Welcome!

Please understand that this website is not affiliated with any of the perfume companies written about here in any way, it is only a reference page and repository of information for collectors and those who have enjoyed the classic fragrances of days gone by.

One of the goals of this website is to show the present owners of the various perfumes and cologne brands that are featured here how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back these fragrances!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the fragrance, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories, what it reminded you of, maybe a relative wore it, or you remembered seeing the bottle on their vanity table), who knows, perhaps someone from the company brand might see it.

How to Remove the Spray Top From Old Perfume Bottles

#1. Place one hand on the plastic spray nozzle on top of the perfume bottle. Place the other hand on the perfume bottle itself.


#2. Pull straight up with your hand to remove the nozzle from the perfume bottle.


#3.Use a pair of scissors to cut away any plastic encasement surrounding the neck of the perfume bottle. A pocket knife can be used if the scissors are difficult to maneuver.


#4. Use the tip of the pocket knife, or scissors, to carefully pry off the metal section adjoined to the neck of the perfume bottle. Insert the tip of the blade under one section of the metal and gently pry upward. Repeat the process around the entire neck of the perfume bottle. Do not try to lift the knife too much as this will break the bottle.


#5. Use pliers to grasp the metal piece and gently pull up and away from the perfume bottle. Do this carefully to avoid breaking the glass bottle as well as spilling the perfume.


Refilling spray top perfume bottles is not recommended as they may leak.
