    Yes, I do. Not always, but on a regular basis. I live in a year-round hot climate and work outdoors some of the time, so many frags don't last all day on me.

    I keep Douro, Concentre d'Orange Verte with me at work. I apply first thing when I get in and then a few hours later.

    Ill decant into a 5ml atomizer if I am wearing something I know will evaporate 3 or 4 hours later and I will not be home for another 6 hours.

    I always carry a sample/vial with me, if not a whole bottle for a "freshen up" particularly if i'm oging straight for dinner after work.

    Two questions though in relation to those refillable atomisers (per the youtube clip above):

    1. How do you clean the vial between fills - or is it a case of needing one per fragrance?
    2. If you went into a department store and filled one up (say 2ml-4ml) - would a shop assistant have grounds to hold that against you? Where is the line drawn between "sampling" and "theft"?

    1- I had a very fancy Tom Ford Atomizer that had Neroli Portofino or something in it. I tried to rid it of any perfume remnants but couldn't. I let it soak in boiling water for days, then washed it with high pressure washer for many days. I then let it soak in soap water. Still. The vial almost became odorless but the sprayer still had plenty of perfume smell in it.
    I now label each atomizer with the perfume and re-use it.

    2- LOL I think you are allowed to spray on yourself legally but are not allowed to carry any out with you.
    As a consumer, you could argue that you prefer to take with you what you would have sprayed in the store. The 1 to 2 ml for example.
    The business sees it as a stealing because they dont want you to enjoy it too much for free.

    Thanks Hedonist.

    I think you're right in terms of the atomisers - it is the spray nozzle that causes the issue of removing the scent. I really don't want to cross-contaminate.

    Yeah you're probably right on the "sampling" point too. I watched the youtube video early in this thread without sound, and the guy seemed to be doing it instore, whilst that's a great way to get a sample, i'd be worried about being pulled aside for effectively stealing. No idea how they'd judge it to be honest.

    I pretty much always do. For a start, I'm addicted to the opening salvo from Caron's pour un homme and very often apply during the day to re-experience that astonishing, nuclear-lavender opening.

    I've been having a bit of atomiser grief of late, though. I took some 3rd Man with me for a couple of days away, didn't use it till the second day and - I swear - the top notes had disappeared completely: most disappointing. I've had no problems with this frag in this atomiser over the course of a day - but it seems as though anything beyond immediate use just doesn't work.

    I tried one atomiser with a kind of hidden, soft plastic funnel that you spray the frag into but I found that PuH acquired a repellent, skanky top note within a couple of hours - that one went straight in the trash.

    I do lug the whole bottle very often (I was going to say 'unless I'm wearing something like Ambre Sultan' - then I realised that I've even 'topped up' with this monster during the day) particularly if it's a 'weak-ass' frag like Eau Sauvage (which I ditched in the end as just being too damn ephemeral for my brutish tastes...).

    Aramis is a good frag to wear for sneaky top-ups in pretty much every branch of Boots.

    LDDM appeals to me because it - and so far it alone - strikes me as a frag that I would genuinely never feel the need to re-apply (sadly, so far at least, I quite often feel the need to de-apply it instead).

    The guy in that video puts about 3-4ml tops in that bottle and then says: 'There you go: a couple of weeks worth of scent'

    Weeks? Holy crap! For me, about half a morning worth.

    I always bring by bottle of my SOTD to work everyday. I might need to reapply mid-day if necessary...often times always actually. =)

    I do not carry anything with me, however, I generally go home for my "lunch" break and tend to refresh my fragrance when I leave the house to head back to work.

    Nothing lasts well on my skin so I purchased a bunch of small atomizers from accessoriesforfragrances.com and have one for every fragrance I have. Rather than apply a lot at the start of the day (which I know will not last) I now apply small amounts throughout the day.

    I actually feel the need to re-apply that frag on a fairly regular basis. Probably every other day or so, when it finally wears off.

    I think it all depends on my scent of the day. Yesterday I wore Amouage Opus 1. I certainly didn't need a top up. Now, if I wear something like 28 La Pausa, I'm gonna need to recharge later in the day.
