What’s the most important thing you look for in a fragrance? A great smell, right? Well apparently, that’s not all we look for these days, as I discovered when I came across a forum thread by bh member ‘nickit’, who asked if she was the only one guilty of buying a fragrance more for its bottle than its juice.


Fortunately many of you concluded that though you are drawn to super pretty, show-stopping perfume packaging, you’ll only part with your beauty bucks if the juice is a winner too. Hooray – we wouldn’t want you stuck with an exxy scent that’s only purpose was to spruce up your dressing table, now would we?


The good news I come bearing? You can have the best of both worlds. I have single-handedly sought out the best looking bottles of perfume, that carry equally intoxicating scents, so that you, dear beauties, don’t have to make the choice between oh so pretty packaging, and captivating scents. 


No no, don’t thank me. You’re very welcome…


Check out some of the world’s most show-stopping scents, with credit going to both the bottle, and the juice.
