Why do perfumers use these days such heavy bottles?

...I understand the problem and also your annoyance, Parfummaniac, and I am sure you are not the only one with this. It is bad enough when even with much less expensive fragrances, I refill an atomiser, or just try opening a tiny sample vial with these hard plastic caps, and then spill it on my fingers, hands and on my desk... besides losing most of the content, if a fragrance is not to my liking, the hands 'reeking' of it is another matter.Being off topic, I had to think about those glass jars for facial creams, and some have such unneccesarily heavy, thickened bottom, multiple times the weight of the actual 30ml or 50ml cream... rather unhandy, and only takes up space wherever you want to store them, it's not like it would need that weight so we won't have it 'flying around' in the drawer. Does anyone actually appreciate such containers as signs of 'high quality' and means to justify the high price, I wonder (as if every heavy glass was close to leaded crystal)?

Why do perfumers use these days such heavy bottles?

...I am not dealing with fragrances in that price range, so I might not be the one to comment, but I understand your pain, especially with leaking! If they aim for the feeling of 'quality' using heavy milk bottle-like glass and metal caps instead of slim bottles (and perhaps plastic cap), the leaking sounds more than embarassing in that effort... so, it's again more about keeping up appearances.I could imagine some people saying, they are meant as handy means of self-protection. Sounds as if they are rather meant to be displayed than actually used? I can only hope that the trend will take another direction...

The 'symphony' of a perfume

...Parfummaniac:I can imagine when you got completely hit by music it's really tough to concentrate on a fragrance and so is the other way around too. It also depends on the mood you're in, sometimes it's easier to get lost, no matter in what form of art. Yes , I consider perfume as a form of art, to smell from the outside but it can touch you deep on the inside, just like music.I saw an earlier article about fragrances matched with tea (intended to be worn while enjoying tea), and had to think whether there are fragrances to accompany tasting wines - it somewhat sounds counterproductive, but perhaps it's in the direction of "perfumes that go well with smoke/booze" etc. For music and fragrances, I really wish I could concentrate so much as to delve deeply in both at the same time. However, it doesn't have to be even music but some kind of noise, and I can't concentrate on the smell (or hardly on anything else) :(I also do appreciate fragrances as art, or I tend to be drawn to those that seem to be art (while using 'functional' fragrances for every day), since my love for perfumes started as such (Diorissimo), but then, I wonder if scents of flowers in the nature are 'art' as well, when they can't be reproduced, even when they do not evoke deep or complex feelings inside, but only an instant euphoria? I have a flower especially in mind and haven't found any fragrance containing its smell yet.

...:lol: It works!For me, Cabotine RoseCabotine RoseIt seems that there are still minor fixes needed, especially for the different concentrations.A propos concentrations, I also read that clicking on the grey field next to the perfume name stating the concentration of the current perfume, props a drop down list suggesting all the existing other concentrations of the same perfume :) It also in the test phase for now, so many perfumes only show one concentration, but some are already being implemented, "[email protected]" for instance.

...Frankie:Sorry for my inaccuracy, one small drop from JP: Patou pour Homme's miniature (too rare for me).Ah I understand now, I'm sorry I had misunderstood that there was a Patou pour Homme vintage miniature shaped like a tear drop :-) Thank you for your explanation, Frankie.By the way, I learnt that the new feature will show fragrance bottle icons together with the link to the perfume page, although still in the test phase - by typing "(the perfume name)@(brand name)", within the apostrophes :)

The 'symphony' of a perfume

...I find it an interesting connectíon, perhaps a little pointing to synaesthesia, even though I never had heard about the olfactory+auditory combination ;-) But why not, if there seem to be wine-lovers tasting while listening to music, or, simply enjoying meal outside in the beautiful nature with all its atmospherical scents and sounds (sorry if this comparison was too mundane.)I am too easily distracted by any kind of music, so I wouldn't be able to concentrate on the fragrance. The way you describe it, must be a stunning experience of further immersion, I also like the song you chose... And since in some languages, a scent is "listened to" rather than "smelt", it indeed seems accurate to call it a "symphony" of blended sensation :-)

...Y.Rocher: Fresh [email protected], sounds like a very tasteful choice of Men's fragrances, couldn't find the picture of the "teardrop" miniature though, or is it the one you attached? My eyes must be worse then...
