The Art of Fragrance Bottles Appreciation

The Art of Fragrance Bottles Appreciation

Although the popularity of perfume is increasing year by year in various countries, collecting perfumes has always remained a niche category. At present, there is no evidence to prove that collecting perfumes has appreciation space. However, this also reflects the difference of perfume collecting from another side- the collectors' enthusiasm for collecting is mainly due to the love of perfume itself, not investment. The word perfume comes from Latin, meaning "through smoke". It is a liquid mixed with fragrant essential oils, fixatives, and alcohol or ethyl acetate, used to give objects (usually human body parts) a lasting and pleasant smell.

In ancient times, humans used spices to change body odor. At first, people obtained the fragrance by burning plant roots and stems. In the 10th century, a doctor named Yibun Xina invented the steam distillation method to extract aromatic oils from flowers and made the earliest rose water, which may be the prototype of modern perfume and also the earliest perfume in the world. The Romans especially loved the scent of roses, and rose water was widely appreciated. Another perfume called "Hungarian water" was introduced in the 14th century, which was the earliest attempt to extract aromatic substances with ethanol. The oldest perfume in England is lavender water used to perfume and repel insects, which appeared around the 17th century.

During the 18th century, eau de Cologne entered the market, initially used as medicine. It became popular and by the 19th century, it had become world-famous perfume. The modern form of perfume only began to enter the market after the establishment of the Lilac Company in the south of France in the latter half of the 19th century. Perfume was an expensive luxury at the time, only used by upper-class women for socializing, and perfume companies were well supported and protected by the court.

Age of perfume bottles

Generally speaking, the earlier the production of perfume bottles, the more collections and appreciative value they have, which is the same as all collections. For example, the Lalique style glass perfume bottle (1st century BC) was quite luxurious at the time, and just like the liquid inside them, we can experience the true lingering aroma from them.

Place of production of perfume bottles

Different perfume bottles from different places record different customs, appreciating perfume bottles from different places, one can feel the breath of different cultures. The world's oldest perfume discovered in Cyprus was packed in an inconspicuous pottery bottle; the Butterfly Lady series perfume bottles, which blend exoticism, faintly reveal the mysterious atmosphere of ancient Eastern countries.

Material of perfume bottles

Glass and crystal are the main materials used to make modern perfume bottles. In addition, ceramics, enamel, and other materials are also often used to make custom fragrance bottles. When collecting, one can focus on collecting perfume bottles made of certain materials according to their own preferences.

Shape of perfume bottles

The shape of perfume bottles created by cosmetic plastic bottles manufacturers is quite diverse. In addition to shapes that can be described, such as square, round, heart-shaped, crescent-shaped, cone-shaped, inverted trapezoidal, etc., there are many shapes that cannot be described in words.

Color of perfume bottles

The color of perfume bottles is exceptionally rich. Generally, transparent perfume bottles such as glass and crystal are mostly light-colored, such as light lemon yellow, light orange yellow, light green, light blue, etc., especially light lemon yellow. Because lemon yellow matches the color of most perfumes, it gives a refreshing and clean feeling.

Decorations of perfume bottles

The carved surface, beautiful flower bottle cap, and other decorations make the visual art of perfume bottles equal in value to the olfactory art of perfume.
