    OMG YOU TRIED TO BITE IT?! A GLASS BOTTLE? how did that end? my goodness glass in your gums...thats awful. You're lucky you got it all out and it didnt turn into an infection or something! I have a ton of their samples and i just forcefully rock the stoppers side to side slowly as I pull it out, pushing against the neck of the sample with my fingers. The key is SLOWLY, otherwise you'll do that jerking thing that ends up sending airplane peanuts all over the aisle when you are on a flight, and this time the cleanup wont be as simple

    Your heart pretty much skips a beat. My trick is to try to deflect it with my leg/foot to somehow interrupt its velocity on the way down, so when it hits it does so slowly.


    Creed bottles are definitely not worth a damn, especially the bigger ones.

    I dread the day that I accidentally drop one of my babies, hopefully it's one of my tougher babies!

    I can report from recent experience that Dior Homme can take quite a shot and survive.

    A*men bottles are pretty darn tough.

    I had to actually use a big hammer to break one.

    Luckily I don't own a bottle of A*Men since all my tools are packed away. I'm not sure how I'd dispose of it, at least with the sense of satisfaction you must have felt.

    I never broke a bottle, but I did have a bottle of Muglar Cologne in my gym bag in my car on a real hot Summer day and it exploded. My car smelled quite good for a couple of weeks.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    I dropped Aqua di Parma Colonia Assoluta. It was a 30cm (1 foot) drop on ceramic tiles. Shattered... both bottle and I.
