DEUX CIGALES, LIMITED EDITION - HELIOTROPE, ROSE & TONKA BEAN
Deux Cigales is an exceptional Lalique Limited Edition presentation made by the Cire Perdue (Lost Wax) method. This extraordinary technique is used for the most precious and rarest objects and ensures that every piece is unique, as the mould literally evaporates as the crystal enters it, to form the piece.
Deux Cigales was made as a limited edition of 8 pieces globally.
The lavish creation is adorned with the graceful shape of two cicadas, molded on the interior of the bottle. The honeyed hue of the fragrance delineates their stylized bodies. The cicada a is recurring motif in René Lalique’s work. Here, it is drawn from the “Quatre Cigales” flacon (1910), which inspired the cicada wings engraved on the glass edges of the iconic Noir Premier Collection bottle. Echoing the décor of the flacon, the polished, satin-finished stopper is sculpted with four cicada heads and hand-dabbed with liquid gold. Finally, it is sealed with a baudruchage and a black thread.

Two different qualities of Lavender, the Essence and the Absolute, express the richly varied facets of the “blue gold” of Provence. Sparkling Pink Peppercorn embroiders flashes of light onto this azure cloth. The soaring voices of two stars of the Floral realm rise from this sunlit landscape: velvety Rose and heady Tuberose Absolutes blossom in the heart notes. A sensuous base of Balsams and Woods adds a last touch of refinement to this colorful bouquet. Silky Sandalwood and sheer White Cedarwood blend with tender Tonka Bean, Amber and Vanilla, in a trail as luminous as the sky of the South of France.
