    Default what frag has the coolest bottle,,and why?

    Tell us why you like those in particular, and then give an example or two.

    I personally LOVE the heavy, weapons-grade glass bottles (very minimally artsy). For example, Gucci By Gucci, Bogart PH, and my new fav, Subtil by Ferragamo. The Subtil bottle is like a 2x4 of glass that has been slightly tweeked, end to end. If I ever get a burglar, and should fumble for my .45 auto (unlikely), I'll start whipping my heavy bottles, they'll take 'em out for sure, and probably won't sustain any damage.

    Of those I own: Bvlgari Aqva. Very unique and feels good in the hand, and the glass color is gorgeous.
    Others: Gucci pour homme. Clunky masculine flacon, together with the brown of the juice I think this looks really fantastic.

    I'm really fond of my Hugh Parsons Blue bottle. I love the blue glass, substantial metal bottom and top, and the cap is nice and heavy, solid metal.

    I like the minimalism of Malle, ditto with the Chanel exclusif's and Le Labo, but the best one of all is Caron's L'Anarchiste. A copper grave marker or a copper gas can.

    Dior Homme. The clean lines, silver tube in the middle, and even the moulded plastic lid are very cool.

    I like Encre Noire. CLASSY




    Diesel Green
    Real gnarly!

    I had this Indian friend who wore Cold by Bennetton and the bottle is awesome.






    AND, I love Diesel ++. IT's so eye-catching and energetic in its appearance.

    and its counterpart, Hot:




    These fragrances I listed are the coolest bottled- show me something cooler!

    It should be worn with the Oil Rig black/white:

    The Different Company. every section of it is unscrewable. the combination of solid metal components and heavy glass is just perfect to hold the juice inside...

    I like the design of Tom Ford bottles, for example Black Orchid.

    Well, Salvador Dali's frag always gets a laugh from friends.

    I personally like the 1st Dior PH bottle..simple, heavy and classic. I HATE bottles that you have to "lay down," ie, Black Cashmere.

    Default Re: what frag has the coolest bottle,,and why?

    Too many to count.

    For YSL, Opium pH is awesome. Optical illusions for the win! M7 is also great.

    Dior Homme / Dior Homme Sport are givens.

    L'Anarchiste - best-feeling bottle ever. Smooth copper. And over time, it gradually works with oxygen to discolour (and eventually turn green, I assume). Awesome!

    And from left field, CDG's synthetic line, with the "flexible bag" inside the bottle that gradually gets smaller as you use the fragrance. Awesome! I want to own one.

    YSL M7 bottle is sooo nice, as is Gucci PH.

    But I think the winner has to be Bvlgari Black, it's genius

    Default Re: what frag has the coolest bottle,,and why?

    There are so many, but those that come to mind are:
    The entire reformulated D'Orsay line, Dior Homme, Basala, Nicole Farhi Man, Gucci by Gucci pour Homme and the simplicity of Frederic Malle and the Serge Lutens exports. (I know the bell jars are very pretty, but I really love the medicinal export bottles and labels.)
    I also like the redesign of the Paco Rabanne bottle. It doesn't look fancy, just modern and functional. The sprayer is beautifully integrated into the bottle.

    I like

    Gucci PH--Thick, solid and the brown juice

    Versace PH--Love the blue juice with the silver and the Versace symbol on it

    Burberry London--I want to wear the juice and the material in cold weather

    I agree that The Different Company bottles are awesome. Metropolis (Fritz Lang, not Superman) design.
    I also love Idole de Lubin's design, despite the problematic Afro-exotism it connotes.

    I cracked open a bottle of Narciso Rodriguez to get the rest of the juice out and inside was a small bag just like those on the Synthetic series. Though you can't see it like you can with CdG.

    On one hand I love the simplicity, uniformity, and historical continuity of the entire Chanel line. My 1940s No.46 flacon is the same as a Chanel parfum flacon sold today. The Exclusifs are sold in the same bottles that 200ml Chanels have always been sold in. Similarly, I love that many Dior fragrances have always been in the same oval-shaped bottle and are still sold in the same bottle (i.e. Diorella, Diorama)

    I also love incredibly solid bottles - Dior Homme, Prada Amber, Hermes Bel Ami/Equipage.

    But ultimately the Guerlain Gold Bee bottle is my favorite.

    Although I don't care much for the bottles, but my favourite is Guerlain Coriolan. Very old school.
