Perfume Bottles

I received a link to “The History and Evolution of Perfume Bottles” that you may find interesting. The International Perfume Bottle Association is a member of the FOHBC and has a very informative website. Spencer Darby thought it would make a good addition to our resources and could help others. Spencer is a Boy Scout and one of our young members. Thanks Spencer.
