The Caviar Eco Collection consists of four iPhone 12 'flavors': Alpine Chamomile, Spicy Rose, Alpine Cornflower and Vanilla Coffee. And these scents aren't just limited to Apple's current flagship phones; when the iPhone 13 is released, these aromas will be offered on the new Pro and Pro Max models as well. 

As the name suggests, this collection is eco-friendly, biodegradable and 'biodesigned'. If you're wondering what that means, Caviar explains that, "Biodesign is not just an artistic direction, it is an ingenious scientific solution! Its goal is to find elements of wild nature and integrate them into modern high-tech life to create psychological and aesthetic comfort for a person."

Vanilla Coffee starts at $6,140 (approximately £5,420 / AU$10,100) for the Pro 128GB, going up to $7,730 for the Pro Max, "will give you comfort and tranquility, despite the fast pace of modern life."

Alpine Chamomile, priced $6,220-$7,450 (£4,580-£5,490 / AU$8,500-AU$10,180) "is a declaration of love, a tribute to and admiration for the magnificent nature of our planet."

Spicy Rose, costing $5,980-$7,120 (£4,400-£5,240 / AU$8,170-AU$9,730) "pursues a great goal - the care and preservation of our beautiful nature".

And Alpine Cornflower, which likewise sells for $5,980-$7,120 (£4,400-£5,240 / AU$8,170-AU$9,730) "is a tribute to the splendor of our planet. Smooth lines, natural materials and a delicate aroma of nature itself. Don't the modern residents of megacities experience the lack of it?"
