    Default Tom Ford Private Blend Flacon - Question

    Hey guys, yesterday I received a TF Oud Wood 250ml. Is there a correct way to open the bottle? I tried screwing, just lifting with no sucess.

    I don't know specifically about Tom Fords, but in general, a trick one can try is a change in temperature (for instance, refrigerate the bottle for 30') or place a hot towel on the cap.

    Of course, make sure that there's no plastic or the like sealing the cap (I don't know if tom fords have it, other brands do, and sometimes it's hard to see).

    And one thing you should not do is force. The glass can shatter. Rather, try twisting or rocking the cap, but lightly, and perhaps with a towel, to avoid shattered glass if, by change, the glass breaks. (I say because I did once cut myself trying to open a stuck vintage perfume bottle).

    You just have to twist it really hard. The plug has a sort of plastic gasket on it so they really dont get frozen in place like the glass on glass ones.

    I think you Sir need to join a Gym and start pumping some IRON!!! Lol.... Just grab some wd-40 and lubricate the perimeter area!!! Just kidding!!
    oohh no , I forgot just get a rubber mallet and smack the sides....lol....No , ofcourse NOT...let's be serious, just keep twisting from left to right and lightly tap (with a cushion object but extremely lightly)around edges to unloosen any pressure, then start process once again ...that is twisting it open...make sure you have a good handle of base while also having a sound hold of the flacons cap.....

    The cap has rubber. You have to pull it gentle

    I've had problems with these recently (and I do go to the gym!) since they've gone to the all rubber interior plug. Try taking a butter knife and wedging it in the crack between the bottle and stopper, do it from various locations around the circular opening, not to get it open, but to loosen it up a bit, then try twisting it off. Do so carefully so the juice doesn't splash out.
    Splits!
