Thread: The best bottle designs
From an aesthetic viewpoint, my all-time favorite bottles are the Tom Ford private blends in with the globular stoppers. Black bottles wit gold detailing are just my thing, and it just really appeals to my sense of luxury, and what luxury ought to look like.
From a practical standpoint, something that stands up, is hard to tip over, easy to hold, and has a spray nozzle. Some brands I like are pretty bad in this respect ( domino-like Lutens exports and various Comme des Garcons rolly rounded shapes ).
I love the simplicity of Lutens and Byredo. Lalique bottles are also gorgeous, my mother used to collect them. And I don't think that Guerlain should be left out.
I not only like a perfume, more like the bottle ! so special !
love Guerlain bottles: Montre, mushroom, rosebud, fan, bee bottles and especially LHB and Mitsouko perfume bottles.
Chanel exclusives are a very classy modern design.

Midnight in Paris. Great bottle.
I love the classic Chanel bottles and Jean Patou Joy (vintage). I love them for their simplicity, timelessness and gravitas. I have a few vintage bottles and some still have a little bit of juice left in them. I also like the look of the new Chanel Coco Noir.
The new Agent Provocateur Petale Noir looks great, but it's not out yet, so I don't know how it actually looks or feels in the hand. I love the engraving and the shape of the bottle. I also agree with senore01. Midnight in Paris is beautiful.
I love the classic Guerlains; the bouchon coeur and bouchon quadrilobe...

Also love Vero Profumo's extraits, with their baroque bottles and contrasting geometric stoppers.
The Angel extrait bottle, striking without being frou-frou.

And the Miss Dior extraits.

And lots of others, but these come to mind for now.
I really like the Dirty English bottle. It looks inspired by a Jack Daniels whiskey bottle, and the leather and metal bits on the cap look like something inspired by the stuff Johnny Depp had on his wrists in Pirates of the Carribean.
Not necessarily THE best, but I saw one I liked.
BTW, is resurrecting slightly older threads prohibited now?
Resurrecting historic threads isn't normally encouraged in the fragrance discussions for a variety of reasons but I think this one could stand an update
A thread in FFD about whether stereotypical 'feminine' bottles are irritating, offensive or humiliating was revived recently so this thread should be fine provided it doesn't overlap with that one!
