    Default Worst Bottle Design?

    To me perfume bottles can be a thing of beauty, some of the designs which the houses come up with are nothing short of amazing and can be described as a work of art, unfortunately this isn’t always the case....

    I guess the term “worst” is subjective and personal to each individual but I noticed this monstrosity when flicking through the selection at one of the discounters, now I’ve seen some horrendous bottle designs but simply.... what we’re they thinking?

    What’s the worst/most obscure bottle design you’ve noticed?
    My Most Complimented:

    1). Aventus - Creed
    2). Sauvage - Dior
    3). Allure Homme Sport - Chanel
    4). L'Homme - Prada
    5). Acqua Di Gio Profumo - Giorgio Armani
    Currently wearing: Aventus by Creed

    Awkward to handle:
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Ya I agree. That’s horrible. I saw her new bottles at Esxence they are a bit better. But don’t look the most polished in my opinion.

    I do not understand what compels designers to make such hideous bottles.
