Lalique – Encre Indigo EDP 

Launched in October 2023, this aromatic woody scent is an unconventional fragrance for the new generation of free spirits. Created by Annick Menardo.

Heart: Warm Bay Madagascar oil, Saffron accord, Jukro Black Tea accord.

The Bottle: Following his brother ‘Encre Noire’ the flacon is inspired by the ‘Biches’ inkwell designed by René Lalique in 1913.

And of course the bottle colour is indigo blue which starts as deep matt midnight blue at the top which gradually lightens at the bottom. 

Price: 50ml for £75.
