L'Abeille de Guerlain - the fragrance world abuzz with jewels.

Perhaps you're wondering what to ask your significant other to buy you for Christmas this year?
Here is a sneak peek at Guerlain's stunning new bijoux fashioned on the L'Abeille de Guerlain flacon. The piece comes as a pendant and it is made exclusively to order with your favourite perfume.

Information is still rather scant, but Luxury Launches reported in May this year that this meticulously-crafted object of desire is composed of pavé set diamonds and polished rock crystal in a solid platinum setting. This project represents a marriage of three artisans: the jeweller, of course the perfumer, and a watchmaker... the latter of which has designed a clever mechanism to pop open the wings to reveal an ornately-decorated body. The jewellery will release your preferred scent for approximately 6 months whilst you wear it.

Apparently, 500 hours of craftsmanship has gone into each piece, making this Guerlain's most exclusive (and undoubtedly expensive) treasure yet.

Kinda makes the Christmas ham taste like cardboard, right?
