Flacon Fantastic — Ten Heart Wrenchingly Gorgeous Fragrance Bottles

Flacon Fantastic — Ten Heart Wrenchingly Gorgeous Fragrance Bottles

Heart-wrenchingly gorgeous or head-scratching in their abstract design, the bottles of these scents will leave a lasting impression on one’s mind.

From top right and anti-clockwise.

Floraïku ao
Inspired by the Japanese word AO that means both green and blue, this fragrance houses the velvety green notes of figs, zestiness of mandarin, and incense notes of myrrh oil.

The intense oriental burst of fresh, zesty bergamot and spicy cardamom is tempered down by creamy sandalwood.

Gucci Mémoire d’Une odeur
Alessandro Michele’s penchant for the vintage translates into the house’s latest fragrance – aromatic chamomile, honeyed Indian Coral Jasmine Nature Print (a Gucci exclusive), and airy cedarwood.

Boss The Scent Absolute
If one cannot already tell by the dark and handsome bottle, the juice reflects a similar aesthetic – spicy ginger, the sensuality of mondia root, and smoky vetiver.

Serge Lutens La Couche du Diable
The leathery scent of labdanum (a resin) veils the skin before melting down into the balsamic sweetness of oud and fruity rose.

Ermenegildo Zegna Essenze Madras Cardamom
Echoing the sumptuousness of the brand’s leather goods, the fragrance notes this flacon include smooth vetiver, aromatic cardamom, and rich cedarwood.

Chantecaille Vetyver Cèdre
Zesty citrus, aromatic juniper oil, and spicy nutmeg immediately bring to mind the vibrant green grounds of a polo club.

Calvin Klein Eternity for Men
The 2.0 of the original Eternity for Men perfume retains its signature woody Fougère essence but is reintroduced with the sensuality of cypress and the elegance of suede notes.

Tom Ford Lost Cherry
The stickiness of black cherry and the creaminess of bitter almond dry down to a more masculine blend of roasted tonic beans, sandalwood, and vetiver.

Dunhill Moroccan amber
Spice trade routes inform the bouquet of this fragrance – spicy cardamom, earthy saffron, and warm precious amber.
