European packaging supplier Gerresheimer has displayed its latest range of designs for the perfume and cosmetics industry at the Cosmopack event in Bologna.

Prestige fragrance segment

French luxury goods company S.T. Dupont selected Gerresheimer to create the glass flacon for the latest fragrance in its range.

The design for the Miss Dupont fragrance bottle is a transparent, tapered glass flacon which Gerresheimer claims is adorned with Guilloché-inspired lines to reflect the fragrance’s ultra-feminine, floral-oriental bouquet, as well as to demonstrate the diversity of the packaging company’s production line.

The flacon is crowned by a silver closure which continues the embossed lines of the bottle.

French fashion design

French fashion retailer Mexx chose Gerresheimer to create the bottles for its Magnetic fragrance range.

Designed in pink and blue, and round and rectangular, the bottles were made to appear as though they are magnetically attracted, which the designers say is to symbolise the attraction between a man and a woman.

The flacons have large matter plastic closures along with engravings on the bottle to give it a contemporary appeal.

Star appeal

Cosmopack will also be the first time that the bottle designer’s celebrity lines will be displayed to an international audience, with fragrances from models Paris Hilton and Naomi Campbell, and music star Shakira.

The S by Shakira bottle is an oval-shaped container has a luminous surface and a radial base.

The flacon specialist produced slimline bottles with brightly colored, fancy, anime-inspired images of Paris for Passport, for the hotel heiress’ new trio of fragrances.

Procter & Gamble fragrance Naomi has been designed in a tall slim bottle with feminine contours and detail.

The company says the show was the best place to display its range of designs for the perfume market, and announce itself on this international stage.
