Perfume Bottle Collection




A couple years ago I decided I'd like to start collecting perfume bottles. I'm not really sure why, but I loved the idea of it. The thing I love about all of these is that they each have a special memory tied to them. Not only are they a gorgeous decoration for my vanity, but most of them are sweet gifts that have been given to me. That's something I adore.



This was the bottle that started it all. A few years ago I spent spring break with my best friend Anna and her mom and sister in Atlanta. One day while we were out shopping I came across this in Anthropologie and decided to take it home with me.



I think Anna is the biggest supporter of my collection. She surprised me with this bottle one day and I absolutely love it.



Last year for graduation Anna's sister, Alex, gave me this bottle. I love how unique it is from the rest of my collection; it's much taller, and the color is gorgeous.



This is one of my favorites out of the bunch. When I was little I would pick this up off my mom's vanity and pretend I was getting all dolled up to go somewhere magical. I was so happy when my mom let me have this one.



These three bottles were given to me by Anna as well! She spent this past Christmas in Italy with her family and brought these back to me as a souvenir/Christmas/New Year's gift. I love how different each of them are, but they are still a perfect fit.

I'll update you as the collection grows! Is there anything you have started collecting?
