Happiness in a bottle

The art of creating perfume is something that has always fascinated me. That you can actually make so many different types of smells that all in different ways capture of feeling of beauty or happiness is incredible.

But of all the different scents that each fashion desinger, cosmetics brand or celebrity launch perhaps equally as enchanting is the packages they come in - the flacons.The perfume become so much more than just a scent when it comes in a beautiful flacon - it can completely light up your bathroom or dressing table and make you think that 'woaw I really can smell yourself pretty'. Like jewellery for all the senses.

Obviously the French have from the beginnging been really good at creating artistic and alluring bottle design.
However sometimes the actual scent inside isn't always as nice as the artwork outside. Even though I realise that preferences of perfumes is completely individual, which is what makes it so amazing, I personally for some reason always end up getting the scent that comes in the ultra simple and plain bottle. In some way it's really too bad. I look at my bathroom shelf I think, 'I need more glamour and excitement. But then I always get this idea that if the bottle is heavy on the art, there must be a strong and spicy smell to carry it off, which in the long run never really sticks with me. But here are some examples of classic flacons with a modern twist.
