Normally there are a lot of interesting lectures and round table discussions on the program of the Milano perfume fair Esxence: The Scent of Excellence. The fifth edition was no exception: events at the conference hall were scheduled from morning till night all four days. I want to talk about one of them—the lecture of legendary designer Pierre Dinand, named “Masterpieces of Perfume Bottle Design.”

In 1982, Giorgio Armani created his first fragrance for women. Inspired by the rhythmic geometric patterns of Art Deco, the bottle designed by Pierre Dinand was a clear, pure block of sculpted glass adorned with vertical black lines.

This year, Giorgio Armani reinterprets this bottle in an exclusive limited edition. In the hands of master crystal workers in Saint Louis, the initial block of glass is transformed into a precious block of crystal.

Armani Crystal Edition is an exceptional showcase for this fragrance: with the same exacting standards, luxury, Haute Couture, Fine Perfumery and Crystal Glass-making come together to offer a unique object symbolic of their expertise.


Among the 100 Armani Crystal Editions numbered pieces available worldwide, the N°3 and N°8 will be sold at the Giorgio Armani counter in World Duty Free, London Heathrow Terminal 4.

Our beauty advisors will be pleased to present you these fascinating pieces and offer you an exceptional discovery experience.
