    Default Yikes! Help needed! Creed Injured!!!

    Ack - does anyone have an empty creed 4oz bottle any kind that they can donate a small piece of? See below!

    I got an *amazing* deal on a 4oz Himalaya, authentic in box, 99% full from someone locally - well I was one happy camper ... for about three days. Then as I was idolatrously admiring the bottle I dropped it, and this small plastic nozzle which connects the sprayer to the stray that goes into the bottle broke.

    Does anyone happen to have an empty 4oz Creed bottle that they can send me this tiny plastic piece?

    Other than that, does anyone have any ideas about what to do? I can't get the liquid out of the bottle anymore, nott even to use as a splash. Any attempts end up having it seep out of the hole if I put pressure on it, and it just ends up all over the bottle and some on my hands.

    See the photos for what I mean

    1. Happy Creeds!


    2. But lo! All is not as it appears! Himalaya is missing his nozzle thingy!


    3. This is the nozzle thingy that I need as a transplant - can easily be removed either with a tweezer or small pliers.


    4. THis is my de-nozzled Himalaya


    5. These are the sad remains of the aforementioned nozzle thingy - the schmutz on it is from trying to glue it.

    I just poured coffee on the floor for your dead Himalaya. Himalaya R.I.P, we will always love you.

    Thanks Maz - but he's still alive! He's so young, and so 95% full of juice! All he needs is a tiny nozzle piece transplant!

    That brings up a question I've always had - are all the sprayers and caps on Creeds the same size, regardless of the size of the bottle? I use to have a 75mL Jasmal and I remember the cap being pretty big, but I don't have it any more to compare.

    If they are the same size than anyone with any empty creed bottle of any size can help me out by donating/selling that little nozzle bit under the sprayer!

    Shame i just threw out a bottle. I kept the cap and nozzle but not that piece. I do have a couple of nearly empty creeds though. Probably will finish one in the next couple of months, so if you still need it then I would be happy to donate.. In the meantime maybe try writing to creed?

    Great storyboard. You should do animated Creed flicks. Everyone does Lego these days, but perfume bottles...fresh.
    Can't help with the plastic I'm afraid, I trashed by Green Frch Tweed bottle.
    I'm just thinking though, it should not be off an Ambre Canelle or Royal Delight bottle, I think you would notice the change in smell.

    Good luck, things will work out - perhaps your local Creed dealer could even help out.

    Perhaps of greater concern is the animal print for the bedspread...

    Actually it's not a bedspread, it's just a cover for my midi keyboard so it doesn't get all dusty - however, they did used to be curtains!
