    Default Ugliest perfume bottle in your collection?

    Do you have any "shockers" in your bottle collection.
    Mine has to be CINNABAR - boring and uninspired.

    Default Re: Ugliest perfume bottle in your collection?

    Chamade. I have the refill bottle and it is best kept in the back of the drawer. Seriously boring.

  3. #3

    Default Re: Ugliest perfume bottle in your collection?

    LouLou - for the cheap plastic look,

    Eden - for the out of shape and misproportioned botle

    Azzaro Now Woman/Man - gigantic glass sanitary towel...


    None of these in my collection. I haven't been using LouLou or Eden since late secondary school and Azzaro never made it to the collection - I just find the bottle hideous.

    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.

    Hm. Really ugly might actually influence how I felt about the perfume. Bottles are pretty important to me.

    I like Luca Turin's description of my beloved Ivoire de Balmain as "pleasantly dowdy"

    This one's pretty ugly, imo. I love the remark Tania Sanchez made about the bit under the cap looking like a Confederate flag on the back of a redneck's truck. I do love this bottle, though, probably because it is so tacky.


    Now here's one that isn't really ugly, some people might think it's beautiful as DK's husband designed it and he's an accomplished sculptor. But it really bugs me. I just hate this bottle...

    (And I really hate that the cap won't stay on!) This bottle just turns me off. It took me years to try this fragrance because the bottle repelled me. It looks like a Mary Kay bottle to me.

    p.s. There go my good intentions of saying nothing if I can't be positive. Apologies to DK's husband!

    I dislike black opaque bottles, as well as bottles that lie on their sides. Black Cashmere is both.
    I also dislike the Idole bottle, love the juice, but oh, the bottle.

    Gucci Rush - a horrible bottle- I have often thought that when browsing Sephora. Not fond of the Donna Karan Cashmere Mist either. I don't like Silver Rain's bottle- it looks dangerous !
    Lancome's Magie Noire- the new square bottle is horrid too .

    Agree on YSL Nu - speaking of the EDT here, which is a boring blue cylinder.

    Also EL Private Collection (dull), Bal a Versailles (plasticky) and if I am honest, the Opium Fleur de Shanghai (dull and plasticky!).

    I used the original Fendi as a signature scent for years....I loved the fragrance but always felt a little sad at how dull and bleh the bottle was.

    My bottle of Givenchy III is kind of boring, too.

    That said, I don't think I have anything that's aggressively ugly...although most of my collection does reside in decant bottles, lol. My prettiest is probably my Feminite de Bois (old Shiseido version) or Mitsouko miniature.

    I actually like that and I would also give it points for practicality - you just can't break that bottle (at least as easily as the "regular' perfume bottles).

    Really do not like the MDCI bust bottles--so reminiscent of over-confident lawn statuary. In that same regard (and this is going very much against the popular grain), the abstraction that is Organza Indecence, the cap of which (in pre-Alien days) reminded me of the headwear of a sci-fi monster as rendered in a cartoon and the bottle of which again strikes a statuary chord, perhaps this time set in the middle of a fountain in a suburban lawn.

  22. #22

    Default Re: Ugliest perfume bottle in your collection?

    Yes, I think the Organza Indecence bottle is fairly fugly, too. And I agree with you, Orion, about the MDCI bottles, too. I've only ever seen them in pics, but your description..."over-confident lawn statuary", is funny and apt! At least some bottles are ugly because they're meant to be tacky or purely functional. But the pseudo-arty ones are kinda funny.

    Yeah, Organza Indecence is my ugliest bottle. I keep it tucked away and out of sight.

    I also find my bottle of Parfums de Nicolai Vanille Tonka really ugly. It's not outrageously ugly like Organza Indecence, but it's just ugly in a sad way because the PdN packaging makes the fragrances look so cheap and undesirable when they're really very high-quality. I think that if PdN had very slick modern packaging the brand would be noticed a lot more. Of course, then they'd be priced a lot higher, so maybe I should appreciate the bottle!

    I'm glad someone brought up MDCI. The amazing thing is that they actually charge hundreds of dollars extra to have a tacky bust stuck on the bottle! I just cannot fathom that.

    It does fit, I agree. Nevertheless, ugly.
    Another contender (mercifully gone from my collection)

    A true Versace - most of their bottles look just as bad.

    LOL! I totally agree! It's very difficult to d*cant from and dribbles down the front even when I'm just spraying myself. I also dislike the plastic frame it's supposed to fit into, and one of the short flaps on the plastic box snapped off almost immediately. And why so much plastic? A transparent, plastic box? Seriously? Heavenly juice, though.

    Yes, the bottles are so OTT and top heavy - much like the Sisley Eau De Soir bottle which I do not have much love for despite how beautiful the SAs tell me they are and how collectible. I don't particularly like MPG bottles which seem to be the same kind Eau de Soir comes in minus the cap .

    Darwinia - the Versace is so very ugly - no proportion at all .
    An Oud Girl - I really thought I was looking at 2 'mouses' !!!!!!! I see now that one is minus the cord and is a perfume bottle ???

    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.

    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 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.
    Then I take back what I've said
    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.

    Definitely a Comme des Garcons girl.

    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
