Franck Boclet has designed the packaging and the bottle. Like a jewel box, the coffret is classic as well as luxuriously provocative with the packaging made with pearl caviar pattern. The bottle, a 100 ml spray, is massive, squared and slightly rounded on top giving a feminine touch. The bottle is black shiny lacquered with a metal chromium plate refering to the chromium metal of the vinyl disc tray and of course of the beautiful American cars and of the motorcycles bikers.
