12 holiday collector bottles

12 Holiday Collector Bottles. This month, fragrance houses ship holiday treats for true fragrance enthusiasts: limited edition bottles. These are usually the most ornate and creative flacons of the year and are offered in very limited numbers – usually because they are so expensive to produce. Think of them as “thank you” gestures for loyal clients. It’s also an opportunity for the bottle and packaging designers to really express their creativity. Here are 12 of the very best of the season.

Each season, Thierry reinvents his iconic star-shaped bottle for the holidays. I had the opportunity to showcase a dozen of these past bottles and they are true works of art. Of all the fragrance houses, Mugler has the most loyal bottle collectors. These sell out in a matter of days. For 2015, you’ll notice that the bottle is adorned with clear Swarovski crystal. It’s beautifully done.

More than 200 pink rhinestones adorn the bow on the holiday edition BonBon bottle. It actually looks like a piece of jewelry and would look impressive on a bedroom vanity.
