    Default Where to get miniature bottles

    Hi, I'm new to the BN forum and was wondering where people get hold of miniature bottles? I've seen quite a few 4ml bottles of Tom Ford fragrances and sometimes 10-12ml travel sizes of Serge Lutens on ebay, and a while ago I managed to get hold of a travel size of Bond No 9 Andy Warhol Silver Factory but I have only ever seen these on ebay.

    Is it possible to get them from shops or elsewhere online? I live in the UK and my Paypal account is often temperamental so getting things from the US can be a pain, and I'm quite a way from London and Leeds sadly doesn't have lots of places to get perfume.

    Hmmm. Somebody from the other side of the Atlantic will have to speak up.
    There is this site http://www.parfumflacons.com/ for designer fragrances.
    Niche minis are a little trickier.
    In a world where 6 million people are added each month, every landscape matters.

    I'm pretty sure they get them from those gift packs and such (which are obviously everywhere these days what with Christmas being just round the corner). I bought a miniature 12.5ml bottle of Terre d'Hermes on eBay, and then I was walking in Debenhams and saw a gift box with the same sized mini bottle (and I think there was also the 50ml EDT and shower gel with it too).

    It's kinda cheeky of them to sell off these little things, but what can ya do. I'm pretty sure you can't buy them separately in any stores.

    Wow, that site is pretty awful. The layout is dire.

    Hey I used to live in Leeds. And you're right about that part. Going online is probably your best bet. Here I'm spoiled for choice, just last week I bought 3 minis 5-8 ml (a Lalique, an Etiene Aigner and a Nina Ricci) for $16, all from a local discounter. :P

    Superdrug often has minis of mainstream stuff. Otherwise, luck and ebay is my port of call. If you just want to test frags to see if you like them, then the small spray samples are plentiful on ebay as well or you can get small decants from a variety of sources. I must admit to having a soft spot for mini bottles. I tend to keep my proper stuff hidden away in the dark, so love to display the minis.

    You can get any of the bond scents at the actual bond store in $50 travel/purse sprays.
