    Default Fragile bottle discussion - Shay & Blue

    Hi folks.

    First off, this has zero to do with the juice. This is purely a packaging concern.

    The glass vessel in their house bottles (I believe it's common across the line, at least their opening releases that I know); pale translucent grey cylinder with conical tapered shoulder.

    This bottle is really, really thin. It's always 60 gm (2 oz) lighter than every other 100 ml bottle I can measure. That's a lot of glass to be missing.

    I don't expect this to survive a one foot fall on a hard surface (tile, stone, thick glass/other bottles!)) reliably ... and I would hate to lose the juice; I really like it (mine is Blacks Club Leather).

    Anyway, heads up to fellow owners. I'm putting a rim of black duct tape around the base of mine to create a little bumper. I'm quite sure-fisted but accidents happen.

    Cheers peeps,
    /Acey

    I own a number from them, but I never worry about the glass bottle just the spray works properly. It could well be an eco thing and not use so much glass in the bottle? Why not contact Dom the owner and ask?

    I do not keep or spray any of my fragrance in the bathroom so the rest of my apartment is carpet.

    Although currently don't have any, good to know. Thanks.

    Heavier glass can break just as easily upon impact. If you have ‘butter fingers’ I suppose installing padded floorings could be an (eccentric) option.

    Just to add a little humor to this ghastly topic (losing perfume), just moments after I posted that comment I knocked my phone on the floor three times in the span of about twenty minutes ...

    I own three Shay & Blue's (Sicilian Limes, Blood Oranges & Blacks Club Leather). I have never felt that the bottles were very thin. AFAIK it isn't an issue with users of Shay & Blue perfumes.

    I visited the S&B shop in London only last week. Dom himself was in the shop, that's De Vetta not Hemingway (now that would be a laugh!). He's a very nice person. I took home a bottle of Blacks Club Leather.
