    Question Puredistance M - Spray or Dab?

    I'm getting a dab sample of Puredistance M very soon.
    Should I decant it into an atomizer?

    The thing is, this is an extrait, so will a tiny drop be sufficient or does this fragrance need to be sprayed?

    I want to experience the fragrance in the best possible way.

    Normally, I prefer sprays and despise dab samples, but the concentration is giving me doubts.

    This one is strong enough from a dab and does not need to be decanted into a atomizer. Before I got a split of this I just had a 1ml sample which lasted me two months with many wearings. I just applied a dab to my wrists and I was good for many hours.

    Thank You Jack Hunter, I really appreciate it.

    I agree with mr hunter. i actually think it works better dabbed or rolled.

    Dab is OK. Spray gets the full bouquet.

    I pour mine into my hand and lick it like a cat and start applying it to my body as if I'm cleaning myself like that very same cat. It's the proven method with this fragrance. Google it.

    My application method involves a torch lighter, rusty pail, hypodermic needle, VHS copy of Big Trouble in Little China, and a Burmese feline that is approximately 15-18 months old.

    I would guess that would be true with any sample.

    I spray. But then again I bought the 17.5 ml sample which comes in a nice aluminium spray.

    In spite of the "Spray In Face" method I demo above, I actually decanted Puredistance M into a rollon. I prefer the more gradual evolution of the top notes that I get from rolling it on (or dabbing would have the same effect). There are some really nice florals in the beginning that stick around longer this way, and the Wall of Moss is more of a gentle swell than a clobbering.

    It's a shame they sell this as a spray.
    The sprayer seems to be really good in your video, which is a disadvantage because of the concentration.

    You know what I really like about your video?
    You spray yourself 2 times in the face and you act like nothing happened.
    You start checking out the aluminium sprayer as if it is normal to spray an extrait in your face.
    I love that video.

    I also prefer to spray. Puredistance M is one of the better releases of the last few years, IMO. I like the fact that it is rich and long lasting. Many (if not most) of today's fragrances lack reasonable staying power.

    I also spray with the 17.5ml tube however it's powerful stuff,
    the roll-on idea sounds really good, cause 2 sprays can be really loud sometimes
    this fragrance is great, one of the best purchase I've made so far


    I thought the guy in the video was about to spray some puredistance m in his mouth really ahaha

    Spraying might have more appeal if the sprayer weren't so damn powerful.

    Both... sometimes one spray to the body and a couple dabs.

    I actually got the black bottle in a split and the spray from that is just perfect in been not to much or to little. Though not many people unless they have money to burn are going to be purchasing the 100ml bottle.
