I’ve blogged about aluminum bottles for perfumes a couple of times.
Scentsy Aluminum Bottle
We designed a beautiful bottle for one of our customers, the French parfumeur Molinard. It’s still one of my favorite aluminum bottles.
I just came across a new aluminum bottle for a room spray. Finally! I’ve been waiting for something like this for some time now.
The folks from Scentsy, are repackaging one of their room sprays in aluminum bottles instead of the usual glass and plastic bottles we normally see. Their aluminum bottles will have a spray pump, and a crimped aluminum top to minimize leaking.
I think it’s a good move by Scentsy. Aluminum bottles should help keep light, oxygen and other environmental factors from degrading the room spray essences too quickly, far better than plastic or glass.
Niche, a Canadian manufacturer of premium hair care products, makes a compelling case for the use of aluminum bottles.
Here’s their justification for the use of aluminum bottles, straight out of their website:
Niche Aluminum Bottle
” So, why aluminum? Aluminum can be recycled endlessly, whereas even recyclable plastic has a limit to how many times it can be recycled before it ends up in a landfill, ocean, park, or animal’s stomach.
Aluminum is valuable, and highly sought after by recyclers and therefore even if it is thrown on the street, it will not lay there for long before someone picks it up for the recycle value.
As a packaging material aluminum is excellent, since it does not rust like metal does, and is more sturdy than plastic.”
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
But what really got my attention – I was actually quite stunned – was Niche’s mention of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This is a floating garbage dump of plastic waste in the North Pacific Ocean that covers an area the size of the continental USA! Pretty disgusting – and one of the most compelling arguments to quit plastic and go aluminum.
I don’t immediately associate Afghanistan with perfumes or even aluminum bottles.
So I was intrigued to read about the launch of Kabul Aoud, a high-end perfume created by Montale Perfumes. It is made with essential oils from cedar, guaiacwood and aoud, which is a resinous wood that is quite rare and a target of poachers.
The aluminum bottle is a beautiful black. As we all know, aluminum is superior to glass in protecting against sunlight.
Searching on Amazon, I found some of Montale’s perfumes retailing at $210 for a 3.3 oz. bottle. That’s almost $64 an ounce!
If you read my previous post on how to store perfumes to make them last, then you should probably stick this aluminum bottle in the refrigerator.
The aluminum milk bottle has returned. Some older folks will remember when milk used to be delivered to your doorstep in heavy aluminum bottles. The plain aluminum bottle to the left weighs one pound!
Old Aluminum Milk Bottle
Niagara Cooperative Inc., has launched a chocolate milk in a beautifully-decorated aluminum bottle. As most aluminum bottle afficionados know, these bottles can chill fast and stay colder longer.
I like the product’s name – Crave. I like the bottle design even more. With the rich chocolate brown color, there’s no mistaking what’s inside this aluminum bottle. They also made the cap chocolate brown.
Supposedly, these bottles are “frost free”. But what is more interesting is that because of the company’s pasteurization process, this chocolate milk can actually be stored at room temperature!
I wonder where in the supermarket you can find this product then? Should I look in the refrigerated sections, where the usual milk and juice cartons are – or should I try looking in the bottled juices section?
Aluminum Bottle Chocolate Liqueur
This is probably one of the prettiest aluminum bottles I’ve come across.
Lovoka is a drink made with vodka and infused with chocolate and caramel. It’s bottled in South Africa. The Lovoka folks say that it is best served ice cold. You can put the bottle in the freezer and then drink it neat. Or if you prefer, you can mix it with your coffee or drizzle it over ice cream.
The Lovoka people packaged their product in a lovely 750ml aluminum bottle. Because it’s best enjoyed ice cold, using an aluminum bottle is absolutely ideal. The Lovoka people point out that their product is BPA free.
I’m not a huge liqueur fan but I personally like the Lovoka aluminum bottle design. It has a nice neck that one associates with fine wine glass bottles. Its 750 ml size is equal to the standard wine bottle. It just looks like a premium product.
I just don’t know if it is available in the USA.
Aluminum Bottle Carling
It looks like Molson is launching a multi-million rebranding exercise of its premium lager, Carling, using a new aluminum bottle design.
As I wrote in my previous post about the trend towards aluminum packaging among craft beer brewers, I believe it’s best to use a classic bottle shape to convey the image of an artisanal product. Unfortunately, most consumers still perceive beers packaged in cans as cheap products, notwithstanding the fact that many outstanding brewers use cans for their products.
To break from the mold, and to to succeed in rebranding, I really believe the classic bottle shape with neck is ideal and that the use of the aluminum bottle in particular can make a real statement.
The Carling bottle pictured here almost looks like one of the newer Johnnie Walker Black Label bottles.
Great move on the part of Molson.
If you like your beer cold, this is the perfect accessory for you.
Oenophiles have their wine refrigerators. Now beer aficionados can have perfectly chilled beer using this appliance called the Beer Froster.
According to beerfroster.com, a beer chilled in their device “is so cold that the moisture that condenses on it from the air will flash-freeze. It will literally fall out of the air as frost. When you open the beer to drink, a small amount of water may flash-freeze on the surface, extending the coldness. This should re-melt when drunk or decanted.”
But here’s the most important point, at least for me. Beerfroster.com says that “The coldest beer is going to be in an aluminum bottle. Due to its shape and composition, it will accept the lowest temperatures.”
Maybe that new La Benedicta aluminum beer bottle would be a perfect match for this beer froster 🙂
Montale Aluminum Perfume Bottle
The aluminum bottles for Montale perfumes contain ingredients that are 1.5 times the price of gold.
The perfumes are made of precious woods such as frankincense, balsam, cedar, and amber, which have been used for thousands of years. In particular, Montale uses a resin from the Aoud tree, said to be the favorite of Arabian royalty. It’s this essence that is almost twice the price of gold. For those of you aren’t following the gold market, it is currently selling at over $1,500 an ounce! So I guess aoud essence is selling at $2,250 per ounce 😮
Montale uses these materials in large concentrations for its perfumes, which makes them very long lasting, not to mention very expensive. The aluminum bottles were chosen and design to shield the precious contents from light and heat.
Now this aluminum bottle is what I call a collectible.
This is one of the coolest aluminum bottle decoration ideas in a very long time.
We don’t have it here in the USA, but Heineken has a new aluminum beer bottle that glows in the dark! It uses invisible ink that glows when exposed to UV light, revealing a shooting stars design. It actually debuted in Milan a few months ago.
It’s perfect for bars and social clubs.
Love the commercial too 🙂 Why don’t they have it here in the USA? It’s no doubt a collectible item.
