    Default What is the shipping weight of a 100ml(3.4oz) bottle of cologne ?

    It's back to mexico again....

    I usually bring back a few bottles. However this time I am only bringing one suitcase. I figure I can carry 2 100ml bottles in 1 quart size bag/carry on. Then check 2 *maybe a 3rd.

    I think I only have a 4lb weight allowance left in my checked bag. Will that be plenty of weight for 3 bottles ?

    I would like to bring back :

    Dior Homme Intense

    Farenheit Absolute

    Guerlain Vetiver / Female version

    Aqua De Sandalo - Adolfo Dominquez

    You have 4 bottles listed there, thatmakescents but I see what you are doing ..2 in the LAG bag, 2 in checked baggage. When I receive a 100 ml bottle in the mail- the weight is shown as 2 lbs.
    I would be inclined to say you will be okay .However, it depends on how strict your airlines is with their weight limit ,per bag, per person.
    Most airlines shut an eye if you are one or two pounds over the limit.

    it's probably around 10oz a bottle, or that's what it is from my experience

    Most of the weight of a 100 ml fragrance is in the bottle so it mostly depends on the bottle (and the other packaging). Rive Gauche, which comes in an aluminum can, is only a few ounces. 100 ml of fragrance by itself weighs only about 79 grams or about 2.79 ounces. Fragrances bottles are deliberately made heavy so you will think you are buying something substantial. Two pounds, however, would be a really heavy bottle so my guess the "shipping weight" of a 100 ml is pegged at two pounds just for the purposes of calculating shipping charges, not at what the fragrance actually weighs.

    Thank you for your responses.

    I also have the option to ship some bottles back from San Diego but I'd rather take them with me.
