Decorative Perfume Bottles

Decorative perfume bottles are wonderfully nostalgic--they seemed like the greatest treasures in the world when you visited your grandmother when you were a kid. You'd gaze with rapt wonder at her dressing table, and touch her costume jewelry, makeup, and perfumes with reverence. It was a particularly thrilling visit because you got to play dress up and wear some of her seemingly unbearably glamorous clothes, do your hair, and dab some perfume on your wrists, or spray it in the air and walk through the spray.

Doesn't remembering that make you want to have some decorative perfume bottles of your own to look at every day, and to have there as your daughters and then someday your granddaughters come in to play in the room they think is the coolest place ever? Admittedly, if you wear a scent like Jean Paul Gaultier's Fragile, or Dior's Pure Poison, you probably want to leave it in its original bottle; but many scents come in a bottle you wouldn't miss, and you can definitely find a lovelier upgrade. From delicate hand-blown glass masterpieces to more substantial pieces, you can find decorative perfume bottles to enjoy and treasure.

Put Your Essential Oils in Decorative Perfume Bottles

Perfume bottles are especially great if you use essential oils. Typically oils are sold in very simple vials that look more like they contain medicine than perfume, so it's easy to transfer the oil to a beautiful bottle. In fact, because you can pour it, that's a lot easier than transferring a perfume that comes in a bottle that you have to transfer one pump at a time!

Furthermore, if you want to give a gift to a child who greatly admires your finer toiletries, you might consider getting a very cheap scent from the drugstore, and putting it in a decorative bottle that she will treasure. Chances are your eight year old niece doesn't really want to wear Beyond Paradise; she's more interested in having a beautiful opalescent bottle to put on her dresser. You can find decorative bottles in every color of the rainbow, with beautiful stoppers to cap them off.
