These rippled flacon toppers elevate each perfume bottle into a cherished keepsake. Meticulously handcrafted in Jarosinski and Vaugoin's historic Vienna workshop, each silver topper is a testament to exceptional artistry. The bottle toppers come in two varieties: one adorned with a twisted sphere shape, and the other featuring a sleek flat top. The flat-top design offers a personal touch, as it can be engraved with a monogram, adding a touch of individuality and sophistication. Drawing inspiration from the Wiener Secession language of the Orlo range, these miniature treasures beautifully capture its essence and allure.

WienerBlut was founded by Alexander Lauber in 2008. After years of extensive research of 19th century Viennese perfume formulas and experimenting with some of the obscure raw materials used at the time, Lauber deconstructed several historical compositions, which lead to the release of the first WienerBlut fragrance, Klubwasser, in 2009.
The perfumer's nine fragrances are heavily inspired by scents from the Wiener Moderne period. The flacons toppers, that also pay homage and celebrate the Wiener Werkstätte, are a naturally good match for WienerBlut’s fragrance ethos, as they share a common fascination with the period, both sharing a passion for materiality, craftsmanship and manual finishing.
The term "Wiener Blut" was first coined in 1873, the same year Vienna hosted the 5th World Fair. Translating to Viennese Blood, the expression seeks to describe the particular attitude of the Viennese people, shaped by the unique cultural and diverse ethnic background of the late 19th-century Austro-Hungarian metropolis.
