    Yeah, I get that. But I thought hedonist meant there's a way to do it with a sprayer attached.

    Interesting. How does this work? I've seen the "syringe method" but nothing with pipettes.

    The website indicates you can use the sample credit on anything except more samples (e.g. the fancy bottles). Anyone know if that's the case? I'd be more inclined to get a sample set if that's true.

    If they're EDTs (as posted in the OP) maybe these bottles are designed to hold more to give more value/price. Not that Creed is into being economical, just a guess.
