    I teach you the act of recanting. Decants are something to be surpassed by recanting.

    Recanting is when you take 20 samples and pour them all into a bigger bottle. Very useful for complimentary promotions like Exceptional Because You Are.

    We've evolved from buying full bottles to decanting. And now to recanting.

    For such a fragrance as this, I don't see why not over time.

    Did that exact thing - with that exact fragrance - into a 5ml atomizer. Just in case I ever want to wear it...

    I did it with Spicebomb. Samples were everywhere at the time. I still have the decant so was a good move for me because I am still not compelled to go FB on it.

    I have mini splashes of Declaration and Relax by Davidoff with very little in them..

    I might give this a try and mix both..

    With the samples you collected what amount do you think you were able to accumulate?

    I do this but with a whole bunch of samples of different fragrances after they've accumulated in my stash-box.

    I name them after letters of the alphabet and offer them to friends.

    I would venture to guess somewhere between 5-10ml. I have three cities in the territory that I cover that have at least one Sephora so I'll stop into a couple soon and fill 'er back up if it is still one of their offerings (stopped by one a few days ago and don't recall seeing it).

    I have bought around 25 2.5 ml samples of Aventus on Ebay for around 40 dollars an ounce, and i just pour them into a larger bottle. First i buy one from these sellers, and see if it's a very pineapple batch. I found one that had as much pineapple top as the ZO1 batch. That has been my Aventus strategy lately.

    Too funny, i also put my Exceptional... into a 5ml atomizer. Those samples are useless to me in a dab vial.

    Did the same with Aventus too. Not too enamored with the longetivity of the batch I got but I got about an oz worth for not much. Good results and less risk.
