Abu Dhabi, June 1 (RIA Novosti) A Kuwaiti citizen has applied to the Guinness World Records for his collection of over 5,000 perfume bottles to be recognised as a world record, the Kuna news agency said Monday.
An astronomer by profession, Adel Al-Sadoun started collecting perfume bottles some 15 years ago, as he was charmed by the unique design created by perfume companies for their fragrances.

He gained national fame for his unusual hobby. His collection grew after perfume bottles were presented to him by friends and well-wishers. Some of the items are around 100 years old.
