    Default Refilling Old Creed Bottles

    So I dig through the old threads seeing if there was any solution for refilling old Creed bottles. Apparently no one has a good solution. Has anyone tried refilling bottle with a syringe with a blunt needle (probably 20 guage)? I can get the syringe and needle, but do not have any empty Creed bottles to try. Does anyone have one to spare? I can post my finding if successful.

    I have never tried this fancy experiment, so unfortunately cannot say anything. I am sure others will chime in with more helpful posts.

    I hope it can't be done easily. As if there aren't enough "Is my Creed ___ a Fake?" threads...

    To the OP: Just wait until you do have an empty one to tamper with and then try it and see what result you get. (I'm guessing all your Creed bottles are full at this time)

    Perhaps if we could get a few heroin addicts with left over needles to give it a try ... Im sure we'll get an answer.

    I think if the spraying mechanism uses a rubberized cover you should be able to do it. The only difference would be how much space there would be between the housing and the sprayer. I would think a 22 gauge or smaller would probably work.

    Yes, I have a full bottle and will take awhile before I can test my hypothesis

    So... What exactly are you planning on putting into the Creed bottle?

    I'm sure you won't have trouble finding at least one bottle from someone here.

    Maybe purchase a near empty bottle from someone and decant out the remaining juice into a container.

    If you're planning on refilling it with a scent other than the one that was originally in the bottle, there's a reactive agent on the glass inside that will change color that says it's a fake.

    Was actually thinking of doing this myself, I've a few decents coming and wouldn't minding filling up a proper creed bottle with the real juice as the sprayers are most likely better

    I am planning on doing this with my empty bottles. So that they can be displayed and look "full"
