    "One Million" by Paco Rabanne. It looks like a 24K gold bar!

    (I also love the commercial for the 2008 campaign: a tribute to the modern dandy. I only wish the chap was a "sporting dandy"--athletic and active, not just fine clothes, casinos, a hot set of wheels and women.) LOL!

    The YSL L'Homme bottle is also very nice and angular, with the clean planes pf glass and hexagonal cap.

    I also like the Gucci by Gucci PH bottle too.

    here's a great one that's unisex, bulgari's black,

    the black part is made from rubber, it is reminiscent of a tire. and guess what, it has a cheeky note of rubber in it.

    i think perfume bottles for women are much better in general. my vote goes to angel,

    actually angel comes in several great designs! there's one that i like in particular, but i can't find the image. it was a limited edition pure parfum.
    it's pure eye-candy! (but also a great concept, including the scent itself, the name, etc.)

    I think your love of the fragrance is blinding you to just how ugly that Body Kouros bottle is. YUCK!

    Some of my favorite designer bottles are

    Le Roy Soleil (cheap cap, tho )
    L'Anarchiste
    Fleur du Male
    NR for Him
    Versace PH (the attention to detail on this bottle is REALLY nice, especially given the price range. Small things like the medusa head engraved into the top of the atomizer, really make all the difference).

    Iris Pallida 50ml

    Ungaro I 75ml

    Good to see my favorite fragrance, Gucci Pour Homme 2, with several mentions. It's great ain't it? THe bottle and the smell. I still can't believe Marshalls has it for $24.99! That's a steal. I still have more than half my bottle remaining, but I'm thinking about getting another bottle for backup.

    Yup, I've always liked the Bvlgari Black "puck" as some have referred to it (although given the rubber motif it certainly does make more sense to think of it as a tire), as well the fragrance itself. Bvlgari seem to do pretty well with their bottles in general - Aqua's is also quite eye-catching.

    Again, simply unbeatable. Beautiful perfection, proportionality, and vivid vitality with the unprecedented blue. Even better, the scent is unbelievable.

    Oh yeah, it blows Encre Noire's CAP out of the water!

    Perhaps if GPH2's "stem" of the atomizer could be a bit more aligned as evidenced in Dior Homme Sport; however, it still is amazing.

    Ah yeah, most definitely on this "Noir" bottle ! ... This is the only frag that I have bought blind for the bottle alone. I, unusually, did not care two hoots if the frag was decent or not ... I just had to have that gorgeous bottle ! ... And it feels just totally awesome in your hands too !
    I have been searching for a mini of this one for ages, to add to my collection (as it must look just like a lighter, I imagine ) ! ... But have unfortunately never been able to hunt one down. If anyone has any clues on this, please do let me know !

    the original brut was wonderful!

    can't find a picture, only a modern retro version,


    the gucci 2 does not really excite me that much.

    azarro pour homme on the other hand, very well done,


    awesome iconic greatness.

    They're not really comparable in terms of smell, but Dior Homme is the better smell in my book. More people would be able to "pull off" the Sport version though.

    was at the mall earlier and i tried it and i really liked it. it feels like you just put on a million bucks because you can "swish" the cap back on by swinging it fast in the air. its Attitude. And it smells great!! I really liked it.

    I think the newest Artisan by John Varvatos is just beautiful - I wish the juice inside was as good.

    now that artisan bottle made me think of this.

    this article explains nicely (of another bottle, prastara) why is was designed as it is.

    and who knows, maybe you'll like this juice better?

    I second John Varvatos Vintage, Bulgari Black, and Gucci Pour Homme II. I quite like A Scent by Issey Miyake.. although I'm not sure if he's niche? I'm still new and have no idea

    Is A Scent by Issey targeted for men? What's it going to smell like?

    Yes, I must say this new Issey Miyake bottle does indeed look very interesting ! ... And as far as the scent itself, I think it's gonna be a masculine scent (though I could be incorrect).

    It is supposed to pay tribute to the "poetry of minimalism" (surprise, surprise, there ) ... And to be inspired by the smell of the Japanese mountains. ...
    It's a woodsy-floral-green-citrus frag with notes of French Verbena, Jasmine, Galbanum (the only three notes I have been able to find for it so far !)

    The bottle is pretty cool looking ! ... I really like the idea of the bottle getting "fatter" as opposed to "larger", with the different ml sizes.
