Bottled Up

Is Perfume A More Attractive Purchase If You Love The Bottle?

Whenever I am in shops that sell perfume I am almost always drawn to the perfume bottles...especially when they are elaborate and fancy! Take Marc Jacobs Daisy or Lola perfume …the bottles are adorned with large ornamental flowers ….sure to catch my eye! Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. line of fragrances Harajuku Lovers… the bottles are super stylish dolls! So…my question is ….are you more likely to buy the perfume if you love the bottle ?
Chances are if you are unsure about the perfume a fabulous bottle will likely give you the incentive to splurge, but what if the bottle is not so hot? Don’t judge a book by its cover is a relevant part of reality when shopping for perfume! If the fragrance is fab but the bottle is drab would you really still buy the fragrance? I decided to see for myself what girls had to say about the topic so….I did a little poll (special thanks to all of my lovely readers who participated) and a booming 75% of girls said yes, they would be inclined to buy the perfume if the bottle was amazing even if the price was high, 13% of girls said no, 7% of girls said for them it depended on how high the price of the perfume was and 4% of girls said they did not buy perfume.

Me? I am undeniably attracted to the bottle. In fact the inspiration for this article was my Daisy & Lola Marc Jacobs perfume, which in all honesty I love a great deal more for the bottle! Don’t know what your opinion is on the subject? The next time you walk into a shop that sells perfume see which bottle your eye is instantly drawn to, and chances are (if your like the other 75% of girls) the bottle will be just to die for!

  4. i think that it is better if the bottle looks nice...i buy more for the scent, but having a nice bottle will make me want it more!


  5. I like it when the bottles are nice... I really like Purr By Katy Perry! It is a cat, and it is super cute, and smells great! For me, if the bottle is plain, and/or a square or solid glass shape, I do not want to smell it because the bottle is so bland, so I won't but it!'

    Great Blog,
