    Which bottle do you think is most nicely designed? (Me, I vote for Etiquette Bleue (D'Orsay).)

    I have to say Bulgari Black. Both the name and the bottle fits the scent more than any other scent I've ever tried.

    Pi (Givenchy)!

    You have good taste! Those D'Orsay bottles are gorgeous and a work of art in themselves. I have a bottle of D'Orsay's Arome 3, which comes in the same bottle as Etiquette Bleue. Love the way they feel so heavy in the hand.

    Two other bottles that I really like are:

    - the traditional Trumper's bottle with frosted glass and the crown stopper - very elegant-looking; and

    - the Eau de Rochas Pour Homme bottle - heavy glass with a crazed, cracked appearance and texture. Nice bit of modern design, that conveys a feeling of frenzy.

    The first one that came to my mind was Guerlain's Vétiver, though there are some others that fall as the rain if I close my eyes and think...

    I prefer the house bottle concept. Especially examples by:

    L'Artisan Parfumeur
    Creed
    Caron (PuH, Yatagan, 3eme Homme)
    Lorenzo Villoresi
    Etro
    Diptyque.

    House bottles I don't like are those by:
    MPG
    SL export line
    Givenchy (nice flask bottle, but the black cap looks cheap and inferior)
    Caswell-Massey

    Yang and Antaeus. I also like the design of the Black Cashmere bottle, but it loses points because there is no way to stand it up.

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    I really like the new Dior Homme bottle design ... with that little metal tube in the middle and stuff...

    But my all-time fave because of it's uniqueness ... the juice as well as the bottle ... has to be DK Men.

    Nemo by Cahcharel all the way for me, the only reason I still have it in my collection is because it is a sleek beautiful piece of art representing the 'Y' chromosome I suppose

    I also like the bottle of On El, even though impractical, the frosted green tall bottle is bueatiful.

    Creed bottles are nice and elegant.

    I too love this one. Nemo's bottle is unique and appealing--a sleek black enigma with the "Nemo" in just ever so slightly less black (more gray) lettering. An objet d'art!

    And the Different Company bottles are excellent design examples as well along the lines of the Dior Pour Homme bottle. The concentric stacked discs that make up the metal caps set off the heavy square glass bottles. And don't forget they come in their own little black leather covers. Very fetish.

    I'm not going to play a "sophisticate" but I'd use some nominations:

    Old-school classic - Signoricci (a perfect one by Lalique)
    Contemporary classic - all pre-Allure Chanel's (both Pour Monsieur's, Antaeus and both Egoiste's)
    Art Deco (well, sort of) - Jaipur Homme EDP (metal one)
    Mainstream - Gucci Envy FM or Montblanc Presence
    Alternative (rectangular/cubic, say, "anti-bottles&quot - Gucci PH / Michael FM / M7
    Avantgarde - DK Men and Comme des Garcons (soap-bar likes: EDP, 2, 3)

    Special prize - Coriolan (it's just brilliant)

    Regards, Odor.

    Salvador by Salvador Dali - frosted bottle along the edges, stained glass effect front and back with indented design in the middle of the bottle - very different.

    A*Men by far... The way you put the bottle in the metal case and then you see the shape of the womens angel standing out is an amazing idea...

    I like a lot of those previously mentioned.

    Quasar
    Gucci PH
    Kenzo PH
    Romeo Gigli
    the (new) Hermes bottles
    Top 3: London Gentleman, Blackbeard's Delight, and Sex Panther. (It works 60% of the time, every time.)

    Not for the first prize, but from those I own ,I prefer the bottle of Boss Elements.
    The texture of the waves in the lower end fits well with the TV ad: "When was the last time you felt all the elements?
    It's never too late to mend.

    I'm a big fan of simple, square or round bottles. Diptyque, the limited edition Diors and most of the CdGs. Another favourite is Burberry Brit! You can spot from miles away that it's a Burberry and still it is very elegant and understated.
