Nearly 2000 perfume bottles that were once housed in the Annette Green Perfume Museum in New York have now found a new home at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles, CA. According to Robert Nelson, director of FIDM’s museum and galleries this is the only perfume museum in the country. The collection spans more than a century and includes perfume bottles from more than 165 international fragrance houses ranging from De Vigny to Chanel and Ralph Lauren.
For the debut, the bottle collection is being featured in two exhibits. Fashion Makes Scents is a temporary exhibit running until Dec. 2 at FIDM’s ground floor museum and mixes 300 bottles with items such as garments, shoes and jewelry and a smaller, permanent space on FIDM’s second floor houses 165 bottles.
