French term or phrase: col enfoncé
This is part of a description of a bottle for a new perfume.

Vous évoquiez plus haut le col enfoncé comme votre première crainte, qu’en a-t-il été réellement ?

M. X : Notre première impression fut la bonne, puisque pour réaliser les petites bosses doublées d’un col enfoncé, il a fallu aux verriers plus de 6 mois de développement et faire preuve d’imagination.

I don't understand what a "col enfoncé" refers to concretely, nor do I know what it's called in English.

Any help would be appreciated

caved-in bottle neck

but it is not really caved in; the indentures are there for a purpose e.g. for a better grip

bezel neck

Could this be some sort of bezel neck. I don't know much about it actually.
