To be perfectly honest, I have objected to spraying perfume from atomizers into a sample vile. I think that aerating the perfume can change the way it smells. Does anyone else share that opinion?
Is there another way? Do you use syringes with long needles? Now I'm very curious....
On youtube there is a small video of someone who uses a syringue. When buying decant supplies (a ton of vials) I also bought pipettes along with syringues. That was a no-go area when trying out the first bottle to decant from.
The tube is far too narrow to have a regular needle go into.
So I sprayed into vials.. a horrid experience as I spilled as much as got into the vial (even WITH a funnel that came with a travel atomizer) . It scarred me and scared me away from making decants for 3 months already!!!
However, I was told that particular bottle was a royal PITA to spray from, so this made me feel better about being such a klutz (a biehl).
The person who actually posted the Youtube video (forgot where it is, may look it up) told me to get diabetes needles .
Only 2 days ago I finally bought a few of those needles.. now just look whether they are really that slim and can be used.
So, originally my idea was that decanting with a syringue would preserve the top notes better, but now I just think it would be less messy. Provided you CAN actually lift off the cap as for some bottles this is next to impossible.
I'm the opposite: spraying bashes me in the head with a giant mallet, lol. I'm totally a dabbler at heart, so I decant all my scents into vials and rollers. But when I can't see the sprayer... Well I once sprayed myself full in the face. It was quite an experience, lol.
Oh, how I love thee...
Another dabber! Really, if I had known about the options I would never have thrown away Trésor and use Tendre Poison more often. 1 single spray was/is waaaay too much.
Love love dabbing the samples of sillage monsters!
