Students at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem worked with Maison Gerard in Paris to produce a series of glass and ceramic perfume bottles. We focus on those from the kiln, not the furnace.

The bottles create a visual representation of the scent they contain. Maybe we shouldn’t speculate too much about what your Saturday nights are like if you start by spritzing yourself with cologne from a jet-black bottle shaped like a spider, but you get the idea. Other designs are more austere, like artifacts from a more technologically advanced society. Others play with the feminine qualities of flowers or, as in the case of The Pandora, the more troubling aspects of sexual attraction. The bottles won’t make you smell any nicer, but perhaps they could reinforce your narrative-based confidence in whatever personality you’re projecting that evening. That’s the sexiest thing you could ask for.
