Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles 2018, part 10

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes special edition bottles from Bvlgari, Philosophy, Mugler, Tiffany and Bond no. 9.

From Bvlgari, Rose Goldea in the Jacky Tsai edition: “A new Limited Edition celebrating Rose Goldea first anniversary created in collaboration with Chinese artist Jacky Tsai.
