Like Barry, all of my Penhaligon's colognes come in atomizer bottles. The collection is large and, hopefully, growing. Unbelievable quality. Best, John.

RJ: I saw a good selection of all Proraso products last weekenend at the wonderful CO Bigelow Chemists, 414 6th Avenue (Greenwich Village), NYC. Try their signature Witch Hazel Skin Toner (for after the shave) while you're there, as well. Great stuff! Best, John.
