From the Avery Fragrance Animal collection, the frog: "The AVERY Scent Animals collection is a line of ceramic animals entirely Made in Italy with gold-effect plating. The animals were exclusively created for AVERY Perfume Gallery shops as unique design objects, designed to add a rare touch to the environments they are placed in. As their name would suggest, these ceramic creatures can be combined with perfumes, absorbing fragrances and diffusing them around any given space. AVERY has created a miniature zoo that can bring a hint of life to any environment in a stylish, poetic, and distinctive way." $55 at Neiman Marcus.
Thank you for showing these, Robin. Well, if one goes by this example, they are very pretty ceramics, but the thrifty part of me thinks it would take quite a lot of perfume to make them fragrant enough.
I think they are for people who are going to use room sprays, or use fragrances as room sprays. They’re just a way of slowing down the diffusion. They should be pretty porous…even giving it a spray of perfume should scent your room for awhile.
Might discolor it too though!
