The neck provides support to the snuffer cap and the sprayer. This part of the perfume bottle is usually made of plastic or metallic material depending on the value. Carefully remove it with your hand or a plier in case it is extremely tight.

Step 3: Remove Traces of Dirt at the Mouth of the Bottle

Usually, this may come as a result of break-offs or scratches while removing the top parts.

Clean the bottle gently using your piece of clothing. Next, you are going to set your bottle ready for a refill.

Step 4: Immerse your Syringe into the Perfume Storage Bottle

Using your hands, you are going to slowly pull the perfume into the syringe, ensuring it gets to the mark of your choice.The quantity you pull out is usually based on the client’s preference.

Step 5: Transfer the Perfume into your Refill Bottle

This is done by inserting force on the syringe so that the perfume comes out. Repeat this step a couple of times until you heat the desired quantity.

Perfumes are sold from as low as 30ml, making the deal suitable for everyone. They also come in various sizes and shapes to suit various needs.

Step 5: Cover your Refill Bottle

You need to cover your perfume bottle to keep the fragrance intact and protect the perfume from spilling over.

Begin by fixing the neck at the base of the bottle’s mouth until it is firmly attached. Lastly, ensure you fix the sprayer and snuffer cup tightly leaving no room for leakages.
