Perfume Bar

Isn't this little box from Victoria's Secret cute!   The box originally came full of sweet smelling perfume but it has been repurposed .....a Perfume Bar for the guest bath.   I wanted our guests to have fun trying on different perfumes or be able to just spray a little in the air and see what it smells like.
Victoria's Secret had these boxes half off at the after Christmas sales.....what a deal!  Gorgeous box full of perfume...$42.50!   My daughter loves the scents that came in the box, so she bought two.   She gave me the extra box...but kept the!  That's why there isn't a pic of the perfume that came in the box....

Evening in Paris ....perfect for my Paris themed powder room.
 I love the little one in the center that belonged to my mother....I remember how she would dip the stopper in the perfume bottle  and put the tiniest bit of the scent behind her ear.    I still apply perfume that have to get pretty close to me if you want to know how I smell...tehee!   

See the cologne second from the left....I didn't want any of the gentlemen visitors to feel left out....
My "special" perfumes are in the vintage perfume atomizers on the left ......that's where the good stuff is!

 I have a pretty rose dish on the counter to hold your rings while you wash your hands....
There is a selection of Bath and Body Works hand soap....

and a couple of dispensers for my "special" soaps.   My little grands know that this soap isn't for ...they also know I have to help them when they want to use the Perfume Bar.

I hope our guests will have fun at the Perfume Bar!


  1. What a lovely idea! A perfume bar! Coincidentally, I was just working with my bottles of new and old scents. I hope you don't mind if I try your idea?

  2. Penny I love your Perfume Bar! I am definitely a Perfume wearer, as a mater of fact I combine and layer up to four at a time!! It's all about the notes in the perfume, high notes, low notes...don't get me started!! LOL Great job Penny!

  3. And of course your signature roses and doilies - how perfect - great idea! Lovely as always.

  4. Everything is lovely. I am especially fond of the soap dispensers. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop . Big Hugs

  9. Penny I too love perfume bottles so seeing your post with the Perfume Bar was so wonderful. Your mother's perfume bottles are gorgeous! I asked my daughter-in-law not to long ago if I could have her empty Victoria Secret miniature cologne bottles and she gave them to me. Your bathroom is what my dream bathroom would look like. Take care, Darlene

  13. Like everyone else, I love pretty perfume bottles. Lots of different scents are great and so far, I don't think I have found one that I didn't like. What a fun thing to do..AND I love your collection of doilies..AND making use of a pretty box from Victoria's is a cute, cute, cute idea!! I have to go find a cute, cute, cute box and have a perfume bar just like Barbara's. (I'm teasing! teapot came a couple of days ago and my first teacup came. Two of your cups look similar, but the saucer says Comfort and I right?) I am on a QUEST I tell you! :) I just walk by and touch my teapot..and smile. It just plain wonderful
