    Default How many shots would a "mini" be good for?

    I can't really travel with my Midnight in Paris EDP because of the size. I suppose I could get some sort of sample thing to spray some into, but I was also pondering getting the EdT and I saw they have these little EdT minis that hold 4.5ml. The little bottle looks cute. But I wonder how many sprays that is, really.

    I've found Travalo atomisers to be the easiest to fill as it just slots over the nozzle if you remove your bottle sprayer and then just pump it. Nordstroms do cheaper ones for $5 but they are messy to fill.

    I have those from Travalo too. Fuss-free and easy to use. Each refill can last you approx. 45 sprays
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt

    It's about 10 to 12 sprays per ml for most scent bottles, and 8 to 10 sprays per ml for bottles with big sprayers (like Creed and some of the older Boss bottles).

    Though some of the small 30ml bottles can take about 15 sprays to put out a ml.

    Buying cheap glass atomisers that take 8 or 10mls is usually the best way to go.

    I hadn't seen those Travalo things. I'm gonna go that route. Then I can take what I really want (which is my MiP EdP). Does the cap always come off on any bottle? That MiP bottle is kinda funky.

    Yes, the cap comes off any spray bottle. Well, all the bottles i've got anyway.
