DuPont and Lisi Cosmetics have produced a gem-like cap for Inter Parfums’ Van Cleef & Arpels new Oriens fragrance. Designed by Joël Desgrippes, and moulded by Lisi Cosmetics with DuPont’s Surlyn resin, the cap’s appearance is modelled after the design of a ring from the Van Cleef & Arpels’ own jewellery collection, with the faceted, Surlyn cap mimicking the pink-orange-green spectrum of the tourmaline gem set within the ring. The three different colours lacquered on the surface of the Surlyn are reflected by the metallic insert set deep within the thick-moulded cap.

According to Dupont, the Surlyn resin was also selected for its high compatibility with the ingredients contained within the fragrance, as well as the possibility to integrate a very small injection gate which could be easily hidden behind one of the leaves in the cap’s design.
