    Default best way to use fragrance's without a sprayer?

    Hi i have bought a collection of 10ml mini's from the dior house, the tops just come off there is no sprayer. Just wondering how is the best way to apply these? As i hear dab ons can be over applied easily? Any tips or guidelines would be great. Thanks peeps

    Just be prudent with the amount dabbing on.

    If the tops come off, just use a pipet to transfer to an atomizer with a sprayer (or if you're lucky, if you buy some 10ml atomizers the tops of those might just screw right on top of the 10ml bottles you already have). I'm not a fan of splashing fragrances on, I find it never works out well and especially if you're using these to sample which ones you may actually purchase a full bottle of, you're not going to be able to get an accurate assessment of the fragrance dabbing it on

    Accessories for fragrances.com sells 10ml atomizers, as well as other sizes. They include a pipette and funnel with orders.

    Its not that bad to dab actually, if the fragrance is very strong. But for a light one, them you will apply A LOT and will not get that much projection as the same quantity applied with an sprayer

    Well even so, if the fragrance is strong, you may buy a full bottle and realize it's too strong when spraying (I know from reading posts that some people are turned off by fragrances that have too much sillage or projection). I just think it's best to always apply samples in the same way you would apply them if you actually owned the bottle so you can get the most accurate sense of whether or not this is something you would be interested in buying. I don't even bother smelling the sample strips in magazines anymore because they generally will smell nothing like when sprayed on
