I wanted my box to have a sense of realism so I added some more text to indicate the volume and type of scent.

I wanted a background that looked like cascading silky material after a lot of messing about with clothilde tags I thought I would give the Loft Nurbs a try. Here are 3 splines.

My 3 splines placed in a Loft Nurbs.

I added some small Planes with a luminance material around the bottle. I also added 2 spotlights and 1 omni. I also used compositing tags to specify which items to light.

step 16 of 18

I discovered this fantastic tutorial by Alexander Alexandrov on creating your own hdri maps. So I thought I would give it a go.
The tutorial is well worth a look

step 17 of 18

I made a new material, coloured it with my hdri map and added to a sky object in my scene.
I rendered with AO and GI. I tried to keep my settings low and my render time was just over 1 hour 10 mins.
I took my image into Photoshop to manipulate my images colour and give some contrast. I added my logo to the bottle in Photoshop also.
