    Default Best Bottle (non-Niche)

    Department store bottles only please. My vote goes to:

    Gucci Pour Homme II - like a huge gem!

    and

    Body Kouros - a leather car supplement that should be attached on the front black leather seat of the Escalade

    If you liked the heaviness of Gucci Ph2 bottle, you may like NR for Him as well

    yes, although GPHII trumps NR for Him beyond Reason in scent composition, NR's bottle is definitely noteworthy.

    **MIGHT I ADD: an atomizer is CRUCIAL! GPH2's atomizer, suffice it to say, is GREAT, and Body Kouros's atomizer is amazing as well, a huge dash of explosive spray comes out with just one small press. That's the kind of ATOMIZER i like

    On the contrary, the WORST kind of atomizer is exhibited by the likes of CURVE by Liz Claiborne (just as an example). Those atomizers need to be pressed 5 times until you get a good amount out on the skin. How dare they waste our time like this.

    Yes, I also love the heaviness of the Gucci PH I and II bottles. (II looks better with the textured sturdy gold cap and blue juice IMO) Great bottles. I personally prefer the bottles of the Chanel exclusifs, No. 5 and its sisters, as well as the Allure Homme family. Minimal and luxurious! Guerlain's Shalimar, Vol de Nuit, and many others from the house are also some of my favorites because of their elegant 'timeless' look.

    What I don't like are 'tacky' but trendy bottles like CK Crave, Diesel Only the Brave, etc. (And of course... plain ugly stuff like Leonard pour Homme)

    A bit off topic, but I had to add little "weights" to my Montale bottles to make them heavier. They're so light it sometimes feel like there's nothing left inside.

    I've gotta say that John Varvatos Artisan gets my vote. And I absolutely hate rattan furniture... but on a bottle!? Not bad at all...

    Solo Loewe bottle looks really simple but there's an air of classiness to it. the cap (or maybe half a cap) is unique too. Kenzo Power bottle (or flask)...sake anyone ?

    I like BK's bottle but it's easy to tip over. I like M7's sleekness and color. Kouros tatoo edition is pretty cool, and Dior eau Savage and Polo double black are also good. And I've always had a thing for A*Men and B*Men bottles.

    I'll toss another vote towards GPH and GPH2, although you have to own the 100 ml size of those to truly appreciate it.

    However, the winner in my book is Dior Homme. The bottle looks classy on its own but that silver metal tube inside just makes it look faaaaaantastic.

    I really love the herbal green of Paco Rabanne Pour homme's bottle. The printed wordings are nice too, as is the bottle shape, though I would have preferred if it came with a cap instead.

    I have always thought Givenchy Pi is a tactile stunner. Sadly I am not too enthusiastic about the fragrance.........

    Matthew Paco Rabanne is quite nice. I also think an atomizer must be great with the bottle

    My favorite is Caron's L'Anarchiste - it's bold; it's fun; it's a little goth.

    Personally, I think no other bottle, after all these decades, has been able to quite surpass the sheer excellence of Guerlain's Vol de Nuit bottle ! (As can be seen by my avatar !).
    A perfect classic design ! ... (And I am still really quite partial to any bottle with "Deco" type stylings).

    Yes! Now that I think of it, that's my favorite bottle too. It's strange, but when I hear the term designer I tend to mentally exclude classic fragrances for absolutely no good reason.

    So many creative and impressive bottles out there. I'm going the other way though. You say BEST, and dept store at that. I say AdG. Simple, elegent, modern and minimal.

    I actually really like L'Homme's bottle design. I just dislike the juice within.

    Actually that's not fair. I don't dislike it - I just find it bland.
