Here’s a photo of the 5 ml purse sprays I’m using to make spray testers for the studio. I thought these sprays might be nice to offer for fall and the holiday season on my website, both as unboxed singles and in boxed sets of two, in any choice of scents (two fit perfectly in my black perfume boxes). These cased purse sprays are more expensive than the clear glass kind with no surrounding case housing, but I love how the black case protects the juice from light and they look more elegant. They are refillable so if someone purchased a larger bottle after liking the 5 ml spray, the 5 ml could be refilled to carry along in a purse or pocket. These purse sprays also spray much better than any of the smaller 1-2.5 ml sprayers I’ve tried.
The 5 ml sprays of Sonoma Scent Studio perfumes sell for $16.25 at TPC so it’d make sense to offer the same price for them as unboxed singles on my site (a bit less for a couple of the less expensive scents). In boxed sets of two the price would be about the same as the 17 ml bottles. As sizes go smaller the price per ml goes up because the bottle and label costs are similar and labor is the same, so the smaller sizes cost proportionately more to make. Yet, sometimes small sizes can be economical for the perfume collector to buy no more than really needed at one time even though the cost per ml is higher.
If there is interest in these it’d be easy to offer a few this fall/winter and see how it goes. The 17 ml size that I offer already on the site is a nice size when you already know you like a scent, but the 5 ml would be more of a trial size and might make nice little gifts too.
I’m hoping to get the lotion on the site tonight. I need to do a few more things today to be ready though.
