UK Chapter

of the
International Perfume Bottle Association

A group for collectors of perfume bottles and perfume ephemera



The UK Chapter


The UK Chapter was founded in 2001 by Jan Burke with the help of Lenore Hiers of the IPBA. The convention in October 2001 was the first major event to be hosted by the group. Another successful convention was held in October 2002 and the following years have confirmed the UK Convention as an established and important date in perfume collectors' calendar.

  Chair person for 2003/4 was Pamela Taylor, who is well known in the perfume community having written a book "Heavenly Scents", published in 2000. Pamela now lectures on a variety of topics, including Thomas Hardy, Victorian dolls, antique silver and of course, perfume bottles.

Until 2016 our Chair person was Angie Holmes who has been a member of the UK Chapter almost since it's formation. From April 2016 our Chair is Phyllis Dohanian of Boston Massachusetts who has been a supporter of the Chapter almost since the beginning.
