Hi Guys!

First time poster here, with a real question.

Long story short: I love my Tabac aftershave splash, but an unfortunate accident left the cap of the bottle smashed into pieces. I was at least able to salvage the top of the cap (that seals the small hole, so the bottle doesn't simply dry up).

What I would like to know, is if there are any generic, plain glass bottles that I could pour my remaining contents into for regular use. Does anyone sell empty aftershave bottles?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

I'd check ebay or etsy for old A/S or apothecary bottles, they should fit the bill nicely.

Go check out an antique store. I have a couple of old bottles with caps and even corks. I keep my witch hazel in an old clear bottle with a cork in it. Looks cool in my nook. I also have a couple/3 small colored bottles with bail type tops with ceramic tops with rubber seals. I found these at a yard sale and paid $1.00 for all 3. I keep my homemade pre shave oil, and glycerin in 2. I still have one for a back-up. Those look cool in my nook too.

Thats is what I do also. Ive found some nice glass bottles at flea markets as well. Some also use Tabasco bottles.

Ahh the Tabasco bottle... The McIlhenny's originally used cologne bottles for the sauce... I had forgotten that till you brought it up... So in reality a Tabasco bottle IS a cologne bottle.... Does that make sense? lol

I didnt know that but I have a couple tabasco bottles. One I have my Pinaud Quinine hair tonic in the other is empty. Speaking of strange things. I read somewhere that Aqua Velva was first developed as a mouth wash. Huh
