Hungarian crystal and glass manufacturer Emeshel have released a new collection of fragrances aiming connoisseurs who appreciate the behind-the-scenes craft of perfumery entitled Les Cinq Parfumeurs (The Five Perfumers). It comprises Loukoum Delight, Iced Mandarine, Sweet Folly, Vanilla Oud and Wild Patchouli...
The particularity of this new lineup in terms of image is that it puts the personalities and names of five star perfumers in the limelight.
