    Okay problem of the century here...
    I dropped my cologne bottle out of my bag when running for a train, retrieved the bottle but something fell off the top so now when i press down on the squirty button nothing comes out... now im at a slight problem here as 1] it was expensive so i cant buy a new one, 2] i dont want to waste money on a new one [either way i cant as its out of production] so how do i get it working again does anyone know!?

    Yeah this happened to 3/4 of my aftershave bottles, so I would seriously appreciate the answer to this as well

    Can you not just tip it out onto your hand and dab it on?
    That's what I do when this happens to my perfume. If you've dropped it I would guess that somethings snapped or broken off so it might not be fixable.

    if the lid isn't coming off you could carefully break off the top of the bottle with pliers or something and then pour the liquid into a new bottle ..you can buy empty spray bottle thingys from boots or other beauty places

    mmm i thought of that but the only problem is i dont really like the idea of breaking it and thus spilling it :/ i feel a dummy run on an old bottle is called for first
