I'm sure there are tonnes of women out there, like me, who love perfume bottles. Not necessarily perfume, just the bottles. I love it when they're a gorgeous, sexy shape. I love it when they're girly and pretty and look like little pieces of sculpture. And obviously they look much better when the liquid is still inside them. Which is why I can't bear to use them most of the time. I leave them sit on my bedroom shelf and look at them and sigh and notice how gorgeously damn gorgeous they are (sorry I've run out of words...)
There are some that are extremely beautiful and smell like muck, in my opinion of course. Like Agent Provocatuer, looks like a beautiful pink, sexy grenade but smells like yeuch. The stuff gives me headaches.
My favourites are the Jean Paul Gaultier bottles, for men or women. Sexy curves and a practical tin.
What often eventually happens is that I decide that life is too short and I must crack open one of them and use them and what happens? They're gone off and smell putrid! AWWW what a waste....how long does perfume last?
My current preference are for those Donna Karen Apple shaped ones, they smell so beautiful but the bottle is an awkward shape for the handbag!!
