Beau­ti­ful bot­tles

YOURS (UK) - - Over To You -

■ I was sur­prised to read about women pre­fer­ring simple per­fume bot­tles and uni­sex fra­grances in the What’s All The Fuss About col­umn. To me, an at­trac­tive, un­usual bot­tle is part of the unique charm as­so­ci­ated with choos­ing and wear­ing a gor­geous scent. Who can for­get the mys­tery of Evening in Paris, with its mid­night blue bot­tle or the ‘crys­tal’ stop­per of the ex­quis­ite Lalique doves dec­o­rat­ing one of my favourites, L’Air Du Temps? Other stun­ning ex­am­ples in­clude the ruby glass of Red Door from El­iz­a­beth Ar­den. There are some many oth­ers too, with­out them how dull our dress­ing ta­bles would be. Do other read­ers agree?
