Jewellery perfume swings into style

Locket, brooch or ring is the new way to wear your perfume, says Baya Simons

Is it a locket? Is it a brooch? Or is it a tiny bottle of perfume? From the dainty vials of Reptile scent worn as necklaces on the Celine spring/summer 2020 catwalk to the silver flask pendants seen at Lemaire autumn/winter 2019, perfume jewellery is the playful way to wear fragrance now.

For a striking take on the trend, look to Diptyque’s perfumed golden bird brooch, inspired by Renaissance-era pomanders, or Kilian’s scented chunky gold ring, designed with Parisian jeweller Elie Top. Strangelove NYC’s tiny perfume bottle filled with damask rose, violet leaves and vanilla balsam has an Alice in Wonderland quality, while Diane Kordas describes her diamond pavé necklaces as “amulets”, suggesting the wearer fills the vial with their own signature scent or with that of a loved one, for the ultimate aromatic protection.
