I think the biggest problem with these is the unavailability of replacement inner bottles and spray tops, A while ago I had a good relationship with one of the Creed reps and she'd give me 2-3 silver or gold replacement spray tops when I'd make an order but the glass bottle inners are just not distributed at all.
I've mentioned this here several times, but back in 2010, I was discussing Vintage Tabarome and its availability (or lack thereof) as they still had a tester. She said she believed some other NM stores still had flacons of it, but after calling several, came to the realization the stock shown in their computers wasn't up to do date (and several were broken bottles). I made reference to Creed Boutique's selling of VT in the atomizer for $405 for a limited time, to which she said that was absurd and made the following offer: buy an atomizer and she'd fill it for free from the tester bottle as they no longer had any left to sell.
Naturally I hopped on that like a hobo on a ham sandwich...

To the OP: You could try your luck on eBay, sometimes these Creed atomizers do pop up and can be had for a lot less than the MSRP. This one is currently listed http://www.ebay.com/itm/Creed-perfum...-/310809737987 at about $65.
PS: Jazznpool - that is an awesome collection of Creed atomizers! You are indeed a devoted Creed fanboy. ;-)
