Lots of perfume come in a standard spray bottle that spritzes out a pre-measured portion of fragrance every time you pump. Although the tops work well, it’s sometimes nice to pour the perfume into a decanter type bottle instead. This allows you customize the amount of perfume you want on your body and adds a pretty aroma to the room!

To do this, the spray top of the old perfume bottle must be removed. Although the actual spray nozzle pulls off easily, actually removing the rest of the spray top takes a little work.

Things You'll Need

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

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

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 handle.

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. Don’t try to lift the knife too much because the bottle might break!

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 making a perfume mess.
