Pondering A New Bottle

Testing Orcas perfume mod-V in the new 15ml spray size to see that there is no spillage, evaporation, etc. also during travels.

But I'm posting this because I'm curious to hear what my customers think of this new bottle - it's the same shape and style as my 4ml mini, and likewise - these bottles are made in Italy.
The difference is not only the size (15ml - the largest size so far), but also the method of application it will offer: it will be packaged as a splash bottle with the spray attachment on the side, so you can have both options, as you see fit.

The pricing for these will be the same as for the teardrop bottles - because this is basically half the concentration, and roughly double the amount of jus. i.e.: $90-$135 for 15ml EDP.

Edit/clarification: It's been my intention for quite sometime to offer a spray option, and SmellyBlog readers seemed to prefer the 15ml size in a poll we had here back in April. My question to you is how do you feel about this shape - rectangular, and very much the same design as my minis - as the spray option for a lighter concentration of some of my perfumes.

In short -
Yay or nay?

Hi Ayala
I like the idea of offering clients a choice - splash or squirt - not that that sounds very refined!
Some of us are dabbers and spashers, and others just can't go past misting ourselves, can we?

Personally, I feel eau de toilette and cologne strength perfumes deserve liberal spraying and splashing, whereas the stronger and/or very valuable fragrances are gifts to applied with purpose, from small bottles, with tiny necks... for mindful dabbing in special places. But that's just me.

Hi Ayala ~ I'm with Margi on this one.

Lighter scents, I like to spray, walk through a cloud of scent so some reaches my clothes and stays with me all day.

Richer, heavier, stronger, costly scents I love in a wee bottle for, as already stated 'mindful dabbing' and reapplying as want demands. :-D

Thank you for your comments, Margi and Holly!

I guess I should rephrase my question - there is no doubt that there are going to be spray bottles. It's been long coming... And I even had a poll here not too far back.

The question is what you think about this bottle in particular.

I like the classic clean lines of the rectangular bottle. I say yay.

Nice-looking bottle... its corners are softer than 'basic' rectangular bottles, which often have very definite corners and edges.

Does it feel nice and weighty and substantial in the hand?
I always feel light-weight glass feels 'non-luxurious' even if it's cost a small fortune.
