Here Are 8 Beautiful Things for the Perfect Dresser Top

June 7, 2019 Home By

Your dresser top serves more than just utility. It’s not a dumping ground. It says something about you and you should put some thought into it. It’s a space for a few beautiful objects and it should be kept pretty clean and minimal. Whatever you choose to put there, remember that it’s visible to whomever you might let into your bedroom. So, it should not simply deliver purpose, but look very, very nice while doing it. To that end, we’ve chosen a handful of items that we think will look damn good. They’ll bring you a bit of joy, serve you well and tell anyone who steps in your bedroom that you have good taste.

Your Signature Scent


Some choices are obvious: a timeless, well-designed lamp, a fragrant candle or three, a chic pen, superior coasters and a beautiful catch-all tray. While you might be inclined to hide your fragrance in the bathroom cabinet, we recommend choosing a bottle that’s attractive enough to leave out on display. It’s not just about easy access. Montblanc’s Explorer is our pick, ticking the box not just for looks but truly for the scent. It’s bright at the top but married with leather and wood undertones. This is thanks to its three prime ingredients Italian bergamot, Haitian vetiver and Indonesian patchouli making Explorer perfect for everyday use. Leave it on your dresser top, and you’ll have it for easy access so you’ll never forget a spritz.
