Oh no, they are such beautiful little bottles too.
I did have trouble opening my Guet Apens too. In the POL forums, someone recommended the hot wet paper towel method. Microwave a wet paper towel for a few seconds until it's hot. Wrap this paper towel around the neck of the bottle for a few seconds and this should loosen it enough for you to twist the stopper off -- do not force it. You may have to do this a few times before it will open.
My GA opened up in the second or third try. I was also careful with the hot paper towel so that it did not touch and heat up the juice.
So sorry, I can't offer any help with saving the chanel22 bottle -- I can only offer my sympathies
