Elie Bleu’s Flor De Alba Motif Now On Lighters And Cutters
Elie Bleu, the French luxury manufacturer of humidors and cigar accessories, has taken its signature Flor de Alba humidor motif and put it on its J-15 torch lighter and EBC-4 cigar cutter collection. The lighters and cutters come in three different colors and will be on full display this weekend at the PCA trade show in Las Vegas.
Offered in red, black and blue, the lacquer finishes of the cutters and lighters are UV durable and color-coordinated with Elie Bleu’s Flor de Alba humidors and ashtrays. The JC-15 torch lighter features a slide cap dust resistance ignition system, an easy-adjust fuel system and a fuel window with a monitor. The EBC-4 cigar cutters are made with surgical stainless steel blades and also feature an auto-open system.
The lighters will retail for $240, whereas the cutters will retail for $230. Both should be on the market by August of this year.
The French maker has built a reputation for creating high-end products, perhaps none as recognizable as the Flor de Alba line of humidors, which have been in production for over two decades. The famous design evokes old Havana and vintage lithography with its colorful rendering of traditional allegorical figures.
Premium cigar makers often commission the nearly 50-year-old company to create limited-edition products, such as the Cohiba 50th Anniversary humidors, Oliva limited-edition humidors and a complete Fuente Fuente Opus X collection of cigar accessories.
Elie Bleu products are distributed in the U.S. by Reyns International in Warwick, Rhode Island.
