Crown Risdon Supplies Signature Fragrance Cap

November 22, 2005

Crown Risdon manufactured the luxury fragrance cap for Yohji Yamamoto, the new signature fragrance created by the Japanese fashion guru.
The designer wanted a glass-looking cap that would seamlessly blend with the bottle. Risdon manufactured the cap in co-polyester, which closely resembles glass in its appearance, weight and sound more than any other resin, according to company executives, who added that the Risdon cap makes a glass-like “clink” sound when it hits a hard surface.
“The extremely massive cap is obtained by over-molding an insert to guarantee perfect geometry,” said Gérald Martines, Crown Risdon’s sales director, Europe. “It’s flawless appearance and structure is the result of a proprietary injection process developed by Risdon to eliminate all crystallization marks normally generated by this material.”
Manufactured at the company’s Marolles, France facility, the distinctly curved fashion cap fits the 30-, 50- and 90-ml sizes for the new EDP scent.
“Crown Risdon has built a unique know-how in co-polyester and is considered the market leader in this technology,” continued Martines. “Co-polyester caps offer a more flexible design and a manufacturing alternative to glass at a fraction of the cost.”
