Have you ever thought about how perfumes make you feel or the sense of space that they create in your mind?
Sometimes we are attracted by the smell but quite often, it is the bottle that attracts us.
As a designer, I have always been concerned about the relationship between the way each perfume makes me feel and the design of its bottle. Therefore, I’m trying to unveil the secrets in designing perfume bottles.
Yesterday I took part in the launch of two new perfumes by Majda Bekkali, both from Andalus collection. To know more about Majda and her new collection, please visit:
Majda is currently in Iran and this gave me the chance to talk with her about her perfume bottles and their design process.
She explained that the concept of the bottles came from the nature. She picked some stones and casted a few moules until she became satisfied with the design. It is interesting to know that all perfume bottles are hand crafted, the energy that is transmitted each time that the piece is touched by a craftsman, is what makes it even more unique. Another interesting fact about the bottle, is how ergonomic it is.
We also talked about on of her other perfumes named « mon nom est rouge », meaning my name is red. She explained that she has created the scent so that a blind person can feel the color, red.
