    Default Best Bottle Design in the Universe!

    It's definitely Body Kouros..a LEATHER overtone when you grab it, dark and black, does anything trump that? The Creeds are just glass/metallic which suck, BK has a black leather glove mold all around it, making it the best bottle

    I rest my case.

    The Body Kouros bottle is hideous. It looks like it's going to tip over at any moment. I hate that bottle.

    Agreed. The juice itself is awesome stuff, and I should probably buy a bottle of it soon, but the bottle itself is nothing special at all.

    I don't really have any specific bottle from my collection that really stands out, they're all very boxy and "traditional". B*Men with the nice red start that stands out is probably the most interesting, but it's nothing special.

    What? Hideous? On the contrary. what else trumps it, then? Creed? It's just metallic...what I love about BK is that it has a grip to it when you hold it.

    Bulgari Aqua is the only other good bottle that comes to mind.

    You're joking right. Of course Creed bottles are better. There's a simplicity and cleanliness to their design that is very appealing. I can't believe you picked Aqua as you're other favorite, that too has a poor design.

    Dudester!, here's a hint. Just because you love a fragrance, does not mean that every other peripheral aspect of the fragrance (box, bottle, name, etc) is the best ever.

    I know that loving the juice can make one biased towards the bottle and what not - i'm sure it happens to most of us - but to suggest that the Body Kouros bottle is better than EVERYTHING is a bit far fetched. I think this is especially apparent because the bottle for BK doesn't really allude to what's inside of it. Some bottles match the scent perfectly (Amouage does well in this regard, usually.. Lyric Man and woman, especially! Also Encre Noire, as posted by Young Dro above.). BKs bottle is just functional, and barely, at that.

    To me, the classic, simple, puristic bottle design along the lines (although different between each other) of Chanel Antaeus, Chanel No.5, Armani PH remains, if not the best, then the one displaying the most heightened and most tasteful artistic sense, in their understated beauty.

    Yes, hideous, one of the most cheap, nasty, unappealing and impratical bottles ever (second only to the original DKNY). Wonderous juice though.

    What trumps it? Well let's see, apart from the outrageous like the special edition Lalique bottles, Hypnose Homme has a fabulous design of bottle. Ice Men is ingenious. And I always thought Ultraviolet Man was pretty funky. I could go on...

    After all these years, I still get a kick out of holding the Acqua di Parma bottle. The elegant simplicity somehow echoes the contents perfectly.

    Hm, well I thought it was awesome because of it simplicity...leather around it too, so how could you not like that? What other fragrance (non-niche) has a LEATHER hold to it? Glass colognes are so prevalent that the leather bind associated with BK when picking it up is awesome...and the scent is definitely a top 5.

    I think it should be, like, attached to the interior of a Benz S-500 Class, with interior black leather seats, as BK fits that well. You would find it on the side of the leather seat. "Free YSL Body Kouros attached as a complimentary addition to the valor and presentation of the black leather interior" - LoL, yeah sounds too crazy, but I thought it'd be cool.

    Bulgari Aqua's design isn't so great, I take it back. But I do have GUCCI Pour homme II and that design definitely is great too.

    I think 1 Million by Paco is also a cool bottle, not so big and loud, but simple and narrow, so it's not annoying to pick up.

    The one bottle I cannot STAND ever to pick up (and HORRIBLE smell, too!) is Bulgari BLACK.

    THAT design, if you ask me, is atrocious. So taxing to hold in the palm of your hand, let alone spray it!

    I think the 4oz. black bottle of Green Irish Tweed is by far better than Body Kouros. Just for starters.

    Love the Antidote bottle. And the juice. Understated elegance with just a touch of quirkiness with the melting cap.

    Hi there,



    The shape is very simple and hand-friendly, so to speak. I love the frag as well, but that's irrelevant in this discussion.

    Take care.

    Who gives a flip about the bottle? It's the juice inside that matters. As long as the juice arrives in a glass bottle with a quality sprayer, I'm happy. Everything else is excess that I'm not keen to pay for.

    I think it is PLEATHER, not LEATHER.
