Brand Exclusive: The Top Fragrances of 2015 For Men & Women by Lalique
When it comes to perfume, finding the perfect fragrance that compliments you can often be a little tricky. Many people often find that once they unearth their favourite scent, that they don’t tend to stray from what they know. However at Wakefields we’re advocates of discovery, and following a recent delivery of the most gorgeous fragrances from Lalique, we’re keen to open your eyes to their wonderful new scents and definitively designed perfume bottles.
Described as being a combination of floral, fruity and musky aromas, Amethyst is the ideal scent for the natural, radiant and sensual woman. Flirtatious and feminine, the heart notes of the perfume are Lily Ylang, Crimson Peony and Wild Rose, blended with base notes of Sensual Wood, Musks and Vanilla which create a truly alluring and seductive depth to the fragrance. The addition of Blackberry Bush Leaves, Blackcurrant and Raspberry, breathe gorgeous and fruity top notes into the scent. Evocative of a warm berry coulis on a luxurious Panna Cotta dessert, or an afternoon spent in the woodlands foraging for winter berries – the fragrance is a refreshingly opulent perfume that’ll transition the seasons alongside you.
Lalique Amethyst Éclat
Following the success of its predecessor, Amethyst Éclat is the evolution of the original Amethyst scent – described as a bright, radiant fragrance, enhanced by the addition of sparkling peony over deeper aromas. Bursting with floral heart notes of Magnolia, Peony and Bulgarian Rose Essence, blended with base notes of Violet Wood, Musks and Blackberry, the absence of Vanilla and Sensual Woods make this a lighter perfume in comparison to the original. Completed with luxuriously fresh and fruity top notes of Blackcurrant, Raspberry and Nashi Pear, the sweet, unforgettable aromas complement each other perfectly. Encapsulating a mysteriously, feminine berry-rose paradise, Amethyst Éclat will appeal to those who are searching for a charming and youthful scent.
Lalique Encre Noir Pour Elle
The counterpart fragrance to the original Encre Noir for men, the ladies version is a unique blend of floral, woody and musky aromas, capturing sensual femininity. Encompassing rich, heart notes of Turkish Rose, Osmanthus and Kephalis with base notes of Vetyver from Haiti, Texan Cedar and Musks – Encre Noir leaves opulent, warm and amber-like aromas to tantalise the senses. Sicilian Bergamot, Indonesian Amber Grains and Freesia, complete the layers of fragrance with a spicy yet sweet appeal. Evocative of being wrapped in a rosy sweet satin fabric with a seductively-dark and earthy twist to it, Encre Noir is the perfect evening fragrance with its alluring and intriguing layers.
Lalique Perles De Lalique
Winner of the ‘Best Perfume’ award in 2007 by Marie Claire, Perles de Lalique is a contrast of floral and spicy aromas that blends harmoniously for an ode to eternal femininity.

Characterised by its elegant and refined scents, the perfume could be described as a breath of nature, encompassing both the strength of freedom and sincerity.
Lalique Hommage A L’Homme
