DuPont™ Surlyn® Creates a Gem for the Cosmetic Cap of 'Oriens' Fragrance from Van Cleef & Arpels
A Spectrum of Colors
“The cap is a genuinely beautiful creation and we are proud to have worked with the molder Lisi Cosmetics on its development. Thanks to their material knowledge and command of the injection molding process, we have created a cap of extreme quality,” - Marion Trossat, packaging developer at Inter parfums.
The colorful effects and luxurious appearance achieveable with caps molded from DuPont™ Surlyn® is perhaps best illustrated by the cosmetic cap of the 'Oriens' fragrance from Van Cleef & Arpels, a brand of Inter parfums.
The bottle’s designer, Joël Desgrippes, modeled its appearance on the design of a ring from the company’s own jewelry collection, with the faceted, Surlyn® cap mimicking the pink-orange-green spectrum of the tourmaline gem set within the ring. Key to achieving this effect is the clarity and magnifying effect of the material. The three different colors lacquered on the surface of the Surlyn® are reflected by the metallic insert set deep within the thick-molded cap, producing a shimmering sense of depth and luxury. Further criteria for the selection of Surlyn® include:
- The material’s high compatibility with the ingredients contained within the fragrance
- The possibility to integrate a very small injection gate which could be easily hidden behind the one of the leaves in the cap’s design
