1/3 oz would be my choice.

Hi Ayala, I think this is a great idea. I chose 15mL but honestly anything small enough to be portable and affordable would be perfect!

Thank you, ladies!
I really appreciate your input.

15ml would also be my choice. I think it's portable and affordable, and 10-15ml is usually the size I choose for decants or swaps because I know if I use the whole thing, then I'll use an entire bottle so it's worth buying 75-100ml bottles as replacements.

I just recently won (thank you!) but wanted to answer the poll. So don't enter me, but I'm voting for the 10ml. :)

Purse size is always tempting-everyone has room for a few to put in each purse they own!!

Hi Ayala,

I too like 15ml.

I love little bottles that can easily be stashed in my purse or clutch. I guess the 30ml could work here too.

Also, when purchasing perfume, I'm more likely to buy two smaller bottles [for greater choice], than one big bottle.

Tough call! I like your roller bottle sizes. Agree with HJ above on smaller bottles. Would the spray be refillable?

It's interesting that everyone seems to like small spray bottles. For a spray I would like 2oz to 4 oz. A roll on or solid however can be smaller since they last longer.

Diana, Gator Grad, Sharon and Holy -
It seems that generally, most of my customers like to have more than one scent, which is one of the reasons I offer everything in smaller sizes.

Laura,
The new bottles should be refillable; they will most likely look like the new minis (rectangular) but larger and with spray mechanism rather than a splash. This will also make them less feminine-looking than my tear-drop size and hopefully will get more men wearing my scents :-)

Milwaukee Holistic,

I totally agree with you. I'm a little torn myself between being able to offer larger sizes, and keeping everything portable.

The new packaging is not going to replace the existing one, but be an addition to what I offer. So if this will be a larger sizes, there will still be minis, roll-ons etc. for travel and for carrying around in the pocket or purse.

Ayala, yes, I admit that I am one of those people who likes to have more than one. I tend to carry a little tin of sample around in my purse all the time (which has made others mistake me, somewhat comically, as a drug addict).

1/3oz is just enough to give a fragrance a good try.. and small enough to run out so you buy a bigger bottle, ha!

Although I tend to dab natural perfumes, since they are usually more costly and hang close to the skin anyway,. I think a nice 10ml spray is a good choice too.

1/2 ounce is a good size for a start but I must admit that if I fall for the scent,I would then want 2 ounces

I think the 30ml would be perfect. Since it is Eau de Parfum people will spray more often and go through the perfume quicker. The 30ml size would be better just so there would be less shipping too. The bottle would still fit in a purse to be carried with you to refresh your scent during the day. Also for the men that you are trying to get interested in your scent, most will want a little more in the bottle. Not too much though so they can buy a couple scents to wear. I have noticed with my husband that he seem to buy the bigger bottle if he really likes a scent, he is a little more economy based than me when it comes to perfume. I like to have alot of scents to choose from and he only has a couple.

Smaller is better, that way it costs less and you can buy others. It leads to variety.

I tend to prefer smaller sizes. Increasingly I'm buying miniatures, decants, and small bottles ( 30ml and under ) as my collection grows and each bottle gets less regular use. Either 7.5ml or 10ml would be just perfect for me. :)

 
At April 16, 2010 8:38 AM, Blogger Furriner said...

I voted the 15 ml size.... it's portable but vaguely permanent!-seeming!

 
At April 16, 2010 8:45 AM, Blogger Lauren said...

I voted for the smaller size b/c I like to have lots of many different 'fumes :)

I'd go for 10 ml for the portability although 15 ml would work as well (just not as good for the purse).

And please enter me in the draw. Thanks!

So many fabulous scent choices Ayala! I adore fressia so much as well.

I vote for the 15ml size. And I would LOVE to have an atomizer option for your perfumes!!

I find that 1/2 oz makes the most sense to me and that I tend to appreciate scents of which I have less. Scarcity makes the heart grow fonder! :-)

 
At April 16, 2010 8:18 PM, Blogger Ayala Sender said...

Thank you for your comments, everyone! I really appreciate your input. Part of me is a little surprised that you are not requesting a significantly larger size than what I'm already offering. Although, it is twice as much as my current flacon size (which is officially a 1/4oz size, but in reality those little teardrop flacons gobble up 9ml of parfum).

I'm surprised the gentlemen here picked the small size too; because I was always under the impression that you like to have something more easy to hold onto when spritzing the scent on...

Part of me is a little... relieved. But we'll see where this poll will lead in the end.

ElizabethN - how very well said "Scarcity makes the heart grow fonder". It is so true.

I would go with either the 1/2 oz or the 1 oz. I'm sort of torn it may come down to price on which one I would choose. I generally wouldn't buy the largest size just because I may never get to using all of it.

I think half an ounce would be a great size, but an ounce is OK too! (I couldn't pick two choices.) I love the idea of smaller bottles. However, most lines' significantly higher pricing per ml for smaller bottles kills my natural bargain hunter instinct!

Please enter me in the draw, thanks.

10ml or 15ml would be good - 10ml is a very popular size for swappers to trade, so it would be great if you could buy more in that size. : - )

Hi Ayala,

I like 10 and 15 ml bottles, as the quality of your perfumes means a little goes a long way. Plus I'd love to be able to buy a few of your scents, rather than just one single large bottle.

Thanks for asking us!
Sue

I'd say 15ml or 30ml would be ideal for me. Anything larger will end up sitting around in my collection for quite a while...plus keeping in mind the price factor, I could easily buy a few of the smaller sizes in one purchase.

And I'd, of course, love to entered in the giveaway!

1 oz is my choice- it is small enough to carry in a purse yet substantial enough to last for a few months to a year :)

Hi Ayala,
I voted for the 15 ml spray. When I've been through a small bottle though, and still wear it a lot, I'll by the biggest size!

Teardrop bottle: doesn't work for me. Mine tipped over & spilled ;)

Thank you everyone for your feedback. It is very valuable.
Gail, I'm sorry to hear your teardrop bottle tipped and spilled. It it's sealed properly it wouldn't happen, these bottles are excellent quality and I've even travel with them in my purse, backpack or suitcase with no spillage!
but I can see how that could happen while in the middle of applying the scent. Flacons are a dainty little thing and it's almost like a ritual applying these, in the amount of care and attention it requires. It's certainly very old-world. Spray and roll-on are more suitable for today's fast paced world...!

EDP strength, eh? I guess that seems like the bigger change to me. I voted for 1 oz, since I'd like a bit more than a decant size, and I rarely carry bottles around with me in the first place. With your parfums, I've been decanting into a 5ml sprayer for the ones I prefer to spray vs. dab. I haven't had the flacon tip over on me yet, but in the back of my mind I still worry!
