    I'm curious if anyone here collects these glass containers?

    Not really. I have a bunch of them (empty ones) from all the splits. Trying to figure out what to do with them all...

    Maybe I sound crazy but I think it be nice to own one or two of them especially if the sprayers are not normally available, I enjoy the Creed glass bottles that I do own.

    I totally understand what you mean. The flacon without the sprayer does look quite neat when having a few of them in a collection.

    I'm tempted to get one. An empty flacon of Angelique Encens + vanilla scented candles would be heaven for me.

    I just realized the opening is too small for a candle. Damn.

    In regards to Millesime Imeprial flacons, has anyone had issues with the fragrance loosing the top notes? I ask this because flacons could possibly be a liability due to air exposure and leakage.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    LOL! I hear the water from the Virgin Islands is good as a Pina Colada drink.

    I collect them. Especially looking for the older ones. I have two (the ones to the left) that I guess is from late 80s or early 90s.

    Wow! Nice photograph!

    'HUILE PARFUMEE' flacon I've never seen this before. I wonder what the name of that fragrance is.

    I'm still curious if there were any fragrances from that time period that got discontinued that we don't know about.

    Nice picture but I have not heard this name before. I want once to use this. I like the perfume of honey blossom scented candles the most.

    Not owning any fragrances from this brand so far, but might consider keeping/collecting them even after being empty, especially the larger sized flacons

    At what price point does a bottle become a flacon?
    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    Never knew that a Huile Parfumee of any of their scents came in that size. Interesting.

    I don't currently have any, but have been looking for some of the larger ones if anyone has any that's not too terribly expensive.
