    p.s. I have not actually tested this method :-P

    Ah, I misunderstood. I thought the bottle emptied itself completely when you pressed the nozzle the first time. Now *that* would have been a disaster.

    The one house whose atomiseurs I won't touch anymore is Lanvin. I've gotten two that were DOA.
    On second thought, I might be tempted by Scandal. That would be worth trying to tear the thing apart to get at the juice.

    I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try that. I might have to have y'all talk me through it.

    And I'm DEFINITELY not brave enough to try that.

    The reason I'm asking all this is I'm planning to buy a large bottle of vintage [something] that's in an atomiseur, even though I've got scads of it already, because I figure under pressure it'll be better preserved than most -- and it's notoriously prone to decay if not perfectly stored.

    How can you tell a bottle is pressurized one? I am going to rip off a sprayer from 70's vintage Equipage soon to decant it. Sprayer just spritz a small amount and half of the stuff is all over the bottle and hands it leaks under the nozzle.

    Other way to use it though would be spraying all over and massage yourself with the wet bottle afterwards, but I rather try to decant it.

    What a picture LOL. Put your hand in a clear plastic/freezer-bag and keep spraying the bottle upside down until it fizzles no more and then uncrimp the nozzle from the bottle or cut around the neck with a glass-cutter and tap it off while bottle is till in the bag.

    I had a bottle of 70's vintage Equipage with the same problem. One of the 60ml or 120ml bottles. It was a natural spray (i.e. not pressurized).
    The little 25ml bottles seem to be more reliable.

    If it's pressurized, you don't have to pump the nozzle repeatedly. Once the nozzle is pressed (assuming the thing still works), the fragrance will be ejected in a continuous spray or stream until you lift your finger.

    Does your bottle have the word "aerospray" on it? If so, it's not pressurized. Aerospray = air spray, a.k.a. natural spray.
    I have only seen this term used on Hermes products.

    In his honor (and through his kind generosity) today I'll be wearing a 1989 version of Eau d'Hermes. We don't agree on everything, but this is one area where we're in perfect harmony.

    Yep, it says Aerospray in the bottle. I thought so about the pressurized bottles but had to make sure.

    Thanks. Hopefully it's not very difficult to remove the sprayer, never done that before but thankfully it's not extremely pricey stuff and it is only 60ml bottle if I brake the whole thing.
