In honor of Earth Day, here's a way to make your beauty routine a little easier on the environment. This past February, Thierry Mugler took its Source fragrance fountain nationwide so that customers can refill their ANGEL Eau de Parfum or ALIEN Eau de Parfum right at department store beauty counters.
It not only allows Mugler fans to reuse the brand's intricate bottles, but it also saves money since the perfume refill costs less than buying a whole new bottle. The fragrance fountain looks futuristic, but it's based on a very retro idea. There's a century-old tradition of refilling perfume bottles in-store, instead of constantly buying new bottles.
Want to try it out? Find the Source fragrance fountain at Bloomingdale's in Tysons Corner Center, and this way, you can really use your engraved bottle over and over and over again.
