I have; unsuccessfully, attempted to find a thread that addresses the entire process of decanting fragrances.
I would like to decant spray bottles (my collection of fragrances) into atomizers mainly for travel purposes but most importantly in order to carry an atomizer (in my pocket) so I may freshen/reapply the fragrance throughout the day.
I am a neophyte and need your help with the following:
Can someone provide a detailed outline of the decanting process--From buying the appropriate supplies (vial/atomizer—size, material; funnels, pipettes, etc) to the detailed steps and instructions to decant spray bottles into atomizers.
A few questions:
1) Which material is better: glass or plastic?---is one or the other more prone to leak? If I am carrying the atomizer in my pocket, is plastic a better option?
2) What size atomizers should I purchase so it may comfortably fit in my pocket, but it contains enough fragrance to spray multiple times throughout the day?
3) Which fragrance/bottle supplier is the best for people who do NOT order in bulk but do not want to compromise quality (I'll probably buy only two dozen atomizers so price is NOT really an issue –I do not care if I pay extra if I get quality atomizers that do not leak)?
There are numerous 'fragrance supplies' websites I have come across. Namely; madinaonline.com, pilotvials.com, snowdriftfarm.com accessoriesforfragrances.com, lotioncrafter.com, specialtybottle.com, etc. Which is the best?
4) Do I need a funnel? Plastic or stainless steel? What about pipettes?
Thank you in advance for your help!
