    Mugler Rubber flasks - horrible to spray. Azzaro Now and Twin along with Temperament by Franck Olivier and Unless by Panouge - horrible to display.

    Jacomo Paradox for woman - I sold both (green and blue), because it made me insane trying to spray with it

    My recently acquired NIB bottle of Dior Homme Intense has a horrible spray mechanism. The juice comes out as though it was coming out of a water pistol and could double as a splash bottle!

    Nu edp, Kingdom, and Lolita Lempicka, all very difficult to spray. Kingdom and Nu were hard to display as well, had to lie flat.

    The big FCUK bottles are OK to look at but are really hard to spray, even for me with very big hands for a woman. I have several friends who have smaller hands than me who just gave up trying to get their bottle to spray.

    They're also frustratingly unstable and tall enough to fall off even quite big shelves when they do fall over, and are very good at taking other bottles off the shelf with them. Mine is now stored on its side in one of the boxes of minis and samples because it causes less collateral damage that way.

    Just thought of another one. Roberto Cavalli Oro - the bottle is spindly with an annoying tendency of toppling over. Great scent, though!

    +1 for Oro and Kingdom.

    Also John Galliano. Wild bottle but an impossible sprayer.

    I'm very lucky with Oro. My perfume cupboard is, completely by chance, millimetre perfect for the bottle to wedge very gently in between one shelf and the next. It's tight enough that the bottle can't fall over but not so tight that it runs the risk of spraying the perfume. In that respect I have a lot worse bottles, like Magie Noire, the aforementioned FCUK and the Bulgari Omnia that just rolls of whatever you put it on.

    The Linari fragrances are a bit hard to grasp and spray and also take up a lot of room for display purposes.

    Beyonce Heat. Worst bottle design ever. It simply does not fit into the hand and has sharp corners where ones knuckles are supposed to rest. Elizabeth Ardens 5th Avenue series is similar, that cap has razor sharp corners.

    I quite agree with this. Serious, why can't they just make the rubber casing to fit around the sprayer?

    Most of the CdG frags, 2, 2 man, 8:88, Wonderwood etc. etc. etc.

    I was under the impression they are supposed to come with clear plastic stands.

    NOPE.

    GOD THEY ARE ANNOYING THE WAY THEY JUST LAY IN FRONT OF MY COLLECTION. I WANT THEM TO STAND UP AND BE PROUD OF WHO HEY ARE.

    my Dior Homme has the best sprayer,and the Creedatomizer puts out a lot of juice...

    the sprayer on myBurberry London broke on its first use

    as other have stated, the A*men sprayeris hard to press

    if you are sick of you sprayer, I suggest buying some of the plastic decant atomizers from accessoriesforfragrance.com....they kick butt !!!!

    I'll third Hedonist222 and The Unlucky Rogue, CDG2 Man is an asshole of a bottle for displaying, lying down and spinning around in front of the rest of my wardrobe like a difficult drunk at a party. Not only that but because each pebble-shaped bottle is sliiiightly unique, I've had several where the long thin cap has been slightly deformed to fit, meaning that it only fits a certain way round and scratches your hand if not properly aligned. I'd stop buying it if it weren't so agressively fabulous...

    Top marks for design go to Tom Ford private blends for being so chunky/flat that I can stack the small bottles on top of the large ones, and Serge Lutens for their tall, elegant, small-footprint bottle design - they even slip quite inconspicuously into a jacket pocket.
