Hi moxie101! I like your name; Moxie is my favorite soda. Anyway, you might find these threads useful:best way to apply from 1 ml sample vials?
andBest way to apply vials?
If I plan on using up the entire sample in a couple of wearing within a short period of time, I just tip the vial over against my skin (chest, forearms) and rub it around, leaving trails of juice where the vial passes over my skin. Then I rub my forearms together lightly and wrists across my chest to spread it around. Yes, there's probably some contamination of the vial, but again I'm going to use the stuff up quickly.
Otherwise, I use the cocktail straw method; or if the sample is 2 ml or more, I transfer it to a sprayer. But I've just had to place another order with the wonderful Sally at Accessories of Fragrance for more atomizers, and I really should cut back on the number of sprayers I go thru!
