smells like... perfume!
Today I discovered the smallest museum I've ever been in. It was hidden in the back of a beauty retailer and had the tiniest sign, so you really wouldn't notice it from the street. So, through the backdoor of the shop I got in one (and only that one) room, filled with millions of perfume bottles. It was as if I've slipped into a secret world. The bottles, which had every shape and color you can imagine, were chronologically sorted, but most of them didn't have a date or any other information.
|A holder made from metal and nacre, Great Britain around 19th century.|
|Okay, maybe you think wtf is this bear doing there but the plate says: |
1957 flask designed for the 1st anniversary of the company Christian Dior
Limited edition and signed by Christian Dior himself.
|No name, no date, but in the box is, or was scented nacre powder.|
|A collection of boxes which I believe, contained scented powder.|
|These didn't have a date either, just the name Famous Name Perfumes.|
They are tiny glass vials, which can be broken in the middle to release the perfume.
Ingenius, right? Okay, maybe a bit dangerous because of the glass splinters...
