I've taken my various aftershaves and decanted them into dasher bottles. Why? More uniformity for a future shaving shelf DIY build.

Anyone else decant?

I have a few vintage bottles I decant into. A very early Pinnaud bottle for my Clubman. A 1950's era Aqua Velva bottle that I got with product inside which I used. It now contains modern formula. The original was a bit more subtle but lasted longer...An 1890's patent medicine bottle for my bay rum. A skull shaped liquor bottle (not vintage) that is full of Osage Rub. (really cool green skull). I also have a 1940's era bottle of "The Veg" that is still 1/2 full of the original stuff. Smells great. Much more subtle than the modern stuff. I only use it on special occasions. When it runs out I guess I'll keep more Veg in it... I have a vintage barber bottle that I keep my witch hazel in. Does that count too? I keep all my vintage and decanted bottles on the same shelf in my nook....

I only buy glass. Plastic often has deleterious effects on scent and is an ecological nightmare I keep to a minimum.
I like the kaliedoscope dance of morning light on the bottles
the different shapes and ephemera labels.
I like letting people know what I like and how much I use.
I don't like the fact no one else catches on, or sees the price and decides against buying.

I frequently decant AS from dasher bottles to 2-3 oz spray bottles. Sometimes just a few sprays to the palm is more than enough to do the job.

Excellent idea. the smaller the bottle the better it mixes.
Only after mixing my large bottle Pinaud did I find I like it. As a newbie...!

Anybody who let their aftershave air before use? That I thought about when I read the title as well.

Looking forward to getting some small bottles for on the shelf. Some large bottles are on their way Smile Philipp
