Fragrance bottles we adore

There are so many scents on the shelves, each one conjuring up a memory or two. There is also nothing better than buying or receiving a beautiful scent that is packaged in a beautiful container that can sit prettily on your dressing table. Whether it’s a leopard’s face or a simple crystal, we rounded up some of our favourite fragrance bottles that we think are really special.

  1. I do believe a beautiful bottle and well marketed packaging aids a lot in the selling proses of fragrances, especially if the designs are vintage inspired… from the late 1800’s :-)

  2. I attended the launch of La Panthere de Cartier fragrance at Sandton City last year. The dynamics of why and how the bottle has the shape of a Panther was very interesting! The cat look, the Perfumer, the package, the bottle, well what else can I say, the fragrance smells absolutely divine!

  3. Jean Paul Gaultier bottles are very cute but one of my all-time faves is J-Lo – Glow. The bottle with the little diamante necklace is so suave and classic

  4. I always feel too sad to throw my bottles away after the perfume is finished! They’re like little works of art!!

  5. Wow, the most attractive bottles,and the steep prices that go with them. I still rather stay with my brand and that is Estee Lauder White Linen. Lingers the whole day.

  6. Just bought Thierry Mugler’s Angel, I’m so in love with my smell right now, I have such a HUGE EGO cos I have smell to back it up
