Flash Post: Amber Alert


What It Is: Handcrafted from terracotta by a French mother / daughter artisan duo, these stunning sculptures are one-of-a-kind in every way except one: the secret that lies within. That little surprise would be the solid amber fragrance nestled within, that gently wafts a warm, oriental scent into any room over a long period of time. Best of all, they’re refillable, giving you gift options for years once the ball begins to lose its potency.
Who It’s For: Your impossibly elegant mother, to nestle in her sunroom for a bit of the outdoors inside. Your impossibly lovely cousin and her new husband, as a wedding gift and reminder of what young love smells like. Your impossibly picky sister, because really, what girl can turn down a slice of French luxury?
What It Costs: The balls come in a big range of sizes, from a mere 75 mm (7.5 cm) up to 160 mm. Prices range from $90 to $550, and fragrance refills are set at $75.
Where It’s Art: I wasn’t kidding about the French thing. These amber balls are curated by L’Artisan Parfumeur, a Parisian beauty brand. You can order online with surprisingly reasonable shipping rates (starting at $11 USD), or visit the Oglivy store in Montreal to try their wares firsthand.
