    I don't have it and have never seen it up close but I remember reading it is considered almost "kult" these days. I'd buy one!

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    The MJ hologram *facepalm* - IMO beats Bond's sparkly bling hands down in "tacky"
    The one on the left of Lempicka (Cotton Blossom) and the last bottle of the whole selection (Lambada slugs) - poor, misshapen Quasimodos, absolutely vile.

    Quick question - how do you all insert images into your posts? I still don't know how to do that. Hilarious thread btw.

    Oh, dear LORD. There are some UGLY bottles out there! The moral of the story? Either go very minimalist (Classic Chanel, New Lutens, etc...) or get a powerhouse to design for you (Baccarat or Lalique for Guerlain, for example)

    Has Simon Pearce ever designed a mass market bottle? Come the Revolution, when I am named Philosopher Queen, I'll have him design the bottle for L'Eau de Mo.
    Do you think "Old Lady Perfume" is a compliment? Join the Scent of an Old Woman Social Group and chat in-depth about vintage and classic fragrances!

    There's a fine line between cute/quirky/unique and tacky/sappy/ugly! I actually like quite a few of the examples posted as members of the former category (quirky). I also think quite a few of them worked in the parfum incarnation, but didn't work as well in the cheaper EDT or EDP version. The Donna Karan Femme is a good example. The EDP looks like a duck, while the parfum reminds me of a regal African Queen.

    I agree with you there - the parfum version is like sculpture- it's quite beautiful .

    However an homage in plastic ... - seriously I hope it's not.
    I don't mind the shape per se but a simple shape combined with cheap-looking plastic makes one ugly bottle.

    No, its not plastic. The bottle is glass and the top is metal.

    I actually really like the LouLou edp spray...more so than the parfum. I think it may have been the inspiration for some of the Mugler Alien packaging.

    Any bottle that won't stand upright is a pet peeve of mine. Won't stop me from buying/wearing, but how the hell do you store them? In particular, some of the CDG's and Azzaro Woman Now. YSL Nu is a little strange..

    I love both of those, I must confess, and also the Alien citrine colored bottle:

    I can see how some might think it's ugly, but I can't tear my eyes away and I want to hold it in my hand.

    My Eau d'Italie bottle really stands out, and not in a good way. I guess it's unique, and the bottle is actually high quality glass, but it just doesn't look nice next to the others in my collection. Confirms that I'm more drawn to a fragrance in a nice bottle/box.

    I think it would be Eau d'Iparie by L'Occitane - the bottle is in old-fasioned style, very heavy. I don't like it, so I keep it hidden

    Is it bad that I like a lot of these? I'm going to say no Ugliest bottle in my collection is probably Tocade...but it's a 100ml bottle and flippin huge, so it looms over the rest from the back of the cupboard
