Collector's Edition: Mini Perfumes!

By Tina A. - February 26, 2013


If my last "Collector's Edition" post didn't manage to establish just how fanatic of a collector I can become (read: hoarder, albeit an OCD one if that makes any sense!), then I'm sure that this post will:
neatly displayed in front of my James Bond dvd collection (yet another collection that doesn't really fit the blog's description and I have many of those as well) lies yet another obsession of mine, my miniature perfume bottles!

Now, here's the interesting part: I don't collect mini sized bottles of perfumes I like, in fact I only like Dior J'Adore out of the bunch pictured, I just enjoy using those cute miniatures as a way to decorate an otherwise empty space. I mean, it'd be a sin to not appreciate those beautifully crafted bottles, right?

These minis aren't that easy to come by, and even though they're given away as magazine freebies here from time to time, it takes ages to see a new release - I'm not exaggerating, this collection took me over 10 years to build!

Do you collect mini sized perfume bottles too? Any ones I've missed out on? :)

  2. Τα λατρεύω!! Πραγματικά!! Παλιότερα είχα ξεκινήσει να συλλέγω αλλά δεν έβρισκα πολλά (ή μάλλον αυτά που θα ήθελα) και σταμάτησα.. Πολύ ωραία η συλλογή σου!
    Καλά το J'Adore φανταστικό και σαν άρωμα όντως..
    Πολύ ωραίο post :-)

  4. Neat post Tina! No I don't collect any bottles of perfume - I use perfume like water so I go through it pretty quickly and Dale just gets me all the large 100 mL sized ones of my favourites LOL But with that being said that is very impressive that you have kept and collected many small sized perfume bottles over the span of the past ten years!

    1. @Karen Law: Yes, I guess it would require a ton of space, if one were to hold on to the largest 100ml perfume bottles! Still though, a perfume collection is a nice idea and in my case, I've only have these mini ones to show - though I do secretly swoon over *those* full sized perfume collections we see on YT!

  5. i love mini perfumes and i collect them! i keep the mini sizes and even the original ones. I love the mini ones because i personally love perfume and use them everyday, and it's nice to have alot of different perfumes so the mini ones are easy to be carried around as well.

    1. @catherinegwen: I agree, I seem to prefer smaller, travel friendlier versions myself; I simply can't imagine carrying a 50 or a 100ml bottle just for freshening up or traveling, etc! The smaller versions are much more practical! Nice to see someone who I share the same hobby with! ;)
