Interesting survey Quarry! I hope our voices will be heard.
1) If you like a fragrance, how important is it to you that it be presented in a custom-designed bottle?
(a) Very important, (b) Somewhat important, (c) Matters little
2) If you knew that custom bottles added substantial cost to your fragrance or impaired the number/variety of fragrances a company could release to market, would you rather a perfume house choose less-expensive containers?
Yes, unless they are very unattractive bottles. Appearances also count.
3) Would you consider buying a high-end fragrance in a laboratory-style, cobalt-blue bottle as long as an attractive label made it apparent that it contained a quality fragrance?
3b) If you answered "no" to question #3 and you knew that your fragrance would have greater stability/longevity/fidelity when stored in an opaque, blue bottle, would you change your answer?
Yes, but only if it would have a distinct shape so that it's different from other bottles. I'd prefer a different colour though, I store all my fragrances in the dark anyway.
4) For pure perfume (as opposed to edt, edp, cologne), do you prefer a spray, a dabber, or a reducer to apply this concentrated form of scent?
[A dabber being a wand kept in the bottle and attached to the cap that, when pulled out, applies a drop of perfume when you touch it to your skin. A reducer being a small opening that allows you to invert a bottle to receive a drop of perfume on your fingertip which you then touch to your skin.]
5) Have you ever used a reducer or bottle or mini with a small opening that requires fingertip application?
5b) If yes, do you have an opinion about this manner of application?
Can be unpractical when you wish to give it a full wearing, but not bad at all for testing the scent on your skin.
