The Scent of French Luxury meets french Macaron Delights
One of the most striking French luxury manufacturers Lalique have just celebrated their 130 years. Here at Maison des Macarons we were thrilled to be chosen to supply Macarons for this celebration and launch of their new perfume, held at their Mayfair flagship store in London. As well as creating some divine glass pieces for this celebration, which depicts the "swallow" which reflects, spring, happiness and freedom, this beautiful new perfume Mon Premier Cristal Hirondelle was also created. With only 130 precious pieces made, these will definitely become collectors items alongside so many of the stunning Lalique pieces have over these past 130 years.
Lalique 130 Years celebration Perfume

Where do Maison des Macarons come in you might well ask? Well we were asked to provide beautiful branded macarons with flavours to match this divine new perfume. We love an opportunity to be uber creative so out came our Flavour Thesaurus. We finally came up with some divine heady Jasmine Macarons alongside heavenly Madagascan Vanilla. To accentuate the impact of the Macarons we then added beautiful logos which incorporated the “swallow” icon and painted them in edible gold. They looked and tasted stunning!
A previous Macaron and Lalique collaboration has been much more expensive than ours – in 2017 Lalique created a Lalique Crystal Box that contained a Macaron with 24 carat gold leaf (we do that but without the box), for the Regis Bal Harbor Resort in Florida – it sold at $9703 each!!
Now that is an expensive mouthful!!
We love creating bespoke macarons and bespoke flavours….and we LOVE Lalique!
Thank you to Lalique and to Helen McTiffen PR for thinking of us!
