Stop and Smell the Rose
Just in time for the season of love, where heart-shaped boxes of chocolate, cellophane balloons, teddy bears, and red roses abound, a more timeless gift arrives care of two French companies: Diptyque and Macon & Lesquoy. The fragrance company partnered with the design duo known for their hand-embroidered, military-style pins and accessories to craft this limited-edition broche à parfumer. Comprised of cannetille on felt, the pink bloom features a tear-shaped ceramic charm designed to hold the brand’s Eau Rose toilette (or any other scent of your choice). When spritzed with perfume, you can rely on the dangling dropper to preserve the aroma and help it stand the test of time—which is more than can be said for your standard bouquet or, for that matter, most relationships.
