Admission Criteria for Perfume Bottle Collection

Admission Criteria for Perfume Bottle Collection

The market for perfume bottle collections is very small, and many early varieties are very affordable, especially the perfume bottles from the early 19th to 20th century that are still unknown and unrecognized, resulting in foreign collectors coming to China to search for them and earning huge price differences. This situation is truly regrettable. However, from another perspective, it also indicates that there is great investment potential in glass perfume bottles in China. This undoubtedly provides an opportunity for collectors and investors to enter at low cost, and the investment potential it brings can be imagined.

Perfume bottles, created by fragrance bottle manufacturers, are often highly appreciated and have high aesthetic value due to their unique designs. However, there are certain entry standards for selecting valuable collection targets from many perfume bottles. The following characteristics can be used as reference for collectors to choose their perfume bottles:

Production Year

This is the main criterion for judging the value of perfume bottles. Generally speaking, the earlier the production date of the perfume bottle, the higher its collection and appreciation value. This can be felt from the "timeless scent" on the stamp of glass perfume bottle production date.


Perfume bottles come in various shapes, with endless new ones emerging, in addition to traditional square, round, heart-shaped, crescent-shaped, conical, and inverted trapezoidal ones.

Place of Production

Perfume bottles from different production areas record different customs and can be appreciated for cultural differences. French perfume bottles have been highly praised worldwide for nearly a century and have become a leader in trendsetting.


The colors of perfume bottles are also colorful, and transparent glass crystal perfume bottles are generally light in color, such as light lemon yellow, light orange yellow, light green, light blue, etc. Especially light lemon yellow, which matches the color of most perfumes and gives a fresh and clear feeling, has great visual appeal.


At present, the main materials of perfume bottles we see are glass and crystal, which is a result of the times. However, before the 20th century, porcelain, enamel, and other materials were used to make perfume bottles.


As an important selling point, the packaging of perfume bottles such as aluminum packaging for cosmetics also attracts people's attention.  With appropriate packaging, glass perfume bottles can achieve artistic appreciation value by presenting green leaves and red flowers and improve the taste of fragrances.
