Torre Agbar, Barcelona Spain.
This sleek test tube is actually YSL's new starchitect-designed fragrance bottle. Torre Agbar architect Jean Nouvel is the designer, and from the looks of it, the Frenchman hasn't strayed too far from his tower-erecting formula. The limited-edition bottle is for the brand's popular Chinese-ginger-meets-citron-zest scent, L'Homme. "It's phallic, but then you turn it upside down and it's not," Nouvel said at last night's NYC launch. "I wanted it to be very ergonomic, so you can put it in your coat pocket." Nouvel also included a "sparkle of light" bobber (with an iridescent YSL logo) inside.
