Lighting a glass bottle

Lighting a packshot of a glass perfume bottle.. the perfume and glass are so transparant that its almost impossible to make it visible, it absorbs any background color, ive tried different things like making a hole in the table to throw some light under the bottle but no effect... i guess it's just the way it is? See the shot below

Basically, with reflective or transparent subjects like glass, water, etc.,
you want to rely more on soft lighting. Brilliantly lit areas are really
just reflections or refractions of the large, soft sources.
Opaque subjects with surface texture and color respond better to hard,
directional lighting, like fresnels.

There's a pretty solid chance in that photo on the right that the left bottle has a piece of white card or diffusion material hidden behind it.
that is actually a plastic bottle with yellow gel in it
