    Default What is your tallest bottle?

    I know.. kind of an odd question.. I always have trouble placing my "A Time for Peace by Kenzo" fragrance on the shelf because.. well.. it's simply too tall. It's a narrow bottle, but it stands at about 7 or 8 inches tall if I had to guess (and it's only 3.4 oz).

    My Rive Gauche Light, Cuba Gold, Paris Hilton, Leau par Kenzo, Escada Sunset Heat, Bijan B Exquisite, and Agua Verde probably come in at 2nd, as they are all around 6 inches tall.

    It is not the size of the bottle that matters. It is how you use the bottle. Don't be shy of your little bottles.

    Probably Yohji Homme. Serge Lutens L'eau is kind of tall.

    Funny question, but some fragrance collectors, including me, actually have trouble with this. Tall bottles don't fit into my storage system. I have several packed away in a drawer, and I have a tendency to forget about them there.

    Many tall bottles are easily knocked over. The new Derby bottle, for example. Slim, tall, elegant - easy to crash.

    Such problems we Basenoters have.

    An extra-sized bottle of 4711, but this being said, the vast majority of my fragrance bottles are of average sizes, especially in terms of height.

    I know what it is, but I don't have it. I don't even know the name of the thing, but it's a very thin, very tall bottle with blue juice. I saw it at the Scent Bar.
