    Buy a good spritzer and spray it normally!

    Or, you could decant it into a travel atomizer.

    If I don't have an atomizer to devote to that particular fragrance, I caaaarefully spill a few drops into my palm and quickly rub my neck and arms.

    Obi-Wan: Did I say anything?
    Anakin: He's trying.
    Obi-Wan: I didn't say anything!

    A good source for atomisers is:

    They're based in the US but ship to the UK. Unfortunately I haven't yet found a comparable UK-based source.

    I can't stand splash bottles. I think you never get the right impression of a fragrance when you have to smear it on the skin (ok, potent parfums are an exception), so I always decant it, portion by portion, into a small sprayer.

    True - I try and decant all splash perfumes . ( Though I like dabbing- I will decant into a small screw top bottle to avoid comtaminating parfum bottles and contents )
