René Jules Lalique was an artist, a jewellery and glass designer. He opened his first jewelry shop in 1890. Inspired by nature, his designs incorporated natural materials like glass, pearls, ivory and precious stones. He is popular for design of perfume bottles and home equipments like clocks, doors, fountains, lamps etc.
The brand later cooperated with renowned perfumers like Jean-Claude Ellena, Bertrand Duchaufour or Nathalie Lorson on creating its own line of fragrances. Being already famous for its perfume bottle designs, Lalique quickly gained notoriety for its fragrances as well.
