There's probably a number of ways you could straighten it, but I hadn't even noticed it wasn't level. I'd leave it.

Looks good to me, but I'm still not buying any. A bit flowery for me. Smile

It's not quite level but only by the slightest amount. Enough though that if it was a proper comercial product shot, someone would notice! It's dead easy to rectify though.
The shot looks a bit flat and benefits from a bit more contrast which helps to separate the perfume from the background as at the moment, it tends to blend in.
In fact, if I was taking this shot, I'd push the colour and contrast on the perfume itself and the bit of foreground on which it's standing, then de-saturate the background a little and add a touch more blur to it.
There's nothing wrong with the composition or your visualisation of the shot except that it's perhaps a bit predictable.
Sorry if all that sounds a bit negative but you did ask! Hope it helps.
