One of the benefits of IPBA membership is the Perfume Bottle Quarterly (aka the PBQ). While our archives of 35 years of PBQ issues is for members-only, we’re providing here a sample of our award-winning PBQ for non-members to get a taste of what they are missing. Our PBQ is a high-quality, full color, magazine with 32 pages (or more) of perfume and vanity item research, as well as organizational news.
The PBQ was recognized by the Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors at its August 2019 convention with the following awards:
