    Default Love the Juice, Hate the Bottle!



    Was thinking about a thread like this yesterday but didn't know what to say and then got inspired by the other thread so I flipped the script. I won't own this scent cause of the bottle.

    What's yours? Will you own it or not cause of the bottle?

    I like how the bottle feels... but hate how I'm always scared it'll topple over.
    Love the juice though!

    Another entry from me...hehe. I know people rave about this bottle but I can't stand it. Although I love the juice so much it won't keep me from owning it.

    I dont dislike the bottle (neither the juice), on the contrary, to me the bottle has a vintage touch that make it lovely

    Juice is not bad, less refined La Nuit Del Homme, yet it has this something distinctive of its own. I think the bottle and the cap could and should be much better.

    Diesel Green Feminine

    It has a gorgeous, yet very strange, smell,
    but that flacon is damn ugly!


    ---EDIT---

    In the directory, it has 6 negative, 1 neutral, and zero positive reviews
    ... hmm, I guess I'm the only one, who actually likes the juice?!

    I like good bottles but the only thing that really matters is the spray mechanism. If the bottle truly sucks then I'll transfer the juice into a good plain glass spray bottle. Some of the shit bottles have excellent spray mechanisms, so it sometimes makes up for it.

    These are basic, but the quality is excellent - strong glass, spray mechanism connection to glass is tight and secure, puts out a good strong spray with appropriate choke (not too thin or too wide), and caps fit tightly. This place gives excellent service and sends all kinds of extras with each order.

    I love the Green Masculine version. Smells awesome and unlike most everything. I agree on the bottle design, not only is it ugly, but it has a cheap/flimsy spray mechanism that breaks all the time.

    Nemo - I think maybe the bottle killed this scent. It is really obnoxious.

    Ahhhh I have this in my wardrobe. The top spray of my bottle broke :/ Yup....PLASTIC

    The bottle looks so cheaply made, nice concept, but it could use more refinement.

    The juice inside to me smells like a non-spicy ginger + lime + lime rind + mandarin orange...but it doesn't exude a fresh fizzy citrus vibe, more like thick and sweet. Doesn't smell "Green" in terms of freshly cut grass 212 by Caroline Herrera or L'eau d'Issey, this is fruity lime + mandarin orange, smells like a strong lime flavoured fruity loop, but it does hold its uniqueness. Doesn't appeal to me that much, but still alright in my collection, wouldn't wear it outside though.

    Awesome juice, but I knock the bottle down everytime I use it, it's becoming a plague.

    Same here. The bottle is not practical. I either leave it lying down or squeeze it standing between a few other bottles.

    Ah!!! Sorry I wasn't able to insert the image but I would vote L'Occitaine Eav des bavx - I think it's a great, very affordable scent, but the bottle makes it look like it would cost $4 at Walmart.

    I also agree with the Ed Hardy bottle - never tried the juice but I think the bottle is lame.

    really uninspiring I have to admit, looks like aromatic bath oil, the cap is terrible. don't know why, but the bottle, the cap, the box overall reminds me of Mexico.

    I haven't found one I hate yet for its appearance.

    I would say that I don't like " short fat bottles" that take up lots of surface area on a shelf.

    Hey, I love Nostalgia. I think we were dissing the uninspired-looking bottle, not the juice.
