Apparently, Avon sold men’s fragrances in bottles shaped like busts of various “founding fathers” and Presidents in 1977.

Happy Presidents Day, fellow Americans.

Throwback Thursday: Vintage Perfume Bottles

sensorium bottles

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post about my visit to the “Sensorium” organized by Sephora and Firminich in 2011. Here’s another photograph from that event, showing four vintage perfume bottles: one from Guerlain (Coque d’Or, in the front), one from Hattie Carnegie (in the rear), and two from Elsa Schiaparelli (Zut on the left, Shocking on the right). These bottles matched their fragrances and their brands so well. I think many of us miss seeing that kind of attention to detail today!
