    This looks like a slightly modernised Greek sculpture. I like it, but probably wouldn't have it out on my dresser.

    That is a pretty hilarious bottle. You could always try to add some of your own hair to customise and style it.

    If you are referring to the recent "limited edition" bottle Musc Ravageur so bottled was my first FM purchase. Jazzes up their usual presentation and has a nicer feel in hand. I generally get the concept of FM packaging being boring but I appreciate the overall quality of packaging without excess. Hopefully the money is in the juice and if you bought a bottle you are enjoying it...
    When it comes to the ugliest bottle/presentation - I have never seen one as tacky as the OP posted unless one considers Tralala and the related back storey:

    At least the Schiaparelli bottle has some grounding in art-historical context. Given Elsa's connection to the Dadaist movement, I'm sure it's meant to be a reference to the famous Magritte painting "Ceci n'est pas une pipe".

    Awesome thread, funny stuff to look through hehe I’ll throw in the Bvlgari Man series the bottles aren’t horrible but for sprayer presentation wow. It’s starts as a sprayer then later becomes defective and becomes a squirt gun haha, how Bvlgari hasn’t realized this and revamped the design is laughable.

    Yeah, this was the one I was going to mention if no one else had posted it! XD I am just blown away by a number of other bottles shown here in this topic though! XD Honestly, I actually thought these Moschino ones were more hilariously bad than any thing else! XD But in all fairness, that describes a lot of the stuff posted here! XD

    Yes, Snuff gets a hall pass. The others should be run out of town.

    I just realized that I want to add: Salvador Dali fragrances! LMAO!! XD
    The bottles actually just creep me right out! The only way I would ever actually buy/wear one of those is if the actual perfume was the most phenomenally good thing ever! XD
    That said, I can see how they might appeal to die hard Salvador Dali fans!

    By the way, I just looked up "Jungle Jezebel" by Sarah Baker Perfumes on Fragrantica, and some people think it smells similar to "Poison" by Dior (The original Poison) or "Tabu" by Dana! I actually really like both of those perfumes, and also, based on the note listing, I suspect I might like "Jungle Jezebel" too!
    I was also just mentioning this in case you really liked the actual perfume, but just wanted a similar thing in a prettier bottle!

    Susan Lucci had a perfume in (I think) the 90s and the bottle looked like two slugs getting busy.
