    Smile Perfume encounter in the toilet

    So I went to visit a friend of mine, who's living in a student dorm. I had to go to the toilet, and to my surprise, I found this:



    The right bottle is a knockoff, but the left one is a genuine Thierry Mugler Alien!

    Have you ever encountered a perfume bottle that was used as a toilet freshener?

    My mum uses a Brittany Spears fragrance as " air freshener " in her bathroom

    Yes, LOL. Sometimes when I've purchased something I didn't like and knew I'd not wear, I'd use it as air freshener. Haven't lately, but I have in the past. Thanks for the pics!

    As eye-catching as the current one is, I think you might have missed a great thread title with "Alien encounter in the toilet"!

    My wife and I used to use Creed's Fleurs de Bulgarie as a vacuum bag freshener...

    I use Bulgari's Eau Parfumee au Thé Vert Extreme as floor wipe. Smells delicious

    But still, it seems to be a somewhat different category to display a designer perfume bottle on top of your toilet... coincidentally, it was the first time I smelled Alien and I thought it would be nice on the right person.

    Some people use a fragrance they don't like as an air freshener. I think that's an awful waste of Thierry Mugler's Alien, however, and that is some potent air freshener, lol!

    Vetiver Extreme by Guerlain makes a fantastic car air freshener. Seriously.

    Wow, I should do this with the samples I don't particularly like -- Nina, Notorious, the new Ed Hardy ...

    My dad sprays Polo on the inside of toilet paper rolls. You unroll some toilet paper, you smell Polo.

    Good place for this TM! (no offence to the fans, and I can even name a few names)

    Matter of fact, last year, still back in TX, I took 7 or 8 bottles of the fragrances that I was not able to sell through the BN Marketplace, to work and left them in the public restroom -- for people to spray or take, I did not specify. All bottles were gone by the end of the day.

    Reminds me of the time when my wife decided that my C&S #88 was a wonderful bathroom air freshener. Yikes! Visions of my precious bottle being used so unceremoniously prompted me to run out and buy what I thought would be an acceptable rose substitute - L'Occitaine Eau des Quatre Reines. Alas, it didn't pass the wife test, so there it sits on the medicine cabinet shelf. I think the musk drydown didn't appeal to her as a proper air freshener note. My second attempt, this time L'Occitaine The Vert (a proper room freshener) met with more acceptance.

    I hid my #88 shortly thereafter.

    Right now I use Charlie Gold as an air freshener. Although - my cat hates this one.
