    Default Which Private Blend size do you buy?

    I'm probably going to buy one of the Private Blends soon, but wasn't too sure on which size to get. If we go by in-store prices, the 50ml is $205, and the 100ml is $280. Would you go for the 100ml or the 50ml?

    $75 more for double the juice, worth it or not?

    Definitely go for the bigger size because you can decant the other half and sell it if you choose to.

    When I buy them for others as I am not fond of the line and don't by them for myself, I buy the large one.

    100ml but make sure you sample first. Also ask them for samples after you buy, they are usually generous after you make a purchase.

    100ml, better ml to price benefit

    I thought that was going to be the answer. I've sampled Tuscan Leather and Tobacco Vanille to death. They're probably the front runners at the moment for me from that line, but I need to sample Neroli Portofino again.

    100mls of Tobacco Vanille would last me years and years as any more than 2 sprays makes me feel very nauseous.

    I only bought 50 ml of TV as I have a lot off bottles in rotation and 2 sprays is enough IMO.

    20ml split would last me a year.

    I got a couple bottles that i wouldn't mind splitting. Wouldn't mind Neroli and Italian Cypress.

    Got Azure Lime and Champaca.

    I'm pretty good blagging the 4ml samples from the SA at selfridges.

    I have probably got about 10 total off them with 2 purchase's haha.

    I bought 100ml of TV and 100ml of TL but TL I got for around $180 on ebay, so I only bought it because of the great price. As heavy as TV is it's more versatile than TL, so with TL I doubt I'd need more than 50ml if I was purchasing it for retail.

    Private Blends are pretty strong concentration, so 1-2 sprays is plenty. If you are buying just for yourself, the smaller bottle will last you a very long time. You'd really need to wear the scent on a regular basis (daily) to justify the larger bottle.

    I personally bought Tuscan Leather 50ml bottle, and at first I thought I made a mistake and should have bought the 100ml one - since I *love* the scent - alas, after a while I came to my senses. I already have well over 50 other bottles in my rotation, so even though I love TL I do not wear it every day, and the 50ml bottle will last me a few years, easily.

    I have always purchased the 50ml as I have a lot of frags in rotation so that amount will last me years. Though if you only have a few scents then the 100ml would be the better purchase.
