    Default Bad Fragrance, Beautiful Bottle

    I'm just curious if there are any others here that have a fragrance or two that you don't particularly like (or outright hate), but you keep it in your collection because the bottle is beautiful?

    For me, that would be Versace Eros. Not a fan of the scent, but the bottle is a beauty in my eyes:

    Idole de Lubin. Although I liked the scent, the longevity was terrible so I got rid of it. The bottle is one of the best though.

    Formidable Bleu Homme. Not overly crazy about the scent and haven't worn it for a while but think the bottle's nice. (119)

    For a certain reasons, I like most Hugo bottles by Hugo Boss more than most of the fragrances in the range.

    Wouldn't necessarily call them beautiful/bad but the bottles of Bulgari Blu and Blu Notte looked pretty neat. The scents didn't quite manage to leave the same impression.

    I love L'Artisan Parfumeur bottles but I was turned off by the longevity the house is known for.

    Gucci Made to measure, love the bottle, the frag though follows "Gulity" line in style and the way it smells.

    IB by MDCI to redundant and barber shop smell inspiring: this smell is good but bottle toooo gorgeous for simplistic smell, don't get wrong is not a horrible smell is likable but for this bottle it should be a scent that should blow the senses of any walking being but is so bland and familiarly redundant .

    How could I have forgot this one?! I bought a 50ml bottle about a year ago and still can't bring myself to wear it.
