    Default using dab-on as spray-on

    i have a few miniature sample type bottles from the likes of amouage and chanel and they are dab-ons. are these the same exact juice as found in their larger spray-on bottles as i would like to buy empty spray -on perfume bottles and put these dab-ons in them. am i missing something here, are these only to be used as dab-ons and would not work as spray-ons or would they work fine as spray-ons?

    They should work just fine as spray-ons.

    Seconding the advice-opinion that decanting into a spray bottle/vial usually helps in solving the issue of imprecise, often unreliable, difficultly predictable application amounts and/or methods found in experienced with splash or dabbing miniatures, as well as larger sized bottles

    Are the Amouage perfumes marked as "Attar"? If so, they may be too thick to properly spray out.

    Cool Re: using dab-on as spray-on

    I remember getting samples in my teenage years that were packaged as a moist towlette. You just tear open the wrapper and the scent is on a scented pad and you could just rub the pad on the areas you want. Anyone remember that or what scent it was?
    That's what the phrase 'dab-on' first reminded me of.

    no the amouages are the mini sample sets of lyric,epic etc. they come in little miniature copies of the big standard sized bottles but they are dab on.
