What size and why

    What size and why

    How large a bottle do you usually buy? I was going through my bottles and noticed mostly 3.4 and 2.5 with one 4.2 and it's not even my favorite at all. Lol

    So what is/are the determining factor(s) for you? I guess the only reason I got the 4.2 was because it was the better bang for my buck, but in the end, I kind of wish I'd just used the extra money to sample something new.

    I guess it would depend on if it were something I knew I was going to purchase again due to it being a favorite. Then it would make sense to go even to a 6.7oz if available...

    Depends.  If it it's a versatile fragrance I will use often (or one with weak projection/longevity that takes more sprays to apply) I would wan't a bigger bottle.

     

    But I never buy a bottle bigger than 4.2 oz.

    100ml-200ml. Will only buy 75ml or 50ml if it's to maintain an existing line in my collection of scents that started out as exclusively 100ml.

    Wow, wonder if I'll ever get that bad. I usually don't collect one thing long enough to get to such a degree. I find me 5-10 items that suit me and then move on to the next hobby...

    ussually purchase 1.7 ounces. I like to wear a different one. Have many 3.4 ounces as well.

     

    One of the major reasons is being that I can own more fragrances and some I know I wont wear alot.

    The largest bottle I have is 4.25 oz., the smallest is 1 oz. I enjoy having a wider variety of fragrances and rotate quite heavily. The 4.25 oz. offerings I have were actually the smallest size offered and the 1 oz. bottles I have were the largest offered. I usually stick with 1.7, 2.5 and 3.4 oz. bottles depending on what it is and how often I can see myself wearing it.

    The majority are either in 50ml and 100ml. So I buy the 50ml and contemplate a backup.

    I wish they offered bottles in 150ml or even 200ml.

    This way you wouldn't have to worry about discontinuations and reformulations or keeping track of backups.

    If the price is logically and enough cheap relative to smaller bottle sizes why not buy the 200ml one?! This way I'm safe from all sorts of reformulaton, discontinuation and even price jump ups! This goes to my favorites, but regular scents may go with 100ml better!!!

    True, but if i can get lets say 3 different scents for the price of one 3.4 oz why not? lol

     

    3x the pleasure. 

     

     

    Although stuff like Creed and Tom Fords  should be purchased in the bigger sizes do to cost of per mil.

    Wise saying bro, if I could buy 2 other scents in the class and level of the first one with paying just the amount of one 100ml bottle then I wouldn't hesitate!!! But here in my country this is not going to happen unfortunately!
    Although I'm still on my word to have large and even multiple largest bottles of my top 5 scents!!!

    Usually 100 ml or 3.3, 4.2 oz and above. When I truly like a fragrance and it's going to have some frequent application as SOTD, bottles sizes of 100 ml and above are cheaper or at least better return on investment in the long run. Plus larger sized bottles are also an advantage as backups of/for stocking up on a certain fragrance.

    Exactly. I think this is how I will approach my future purchases.
