    Default best way to apply fragrance from samples e.g. creed samples

    Got some samples from creed the aventus is easy to apply as you can use the end to just dab on the skin and plenty comes on it, others such as himilaya and GIT have the skinny stem like sample where hardly anything comes on it? Just wondering how to apply without over applying aswell, prob a silly question but i am still a newbie

    I never dab any samples. I have a few small atomizers that I purchased and spray on the samples. It gives me a better idea of what the fragrance will really smell like if I decide to purchase.

    Me too. Fragrances often smell different when dabbed on vs. sprayed.

    I agree with the peeps above, I always transfer any Creed samples to small spray atomisers.

    Baggsy, I don't use the plastic stems to apply. I hold the open end of the vial to my wrist and sort of draw a little liquid line of juice for an inch or so. Then I dab with the other wrist, careful not to inadvertently crush any molecules.

    With Creeds - definitely transfer to a spray sample bottle . You get a much better idea of the scents . It's worth doing .
