    Question Using the last 5-6mm of an Amouage attar

    I am down to the last 5-6 mm of juice in my Amouage Tribute Attar bottle. The dipstick does not reach nearly the bottom and barely touches the juice. It is impossible to load up the dipstick so I can apply the scent. Turning the bottle does not work because the opening is so narrow. I don't really want to decant what is left into something else. Does anyone have a trick or solution to this problem?

    How about dapping from bottle straight to your neck and pulse points.

    PB's suggestion is the one I use (with Tribute as well). Though I wish the stick was longer and nearly touched the bottom of the bottle, it would certainly make things a little easier when you get to the last $200 worth of dribbles, lol!

    I have swished it around and the technique is only mildly effective. I have considered slipping a short piece of aquarium tubing on the stick but am afraid it might degrade, although the tubing is nontoxic.

    q tip? Not that I've run into this problem and know what to do, just thinking out loud.

    If that's the same as a cotton bud it would be wasteful!

    (They would absorb oil).

    Maybe cut a long plastic pipette to suit?
    Or borrow a knitting needle.

    Take a downtube from the atomizer of an empty decant, wash it and use that.

    You also may want to post on fragrances wanted section to see if anyone has one from a finished 30mL attar bottle they would be willing to part with.

    Decant the attar into a standard or a fancy 1/4 tola perfume bottle or even a sample vial using a pipette. To get the very last remnants of the oil from the Amouage bottle use a q-tip wrapped in clingwrap.

    I just looked up "glass stirring rod" on ebay. There may be some possibilities there.

    I am generally pretty creative but you all have given me some ideas I had not thought of. Thank you!

    Tribute is beautiful stuff and 5-6ml is still a lot of attar. I'd recommend decanting 1ml in a Wheaton vial and use the vial for application. http://wheaton.com/catalog/product/v.../category/542/

    Amouage Homage in a 1ml vial:

    flip it over with the opening on your skin.

    I think you mean ml not mm.

    I guess the best way is to just flip and dab from the bottle...

    Measuring the distance from the bottom it is about 5-6mm, but there is also about 5 mL left of juice. Yes, I know the difference even if I am American.
