I apologize if this has been discussed before...
What are your thoughts on the difference between spraying or applying a sample versus spraying a scent from a large bottle?
I have recently found a huge difference from both M7 and Antaeus. When applied from decants both were very heavy and concentrated yet had an entirely new dimension (both positive) when sprayed from a large bottle which dispersed the fragrance over a much larger surface area.
Is this just me?
If its a win-win situation then dont worry too much about it - if you are.
Personally, the only concerns i have about decanting is the higher possibility of accidental contamination during the process. imo a "concentrated" spray could be like applying from a splash bottle? so i dont think different types of spray(pressure, surface area covered etc) affects the scents or how they "bahave"
As for sizes of bottles concerned and how they affect a scent, i really have no ans myself, but i seriously doubt any mishaps will occur. Hope this helps.
