    Default where to get boxes for my cologne?

    I have three bottles of cologne for which I threw away the boxes before realizing that this is a good way to keep them in the dark and out of light.... they are opium 100ml, Addidas ice dive 50ml and Addidas ice dive 50ml... where can I get or cheaply purchase the original boxes for these (I went to Walmart where I bought them and they said no way... they don't have any extras ever)? I mean, I could just use unmarked boxes from other products like tea and coffee boxes, but I have a big collection of cologne now and want them to look nice!
    Thanks

    Unless you find somebody who's just bought the stuff and is about to toss away the box, it's going to be hard. For bottles for which I don't have a box (like vintage bought on ebay etc), I use pouches like those for jewelry or china. I think the container store sells some.

    Ya... I may end up doing that as a last resort... but God, you pay $30-$120 for a bottle of cologne and you'd think the store could give you a free extra box or at least sell you one for $2 or something!

    I wouldn't think the store would have extra boxes! The perfumes come shipped in their boxes.

    Call up some local stores and ask if they have any that they throw out, but wouldn't mind giving to you.

    It'll be difficult to get boxes, so you'd better use onother boxes.

    I know some places (Macy's) will open up a brand new box (non-tester) and use it as their testers when they can't find the tester bottle. They just throw the box away after that.

    Check there!

    Kind of odd you would think a store would have extra boxes laying around...there aren't any items like that in any stores.

    But that Adidas scent can be found for like $10 online apparently, if it bothers you that much. Opium isn't as cheap...maybe you can luck out somehow.

    ya... I thought that because sometimes products go bad or break, etc ... I was thinking maybe they'd have boxes laying around for that reason or some reason I hadn't even thought of...

    Glad you like the Crown Royal bag idea. Those bags are great and can be used for lots of things. Including being made into a custom shift boot for my car.

    A crafts store like Michaels sells gift boxes in different sizes and shapes.
