For the guided magnetic collar cap of their brand-new refillable men’s fragrance Armani Code, L’Oréal has chosen to entrust g.pivaudran, a French expert in aluminium components.

Patented technology

Thanks to its vast experience coupled with its technological expertise, g.pivaudran has anodised the aluminium cap [1] in intense black offering a sleek black shine, coupled with deep engraving of the Giorgio Armani monogram, on the top of the cap.

For a wonderful magnetic open-close mechanism that instantly spells out luxury, g.pivaudran used their magnetised guided technology, which was patented in 2000, allowing a perfect alignment of the monogram and the bottle.

The high-speed assembly was achieved using a brand-new machine installed on the g.pivaudran premises in the Lot region of France. The seven components of this high-end cap required an extremely precise design to meet the requirements set out by Armani whilst adapting to the use of a screw-action pump.

For this new collaboration between L’Oréal and g.pivaudran, particular attention was placed on user comfort when handling the lid whilst working on a subtle curved edge,” outlined Marion Kergoat, Commercial Engineer at g.pivaudran.
