I did a simple light setup with the things I had at home. So I decided to shoot the perfume which was a glass bottle and backlighting works the best as it cuts off reflection, brings out defined edges and enhances the liquid inside the bottle. I used Godox v1 flash with red and blue gel overlaying which got me purple light for the overall picture. I used my grandpa's vesti and a tracing sheet to diffuse light (2nd diffuser was used to cut off specular highlight spot) and that vesti itself acted as the background. For reflection of the perfume bottle, I placed a glass piece below.
