History of Perfume Bottles
Progress in organic chemistry allowed for the invention of the perfume bottle during the 19th Century. Crystal perfume bottles were used and many featured floral designs. Many of these perfumes came with long wands that could be applied to the neck and wrist. As the sprayers became more popular, they introduced atomizers. Around the world, manufacturers began producing empty bottles that women could use to store their favorite fragrance.
After the end of World War II, perfumes were brought home by soldiers. As a result, sales increased and companies were forced to partner with designers to develop new packaging. Hollywood also had a major impact on the packaging, as its glamour and flash inspired eye-catching urban design.
Further, rock n’ roll bands and the modern art movement boosted the workmanship, which resulted in highly decorative toppers, like flowers, fruits, or hats.
