When we speak of “petaloid bottles” it’s usually the base that we’re talking about— that radial structure on the bottom of PET soda bottles that makes them strong enough to withstand their internal pressures and gives them “feet” to stand on.
But the Marc Jacobs “Petite Flower on the Go” bottle is petaloid in an entirely different way: a daisy-shaped figural bottle. (A travel size version of the larger “Daisy” perfume bottle with plastic daisies on the cap)
I’ve read that the plastic petals can be snapped off to make the “Petite Flower” even more petite. It would be nice if they could snap off individually —(“she-loves-me-she-loves-me-not” style)— but looks to me like four of the flower petals come off all in one piece.
(The flower-shaped bottles come in a box, after the fold…)
