    Re: Rebottling in a previously used bottle?

    Just keep the original bottle, buy a 15 ml glass spray bottle atomiser and carry it in your bag, everywhere you go.

    Re-fill when needed.

    Re: Azzaro ph 400ml

    If the ingredients list has Oakmoss and treemoss written on it, it should smell and last almost as well as the original formulation.

    The newest ones doesnt have it on the list, I heard.
