Can you take the top off and use it that way? You could just put it in a different pray container or even use it by dabbing a little on. Otherwise the only thing I can think of is breaking it in something to collect the remaining perfume and then pour it into a new container, but that would be a last resort! lol... can you try taking it back and asking them to fix it or refund you? If it wasn't yoru fault, they should fix it!

I always do the hot water thing. You could try a wash cloth and wipe it out.

If you cannot get it to work call the manafactor help line, they may just send you a new bottle. I've done it with my Ninja blender. It started smoking, they sent me a new one without even asking for the old one back. Told me to just toss it. Most places are good about backing up their product.

I would take the pump part out/off, place it in water and pump- see if that clears it up. Sometimes pumps just suck and you need to use a different container.  GL!!  :)

I've done something like this too, I let it soak in hot water and then run more hot water and try to pump water.

The cord to my drip coffeemaker got hot- we'd had it for a year or so- so I called the company to ask if this was normal, and the lady said probably not, so we'll send a new one. Which was very nice. Then they sent two in different packages, so I ended up with an extra. I called and said you've sent me two, and they acted like so what do you expect us to do about it.

On the other hand, the hand mixer I bought that had two sets of beaters, the one set didn't work, so I called, and the company said too bad, but we'll sell you a new mixer, I said why do you think I would buy another of your products when the one I have is bad.

You can take the top off and pour it into an atomizer bottle or mister bottle to use.

I would just take the sprayer off and dab it on.

Sometimes the sprayers just break. You could take it back to the store --they may replace it for you.
