    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.

    Close to 200 ml per year at a guess.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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
