How do you refill a metal travel bottle ?

Take off the cap and sprayer of your main perfume bottle. The cap is usually a plastic or glass attachment to protect the sprayer. The sprayer is the piece on the top that you press down to release perfume. To remove the cap from your main bottle, simply lift up on the cap and place the cap to the side. Then, gently pull off the sprayer with your fingers. The short, vertical nozzle will remain.
  • This way, you can get the perfume from the main bottle into your travel bottle.


Pull off the metal casing of your travel perfume bottle. Most metal perfume travel bottles come with an outside casing to protect the inside unit. Hold the bottom of the casing between your index finger and thumb, and slide it off. It is easier to fill up your travel bottle if you remove the outer casing.
  • Once you remove the casing, you’ll see a small plastic tank to house the perfume.9

Place the bottom of your travel bottle on top of the spray nozzle. At the bottom of the plastic unit is a small red dot. Align the red dot with the nozzle on your main perfume bottle.
  • If you did not take the metal casing off, that’s okay. Simply line up the bottom end of the travel perfume bottle with the nozzle on the main bottle. You can still fill the atomizer with the casing on.


Lift up and down on the perfume travel bottle to pump it full of perfume. Once the red dot or bottom of the bottle is aligned with the nozzle, gently press down on the travel bottle. This releases perfume into the unit so you can pump the atomizer full of perfume. Continue lifting up and down several times until your travel perfume bottle is full.
  • When you do this, you are essentially filling the travel bottle like how you usually press down on the sprayer to apply perfume.

  • Look at the side of the bottle to easily watch the perfume fill up, whether or not you removed the metal casing.

  • When full, the travel perfume bottle holds 50 full sprays or 0.13 ounces (3.9 mL).11

Replace the casing of the travel bottle and the sprayer and cap of the main bottle. Once the travel bottle is full, take the bottle off of the main perfume bottle, and put the metal casing back in place. Then, place the sprayer and cap back onto the main perfume bottle.[5]
  • When you put the sprayer back on, it will spray out a bit of perfume. Point the bottle toward a sink so it doesn’t spray into your eyes.
