As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end! So, when you enjoy the last few sprays of your favourite fragrance, what do you do with your empty bottle? Instead of letting it gather dust on your dressing table or sending it to a landfill with your household waste, you can now bring it back in-store and we’ll recycle it for you, for free!

Tree Planting with Veritree
As part of our bottle recycling service, we have partnered with Veritree, working towards a sustainable future by restoring critical landscapes which help the planet to thrive.
Veritree connects us with tree-planting projects that help restore our planet. They sequester carbon, restore ecosystems and create local jobs. Their goal is to drive change by creating a long-lasting impact that is good for the planet, biodiversity, and our communities.
At The Perfume Shop, we pledge to plant a tree for every perfume bottle a customer brings back to be recycled with us, as well as other activities throughout the year. So don’t throw away that empty perfume bottle! Recycle it with us in-store and help change lives for the better.
Benefits of Recycling
Recycling is crucial to the future health of our planet. From recycling household waste to empty beauty products, here are just a few reasons why improving your recycling habits can make a big difference:
– Reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills
– Helps to conserve natural resources such as wood, metal and sand
– Reduce carbon emissions from sourcing and processing new materials
– Save energy as less energy is used to make products from recycled materials than new materials
– Protect ecosystems and reduces disruption to wildlife
Reuse or Refill
As well as recycling your empty perfume bottles, you can also give them a new lease of life by reusing them or buying a refillable bottle.
Refillable scents are a great way to eliminate unnecessary waste, plus you will not have to get rid of a beautiful flacon from your dressing table! At The Perfume Shop, we offer a great range of his and her scents that are available in refillable options including the classic Dior Sauvage and the contemporary Code by Armani. If a floral fragrance is more your thing then the addictively sensual notes of Fame from Paco Rabanne has got your name written all over it!
OUR PLEDGE TO THE PLANET
We’re as passionate about minimising our impact on the planet as we are about perfume. So over the last few years, we’ve been working hard to make changes that matter, from consciously reducing our carbon footprint to launching 100% recyclable, vegan and cruelty-free own-brand collections.

Aside from the scent itself, one of the best things about perfume is the beautiful bottle it comes in. So, when it runs out, instead of throwing away the bottle, why not try upcycling it into something new?
