Yes, #productporn is a thing! Bold and eye-catching packaging is changing the way we look at and decide on a purchase. Bonus points if it serves a useful purpose. We list some of the coolest, quirkiest and prettiest beauty picks on our radar this month.
1. L’ENVOL DE CARTIER FOR MEN EDP 100ML, RM495
This is no ordinary perfume bottle. At one glance it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie – completely futuristic. If you look at it twice, it’s similar to a sleek lightbulb. The fragrance housed in the capsule within the glass dome can be removed and is refillable. The main highlight is its silver guilloche-patterned stopper, inherited from Cartier watchmaking.
“I didn’t know how to work this thing at first, but once I got past the beauty of its packaging, I was able to appreciate its sensual, musky scent containing notes of honey, guaiac wood, patchouli and iris. I love how beautifully the scent evolves on my man throughout the day.” – Joan, Senior Fashion Writer
