    Default can you buy unused sample tester vials?

    After seeing a salesperson at sephora today make her own sample tester vial of a cologne simply by spraying into the vial, I was thinking can't I do this myself and thus have small diposable containers of cologne that I can carry with me anywhere?

    So where can I find these brand new unused empty sample tester vials?

    i found these on ebay, are they the kind that you can spray?

    I buy my spray vials from AccessoriesforFragrances.com. They also have an eBay store. They are reliable.

    Edit:

    The one in your photo looks like it just has a dabber, no spray.

    I know there are a few different sources (and various threads on these sources), but I've been happy with these from LotionCrafter. (More sizes, same store.)

    is 2.5ml enough for 4-6 sprays? or how many sprays do you usually get from them?

    Yes, those are the ones. They are the same size as the ones from Sephora. I filled one with water just now to test it, and I got 25 sprays out of it!

    That's with it filled. Most of the time when you get samples, they will not be 2.5ml-- more like 1.5ml, maybe 2ml if you're lucky. Some are even 1ml., I've noticed.
    But basically you get 1 spray per 0.1ml.

    I also like to buy the 5ml size, but not for samples-- I decant my everyday fragrances into them and store the full bottles in the fridge. The 5ml sprayers are easy to refill-- the spray mechanism part screws onto the base. With the 2.5ml container, the sprayer snaps in place; harder to refill.
