Could you use isopropyl/rubbing alcohol in place of the vodka?

to get a perfume bottle you could just buy a real cheap perfume, empty it, clean it and then use that for it.

Hmm, I tend to pick up perfume bottles in various charity stores and home stores. A craft store may stock them, however if you're really struggling to find one then try ebay.
