I need a ye olde perfume with a squeezy pfff pfff ball on it. You know?

Ideally I'd like to buy one that is made that way. I found some in Victoria's Secret but the names weren't terribly suitable for the 9 yr old recipient. It shouldn't be too expensive.

Can anyone recommend where I should look?

You can buy the bottles on amazon ect and decant perfume into it.

Guerlain make one or two different types with puffers, but they're not cheap. If you want a cheaper version, buy a bottle and decant something cheap into it

The Guerlain ones are too expensive, you're right.

I can only find one sort on Amazon - a refillable one. It's okay, but not perfect.

I suppose they aren't the fashion right now.

How do you decant perfume though? All the perfumes I've ever had have the nozzle fixed onto the bottle so you can't open it to pour the perfume out. It's always confused me,

I think the perfume in Hollister has one of these attached along with exorbitant price
You could also try Zara kids - they have some 'perfumes' for children(!) that I think might fit the bill.

Jim incident think of that, my chanel still has a stopper but it's about 5 years old so not sure if they still make it like that. All my others are fixed nozzles.

Is there a difference between perfume and parfume?

The Britney Spears Curious 100 ml bottle has a puffer.

It is a lovely perfume and it is cheap (I think because it has been discontinued). You can still find it online.

Ha ha op, love your "pfff pfff" description!

I think Britney Spears Curious fits the bill wonderfully. Thank you so much Carpaccio. It seems that there is a version with a pfff pfff and one without - I shall order early and hope that we get the pfff pfff.

I have no idea how to decant perfume either. Thank god I don't have to try.

Is there a difference between perfume and parfume?

The generic term is perfume, scent or fragrance. In French its parfum.

However parfum is also the term for undiluted perfume i.e

cologne- the weakest
eau do toilette- should last 4-6 hours
eau de parfum- a bit stronger and longer lasting
parfum- the strongest concentration and usually the most expensive, coming in a small bottle and only needing a dab
extrait- "extract" for hard core users.
