For the 2008 limited edition, Lalique is once more using the representation and appealing idea of the mascots introduced in 1997 for the men's perfume flacons. The figure of Buddha, which first came from India, then spread throughout Asia, incarnates above all serenity and the values of wisdom. Worked in frosted glass, the Buddha is seated in a meditating position, with eyes closed in an attitude conducive to reflection, even if the etymology of his name means "awake". The gestures are codified exactly and here define the attitude of meditation. The two hands are placed one on the other, palms facing upwards, while the legs are crossed in the lotus position. A gentle, pensive smile pervades this universal Buddha, who chooses to remain with his eyes closed under the big bodhi tree rather than go out into the world and preach.
This first Lalique masculine fragrance embodies elegance and timelessness. An olfactory composition combining the freshness of top notes with chic and comfort in the dry-down. The link between these two is achieved by floral and woody transparent heart notes.
