Perrier-Jouët has unvelied the Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Florale Edition by Mokoto Azuma - the first limited edition design of cuvée Belle Époque since the creation of its iconic anemone bottle by Emile Galle. The renowned Japanese floral artist created the unique bottle with a single delicate botanical arabesque dotted with white Japanese anemones - the original flower chosen by Gallé. In Mokoto's version, the flowers are suspended in a three-dimensional frame where the composition of white, green and yellow take inspiration from the sensation of champagne inside the mouth and the delicate movement of ivy and leaves. Of course, his tribute to Gallé's anemones revives history and connects a glorious past to a gorgeous present.
The artist spent months in his floral studio studying the bottle and flowers to create the perfect scene. The result breathes new life to the brand and iconic look of Perrier-Jouët Belle.

You can’t connect the dots looking forward, you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever – because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow you heart even when it leads you off the well-worn path, and that will make all the difference.
~Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
