Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles 2012, part 24

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US.

Victoria's Secret Bombshell Fantasy perfume bottle

From Victoria's Secret, a one-of-a-kind collector's bottle in the Bombshell fragrance, featuring "amethysts, sapphires, rubies, tsavorites, white, pink, and yellow diamonds, a 10 ct. white diamond, and a hand-carved tourmaline butterfly." $500,000, assuming nobody has bought it yet. Or for an even $2,500,000, get the gift set with matching jewel-encrusted bra. (via jckonline)


Bombshell Diamonds edition

An easier-on-the-budget alternative from Victoria's Secret, the Bombshell Diamonds edition (which may or may not be a variation on the original scent): "Give in to glamour. Be forever flawless in Bombshell Diamonds, a fresh, captivating blend of frosted vanilla, passion fruit and brilliant lychee blossom from our limited-edition Victoria’s Secret Bombshell Holiday Collection. Inspired by the unparalleled beauty of pure diamonds, this eau de parfum is packaged in a bejeweled collector’s bottle. Spray on for dazzling scent that lingers." $55 for 50 ml.


Aftelier antique watch case

From Aftelier, one of many new one-of-a-kind watch cases to be filled with the (natural) solid perfume of your choice. This one is the "Small Sterling Niello-Enameled Watch Case": "Fanciful design with enameled edging around the watch and marked "sterling silver". Due to being over a hundred years old, the enamel is uneven. This case is 1" across, holds 1/15 ounce (2 ml) of solid perfume of your choice." $225-285 depending on which scent you choose.

New York Yankees for Him silver edition

From the New York Yankees, a silver-plated collector edition of New York Yankees for Him: "The exquisite silver-plated limited edition New York Yankees Eau de Toilette is presented in a grass anchored acrylic display box. Beyond the package itself, this collectors' edition bottling contains the prestige Yankees fragrance that captures the winning style and attitude of the legendary franchise. This limited edition is an exceptional and unforgettable gift for the discerning Yankee fan." 200 ml, $125 at Macy's.

    I read somewhere that one one has ever bought one of those VS fantasy bras – I would imagine it’s worth more in the publicity and the normal sales it generates off the back of it and the annual show. Makes you wonder what happens to the actual bras though – if they get locked up for archive purposes or disassembled and sold back to the jeweler – usually they mention the jeweler’s name when unveiling it, although I can’t remember any except one year it was Mouawad.

    Mandy Aftel has some lovely fragrances and wonderful presentation ideas – I loved her cut glass perfume pendants. It’s not easy to give perfume as a gift but this is a great way to try it..

    I love the idea of the watch case!

    During college, I used to work at VS as a salesgirl, way back in the late 90’s/early 00’s when the whole Fantasy Bra thing had just started. Apparently, someone actually did purchase the bra one year…I think it was maybe in 2000, and it was all the buzz around the company because some anonymous Middle-Eastern billionaire bought it. Whether anyone has ever purchased one since, I have no idea. I also have to wonder, like Pigoletto, if the gems are just taken out and given back to the jeweler…the only thing that seems logical, really. As for the fragrance bottle, I can’t imagine anyone with enough money to purchase it wanting to wear a VS fragrance, lol.

    Would it be possible to just buy the discerning Yankee fan a ticket to a game for $125.00?
    (I could make a snarky comment upon the sillage lasting for six months but collapsing suddenly in October, but I am a Mets fan, and in position to do so. )

    That VS bottle is hideous, so I’ll spend my nonexistent thousands elsewhere, thanks.

    The $500,000 bottle looks like a deformed pineapple to me.
