    Default How many sprays in 1ml?

    Ultra quick question here : I finally stumbled onto the perfumedcourt website, and I will be most likely ordering some samples of scents from Montale this weekend. My question is, how many sprays can you get out of 1ml? Isn't 1 good spray about an ml? I want to order some 8ml decants of the Montale line to give them a proper judging but not if 8 sprays will cost me 30 bucks. Or (as I am already thinking) am I way off the mark here?

    Somewhere between 4 and 8 sprays to a milliliter, depending on the sprayer. Think about a standard size 1.5mL sample sprayer, I normally get about 3 days of full wearing out of it (3*4 sprays). So 12 sprays to 1.5 = 8 sprays to 1.

    Hope that helps.

    I get between 8 and 12 sprays out of a mL depending on the atomiser.

    Hahha yes and no. Now that I know an 8ml decant would last me a month straight of wearing it (I only ever really use 2-3 sprays of any scent at a time) I am going to spend way too much on Montale decants this weekend. Black Aoud, Blue Amber and Red Vetiver here I come!

    I filled some 1ml vials once and got ten or twelve shots into each depending on the sprayer from which the juice came.

    When I did some measurements I typcally got six sprays to the millitre, but got 4 sprays to the ml from many of the older Hugo Boss bottles, and 8 from those bottles that sprayed more lightly than average.

    The range from the posts so far is 4 to 12 sprays depending on the bottle/decant spray mechanism, assuming full strokes of the sprayer+. I personally have used both full and partial sprays, depending on the location or intensity of the frag. That varies the amount per spray (full) average. Spraying a full spray from a Creed bottle seem to expend more juice per spray than most other house bottles do.

    In Luca Turin's book "Perfumes: The Guide" on page 44, the first paragraph under the question "Do fragrances cause allergic reactions?" expresses his opinion that 0.5 ml is equivalent to about 3 sprays. So that would be 6 sprays for each milliliter. But, as kbe has pointed out above, it really depends on the unique characteristics of each container and spray mechanism.
