    Default What do you think is the best all around travel atomizer size and where do you buy it from?

    Hey guys-I have been using the 5ml plastic atomizers from Pilot viles for quite awhile with good results. Price seems very reasonable(under $20 for 2 doz. shipped to me)and the sprayers put out a wide cone of finely sprayed mist. Also the 5ml seems like a pretty versatile size...lasts awhile between fill-ups and is pretty easy to carry around fairly discretely in a pocket.

    But want to hear from others who have tried other sizes and companies, and what your experience/opinions are?! Best size? Best value? Thanks in advance

    I prefer the 15mL size and I buy them from eBay.

    I have been using the 4ml glass atomizers from SKS-bottle.com and have been happy with them. Reasonably priced, too.

    I want to try glass actually, but am afraid one might bust while in my pocket at work or while I'm out and about. In your experience, have you ever had this happen or do they seem pretty durable?

    Does this size fit in your pocket comfortably? Or is it mostly used for putting in car/gym bag/ect.? So Ebay is a cheaper alternative at less an $1 each?

    I would warn against glass. Inevitably, they will fall and shatter. (Hotel bathrooms and gym shower floors can be really hard).

    I like 5ml too, and one can bring a couple with different scents, for a change.

    It's a good question. I only use them for travel, I put them in a ziploc baggy in my carry-on. I haven't tried carrying them around in my pocket. They seem sturdy (for glass), but I'm sure they could break if they took a hard knock or hit a sharp edge.

    Nordstrom has a nice travel atomizer that is glass inside a hard plastic bullet in many different colors for $5. I have a lot of them and they work great. Never measured the volume but I think 5ml.

    15ml seems appropriate to me. (248)

    Their service is pretty good. They also send you a few funnels and stickers with your order.

    I bought a ton on ebay of these 10ML with gold atomizer and cap. The sprayer is awesome. You can actually control the amount. You can do a tiny little spritz, medium spray or full blast. They're excellent quality and never had any problems with leaking when i've used them, or i've given out some of my juice to family or friends.

    I like the 5 ml "purse" atomizers. I don't decant fragrances often for personal use, so when I do I get a nice atomizer to go with it out of respect for the fragrance I'm decanting.

    Accessories for fragrances is great. Here's an example of one of the 5ml atomizers I'm talking about: 5 ml Atomizer

    I like the Flo Travel Atomizer. 6ml fill and you can purchase it on Amazon for $12.

    I wash out and label the atomizers I get with the many samples I use. They're only 2ml but when I travel I grab a handful of them. It's like having a mini collection on my trips.
