1950s Rose Valois “Collection Chapeaux Miniatures et Parfums”

Even the most sophisticated of today’s scent packaging pales in comparison to perfume creations of the past.  From precious Lalique bottles to Czech glassware to ornate works from centuries ago, the art of scent is a collector’s dream.

Among the lots in an upcoming perfume bottles auction are whimsical items, including dresser top bibelots, along with exquisitely crafted crystal containers.
