    The CdR is not really ruined, but you can still see the "faintest" trace of residue at the bottom of the bottle, which still has about 8 mls in it..

    That actually brings up something I've been wondering about. Does anyone know of a place online that sells nice little atomizers? I mean, really nice? Enameled, engraved, otherwise decorated? Google Scholar hasn't been able to help me on this one. It doesn't matter so much, but a nice bottle, for me, is also part of the enjoyment...

    I thought I was the only one! I resort to this when I don't have an atomizer dedicated to the fragrance.

    I do the same thing as Kumquat, I put the open bottle against my wrist, crook of elbow and décolletée, tilt the parfum onto my skin and afterward touch my wrists and arms together to disperse the scent. If the bottle has a nice enough stopper, such as some of my Caron, Carven and Patou scents I just use the stopper to apply.
    I give not a thought to contamination of scents. they all smell just as lovely as when I first opened them. I do only apply extrait after showering, on clean skin, so that must make a difference...I guess? Too many other things in life to worry about, at least for the time being.

    If the residue is all at the bottom of the bottle, and it bothers you to look at it, maybe you could "vacuum" it up with a pipette? Rather like a bottom-feeding fish sucks up food from the ocean floor. Then transfer that residue-filled liquid bit to another bottle and use it first.

    I've also heard of folks straining perfume through a coffee filter to get rid of flotsam. Since you have a relatively small amount left, though, it may not be worth it.

    There certainly is a large number of posts to this thread and I, for one am glad. I have learned the combined experience and knowledge of many sage fragranceurs. My thanks to you all. I have read all posts with great interest.

    I decanted 2ml of my N°5 into a small atomizer yesterday,
    applyed some on my arm, but I'm still not impressed.
    I still think the EdP is both stronger, has more longevity and
    better sillage than the parfum. Total bummer! I could have
    gotten a 100ml bottle of EdP instead of that flimpsy parfum!
