What I've been able to glean from the above link is that there are a couple of ways to go for mini's or sample vials in terms of application methods:
- You can put the fluid in a small atomizer. (You can get these at Sally's Accessories for Fragrances online or other places.)
- Some people will siphon out the fluid with a mini-straw/coffee stirrer by placing it into the vial (or mini) and putting your finger over the open end of the stirrer and thereby hold the pressure. (I'm sure there's a specific scientific term for this, I just don't remember what that term is!) Then you would apply the juice to your skin by lifting your finger and releasing a bit of the liquid.
I'm sure there are other ways to apply mini-juice too. I didn't know about the coffee-stirrer/mini-straw/cocktail straw method until now, and think that's brilliant. MadScientist came up with that one, if I have that right. Also, in a recent thread Hoos mentions using cotton swabs as applicators, too.
Now in terms of projection or longevity, that is another question. I'm sure there are lots of opinions on whether spraying or dabbing (or dispensing through the mini straw method) allows for better longevity, sillage, and projection. You might want to search about that
issue on its own--I think it is has been much discussed before and I can only offer my personal opinion. (I like spraying.)
