Perfume containers / bottles are a thing of beauty

I don't know, I always feel happy to see the perfume containers. Most of them are colorful, shiny, transparent and have designed tops. It gives pleasure just to hold them in hands! There is some aesthetic connection to perfumes and fragrances. The bottle holds liquid perfume that is crystal clear, mild colored and smelling awesome. The container/ bottle attracts people who have an aesthetic sense. I like to preserve the empty perfume bottles which look attractive, just for pleasure.

Perfumes: Introduction

Modern perfumery started in 19Th century, with the synthesis of aroma compounds such as vanillin or coumarin, that allowed for the composition of smells which were previously unattainable from the natural aromatics alone.
