamonds, sapphires and a 2.43-carat yellow canary diamond. –AFP RELAXNEWS
