There are so many wonderful bottles, from hand-painted glass bottles to decorative sculpted bottles, dazzling people. Not surprisingly, collecting perfume bottles has become a popular hobby. In each of the past ten years, through each unique perfume bottle, you can see the changes in bottle design. A century of development history of perfume bottle design, follow us to see.
In the first decade of the last century, the Art Nouveau style reached its peak, and most of the designs of perfume bottles appeared in whimsical, fancy, elegant and dignified forms, such as the 1905 L.T. Piver’s Floramye perfume. In this period, the material of perfume bottles generally used crystal. It is decorated with gold lettering and brass bottle caps. Cork stoppers are usually used as bottle stoppers to prevent the odor from spilling. When in use, use something like a probe to dip perfume into the wrist and neck.
The modern art movement began, abstract expressionism and surrealism became mainstream in their own way, and artists discovered that perfume clients are the most valuable in the world. The most prominent of these is Salvador Dali, who designs bottles for fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli and Marquay perfume company. For Marquay’s perfume named “Rock’N Roll”, Dali chose the combination of abstract black and punk red as the overall theme, boldly using contrasting colors to make a tape-like label. This design concept was definitely gone at the time. At the forefront of popularity. For Schiaparelli’s Le Roy Soleil perfume, Dali’s design concept is a golden sunset, depicting a face with birds. The artist’s design inspiration has actually inspired Schiaparelli for decades.
During this period, many companies adopted perfume bottles designed by artists. Other craftsmen are also working hard to innovate. The hat maker Rose Valois designed a set of perfume composed of many small bottles for Marotte, each with a different hat shape.
