Step 3: Remove the fine glass and spray bar

No matter how careful you are, tiny pieces of glass are bound to break off the neck of the bottle - especially perfume bottles with metal bases. However, this is an easy fix as you simply use a paper towel to gently wipe the neck to avoid any glass from entering your perfume bottle.

Step 4: Use a funnel or syringe to transfer perfume

Now that the perfume is exposed, you can transfer the liquid to the bottle you want. Instead of pouring the contents into the new container, as it can easily spill, use a funnel or syringe to transfer the perfume to its new home so that you can avoid any mess or wasted product.

Step 5: Seal the bottle

If you have been able to avoid any breakage so far, seal the bottle for future use. First, reapply the base to the neck of the bottle. If this does not work, you can skip this step and reapply the sprayer. The sprayer should sit on the neck like a lost puzzle piece. However, it is ideal if the sprayer is set on the tightening mechanism so you can screw the bottle back onto the neck for a tight seal.
