    Wink What made you go for a 200ml or 400ml bottle?

    I never did so cos' I'm a beginner.
    I am quite attracted to the 30ml bottles as they are pretty handy but more expensive.
    Any experience to share?

    I totallly agree with you that as a beginner, buy very slow and small quantities until you are more sure of your taste.

    That said, I started out all crazy and even purchased two of the Chanel Exclusif 200ml bottles blind. They were only offered in that size at the time, and I wanted the scents. Fortunately, I loved them But that was somewhat lucky.

    Depends on your choice - my preferred choice is always 100ml, very rarely I go for more than that, a few that I did were Fahrenheit / Declaration / Norma Kamali Incense (only 1 size) etc...

    That said, I would love a 100ml or more of any Nasomatto / Slumberhouse / Serge Lutens, but they are all 50ml or less...

    The couple of bottles I have in those sizes were purchased because they are a favourite scents, and I class myself as a collector.

    It depends, I don't have a 'set' way of doing things....one 200ml bottle is unused, and will probably stay that way as I have another, smaller bottle of the same fragrance, while a 250ml bottle I own is in use as it's all I own of that scent. But we're talking two scents here out of a collection of 70+. Buying bottles in these sizes isn't the norm.....!

    I have 1 liter (33 oz) of Jean Marie Farina and 4711 each . These are the classic eau de colognes. I have 200ml of Eau Sauvage and 500ml of Hammam Bouquet. Sometimes I feel that hoarding is a good thing, or sometimes the fragrance is so basic and I wear it so often that it becomes viable.

    Very rarely go above 100ml -- I get fed up with them and want to try something else.

    I own the 200ml bottles of all the Chanel Exclusives as they are a much better buy.

    I've only bought large bottles if I was able to get a great deal.

    Back when I was a one-scent-guy, I bought the largest bottle I could find in order to save the most money per ounce/ml. These days, I don't mind buying the smallest bottle I can find. It may cost more per ml, but I'll probably never finish it anyway, which means I saved money by not spending more to buy extra juice I didn't use.

    Patchouli Imperial, Leather Oud and Sycomore in 200ml size. These are not cheap fragrances but at this size the cost per ml makes them a steal. Luckily I love all of them and wear them often. Still, it has to be smarter to buy smaller sizes but I just can't do it!

    When you are quite sure that you adore something, a big bottle is good, especially summer colognes.

    I'll buy the largest spray bottle available. That's why Dior and Chanel are nice.

    Reason being if I like it, I want to enjoy it for as long as possible in its current formulation.

    This would be a nice buy for a 200ml+ purchase for only £270? :P

    200ml? Goodness that's a lot of one frag to get through. I'd much rather have 4 (differing )50ml bottles even though it would be more expensive

    You can decant swap later on. But make sure you like the juice enough just in case you are stuck with it

    Price per ml, you pay a little bit more and get twice as much. It's a no brainer for me.

    For summer selection of EDC type formulations. I splash them on liberally and go through them in one season (sometimes in a matter of weeks). For example, R&G Jean Marie Farina or Hermes Eau D'Orange Verte, etc.

    I kind of like smaller bottles myself; they're affordable and don't take up too much room.

    Currently, I have a 200 ml bottle of Hermès Eau de Pamplemousse Rose, a 250 ml bottle of L'Artisan L'Eau de Jatamansi, and a 500 ml bottle of Comme des Garçons Vettiveru. In the past I've had (and finished) several 400 ml bottles of Hermès Eau d'Orange Verte, but don't currently. As you can see, they are all kind of lighter, colognes or cologne-like scents, so I tend to use a lot more. Or that's the thought, at least.
