I am making DiY cologne . You can also add vegetable oil and some fruit extract to your cologne or perfume . I did that for mine and now I am on the hunt for cork wood . The sprayer works but it is not TSA Travel ready. My uncle saved them as abstract art

Thank you very much, now I wish I’ve saved even more, it is a shame no to use them for something. Next spring I will use 2 and I will put a single daffodil in them,

It is interesting that this post mentioned that glass bottles, even from perfumes, can be reused as a decorative ornament. My wife loves to do bottle arts. Maybe I can propose this idea to her for her perfume bottles.
