    Default Does my amouage sprayer look alright?

    I got my first Amouage today, Jubilation XXV. Its the one with the magnetic cap. I noticed that the sprayer looks a little recessed into the bottle, and when its depressed the nozzle hole goes past the lip, and some liquid gets stuck inside the lip.

    Could anyone tell me if the sprayer looks alright, and if this is normal? I'm concerned I got a defective bottle. Thanks!

    No expert on this house but from your photo it looks OK to my eyes. I have seen sprayers on other bottles (not this house) with sprayers a bit recessed like the one you show. I guess as long as it gives out an adequate mist...

    Awesome. The scent doesn't seem nearly as strong as my sample, but I suspect Jubi XXV is susceptible to olfactory fatigue. I think I remember some other poster saying something similar about this frag a couple of years back. Is this something you have experienced with this one?

    I have noticed this with maybe at least my Jubilation XXV and Reflection Man bottles, where it doesn't seem like a lot of clearance for the atomizer head. Not sure if it's like this on my Opus VI. My Jubilation XXV was bought retail online.

    When you spray, put more pressure on the opposite side of the atomizer head from the nozzle area, so that it might tilt the sprayer upwards (to try to avoid spraying inside of the metal thing).

    Seems like all of my bottles are pretty much like yours. But even when that nozzle hole goes almost (or halfway) past the lip, I don't see any liquid stuck inside the lip. Or then it is so minimal I just can't see it. But they still spray completely fine. Seems like nozzle stops JUST in time before it sprays inside the lip.

    Besides this, they do spray very good.
