We'd be lying if we didn't say that sometimes, on the not-so-rare occasion, we purchase fragrances purely based on the bottle. Cute or unique packaging definitely has a power over us. There's nothing quite like adding a new, striking bottle design to our dressing table. It's almost like finding that new perfect dress that you can't wait to put on show.
Below are a few fragrance bottles that we couldn't resist shouting about. Sweet, striking and a little bit on the unusual side, you need to feast your eyes on these delectable bottles!
We've raved about Marc Jacobs Honey since the day it came into stock. Like the name suggests, this bottle design is all about making that sweet, Honey. The first thing that that catches our eye are the little honey bees which adorn the bottle. These have striped wings with tiny pearl detail bodies which instantly add a major cute factor to the design. The glass bottle is also covered in a polka dot design which makes it essentially girly and a must have for our dressing table.
The Valentino Valentina Eau de Parfum is an effortlessly girly perfume that comes with an elegant and sophisticated bottle design. As soon as you see it, you know this is one fragrance that you'll be eager to add to your collection. The bottle features a delicate rose detail which was exclusively designed by Rudolph Valentino and serves as the emblem of the brand. Simple yet pretty, the Valentino Valentina bottle is an art in itself.
Katy Perry's Killer Queen is the newest fragrance from her perfume collection and features a very distinct and very unique bottle. Designed in the likeness of a Queen's Scepter, the Killer Queen bottle emphasizes royalty and wealth. Royal red and gold shades run throughout the bottle design which makes you feel as though you've gotten hold of a little touch of luxury.
Cheeky Alice is a mischievous scent from the Vivienne Westwood collection which comes with an adorable fragrance bottle. Designed to look like a magic potion, Cheeky Alice is decorated with a red bracelet that fastens shut with two hearts, both emblazed with the iconic Vivienne Westwood emblem. This cute attachment can be taken from the bottle and worn as an everyday accessory which adds a fun element to the overall bottle design of Cheeky Alice. Irresistible and charming, it would be wrong not to add Cheeky Alice to your dressing table.
We wouldn't expect anything less than a dazzling and unique bottle from a Lady Gaga fragrance and Fame does exactly that. The gold and black bottle is simple yet striking and reminds us of an egg shape design, almost as though it's going to crack open something exciting. Lady Gaga Fame definitely makes a statement with its stylish bottle which is an accessory in itself.
