Technically you could take it home in hand luggage if you were able to split it into 10 small bottles less than 100ml each.

No. It would never get through security. You have to buy it airside at the airport dutyfree.

Julie you could try and sell it cheaper to someone or just leave it to your room cleaner as a gift Vicky

Who do you fly with? Easyjet allows to check in your hand luggage for 5€ in most flights, maybe worth it if you want to keep the bottle!

Put it in your suitcase, in the plastic bag, and well wrapped in clothes, towels etc, and it might get home in one piece. Maybe! Decant it into a plastic bottle to have more chance of surviving.
