    Default Indie houses with the best bottles.

    I'm needing some nice bottles to round out my indie section. Since Slumberhouse no longer has their beautiful bottle w/ metal cap. Can you guys recommend me some other indie houses with nice unique bottles?

    I agree. It’s a shame Slumberhouse stopped using those bottles.

    The latest bottles from whitehot indie brand Areej Le Doré:

    And the lovely calligraphy bottles from La Via del Profumo:

    And perhaps the ones from Masque Milano:

    The Slumberhouse flask bottle is immediately what came to my mind when I read the thread title. I agree on Areej le Dore's 5th collection bottles too. Rogue's bottles are absolutely nothing special, though what's inside is. I do like the retro labels however.

    Tauer's iconic bottle must be mentioned:



    I don't know if Kemi Blending Magic is indie or not, but their bottles sure stand out:

    Not sure of their “indie” cred though..,

    I’ve always felt zoologist bottles are beautiful.

    The limited edition of this one is cooler.

    I forgot about Mendittorosa. They definitely stand out with their one of a kind, made by hand caps. Here are the three I own:

    True. But then there is this Limited Edition:

    Adds a sleeve with additional artwork that really complements the colour of the juice.

    I am also partial to the simplicity of bottles from Hiram Green. Simple, efficient, show the juice, good feel in the hand, and they survive falls with ease.

    I too love Zoologist bottles (the Squid special edition is so lovely!), as well as old Slumberhouse bottles and classic Tauer. I'm also partial to the wonderful Bulgari Black "hockey puck" and the first, hand-painted bottles of Vagabond Prince's Enchanted Forest:

    Are you buying the fragrances for the scent or the bottle?

    Speaking only for myself, I buy for the fragrance. If it happens to have a beautiful bottle, so much the better, but if it doesn't, I don't care.

    I like the way the Tauer bottles look, but the cap hardly stays on for me. Granted I only own one, so did I just get a bad one?

    I also liked ALD3 (w/ Indolis, etc.) and definitely those industrial Slumberhouse ones.

    I have avoided trying anything from this house as I can’t seem to get past that Easter Egg association lol.

    Inspiritu. Every scent in the line is distinctive, rich, long-lasting and great. Don't know why people are sleeping on this brand.

    In my experience, most work well, but some won't stay on tightly.

    I had the same issue but I kept going back and looking at the Crop releases. Bit the bullet on a Crop 2018, for the scent. If one is into bottles, the hand numbered base and unique hand painted bottle could make it a one of the best. Some nice bottles being posted in this thread but Hednic is being shy. He has posted some in other threads that take your breath away. Here is my House of Oud contribution.

    Not a big fan of the scents, but those bottles look really great in my opinion
