    Default noob qn regarding alpha 7 bottle

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    hey

    guys i've got a really dumb qn about the alpha-7 (scented) bottle.

    when i unscrew the cap and overturn the

    bottle, none of the liquid comes out. the only way i can get any liquid outta the bottle is by violently shaking the

    bottle, at which point a random number of droplets fly all over.

    Am i doing something wrong? like, is there a

    seal i have to break or something?

    it's a gravity feed bottle

    count to about 10 and it should dispense the drop for you,don't shake just hold it upside down till the count

    More specifically, there is a breather tube in the cap. Look in the end for the

    vent hole, this has to be up as you tip the bottle over and it will work much better. If you pop the cap out of the

    bottle you can see what I'm referring to. Your tube may be full of oil so it may take a few time before it clears

    itself.

    I've always had problems with those

    "reducers." Takes forever to get a drop out. More than 10 seconds I might add. I finally gave up with some of the

    products and just pulled the darn thing out and used a dropper.

    Do not like them.

    guys if the liquid come out

    easily you would say easy to OD, if it takes some time you would also complain lol I think the droppers of my Alpha

    7s (scented and unscented) are great ...just 3-5 seconds and 1 drop will come out very slowly and that allow me to

    dab the correct amount before it fall out completely...my only complaint regarding A7 is the scent of the scented

    version.. I hate it !!!..I luckily own the unscented as well which smells much better..If I ever had to wear alpha

    7 without a cover scent I definitely would choose the unscented over the scented

    So the scented isnt to your taste with the A7

    thats handy to know Purple, i was of the opinion from what i had read a few years back that it was sorta like the

    scent of common kitchen herbs or spices ?

    I have had

    the unscented A7 and it works great with my favourite colognes Oh yeah and i never did have any problems with

    obtaining a drop or two as you say . . . . this may be due to the fact that the weather is warm around these parts

    most of the year.... yeah always lots a hot pants on display and mini skirts, i guess i enjoy the fashions lol

    I AM. Out of my mind .... .... ....

    to be more accurate I just

    tried and counted and it took 5 seconds exactly for a drop to start to come out

    update...indeed it was taking 5 seconds for a drop of a7 to come out..actually i was staying in Dubai and its a hot

    and humid country..now i moved to another country where its cold and rainy and now alpha 7 takes around 15 seconds

    lol I guess it has to do with the temperature

    has to do as well with the

    content in the bottle...
    when the bottle is nearly full it will take more time for a drop to come out ..

    and

    from a certain point on they will come out easily the drops ...

    I actually like this "feature"

    of A7.

    For NPA, you'll need the reflex of a ninja to get one drop, usually 2-3 drops came out before I can stop

    it, causing an OD.

    But for A7, I always get one drop exactly! But then, I live in a pretty hot climate.
