 Filling The Pen With Perfume

Dip the applicator tip, while on the pen, into a perfume bottle and hold for about one minute. Be careful not to drop the tip into the bottle, it’s usually loose and will swell when filled. This should last 1-2 months of normal use.

Cleaning & Changing Perfume

To clean or change to a new perfume, remove the applicator tip and soak in pharmacy type alcohol (not hardware store wood alcohol).

Perfume Pens Care

Please be advised that the cap threads on and off of the tip. Extreme pressure, whether pulling or pressing, on the cap will permanently damage the applicator. Do not over tighten cap or damage may result.
