Can you return to shop? It's faulty.

Glossynotflossy Thu 14-Feb-13 19:38:11

No i habeas had it a few years

WishIdbeenatigermum Thu 14-Feb-13 19:46:35

Rinse it? Poke the hole with a needle?

Is it the original Prada in the rectangular bottle? I had the same issue and ended up binning it hmm before you do that though you could decant some into a Travalo or similar. Must be a design fault with those bottles.

Decant into an atomiser?

Glossynotflossy Thu 14-Feb-13 20:56:00

Yes square bottle.i won't bin it but will try a atomiser

What is an atomiser?

ggirl Thu 14-Feb-13 20:59:38

OMG I have a bottle of Prada from about 5 yrs ago (so prob off) and the atomiser stopped working after a short while.
I got in Dubai airport.

Howthe heck do you get the spray bit off to decant it?

ggirl Thu 14-Feb-13 21:02:39

mine is like this here

MooMinCow Thu 14-Feb-13 21:07:25

With the Travalo you just stick the pointy stem (that appears when you pull off the round spray bit) into the bottom and pump furiously (snigger)

Same here! It was my wedding perfume 8 years ago and can't bear to part with it, but also hasn't worked for years.

Glossynotflossy Thu 14-Feb-13 21:08:28

Yes that's the one i have too

MooMinCow Thu 14-Feb-13 21:11:46

Yup my bottle was about 5 years old. I think I had a whine about it once at their counter in Selfridges and the nice man gave me a travel sized rollerball sample which is still going strong smile

travelo failed mine as the pump mechnism wasnt working. I asked my FIL to take the whole top bit of the glass bottle (of Chanel allure) off with one of his power tools! It worked and I decanted the perfume into a proper perfume bottle I bought on amazon. In a month, the perfume went bad sad

Exactly the same happened to me, I haven't tried decanting but also can't bear to throw it away even though it's been 2.5 years...

Glossynotflossy Fri 15-Feb-13 06:48:11

Mine won't pump
