Life Made Lovely: Lovely Perfume


You didn't know perfume can be as lovely to look at as it is to smell?

Any fragrance worth its scent is also going to be packaged and contained beautifully. A vanity or dressing table can be even prettier when adorned with a few pretty bottles of fragrance.

The Coco Mademoiselle given to me by my son Justin last Christmas was packaged inside a dark purple satin drawstring bag that was nestled in a luxurious oval lavender-colored box that looked like something out of the 20s or 30s. The box still sits in one of my bathrooms, just looing pretty.

These photographers have made the most of the loveliness of perfume bottles:



Perfume AND the Eiffel Tower? Naturally, I can't resist.

Love this post...I almost want to spray some perfume on right now....(but I'm in my jammies,about to get dressed to hop on the treadmill--it'd be a waste!) True Fact: I save my empty Creed Perfume bottles a bit too long after they are empty, cause I love the bottle too...(.thanks for the validation on this!!)

Ohhh, I love "You've Got Mail"...that would probably make it on my top 10 list! Also LOVED "The Man in the Iron Mask."
There are a few here I haven't seen and will have to check out at some point.
