Perfume Bottles

I will never forget images I saw in Victoria Magazine years ago.
There was a story about Jessica McClintock and her fabulous home. 
She had a charming and gorgeous perfume bottle collection.
I was smitten and inspired to start collecting my own bottles.




There is just something so lovely and romantic about perfume bottles. 




The Opalescent hobnail glass is Fenton.  It came from e-Bay after the one from my childhood fell off of a shelf during a jam session with my son and his friends. This one is actually prettier than the one I had as a child. 
I had my friend (who later became my sister, Karin) convinced that my original bottle had a genie who lived inside and would grant me wishes. ;)



I won the Lalique L'Air du Temps bottle on e-Bay.
I shopped and shopped until I found one in my price point.


The double doves Lalique bottle came from an antique shop.




The bottle with the Pied Piper and angel is Czech and came from Bill's Granny Vi. 
Isn't it gorgeous? 




I keep the clear ones in the window in my bathroom but I have some others too. I'll show those in a later post.






 What do you think? Do you collect perfume bottles?

  1. I remember that spread about McClintock's home. I have a few old perfume bottles that belonged to my hubby's grandmother. Now I wish I had a collection like yours- xo Diana
