    To be honest the bottles I like the most are 50 ml Lutens' ones. Sleek and really simple. I really do not like complicated designs, or actually any kind of specific shape/decoration that could somehow identify the scent. I prefer plain bottles.

    You probably don't. I don't. It's just a word being mis-used. It's sort of like how people in some parts of the south (in the U.S.) call any soft drink a Coke. Order a Coke and they'll ask you what kind. A Sprite? Dr. Pepper? Ginger Ale? Pepsi? To them, they're all Cokes. For whatever reason, in the U.S., Cologne became slang for "perfume for men" even though the word actually refers to one specific weaker variation of perfume. I suppose part of it may have something to do with dudes being insecure, not wanting to admit they wear perfume. It's silly.

    In general, Eau de Cologne basically means it is a lower strength fragrance, meaning that around 90% of what's actually in the bottle is just alcohol. Eau de Toilette is stronger, and Eau de Parfum is the strongest. Terre D'Hermes is an example of perfume that come in both Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum strengths.

    If you look at the bottle or the box of whatever you own, you'll probably find the words "Eau de Toilette" on there somewhere, meaning it's an EdT. Or maybe even Eau de Parfum. Creeds and Bonds are generally EdP.

    The ultimate example of a modern cologne is Mugler Cologne. I believe that Gianfranco Ferre Bergamotto Marino is also an EdC.

    I agree! I enjoy those very much as well. I'm also a fan of the bottles for D&G The One and Terre D'Hermes. Such handsome yet simple bottles. That being said, I'm a sucker for a very heavy cap.

    I always thought the bottles for DK MEN were pretty damn awesome.

    I agree. I prefer something like this, simple, but with substance and Gucci certainly do the substance thing!

    Bleu de Chanel...genious marketing. Simple blue square bottle with a magnetic top that aligns perfectly. Flat out manly.

    Another cool one is Swiss Army Classic by Victorinox in the limited edition 100ml bottle that looks like a Swiss Army Knife. Sorry I have no pic.

    The Allure Homme line has a similar simple clean design.

    Theses are examples, along with Lutens, where Less is More, per the Bauhaus School of Design philosophy.

    My vote as well. Owned a vintage bottle back in the 90s. Bought it just for the bottle. The fact that it was really good was a bonus.

    Simple utilitarian such as Burberry London, Gucci PH I and II, Gucci Envy for men, Dirty English - ornamented a bit, nice touch. Carolina Herrera Chic for men etc.

    Guerlain bottles, both the Bee and the newer Desert series are grt.

    So are many mentioned already.

    Top 5 for me will be Amouage, Guerlain, Tauer, Mona di Orio and Idole de Lubin bottles...

    The worst, if I may add, are Comme des Garçons edp and 2 Man, both of which can't bloody stand...

    Invasion Barbare, aptly capped with an invader. Great scent, btw.

    Something minimalistic, modern yet unassumingly elegant would be my preference: most likely, similar to the bottles of YSL M7 and Rive Gauche, most male fragrances by Jil Sander, especially the ones in rectangular bottles, Santos de Cartier, Jeans by Roccobarocco etc.

    You're RIGHT! I forgot about that. I was mostly just talking about EdC vs EdT and EdP, but Pure Parfum Extract is indeed perfume as well. Cheers!
