    I just lucked upon and purchased a perfumatic machine . Any help would be appreciated!!

    Just purchased a long sought after 1950's coin operated Perfumatic machine from eBay - no original bottles come with it, but the seller is sending me a bottle that he uses from Body Works. Anyone know where I can get original Perfumatic perfumes, original Perfumatic bottles and/or other bottles that will work with this machine?

    No bottles came with it? If not I have no idea where to get them, but if bottles came with it ájust pour whatever you want into them.

    No bottles come with it ( purchased it off eBay) and not sure what size the bottles are. The guy I purchased it from says he uses bottled from Bath Works and will send me one. I'm really looking for original Perfumatic bottles.

    Sounds like a neat little machine. Does it work by putting your $ in , choosing a scent, and then spraying whatever scent you choose out? I have never even heard of one of these before. Will have to google it to see some pics.

    They are VERY cool in a wonderfully retro way from a time now sadly past. I remember them from when I was a little kid there was one in the "Ladies Room" of a movie theater I used to go to - for any of you guys who have never been in an OLD movie theater they were nothing like the multi-plexes of today - they were often kind of "fancy" - and yes that is how they worked.
