    Lightbulb Most Beautiful Bottles

    There is a thead here on the ugliest perfume bottles/containers. I was just wondering why we couldn't have the opposite. The most attractive and beautiful ones. I'll start with this classic:



    There was a similar thread started on the Male Fragrance forum but it was for bottles in one's collection. I don't have this in mine, just think it exquisite. So this not limited to what you have.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    They don't sell Hermes in Texas? lol. You have to try them and see the bottles in person! I had to have all three! They look especially nice in natural lighting with a little sunlight in the room. -

    1. I live in Spokane WA.
    2. Unless you live in one of the larger metropolises it doesn't matter if you live in Texas or Washington. Very few of the cities of Spokane's size have any kind of fragrance selection in the local stores, which are limited to the middle class pocket book.
    3. I have never seen the bee bottle of Guerlain's either. This thread wasn't about what one owns or has seen, but rather which bottles have delighted your eye, wherever they were seen (in my case, on-line only).

    Neil I like your Dior homme intense. Very elegant!

    petruccijcm yours is rather um...phallic. But of course there is nothing wrong with phallic, LOL. I bet it does fit well in hand. No, no, no innuendo! In fact it is somewhat like my specimen of a paleolithic handax. You can tell it was made for the human hand.

    By the way Neil could not help but notice your avatar of "Bond, James Bond" in From Russia with Love. So I insert that film's femme fatale.


    Curious minds wish to know what she's wearing, besides that black ribbon.

    This bottle is circa 1983 when it was introduced. The later bottles are not near as elegant as this original.

    This bottle design was probably made by a horny hetro lady or a horny gay man

    I think I personally love the Dior Homme bottles most too. They just seem sharp and classic looking. I like Tom Ford too.
