Were you ever fascinated by bugs as a child? Have you ever stared in wonder at the beautiful patterns on a butterfly’s wings, or the iridescence of the wings of a dragonfly or cicada? Well, a surprising number of perfume and vanity item designers have felt the same way … even the “big” names like Baccarat, Coty, D’Orsay, Elizabeth Arden, Lalique, L. T. Piver, Viard, and Yardley; as well as modern art glass designers.
