    What do you mean by "it dumps out nearly half a ML per spray"? Does it spray too much, or is there some problem?

    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.

    Agree. Some are really nice, but I have one or two that misfire and make a grunting sound every 2nd or 3rd spray. Very annoying.

    Love the control with Dior Homme and Diptyque has a great sprayer for a perfect mist cloud.

    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.

    Agree Chanel and Dior generally best. Guerlain as variable as the bottle designs - LIDG, good - GH, phut!

    In terms of quality I think Heeley. Creeds just spray way too much for me.

    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!!!
    My all time favorite:

    Dior Fahrenheit

    I don't like Dior's sprayers. If you don't push hard enough it doesn't create a mist but just ejaculates a splash of juice.

    Dior, definitely.

    Frederic Malle, both big bottles and smaller samples. Also Chanel and YSL. I agree with previous poster re Quorum's thin stream. Also Creed is too much and too misty for me.

    I really like the blast that Kouros gives also Quorums mist is pretty decent to me. Another one that doesn't seemed to be mention here is D&G the one for men I also don't mind Hugo Boss. Nearly all have good projection.

    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.

    Dior's have the best control
    Creed's are annoying but the mist thing is nice

    My favorite though are the Frederic Malles. Just a nice heafty, perfectly atomized spray.

    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!
