    Default Best sprayers?

    Which house uses the best sprayers on their bottles?

    I've sprayed many bottles of perfume and cologne made by many different houses and I've noticed some real differences in the quality of the sprayers. I've noticed that Chanel and Dior have fabulous sprayers that give wonderfully maximal output with each pump. While my wife's bottle of D&G Light Blue femme has the most inept, barely there sprayer. Anyone else notice this?

    of what i have, i really enjoy Monsieur Rochas Edc (Vintage 69'), Guerlain Habit Rouge EDC (Vintage 76'), Lancome Sagamore (Vintage), Chanel PM (55') i guess they took special care earlier on how a scent should spray....of the current lot, i dont get that feel..seems they arent interested in it.

    Frederic Malle -- one push of the spray nozzle sends a thick layer of perfume that coats the skin with wonderfully rich fragrance!

    The newest generation of Dior sprayer - found in Dior Homme and now on Fahrenheit Absolute, the Poisonsm etc. is excellent. Very sensitive to pressure and a slow pump gives a stream (for decanting).

    The worst are either the ones found on the Guerlain refill bottles (my Jicky PdT dumps out nearly 1/2ml per spray and the sprayers on the old Chanel masculines like Egoiste, Antaeus, etc. The Creed ones are pretty bad as well.

    You're dead on. Dior Homme is an excellent sprayer: control, volume, everything.

    Creed sprayers are great too...when they work. Unfortunately this is about every two or three sprays. Other than that, there's a lot of wheezing going on.

    Guerlain's are pretty straight forward.

    I also enjoy the sprayers (is their a better term?) that don't rotate: M7, Kouros, VC & A.

    Although Creed is notorious for having a sprayer like a fire hose, I don't doubt that one bit, but..

    OMG, so today my sotd, or morning was Eau Maximum, I am wearing just a t shirt, sprayed some at the neck area, kind of on the shirt too.. wow it felt like a shower. So I sprayed it in the air after, and holy crap, this sprayer is better than Creed's.. but I dunno if I want this much juice coming out at once. This stuff is intense. Regardless.. it was enough to make me have to look for this thread and post, crazy, probably like at least 1ml sprayed out of the thing with 1 squirt!

    I never paid attention to my sprayers' quality (they spray = awesome) but I recall Tauer's ones fell off like a dozen of times thanks to that weird wooden.rubbery supertight cap he uses, which sometimes just grabs the sprayers like a constrictor

    Not that much important for me unless it does malfunction (creed). I think it's the only house I had trouble with sprayers, even much less expensive designer frags don't have issue, so it's weird.. and unacceptable in a way when you pay creed's price. Very unhappy with this, been a while since I bought from them, so I hope they fixed the problem somehow.. They're nice when it works as someone said, but the "when it works" factor shoudn't be lol

    On the other hand, when I think of it, I like Mona di Orio's with the cap as well, Chanel exclusive's comes to mind, Dior collection privé (similar I think), Frédéric Malle's are pretty effective..and I'm sure many more.

    Off topic
    Some that I don't like, more related to the cap on top, are :

    Guerlain l'art et la matière, I don't care at all about the fancyness of that bulb sprayer, but I'd love a normal cap that just close the bottle firmly, not something just standing on top of it.. don't know what's the real marketing strategy here but it's definitely not efficient as it is, since you cannot safely transport.. Again, at guerlain's price, come on... Take the gold off, put it in one montale bottle, add a cap, make it work!! (I'm kidding I actually like the bottle design as it, except cap)

    Other one mentioned above is Andy Tauer's, I got one bottle, lost the cap long ago, don't even remember what it looks like.. what remains is two rubber thingy and it's just pretty ugly sitting there lol

    Second the Roja Doves. The spray is incredible. One shot is all you need. The worst I have is from Puredistance. If you don't spray fast enough, you get a stream of parfum instead of a spray.

    Don't think I've heard anyone say they need MORE sprays from a Creed sprayer... that being said, has anyone else noticed that they start to crap out once you use a decent amount of the juice? My Aventus bottle is getting down to about ~65% and I have to prime the pump every time I use it now. Kinda annoying, and the amount is inconsistent. When it was new, it was perfect. Is there a solution to this or just another quality control problem?

    My bottle of VIW and Tabarome Millesime did the same thing. The only way I could spray it was to hold it level. I think it has something to do with the ball inside of the sprayer hose getting stuck.

    Echoing the Dior Homme responses. I also like Encre Noire, TdH , and MFK's very much. I do not like the A*men sprayers with the plastic covering, nor do I like the sprayer on my 1899 Hemingway very much. It shoots a nice mist but there's no projection. It's almost like a mist machine.

    Creed sprayers are a bit inconsistent. Some mist on a heavy push. Some squirt on a light tap. And there's a little leakage. But overall, I'd say Creed's sprayers are above average.

    Best ones are from Dior, Chanel and Guerlain. YSL has pretty good sprayers too.
    However the worst I've seen is A*Men line then closely Antonio Puig Quorum line! As my bottles of Aqua Quorum and Quorum do not spray, they stream strongly! Seems they just wanna penetrate my skin!!!

    for me Diptyque are reliably good, I don't mind smaller amounts coming out as I'd rather be able to control how much goes on.
    Tam Dao = 1 spray
    Volutes = 3 sprays.

    CB I hate perfume put their scents in cheapo generic bottles but these work great, so there really is no excuse for failure.

    There are a couple of comments on Hermes here who are usually great quality all around, I would warn if you like any of their Hermessence scents don't bother with the travel sizes, they are so flimsy you always get as much juice on your spraying hand as the target.

    Creed sprayers are the WORST in my opinion, not the best. They're very wasteful, putting out a ton of juice, with a lot of it lost in the air.

    The finer the mist, the more juice never reaches your skin because it evaporates in the air. For Creed, that's good for business because the more juice from a bottle gets wasted, the faster someone will empty the bottle. For the person who owns the bottle, it's waste.

    As others have mentioned, Dior has the best sprayers. Period. And not just for the Homme line, but for the Fahrenheit line and others, etc., etc. They are easy to push, can stop on a dime, and provide just the amount that YOU want, rather than what the sprayer wants to give you. Small spritzes, half sprays...all very easy with Dior. Other companies could learn a lot from their sprayers, that's for sure.

    Amouage sprayers crack me up. My bottle of Interlude Man puts out the least juice of any sprayer I've ever used - and thank god for that! In terms of liquid sprayed, 1 Creed spray is probably equal to ten Amouage sprays. I'm not kidding. I'm glad though, because Interlude Man is so strong. Two sprays from that super-weak sprayer is all I can wear! And I LOVE THE STUFF!
