Perfume Bottles

Perfume bottles come in as many shapes and sizes as they do fragrances. Many people purchase a bottle of perfume not only for its scent but for the artistic qualities of the bottle itself. Bottles of perfume differ greatly in style and design but the most popular varieties come in spray or mist bottles. However, there are a variety of application techniques including sprays, roll-ons and applicators.

How They Work

A perfume bottle is usually made of glass to keep the fragrance pure, but some are made from hard plastic. These bottles are topped with a screw on top made of aluminium or plastic. The top is really a spray nozzle connected to a tube that dips down into the perfume. When the top is pressed down, the liquid perfume is drawn up through the tube and out of the nozzle. The nozzle disperses the perfume into a mist or spray where it can cover a greater area on your body.

Different Types

Some types of perfumes work differently than sprays or mists. Roll on perfumes come in glass bottles with a plastic ball at the mouth of the bottle. As the ball glides along the skin it picks up the perfume inside the bottle and dispenses it onto the skin's surface. Some perfume bottles have a screw on cap with a tab or plastic applicator that dips down into the perfume. The cap is unscrewed and the applicator is lifted out and dabbed onto the skin wherever desired.
