Baccarat is one of the most glamorous casino games around. The game’s trappings are part of what make it so popular – players can place bets in the form of $100 bills (though in European casinos, Baccarat is played with oblong chips) and the table itself is often blocked off from the main casino floor, to keep the action private. It’s a game of pure luck, but the winning player is still rewarded with a lavish gold-plated winner’s plaque.

The company has a long history of royal patronage, with King Louis-Philippe and Emperor Napoleon III both commissioning glassware from the factory. One of the most famous pieces is the 1867 ‘Jusivy’ table service, which was designed for the Exposition Universelle in Paris and is now housed in the Palace of Versailles. It’s prized for its prismatic lustre, which allows it to reflect a rainbow of colours depending on where light hits it.

The fragrance aims to capture that alchemy of Baccarat’s process through its use of natural ingredients and its ability to be woody, spicy, resinous, and floral all at once. It uses jasmine and bergamot to introduce a freshness and a brightness, while cedarwood and vanilla orchid add warmth and depth. It’s a balancing act that, like Baccarat itself, is difficult to achieve. The result is an elegantly simple yet utterly alluring scent that’s perfect for fall and winter.
