    Default What is your favorite perfume bottle color?

    I love my perfumes, however their original bottles are lackluster. I have begun depoting them into beautiful crystal bottles. It's easy.
    When I pick the bottle up, it is like holding a large gem. It helps in this stressful world, by adding a small amount of beauty to my life. It makes me feel nostalgic and feminine, it makes me smile. I think the fragrances deserve a beautiful bottle. So far I have pink, red...hard to find, lavender. Hope to acquire blue and green. I match the crystal bottle to the fragrance mood. What is your favorite color and thoughts on the subject?

    Several thoughts from a non-collector of bottles:

    1. Perfumes have less exposure to air if they remain in their original spray bottles. I would think they'd deteriorate faster if decanted into a splash type container. But of course, some perfumes' original packaging is splash to begin with.
    2. If I did decant into a splash container, I'd want the size of the receiving bottle to be in line with the volume of perfume being put in, so that there would not be a lot of head space with air (again, to reduce deterioration.)

    I do enjoy looking at blown-glass perfume bottles at craft boutiques, though. I think I like the ones with multiple colors best.

    I agree. That is why I buy the ones with the smaller chamber, and or they have a screw on dauber with a rubber seal. I can't put the original bottles on my dresser, even if the bottle were pretty due to them being clear.
    With the new bottles being colored, it help protect the fragrance.

    I love black bottles like the vintage Liu by Guerlain ,Arpege etc. I also think cobalt blue bottles are beautiful as in the Coque d'Or blue bow bottles also by Guerlain.

    Default Re: What is your favorite perfume bottle color?

    Since I don't own or purchase any rare, expensive, limited-editions, collectible bottles, I am pretty much utilitarian about my fragrance, including its outer package and thus I tend to like far more, from the generic, serially produced, easily purchasable bottles the simple, plain transparent ones - so I can get a better look at the liquid inside them

    Yes Tom Ford's 'chess piece' bottles are quite something - the big 450 ml bottles are hefty and the SA told me they are of Baccarrat crystal ( not sure if that is true ! ) ?

    I don't collect bottles either but I really like the colored ones, especially the cobalt blue ones. I think it does help the scent stay fresh longer too.

    I like brown and smoke-coloured glass. Black is nice, too, the Piguet bottles with their stark deco lettering, may be my favourite bottle design.

    One thing is the color the bottle should be, and another your personal taste. For personal taste I think the Vetiver by Guerlain is the most beautiful bottle around. Now for the color the bottle should be, read my next entry

    Light is one of the worst enemies of perfumes, so the ideal bottle should be of a dark color that allows little light (or none) to go through (also do not forget to keep your perfumes in a rather cool and dark place). The second factor to consider is the transparency of the bottle to let you know how much perfume is left, I hate to pick up a non transparent bottle of perfume and after one or two sprays to find out you have run out of perfume, so you do not get enough and can not apply another perfume over the one just applied, very frustrating!!!!!. In sum, it has to be transparent bottle but of a dark color, therefore, the ideal bottle color for me is the dark amber color of Halston Z-14/1-12

    i like opaque "regular" crystal bottles like many lalique, i also like the dark blue crystal bottles.

    on design (not color) , i like the sometimes very intricate Czechoslovakian bottles.

    Interesting topic here. Personally I like Green, then dark red, then aqua blue. But green is a favorite of mine. I like the looks of the classic Brut bottle, its so pretty. I think that's my main reason I enjoy green. The appearance of the bottles themselves defiantly do make life happier. Its a bit like art in a museum, you cant help but feel amazing within when you admire the colour and beauty. The bottles are very important and must be matched with the right fragrance.

    If the bottle is empty, almost any color is better than clear... unless the bottle is of very bright crystal, has a great label, or is in a very interesting shape.

    However, when there is perfume inside, I really prefer clear glass or a very pale glass color, since I like to see the perfume inside.

    And if a bottle has a spritzer, I really prefer 'gold' hardware. A sparkly clear bottle, richly colored perfume and gold accents... that's nice!

    I like really simple and elegant bottle. Usually clear bottles with a white label or black, brown, deep colours. Packaging is really important to me so it has a lot to do with why I buy that particular brand/bottle.

    I just got this one and decanted my perfume into it:



    I'm not so much worried about the light (the original bottle was clear anyway and my bedroom is shaded) and deterioration because this is my most beloved and often worn perfume. I will run out and need to buy more before it goes bad.
