Perfumes you should buy just for the bottle
There’s no denying physical attraction is real, but we’ve all come across something or someone where what’s on the surface is far more glorious than what lies beneath it.
For me, it’s Ferrero Rocher chocolates - the gorgeous gold foil draws me in every time (I’m attracted to shiny objects, a magpie if you will) but my nut allergy means I can’t appreciate anything beyond the wrapper. When you happen upon something that’s got both style and substance going for it, however, that’s where the magic happens.
Take Leonardo DiCaprio for example: handsome as hell (especially in his Romeo and Juliet days), but with a personality as sparkling as his eyes. Talk about giving with both hands...
The same goes for scents. Whilst we will admit that few fragrances are generally eyesores, there are still a couple of standouts that really lucked out in the looks department. And even though scent is usually all about pleasing one specific sense (no prizes for guessing this one: smell), some eaus are also extremely easy on the eyes.
Make room on your vanity ASAP, and don’t expect to see the space empty again anytime soon; these decanters deserve to stay on display long after the last drop has been drained – and trust us, every drop will be, because whilst you’ll come for the beautiful bottles, you’ll stay for the stunning scents.
Here’s our edit of perfumes you should buy for the bottle, from the bodaciously bold to the breathtakingly beautiful.
