French term or phrase: givrée avec étui gaufré W
The context is the packaging for a new line of perfume. I'm hung up on the W (which appears in uppercase in the text). Is there a term "gaufré W"? A special type of embossing?

Thanks a lot,

"W"
Explanation:
Maybe W is the first letter of the name of the perfume--or its manufacturer?

Thank you for your suggestion. Although it did not become totally clear what the W stood for, it seems to be an identifier the manufacturer uses to distinguish the packaging from others.

a thin package in the shape of a W


Explanation:
I'm not sure, but according to my dictionary, gaufre means something thin, like a "waffle or wafer." Could the packaging be thin in the shape of a W?
