    That's a tough call -

    favorite - Original Rouge 540 by Baccarat in Crystal
    most meaningful - No. 1 Pure Parfum Concentrated Limited by Clive Christian in Crystal
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Definitely, definitely KOUROS. Because I've been in love with the Golden Age in Greece (500-300BC) ever since I became a man.

    Difficult to chose one. I will make it three.

    Roadster has a good style and fits the title/theme of the cologne. But the Guerlain, that is some serious art, it will be tough to top that one....

    Adg profumo.. the frosted glass, the magnetic cap, the engraved steel bottom.... Kind of a basic choice but I always thought it was a nicely crafted bottle

    I miss the older bottle designs from the 70's or so. Much more creative but probably not cost effective.

    I had YSL Sleek Suede which was this gorgeous shiny thing with huge magnetic cap but moved it on. Of the current line-up it has to be this, thick glass and another chunky magnetic cap:

    Agree, but slap that silver/metal base on that bad boy. With the original almost porcelain type glass, it would scratch and scar a bit and form a type of "patina". What a beauty. Glad I have the old, old bottle in reserve.

    Something about the black and gold, the metal, magnetic cap, etc. I love this bottle.

    Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense for the sprayers.

    Bleu de Chanel edt for the snap-in-place magnetic cap and the partially light-blocking bottle.

    Both of these designs for their simplicity.

    Gaudy designs can be embarrassing, especially when the juice inside needs to be propped up by cachet, which is how I typically think of so-called luxury brands, based on sampling (and seeing the bottles).
