Jeweler Erik Laykin launches Montecito

Bling king Erik Laykin, scion of the founder of the 90-year-old Los Angeles jewelry company Laykin et Cie, which is opening a branch at the Rosewood Miramar next month, is launching an exclusive perfume called “Montecito” to coincide with its new presence in our Eden by the Beach.

He worked for two years in France to create a fragrance that would represent a perfect balance of our beautiful coast and “our magnificent joie de vivre.”

“It is a clean and unadulterated beauty in the form of scent!” he declares.

Ingredients include cedar, citrus, and bergamot notes, along with exquisite hyacinth and a few “mystery flowers.”

“It is arguably a most entrancing perfume that is not overbearing but is clearly with you every step of the way,” says Erik, who used master perfumers from four continents to create the limited edition of 500 bottles, which retails for $285 for the Eau de Parfum 100 ml spray and $75 for the Eau de Perfume 20 ml roller ball application.

Putting on the spritz just in time for Christmas.
