Burberry and Baccarat Team Up for New Fragrance

By Paul Joseph

Iconic British fashion brand Burberry has teamed up with French luxury crystal makers Baccarat to create a limited edition perfume.

Encased in a handmade Baccarat crystal bottle and designed by Burberry Creative Director Christopher Bailey, the Body Crystal fragrance is described as an evolved version of the Burberry Body perfume that was launched in 2011.

The new incarnation boasts scents of precious rose essence and warm tonka beans, along with top notes of green absinthe and peach, a heart of iris, rose absolute and warm sandalwood, and a base of cashmeran, creamy vanilla and musk.

To mark the year of Burberry’s foundation (1856), the fragrance is limited to just 156 hand-numbered bottles.

Hand crafted in Baccarat factory in France, each 45ml bottle of Burberry’s Body Crystal fragrance is priced at £1,760 ($2,800).
