Perfume Bottle Made of Diamonds and Gold

One of the first things I notice about a perfume is its bottle design. Sometimes I am tempted to buy a perfume because it comes in an attractive bottle. Most of the perfume bottles are made of glass, molded to different shapes and sizes.

EXIRE Gold and Diamond Perfume BottleRecently, the IGC Group of Belgium and EXIRE® decided to take a step further, and launched the ‘Ultimate Small Brilliant’. The miniature perfume bottle is made with EXIRE® gold and set with 201 EXIRE® diamonds (which weighs 3.67tcw). This miniature perfume bottle is elegantly designed, and can hold up to 4 milliliters of perfume. It can easily fit into a woman’s hand due to its small size.

The gold and diamond perfume bottle was designed and crafted by Brilliant Services, a Belgian based high-end jewelry manufacturer that specializes in microscopic diamond settings and design.

I don’t know how much this perfume bottle costs, but I’m sure it’s going to have a hefty price tag.

Wake Up and Smell Your DNA

My DNA FragranceTired of smelling like designer perfume? It’s time to give up your DNA and create an unique fragrance that belongs personally to you. Literally.

A company by the name of My DNA Fragrance is offering an one time swab kit (for saliva) and lab fee of 99 USD to produce your scent using your DNA. Along with the initial investment, you will need to pay an additional fee for the actual perfume which comes in a clinically approved, 4-oz. aluminum bottle. Here is a list of sample fees (site fees may be different during promotions):

  • A one time swab kit and lab fee: 99 USD
  • Your own 4-oz. bottle for women: 89 USD
  • Your own 4-oz. bottle for men: 59 USD

As soon as you run out, you can reorder. My DNA Fragrance will produce the perfume again by using the DNA sample you submitted earlier.

This is a very unique idea. In fact, I’m sure the company will do well as long as people are willing to dish out money. My other thoughts are less optimistic – I almost wonder if this is some kind of conspiracy to collect people’s DNA? Not only that, but you have to pay for it! Of course, this is purely a matter of personal perspective. Nonetheless, it is still a rather intriguing service. What do you think?

NTT Communications Corporation LogoNTT Communications Corporation of Japan is starting a trial service that allows mobile phone users to “call up fragrance” to “relax or jump-start the day.” Twenty users are going to participate in the trial (which will occur between April 10th through the 20th). They have been asked to keep aroma pots with infrared sensors that can read mobile signals in their individual rooms.

In each pot, there are 16 different “aromatic essences” such as chamomile and peppermint. Participants will then select music and video clips on their cell phones through the carrier NTT DoCoMo Inc’s i-mode Internet service. The download will trigger a signal from the phone to the aroma pot, “which blends the essences and emits an appropriate scent … read more »
