Perfume Bottles - Designs And Shapes Seduction

Why do elegant perfume bottles captivate and seduce us so much?
While many wonderful fragrances come in interesting and
beautiful fragrance bottles, you don't have to leave your
perfumes in the perfume bottles they came in. For some the
scents that the bottles contain are the real prize but the
bottles themselves seduce with their shapes and colors. There is
something elegant about a vanity or dresser that is lined with
perfume bottles. The perfume bottle appeals to our sense of
sight and touch.

There are Very close to twenty-one thousand different perfumes
being marketed at any one time, and that means there must be an
estimated twenty-one thousand different perfume bottle designs
aimed at attracting the consumer's eye. Perfume bottle making is
big business, and the leader in the perfume bottle making
industry dating back to the nineteenth century is a company
called Pochet SA of France.

Reuse Your Favorite Perfume Bottles

Fragrance bottles are essential for keeping the scent for a
longer period of time as the perfume can evaporate and needs
airtight containers so that the quantity does not reduce when
not in use. The best perfume bottles are those made from colored
glass or some other opaque material so that the perfume does not
get evaporated by sunlight. Lately, porcelain is widely used in
making perfume bottles and many shapes are given to it like
nuts, balls and eggshells.

Limited edition fragrance bottles are sometimes produced by
manufacturers. These bottles are so gorgeous that it is hard to
give them up when you have finished with the perfume inside.
Don't throw them away, carefully refill them and continue using
them. You can find many older novelty fragrance bottles from
companies such as Avon and fill them with your favorite perfume.
If you browse around an antique store, you might come across a
few gorgeous or old fashioned stopper perfume bottles. Wash them
out thoroughly and let them dry for a few days before you place
your new perfume in these golden oldies. When you purchase an
antique bottle or atomizer, always make sure that the stopper is
tight so that your perfume won't evaporate from the bottle.

Make New Perfume Bottles

If you desire and you enjoy adventure, consider taking a glass
blowing class and making your own perfume bottle from scratch.
Working under the supervision of master artists you can make
something that is indeed beautiful and unlike anything anyone
else will have or have seen.

By taking a trip to your local beauty supply shop or even a
glass manufacturer you can find several different looking
atomizers and bottles that can be used to store perfume. If you
buy a plain bottle, you can decorate it to your own taste by
using colored tissue paper to the bottle to create a stained
glass look. Try painting the bottle with stained glass paint or
even fabric paint for a textured look. You can also glue beads
or other decorations to a perfume bottle to make it truly
unique.

perfume bottles of every conceivable variety. The International
