My initial intention was go to green packaging and how/what they use for those products, but instead i went in the opposite direction. Perfume bottles by Salvador Dali sounded alittle more interesting then green packaging.

Dali's inspiration for fragrances started because of his wife's obsession for perfume & perfume bottles which she had hundreds of. Dali Quote " Of the five senses, the sense of smell is incontestably the one that best conveys a sense of immortality". His other inspirations came from his art work or paintings which depicted the nose and lips of Aphrodite the goddess of love & beauty. Dali won several packaging awards for his designs.

The more Luxurious Bottles of perfume if you prefer the posh side of life, that's if you can afford it. Here is a perfume from Sisely, a limited edition bottle which sells at Harrods for the bargain price of 162pounds, the head of the bottle is sculpted in 18 carrot Matt gold stopper.

Dali has created around 300 singular perfume designs since the 30's these stunning looking bottles show the beauty an essence of women, well most women, the packaging is just as pretty as the bottles and hopefully these timeless designs will never change. These original designs were created with the help and friendship from other perfume designers such as Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Helena Rubuinstein.
