    Exclamation Help needed with Habit Rouge EdT atomiser

    I have a bottle of Habit Rouge EdT, and the atomiser is stuck. If I press it, it just won't go down. Any ideas on what I can do?

    Thanks!

    I don't have any experience with this, but if it happened to me, I would try to lubricate the shaft of the sprayer with some oil, and see what happens. If it is totally stuck, it might be some other cause. A physical blocking of the sprayer shaft.

    Are you able to remove the cap from the atomizer for inspection? Can you upload a photo of the bottle?

    If nothing else worked, I would try to transfer the perfume to another bottle, using syringe and needle.

    I don't think the sprayer shaft is blocked, it's just that the spring-like mechanism isn't working. I'm not that comfortable about the lubrication idea - mostly because I do not trust myself to do a proper job.

    I'd go this route if I can find a way to get the liquid out. Thanks!

    Is the spring in tact? When you remove the cap, is the tip jammed in?

    Remove the sprayer and pour the content into an old spare bottle
