    Simply because the larger he size, better is the price per ml.

    This and I found a really good deal on two 200ml bottles of Eau Sauvage 100% Glaçon last year. I now have three 200ml bottles of Eau Sauvage.

    Um... Very interesting.
    So those houses won't consider making big bottles unless they are very confident with the sale, cos' there's gotta be sufficient consumers on the scale.

    I would never buy 200ml and above since I'll probability get bored of the fragrance along the way. I've one had a 200ml bottle of CKOne and cannot get myself to continue using it after finishing half of it

    The biggest one I own is LaP Cote d'Amour 250ml. It is light and requires frequent/heavier application, so 250 is not so much if you take that into consideration.

    It is always tempting to buy larger bottles (200ml plus) but with a large collection I don't think its wise because part of what makes this hobby interesting is search for the holy grail of fragrances.

    Sounds like a lot but I've gone through 200 mls pretty fast on several of them, even at a time when I have owned more than a hundred bottles of everything I wanted. I just used 200 mls of Sycomore over the last couple of years and just bought 200 more.

    I try to get the 200 ml (or more) whenever it's available for the scents requiring very generous (and/or frequent) application.
    (Orange Verte, Eaux de Cartier, Eau sauvage, Roger & Gallet, 4711,...).

    It's a much better value and I know I will use the stuff anyway.

    The 2 last big sizes I bought were Mugler Cologne (300 ml for 62 Euros) and Fahrenheit.

    Fahrenheit 100 ml was $72
    Fahrenheit 200 ml was $90

    How long do you think it took me to decide which size to go for ?

    And considering the juice is lighter now, boy am I glad I got the biiiig bottle !

    oh I see.
    For some fragrance, people can never use it up.
    For others, people pour it like rain.

    just bought a new fragrance yesterday, perhaps I have found the fragrance that i would consider buying a larger bottle it is chanel pour monsieur. I feel I found the perfect scent.

    Unless it's a very light fragrance or a splash, I would probably never get around to using 200 mL.

    Even fragrances I love I don't think id ever buy over 100ml, even at 30/50ml it can take a cpl of years to get through a fragrance. In spite of the per/ml savings of higher bottles id sooner prefer to just use the difference between the low and high to just buy a different fragrance.

    Think I had about 750ml of Agua Lavanda by Puig once. I decanted it into a huge pump up aerosol bottle to which I gave one pump too many - and it exploded! Think I must have inhaled about 100ml! Quite a buzz as I recall.

    Also one gigantic splash bottle of Pour Un Homme de Caron which sadly I Ebayed when feeling skint one time...

    I will buy those sizes for one of two reasons: that fragrance is in limited production (e.g., Creed Windsor), or it has such fleeting longevity that it needs frequent re-application (e.g., Chanel Eau de Cologne).

    Price only. I don't like splash.
