...Idole de Lubin...
I like Sculpture by Nikos:
My favorites are puristic bottles, like the ones of Knize Ten, No. 5 and Armani Eau pour Homme.
Cartier Declaration is the most stylish and elegant item on my shelf. I do also like the refillable Hermes leather atomizer
Current Spring Favorites:
1. Creed - Spice & Wood
2. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
3. Dior - Vetiver
4. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men

Another Idole de Lubin fan, but I prefer the streamlined look of the edp version of the bottle (the same basic design as the gorgeous looking 3 new releases already mentioned). I also love the Mona di Orio house bottles... very classy.

Formidable Homme by Kesling
Can't pick an all time favourite but I really like the colonial crystal decanter stylings of Safari for men by Ralph Lauren.
Not a fan of the juice but Dior's Pour homme bottles are pretty cool. Gucci PH also!
Montana Homme now in the black edition.
I really enjoy the bottle design of YSL's original M7. It reminds me of metro New York.
I enjoy the Dior Homme line, Gucci Pour Homme I and II and the Terre d'Hermes bottle is nice too!!
CURRENT TOP 5
1. Dior Homme Intense
2. Creed Aventus
3. Tom Ford Extreme
4. Gucci Pour Homme II
5. Terre d'Hermes
GPH 1&2. Great weight, elegant, looked like expensive cologne.
ROCHAS MAN!!!.........just kidding!!! Seriously, though, I'd agree with GPH 2 & Terre d'Hermes (I love the twist down top on my bottle of TDH Parfum). There's also something simple, elegant & classy I love about the Guerlain L'Instant & Extreme bottles.
The Creed Royal Exclusive flacon is impressive.
One that stands out is the Amouage line. I love those bottles.
Agonist has some amazing bottles and I love some of the Opulent Sheik ones also.
Some others I like Tom Ford, Creed, Amouage are nice.
“Perfume is like cocktails without the hangover, like chocolate without the calories, like an affair without tears, like a vacation from which you never have to come back.”
I love the bottle for Prada Infusion de Rose. It works wonderfully with the pink juice and the rose colored top.
I also really like the old Rocabar bottle that came with the little blanket!
Current Top Five:
1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford
Two stand out for me. Eau Sauvage and the original Lalique bottles of Signoricci. Also, the new Eau Sauvage Parfum has a cool magnetic cap which I like...
I really enjoy the Guerlain bee bottles.
For edgy cubic genius: Gucci Pour Homme I and II, for Majestic Crystal the Creed Royal Exclusives, and for overall urban techno design Bulgari Black - the newer ones without the technical difficulties with the spray mechanism.
I think BANG by Marc Jacobs is more than worthy of a mention here, despite its tendency to topple over all too easily.
Versace The Dreamer is a beautiful bottle, lovely sprayer, excellent quality glass and the Medusa head is cool.
CK Obsession is definitely an iconic bottle, the juice is a lovely colour, the type face of the lettering is cool and I just think it's a great design.
I think John Varvatos Artisan and Artisan Black, with the wicker around the bottles, are way cool.
Encre Noire and YSL LaNuit ain't bad either. Bvlgari Black and Aqua are pretty neat, too. There are really alot of nice bottles out there...
I'm a bit of a minimalist when it comes to designs, graphics, and packaging: I tend to like bottles in simple shapes (cubic/cylindrical) and monochrome (that goes for labels or printed-on text, too), so these are my favorites:
Chanel Les Exclusifs and Dior La Collection Privée bottles (both series are graphically and conceptually beautiful and with excellent sprayers)
Lalique: Encre Noire
CdG: Luxe Patchouli (the cube bottle)
Hermès' cologne bottles
I also really like CdG's industrial-plasticky Series 6 Synthetic.
Thierry Muglers Miroir series... (albeit the wooden box with mirrors around it is a bit over the top IMO)
Except if you happen to get air into the (jesus what is it called....gah!) "plastic thingy that sucks the juice" you can't see it, 'till bottle starts becoming empty.
I like a lot of Bvlgari's bottles, but they tend to have a few parts that are plastic-like when it would be proper for them to be metal or whatever like the rest of the bottles (doesn't feel right)... Like Au thé rouge for example. Thick glass, metal 'badge', thena damn lightweight plastic cap......why why....
