    Default How do you apply Eau D'Orange Verte without a sprayer?

    I was just gifted with my first Hermes: Eau D'Orange Verte! I am very pleased with the smell, just one question: How do I apply this? It does not have a sprayer or anything. HELP!

    well Jonny, since the boys are silent on this issue

    I tip bottles juice from splash bottles carefully on my forearm or wrist and let a few drops or more spill out- then rub onto my other arm to distribute. Eaux are generally meant to apply liberally because they are meant for refreshment and a pick- me up, not to last forever.

    Enjoy your gorgeous scent!

    Splash it on.
    For good, anatomic reasons, scent fosters memory more readily than any other sense.

    Break with pliers the sprayer from the bottle and pour the contents into a refillable bottle!

    I would advise you buying an atomizer, I personally do not enjoy splashing it.

    Just put a little on your hand and dab it on

    buy a small atomizer and fill it, spray usually works better.

    This. It is the kind of fragrance that should be applied liberally, IMO. Great stuff, btw.

    Heavily. Great scent but never lasts on me. I think it would be impossible to overdo.
    WANTED (full or partial bottles)
    Divine eau Divine (refillable)

    Pour a bit into one of your palms, then re-distribute equally into both palms. Splash/pat/rub onto yourself. Repeat as desired. Eau d'Orange Verte is terrific in liberal doses, and very refreshing applied this way. Personally for fragrances of this type, I find that spraying a sufficient dose results in a cloud around one's head that can be terrifically irritating to the nostrils and eyes - like being right underneath a crop duster! Try the old-fashioned "cologne bath" method I've just described. I think you'll enjoy it.

    I pour mine into an atomizer and make sure to spray some on my shirt so it lasts longer.
