Sex and Perfume Bottles

Yesterday was one of those daysWoke at 4 a.m. with horrible pains in the stomach and back.  Huh, what gymnastics did I do in bed to cause this?  Well, none, duh, I was sleeping alone.  Just that 24-36 hour flu that had me prone and moaning all day yesterday with stomach cramps, headache, aches everywhere.  The only thing that made me happy was when I could eat last night and went in for the Healing Food – Oreos. Don’t even judge.

My other happiness – Christian Dior Grand Bal.  No review yet, but this thing is so freaking pretty and lovely to wear, it almost makes me cry.  And it was a tremendous comfort in my sickitude yesterday. But it’s not helping so much today with this horrible neck cramp I have from sleeping badly yesterday.

Something fun for today – The Frisky published their Ten perfume Bottles that look like Sex Toys.  Perfume bottles have been phallic forever (Guerlain’s lobed stopper top???), and the tops that look like flowers?  Um, right, yeah, flowers.  The Frisky is absolutely right on Cartier Pasha and J’Adore – Cartier loves to make smutty perfume bottles.   There are some others that qualify, and these are some off the top of my still-aching head that I’ll nominate for our own Sex and Perfume Bottles Award Category.  Which is our new contest since the Fifi Award Winners this year was such a disappointment. Well, it is every year,

Cartier Roadster

Paloma Picasso.







Guerlain Jicky’s lobed stopper.

I don’t know if you can post pictures in comments, but put in a link if you can to your nominee for Most Overtly Sexual Perfume Bottle, and I’ll post the collection of them sometime in the next week so we can vote on which one is really the most sexual perfume bottle ever made.  Winner will get something!  I’ll figure it out when we get there.

    (Oh, and Après l’amour looks like this:

    ? (I think my first comment has vanished! Let me know if I need to repost…)

  • Homura-chan says:

    I think the Macho bottle is hilarious, but here are a few more (not sure if I linked right):

    Donna Karan signature looks sexual in the ad:

    *But the mini is too much.*

    Then there are the LE Guerlain blue baccarats. I like this Shalimar one, it has a fuzzy tassel.

    Last one is Womanity. Something wrong with this bottle.

    Um…well, as it happens sometimes in one of those universal congruences, I just posted this week’s Olfactarama about the infamous Pierre Cardin bottle from 1972 and the (mostly unwanted) cascade of memories it elicited. Honestly, I never plug, but this is just too weird.

  • FragrantWitch says:

    I wouldn’t say these are the most overtly sexual even though they are intended to look like genitalia:
    I found this ages ago and now is the perfect time to share!

  • Sam says:

    Wow–everyone’s suggestions are hilarious! I never knew such bottles existed. Clearly, an entire aspect of my Perfume Education was lacking. 😉

  • Amy says:

    I think of this one – Shiseido Feminite Du Bois ……

  • Eldarwen 22 says:

    I don’t know why but I think that Kenzo Flower is suggestive.

  • fleurdelys says:

    The original Pierre Cardin bottles, definitely:

    And then there’s Diesel’s Only the Brave:

    • OhLily says:

      The Cardin for men was the first one that I thought of as well. Had a boyfriend who wore that back in the day, and that is one big fragrance. I still have fond memories of it, though! 😉

    • Patty White says:

      Those Pierre Cardin bottles, how could I have forgotten! And they were everywhere! Big ole dildoes all over Walgreens and K-mart, and nobody said a word.

  • Rena says:

    1955 bottle of Revlon Intimate. I own it but will try and find a link later

    • Patty says:

      Holy crap, it is!! did you see the Love’s Frenzy by the same company? Brown bottle. You know, more realistic!

    • Sam says:

      Oh, yes, I recall this one from my early teen years; I guess I was too young/innocent to understand what that bottle was all about. Wow!

      • OhLily says:

        Love’s Baby Soft and Lemon Fresh(same bottle, just yellow) were all over junior high, and boy did I love that Lemon – even if did only last for about 20 minutes. lol!

  • Terry says:

    I nominate Fullchoke by Francesco Smalto…

  • Joaquim says:

    Maybe…Juliette has a Gun’s bullet…
