“La petite robe noire” Fragrance Cap by Guerlain
Dressed up in DuPont Surlyn®
The fragrance cap of “La petite robe noire” by Guerlain is dressed up by a sparkling helix shaped cap molded from DuPont Surlyn®. The shape of bottle and cap – which is also decorated with a small ribbon – is a reference to the classical vials of the house. By using the DuPont packaging material the cap could be redesigned due to repositioning of the injection gate at the molding process to achieve maximum clarity and brilliance magnified by the specific shape.
Thanks to excellent chemical resistance and the ability of Surlyn® to be processed in mono-injection molding technique even for highly complex shapes the DuPont resin was the material of choice for the molder ALBEA, Parigné L’évêque, France, who realized an increased transparency in the new design by positioning the injection gate in a nearly invisible way to achieve the purest impression.
The “La petite robe noire” is available as Eau de Parfum in 30, 50 and 100 ml.
