Thread: Decanting supplies?
A small abundance of a discontinued fragrance might arrive next week or so, and I may try to sell off a large amount by way of decanting and/or bottle(s) or w/e.
What are reputable websites/places to get decanting supplies from?
Interested in pipettes, small graduated cylinders, and quality glass atomizers - at least.
Thanks in advance!
(If there's any recommendations on what to get in addition to, please feel free to comment/suggest!)

Thanks guys. For trying to do ~10 mL decants; would you recommend a 10 mL size atomizer? or go up a little, or what?
If I put ~10 mL of liquid into a 10 mL atomizer, I'd maybe want some space, and not have it seem 'packed' in there - may also be helpful during the shipping process to allow for expanding without bursting/liquid coming out perhaps?

Personally I have not found that the atomizers hold more than the advertised amount.
I suggest buying some 10ml syringes so you can measure accurately.
Theoretically(?), would 10 ml be able to fit comfortably in http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfume-Atom...item7b6f304d75 ?
As in good to fit 10 ml and allow for expansion during shipping process?
Also, is it recommended to add some kind of tape or something around the area where the atomizer top gets screwed onto the bottle itself? I got decants from Boomer before and they came with a kind of tape or something.
Edit: If any of you guys/gals who do decanting could link for what type(s) you use for 10 ml, thanks in advance .
Those atomizers work great. Yes, they will hold 10ml comfortably.
The tape you're referring to is called micro film. It can be used as an extra precaution, but it's not necessary. Just make sure you leave a little room for expansion.

I use plumber's tape (a.k.a. Teflon tape) over the threads (go no more than 2 times around the threads) which improves the seal when I screw on the sprayer.
Then I wrap over the joint with Parafilm (available on eBay-- a 5 or 10 feet, 4" wide, is cheap enough.) Parafilm is used in labs to seal beakers. You stretch it as you apply it and it adheres only to itself.
Seems like everything is sold in bulk online. Are there any retail stores that might stock 5/10 ml bottles and atomizers? Suppose I wanna go out now and buy them, any luck with that?
