Empty glass vials: which ones to pick?

    Empty glass vials: which ones to pick?

    I'd like to buy empty glass vials online in order to make my own samples, and I finally found an ebay seller that ships to Canada for free. Does anyone have experience with the vials pictured below? I was wondering if they're as good for perfume samples as the more common type of vials people here tend to buy (these).

     

     

     

     

     

    Thanks!

    Those are fine for holding juice. I don't think you'll be able to spray into those little openings though. You might consider 1/2 dram bottles with screw tops. I think one co is Best Bottles. Also, Sunburst bottles.

    How do you plan on decanting the fragrance? The narrow opening on those vials can be quite a pain if you're spray decanting.

    You will need syringe and needle to decant into those vials. I find these narrow vials useful for dabbing.

    They're fine. Make sure you buy some funnels.

    Funnels are fine but they must be cleaned with each use with rubbing alcohol.

    They look OK.

    Accessories for Fragrance is very good. You could check it out for options. They don't ship free though.

     

    As for the type of vials, it depends what you want to put in them. You can use the vials that you have pictured for any type of fragrance but you can also get little atomisers, which I much prefer for all Cologne/EDT/EDP. Extrait/Parfum/Oil would generally be better in your non spray type.

     

    Good luck!

    Those look pretty good. Use a syringe and all will be good.

    I went through about 200 of those and was able to spray into them just fine.
