Collectible Miniature Perfume Bottles by Anne Breton
Book DescriptionMarylin Monroe, when asked what she slept in, famously replied that her night attire was nothing but a splash of Chanel No.5. Perfumes have been used by both men and women for thousands of years to entice potential partners, and the design of perfume bottles often echoes the allure of the scent contained within. From the late nineteenth century, miniature flacons have been produced for the launch of new fragrances. These flacons have been collected since the 1950s, and have seen an explosion in popularity over the past two decades. From nestled in padded red velvet, to the latest minimalist creations of top designers today, perfume bottles are a true reflection of the age-old rules of seduction as played out between the sexes. Since as far back as the early 1900s, Collectible Miniature Perfume Bottles illustrates these perfect collectors' items in over 500 color photographs, from the extraordinary lamppost-shaped creation of the Maison Corday at the beginning of the century to souvenir bottles featuring Hollywood film stars such as James Dean and Audrey Hepburn. Anne Breton's accompanying text is clear and informative, including the history of the perfume miniature and details on where to find out more on this fascinating subject. Compact yet authoritative, Collectible Miniature Perfume Bottles is a gift that will give hours of pleasure to all collectors and perfume fanatics.
