    Default Help please: opening Vol de Nuit Parfum

    Good morning,

    I have just purchased a 30ml bottle of Vol de Nuit Parfum but cannot for the life of me work out how to get the gold 'stopper' off the bottle to access the juice inside. It is like a cruel trick as I have been waiting for a long time for this fragrance. It seems that whichever way a turn or lift the cap/stopper I am forcing it. Are the strings holding the cap in place supposed to break? I don't want to damage the bottle, so any help is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    You're holding a new bottle in your hands, I suppose. Cut the strings and twist the stopper counter-clockwise, possibly hold the bottle upside down for a few seconds before. You're getting there, no worries!

    Thank you. Was worried that the strings were supposed to remain in tact, somehow!

    It's open and smells divine. Easily unisex IMO. Thanks again for your help.

    Take all the wires and cellophane off the neck of the bottle. The ground glass should be smooth. (Once I had a bottle with a chip in it that had to be exchanged). I don't use the stopper to apply the parfum, I press the bottle to my wrist or neck and draw it across. This is the nicest way to get a healthy dose of juice. Little dabs from a stopper just don't cut it for me. Some are all worried about getting skin cells in the bottle. But it's your bottle now so go for it! Enjoy!

    Lucky you! I might just have to give this one an outing this evening.

    Congratulations on the new bottle of VdN. I love it and have read very good reports about the current juice.

    Probably my all time favourite, I do hope you love it as much as I do! I've had the Parfum for a couple of years now and love it to bits, BUT I have noticed that over time the level in the bottle diminishes more than my use of it warrants. I have resorted to wrapping the top in cling film and have decanted some into a 5 ml spray for regular use - it's wonderful stuff.

    Most pure parfums are sealed with onionskin/gut, wire or thread. Some have wax seals like Sous Le Vent and the Chanels. It's one of the pleasures of opening a new bottle of parfum! I think it's like opening a bottle of Champagne!

    Vol de Nuit parfum is one of my go-to scents and I am down to my last 1/5 of one bottle with a backup standing by! Enjoy!
