    Default How much fragrance do you use annually?

    Just a generic question, not about designer, niche, night or day, etc. OVerall, how much do you know or feel you go through in the ocurse of a year? Has this number gone up or down as an overall trend for you?

    Interested in seeing if there are any customer segment delineations to be gathered.

    I'd say I use about 5-10 sprays a day (considering that some days I reapply during the day, or I spray on paperstrip for the breast pocket), or 1/2 to 1 ml. So over a year that would make about 200-400 ml. And perhaps half as much in samples I exchange with other people.

    It goes without saying that I've been purchasing far more than 400 ml perfume per year, with obvious results.

    About six sprays a day. (two scents) Sometimes only three per day over a year whatever the equivalent in ml would be.

    200ml a year is about right, I'd say...

    A few full bottles (the equivalent of at least about 100 ml each) yearly, but more or less evenly distributed over a few tens, slightly below one hundred bottles of full scents each. Thus rarely seeing a bottle fully used up, especially as the amount and the frequency of scent purchases increases.

    Default Re: How much fragrance do you use annually?

    Close to 200 ml per year at a guess.

    Default Re: How much fragrance do you use annually?

    5-10 sprays a day... 365 days a year...

    While I'm using about 100ml a year, I'm buying (or get given) more like 600ml a year, and have done for the last six years.

    About 750ml per year.

    I would say that bathe in about 200mls a year. Yes, I would say as my interest piques for different fragrance my number goes up.

    350ml a year is about right. That's with two applications every day!

    Andy, where does that 14 sprays / mL come from? sounds high to me, by about double, but have never measured

    It comes from here:

    Although Kevin actually worked it out to be closer to 15 sprays per ml.

    Depends on the sprayer calibration, though - some of my Guerlains dispense a mini shower with each spray.

    I use around 175-200ml per year. 3-5 sprays per day, depending on reapplication etc.

    I probably spray about 150 ml per year, and that number has gone down over the last year or so. I often do not change my scent in the evenings anymore, as I often can still smell it enough to continue on enjoying it. Or else I just forget

    A 1 ml decant usually gives me 6 wears. I also think 14 is a little high, but I suppose it depends on how much you apply.

    Most of the decants I use are not a spray but a dab decant, so can't say how many sprays that is accurately. When spraying from a bottle it depends on the strength of the perfume, usually it's 3 quick sprays for most, but some are so strong 1 is enough.

    Default Re: How much fragrance do you use annually?

    Ah, ok. For 6 wears at 14 sprays, it would be 2.3 sprays per wear, which seems pretty reasonable. The sprayers are designed to dispense a set amount of microliters on average, and they vary by sprayer manufacturer and house.

    1 ml is approx 10 sprays - give or take a spray or two.

    I've made enough samples for friends that I now know 1ml is approx 10 sprays.

    Sounds closer to what I was thinking. thanks!

    For me, say an average of 5 sprays/day= approx. 180mL/year
