    Default Salvaging the atomizer on a bottle of Prada (2004)

    A family member of mine owns and loves Prada (the eponymous 2004 fragrance). Out of the numerous Angel clones and imitators on the market that she has tried, this one works the best for her. However, the atomizer on her bottle (the normal type, not the bulb atomizer) recently quit working.

    She's had the bottle in her arsenal for quite some time, but I wonder if it could be salvaged (which is why I came over to the women's board). I know that the bulb atomizer for Prada had problems that were well-documented here, but I haven't heard much about the normal atomizers. If the atomizer can't be salvaged, should I contact Prada and/or Coty/Puig USA? I know a Coty rep locally; for those outside the US, Coty distributes Puig fragrance brands like Prada and Paco Rabanne in the US.

    Or is the bottle a lost cause like all those broken bottles of pre-redesign Bulgari Black?
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    Some people have found they could use pliers to pry off the sprayer unit.

    See previous threads:

    I'm in the same position and am not having such luck with the pliers. Did you manage to get it off yet?
