Hamburg designer Alexa Lixfeld has designed a range of perfume bottles with concrete tops.

Called Fragrance, the collection includes three different scents, each with a differently-coloured concrete lid.

Photographs are by Alexa Lixfeld and Karin Elmers.

Here's some text from Lixfeld:

FRA EDP 003

AN EXOTIC FRESH FOUGÈRE PERFUME WITH BERGAMOT AND ROSMARINE WHICH COLLIDES WITH STRONG WOODY ORIENTAL ACCORDS OF PATCHOULI AND PEPPER IN ITS HEART LEADS INTO A DRY DOWN OF SPICY AND SWEET NOTES OF VANILLA AND CINNAMON.

FRA EDP 002

A UNIQUE NATURAL FRAGRANCE THAT EVOKES THE AIR SCENTED BY A SANDALWOOD FAN IN MOTION. PRECIOUS SOFT WOODY INGREDIENTS LIKE SANDALWOOD FROM EAST INDIA, CEDAR WOOD, PATCHOULI AND VETIVER LEAD TO WARM BALSAMIC ACCORDS OF FIR, TONKA BEAN, VANILLA, BENZOE TOPPED WITH A HINT OF JASMINE AND CARROT SEED OIL.

FRA EDP 001

THIS ELEGANT AND COMFORTING FRAGRANCE COMBINES COOL ELEMENTS OF WHITE FLOWERS LIKE LILY OF THE VALLEY AND JASMINE WITH SOOTHING LIGHT HERBS AND REFRESHING WHITE TEA. A VERY SPECIAL MUSK ACCORD GIVES A UNIQUE CHARACTER TO THIS VALUABLE PERFUME.

    I like the juxataposition of the two materials.

    I love the idea. Concrete definitely isn’t what you expect to be sitting on top of a fragrance bottle. I only wish that she had played up the delicate element for a greater contrast with the concrete. Maybe a more delicate looking glass bottle ? Very cool though.

    The concrete top is a very nice touch to an otherwise mediocre bottle.
    It would be cool if the atomizer is integrated into the concrete portion so that the concrete would absorb and emit a bit of the scent and also show some natural staining from the perfume after repeated use.

    liked the idea, but not the result. Too unstable. I agree w/ Lauren and Neuhaus. The concrete must be treated as an accent, contrasts don’t necessary need to have same volumes, (cuantity or shape) and graphic presentation should emphasize the duality of the product.

    why not for men?

    I know what my brothers are getting for Christmas!

    The problem is to whom it is marketed too. Put a man's product in the bottle and you will solve a lot of vanity problems for woman and men. I want these for my brothers!

    Thanks.
