Product Visualisation

  • I designed an alterntive packaging concept for single-use disposable perfume bottles, which are costly and non recyclable.
  • My design maintains a premium brand image through a bracelet designed for extended use. By comparing materials, manufacture and transport to a typical perfume bottle, I calculated a reduction of C02 and embodied energy of over 90%.

How it Works

The aluminium bracelet can be refilled with small recyclable PET sachets of perfume. The perfume bracelet suspends the oil based perfume in a polyeurethane foam. Through tightening a threaded screw pressure in the foam can be increased and more perfume can be pushed out around the wrist.

Heaven Scent

I aimed to address some existing problems with perfume bottles. They are deliberately designed to make dissassembly difficult to prevent reuse, and contain complex assemblies inside the atomiser. The perfume bottle I dissassembled had 12 parts.

A Typical Perfume Bottle

I built several concept prototypes and conducted some user testing of the concept. I experimented with different types of perfume and foam.

Prototyping

I used CES edupak to analyse the environmental impact of the transport, use and disposal of both a typical perfume bottle and my redesign. My concept resulted in a significant improvement of embodied energy and carbon footprint.

Breakdown of Embodied Energy and Carbon Footprint
