Oh, patents! Carolina Herrera (2) Perfume bottle for men

Copyright © Françoise Herrmann

The square perfume bottle for the Carolina Herrera Men's 212 perfume line is also patented. The Carolina Herrera Men's 212 perfume line bottle was awarded US design patent USD644108S1, titled Perfume bottle.

As a reminder a US design patent is different from a US utility patent, in that:

 “a “utility patent” protects the way an article is used and works (35 U.S.C. 101), while a "design patent" protects the way an article looks (35 U.S.C. 171)” (USPTO)

The patent drawings (figures 1 & 5) of the square Carolina Herrera men's perfume bottle are included below, together with marketed embodiments of the Men's 212 Carolina Herrera line of perfume. In particular, the silver, gold, black and glass embodiments of the Carolina Herrera Men's 212 VIP perfume bottles are included.
