    Default How to put perfume into tiny bottles?

    Someone recommended that I put my Ciara into a little bottle and dab it on. So I have this adorable mini perfume bottle that I tried spritzing into from my big bottle. But a lot of my perfume was dripping all over the place and only a small amount got into the little bottle! Is there an easier way to do this?

    You might try the same thing, only use a funnel...if you can find a small enough funnel.

    You could make a tiny funnel from aluminium foil.

    (I think, I've never tried with a really tiny bottle!)

    I spritz from all my bottles into sample vials. The trick is to let your finger extend over the the sprayer top and lightly hold the decant bottle directly over the spray hole, touching the spray head, while pressing it up against your fingertip. That way, when you spritz, the decant bottle is stable and will move up and down in it's place (directly in front of a still solid stream of perfume.)

    Great tip, Shycat! I've been contemplating how to spray my perfume into tiny sample vials but have been too afraid to try at risk of wasting the juice. Now, I think I'll give it a whirl...thanks so much!

    Wax paper works well for this...

    Thanks a lot for the suggestions. Last Christmas, I bought some little perfume bottles for my mother-in-law which came with their own little funnels. I now wish I had gotten myself one just for the funnel. Real small funnels.

    tiny funnels are available from the Container Store

    link to funnels at container store

    There is an even smaller size than the ones listed here. You could try calling to see if they have it (it retails for 59 cents in stores).

    Using larger atomizer decant bottles, I haven't had much issue with spillage because I use Shycat's technique and the mouth of the decant bottles is big enough. If you are decanting from a liquid (not atomized), you could also try using a chemistry pipette.

    I just bought one for myself at the store that I manage. It is a 3-piece silver set: atomizer, mirror/compact, and funnel. I haven't used it yet, but I know it will come in handy.

    Thanks for the ideas. I will try to find a funnel small enough and if I can't, I will make my own. The wax paper idea sounds good because it is a nice smooth surface.
