The first 'atomiser nozzle' was invented in 1887 by Dr Thomas DeVilbiss, who used it to administer medicine to the back of his patients throats. The idea was a success, and he started manufacturing atomiser nozzles for other uses, with the first mention of a perfume atomiser being recorded around 1890 in France. Much rarer than the perfume, or scent, bottle, a silver atomiser makes an ideal dressing table accessory, with good condition early examples being highly sought after.
