    Default Red bottles (now with pictures)

    Last November, Shycat asked about blue perfume bottles that Basenoters found attractive. Sometimes, just for fun, I wish I could search a database of perfume by bottle shape or color.

    My weakness is for red, and I would love to know what red perfume bottles you find appealing -- opaque red, frosted red, clear with red accents, etc.

    From my wardrobe: Valentino V Absolu, Eau Parfumée au Thé Rouge, Brit Red, and Amor Amor.

    One word: Trouble.

    It's the only fragrance I have ever considered buying just for the bottle. Thank goodness I actually adore the fragrance too. It's weird but for some reason I get a great deal of satisfaction out of holding that bottle. (I have the cap with the serpent on it.)
    --------------------------------------
    OK- I guess I like the Costes bottle too, especially the 100 ml splash - although I can't quite make up my mind about the fragrance.

    I also enjoy my bottle of Boucheron's Trouble
    but more probably because of the cool snake on the cap.

    I find the old style MPG bottles to be cheap and tacky looking, esp. when you throw in the old gold plastic stoppers topped with that gaudy, faux faceted red plastic "gemstone." All I can think of when I see one of those stoppers is little girl dress-up jewelry from a dime store. The color of red itself (on the old MPG bottles) is pretty, yes, but that's all I can say in their defense.

    Latrelle: "What?"
    Peggy: "Brother Boy has tried to kill himself. He jumped out of his bedroom window."
    Latrelle: "Isn't he only on the second floor?"
    Peggy: "Yes, but he hit his head on a lawn gnome."

    I woke up thinking that was pretty obsessive of me, but then I thought, if not here, where?

And Quarry, I'm trying to fight my own compulsion to do every color of the rainbow.

    No kidding! "The perfume will only be available in Granado and Isabela Capeto shops at first before becoming more widely distributed in Brazilian perfumeries." I shouldn't have gone back to read the notes, because it sounds like something I might like (spicy, with cinnamon, cardamom, pink & black pepper), and its inaccessibility only makes it more tantalizing.
