To celebrate their milestone 40th birthday, perfumery house Amouage is re-releasing Crystal & Gold Man, and Crystal & Gold Woman – their first-ever crystal bottle fragrances.

Founded in 1983 in the Sultanate of Oman, Amouage perfumes were designed to be the ‘gift of Kings’. Since then, the perfume house has developed a reputation for creating finely crafted scents that compete with the world’s best.

This limited edition re-release gives fragrance fanatics the chance to travel back in time and experience one of the original Amouage ‘gifts of Kings’ themselves.

An ode to their rich history, the Cristal & Gold scent is timeless and luxurious – coming in crystal bottles made using the original moulds from 40 years ago.

It was actually these original moulds that sparked the idea for a re-release.

They were rediscovered deep in the cellars of the High Cristallerie Waltersperger, Amouage’s historic master glassmaker, nestled in beautiful Normandy, France.

The fragrance was designed by Guy Robert, one of modern history’s most respected perfumers. Robert was born into a famous family of perfumers in the French town of Grasse, which is sometimes referred to as the ‘perfume capital of the world’.

The limited quantities of the fragrance are sure to make this a highly-coveted collector’s item, with only 1,000 units available worldwide, and only two of each fragrance in Australia.

The fragrance will be sold exclusively through Libertine Parfumerie and will cost buyers $2,990.

They will also be on display at the Libertine Parfumerie flagship boutique at the Intersection Paddington.
