    Default Best company in bottle design

    I believe most of the time bottle design affect our judgement about a fragrance. usually we talk about lasting or quality of a perfume, but we forget design. If it's not true, so why companies waste their time for designing. Some of them attend this subject, spend their time and money for their production, and make without defect perfume.
    For example using black color and woody cap for Encre Noir is completely competence. When you see the bottle, without sniffing you can predict what it is.
    Or if one person didn't hear about Kouros before, In first sniff maybe he(she) confuses. because of white bottle. on habit i expect light or cold scent by seeing white color.

    Ok I know I'm a little bond no.9 fanboy but I think their bottle design looks spectacular - they're modern and trendy but not too ridiculous and entirely unique. Recoloring the bottles for every edition rather than changing the shape to retain the image was a pretty solid move.

    +1 on everything Vladdy said about Bond. Going in the other direction, Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme was one I initially skipped over as I first started exploring fragrances due to what was a boring bottle design to me. It turns out that it would probably make my top 10.

    Couldn't agree more! Bottles from Bond No. 9 are a piece of art! I haven't smelled any of their creations but I'd buy all the bottles only for their looking; to have them on my shelf admiring them all day long.

    Kenzo is most creative. some of them follow a template to design. like Amouage, Annick Goutal, Creed, Hermes,...

    From the list, my favorites are kenzo and amouage.
    But in my case, design doesn't affect me at all when choosing a fragrance. I pay attention more to the notes and to the perfumer than to the design itself. To me, all fragrances could be sold in plain dark bottles and I would'nt care att all, as long as the juice inside of them are marvelous.
    Besides Bond Nº9, i'm also missing ramon molvizar on that list. They really have stunning bottles to their fragrances:

    Iinterestingly, I note that most of the niche scents pick one design, and everything comes in a variation of that same bottle.

    Designer frags are all about the bottle design.

    They do this for two purposes: create a collection identity and to tone down the costs related to bottle. They spend less with the bottle if they use a variation of the same bottle with all fragrances, and then they focus (or should focus) in better fragrance materials. And, besides that, going on a bottle standardization makes you concentrate your impressions in the juice, that's the main purpose of a niche scent.

    I had to give it to Kenzo. I love all the bottle designs they have. Kenzoair Intense, Kenzo Power, and Pour Homme get the nod as being especially great on the men's side, the female bottles are also very appealing.
    I refuse to sink.

    Lalique. There's something about the bottle shapes and etchings that make them artefacts in themselves.
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....

    Annick Goutal for me. I like it when houses use standardized bottles, and I like the rectangles used by Annick Goutal and Diptyque. I got a bottle of Korres too, and it's fantastic in the rectangle format too. I've also liked the aluminium bottles that Fragonard, CSP, and Montale use.

    Kenzo is creative and artistic.

    Amouage is luxurious and diffirent.

    Dior is beautiful.

    I hate Annick Goutal bottles. They are look cheap and old. But, Annick is so much more beautiful than Bond.

    What a pity I don't see Comme des Garcons here. CdG is the best company in bottle design IMO.

    I voted for "Other", since the simple and classic bottle designs of Chanel, Penhaligons or ADP never cease to amaze me in their classy understatement

    they are as basic as you can get.
    the inclusion of the word "especially" makes me think this is a joke.
    is there any difference between chanel bottles apart from the sticker?

    Yeah, really! Their EdP flacons has the single most gorgeous bottle design
    on the market ... the EdT bottles are nothing special, though, looks fake!

    I voted Amouage & Goutal (and other).

    I guess I like a 'house' look and both of these cover their Masculine / Femme lines really nicely and the Amouage Attars are perfect. Other lines whose look I like include Malle, Heeley, Hermessences 15ml, The Different Company incl. Travel Set (masterpiece of contemporary design IMO), Villoresi (very cool), Lutens and the new Maison Francis Kurkdjian.

    One offs . . . 10 Corso Como, Hotel Costes, Cartier Declaration, Voyages d'Hermes, Patou Pour Homme, Guerlain Bees, Creed Flacons.

    Personally, my favorite fragrance bottle is the Encre Noire EDP, but as a house on a whole, my vote goes to Burberry. As someone said, designer houses generally have to concentrate on bottle design, and between Burberry London, Brit and the Beat (especially the Beat Intense Elixir), I think they have the most unique and interesting bottles.

    Best house as a whole, I believe I'd give it to Micallef.

    I love the bottles in Tom Ford's Private Collection. Also Bvlgari and Ralph Lauren

    I could name a bunch individually -- London, Dirty English, Safari.. but that defeats the purpose.. it's actually hard picking a house with all excellent bottles.

    I have a personal preference for the uniform, classy, simple look of a collection of Lutens spray bottles. But when it comes to edginess and creativity, I would say CDG.

    While they aren't my favorite bottles, I had to include Paco Rabanne in my vote, as I think the bottles for 1 Million as well as the Ultraviolet series are interesting, innovative, and really mesh well with the fragrances within.

    My other votes went to Amouage (classy - and I love the pedestal box packaging, too!), and Jean Paul Gaultier, almost solely because of the Le Male and especially the FdM bottles. Gaultier^2 was a cool concept too, even though I hated the frag!
