    Default Creed 250 ml flacon

    When you take the stopper on a 250 ml Creed flacon on and off several times, air will come inside the flacon. Will the scent loose its strenght and get weaker over time?

    I would guess that the degradation of the scent would be negligible over time unless the action was excessive.

    I would get an atomizer. Fill the atomizer then store the flacon. It will greatly minimize the number of times you will need to open it.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Original Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Creed - Aventus
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    7. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    8. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
    9. Tom Ford - Rive d'Ambre
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    Depends on how many times you do it and for how long. It's minimal if you do it to refill and atomizer a few times throughout its' life. But if you are going to do it a few dozen times or even over a hundred times then the perfume will lose it's top notes.

    I agree with dougczar, get an atomiser.

    Personally I would find it very difficult to get through 250ml of any fragrance, especially given how much I apply these days.
    Currently wearing: Antaeus by Chanel

    One can always decant to a smaller splash type bottle, to avoid opening the larger flacon so often.

    Is the funnel that comes with the Creed leather atomizer supposed to be screwed steady on top of the 250ml flacon, and then decant?

    If done in short increments it should get stronger first, then very gradually weaker over a long period of time.
