When you own something as precious as a flacon of Arpège, the scent Jeanne Lanvin had created for her daughter’s 30th birthday in 1927, you want to lug it around with you wherever you go. Clearly, the parfumeurs at Lanvin are attentive to their clients’ needs because the house has come out with a minaudière case in polished black enamel with a luxe leather lining and gold-chain handle. Excessive? A little, but nothing is too good for one of the world’s great fragrances.
$3,610 in Lanvin boutiques (from February) and Bergdorf Goodman
