It’s National Fragrance Day! To celebrate, I’ve compiled a list of favorite perfume bottles in my collection. I’ve previously done a list of perfumes I want just for the bottles, so I thought this would be a fun one to do, as well.
I’m not wearing any of these scents today, though. Test driving ’90s classic Tommy Girl (which comes in a perfectly serviceable bottle, but it’s certainly not one of my favorites).
ANNICK GOUTAL — Heure Exquise & Les Nuits d’Hadrien
Many of Annick Goutal’s fragrances come in this signature bottle and tagged with a ribbon and a card. The style is old-fashioned and very beautiful. The glass bottle’s ribbing is reminiscent of gathered tulle.
BADGLEY MISCHKA — Badgley Mischka (2006)
BALMAIN — Ambre Gris
I have to hide this from Peanut; he loves playing with the golden golf ball-shaped stopper.
BVLGARI — Black
A rubber-encased bottle to echo the rubber notes in this unisex fragrance.
CHANEL — Coco Noir
The classic Chanel bottle, but in glossy black.
CHOPARD — Wish
CLINIQUE — Beyond Rose
DIESEL — Loverdose
DUNHILL — Desire for a Woman
Like the men’s version, this perfume bottle has a flip-top cap so it is reminiscent of a hip flask.
GIVENCHY — Eaudemoiselle & Eaudemoiselle Absolu d’Oranger
GUERLAIN — L’Heure Bleue EDP & Mitsouko EDP
Another iconic bottle, Guerlain’s has an upside-down heart cap.
Never let it be said that an inexpensive perfume—and a celebuscent, no less—can’t have a gorgeous bottle. Bonus: smells amazing, too.
JENNIFER LOPEZ — Deseo
Another beautiful celebuscent bottle.
LOLITA LEMPICKA — Elle L’Aime
LOLITA LEMPICKA — Lolita Lempicka
MISSONI — Missoni (2006)
I can’t think of a sunnier, beachier-looking perfume bottle! The fashion house’s signature stripes are tied into the design, as well.
VAN CLEEF & ARPELS — Midnight in Paris
