Dolce and Gabbana have released a new fragrance and for the launch at Saks Fifth Avenue's flagship store in Manhattan, we were asked to build two 3-D scale models (4 feet high, approximately 12 times larger than life) of their new fragrance bottle.

and here's the result!  We constructed the lower half using resin and custom made molds and the Gardenia shaped top was hand carved, resin coated and then hand painted.

Here's a look at the construction process that went into creating the replicas. Below is the mold used to create the second gardenia.

Applying the finishing touches

And here's a few shots of the finished installation of the giant bottles in the windows of Saks.
