    I love roll on perfume. For one, a lot of them come in small sizes for travel and purses. They can be re-filled too :D. Sometimes I save the bottles for other perfumes. Another thing that I love is that I can control where the scent goes. It’s all about control for me.

  2. It’s definitely a lot more convenient and portable. I like the idea of putting your own perfume into an empty roll on, or adding a bit of oil for longevity. With that said, I’d rather do it myself then pay for a whole new one, even if it is smaller/less expensive than the bottle. Sometimes I want a spritz, other times the roll is good.. it’s all about options for me. :)

    i’ve actually never used a roll on perfume. Seems pretty convenient to me though :)

    I love roll-ons! So many times when I use a spray perfume, I get too much on or don’t get it exactly where I want it (I always hit the side of my face when I’m aiming for my neck!). Roll-ons are so easy to stick in your purse and you can always put just a little bit more on in the afternoon when the scent is fading.

    (My favourite roll-ons are Bathed & Infused!)

    Hmm… I’m not really into perfume, but roll-ons remind me of elementary school??

    I don’t like them, I like the creativity that goes into the bottle of perfume alone, not including the scent itself. I don’t know why but roll ons just seem cheap to me and I always get the vibe with them that they’re just something the companies make in order to throw in gift sets to make it seem like you’re getting more.

    Not a big fan.. I’d rather fill up an atomizer.. I guess it’s the fact that it sprays that I like..

    I used to pooh pooh roll-ons, but I have a few now and love them. I grabbed SJP Lovely and Stella McCartney Stella because I wasn’t sure I wanted a whole bottle. I rarely use up even 50 ml of perfume because I’m always on to a new favorite scent (I got into makeup/beauty blogs from a few perfume blogs I frequent). I think any small size perfume (yet bigger than a sample) is a great way to introduce more people to the scent without having to commit to a full bottle. The roll-on apparatus itself I haven’t had a problem with, although there is something satisfying about spritzing yourself. I love that these are more purse-friendly, but the roll-on doesn’t turn me on or off to the product.

    Love the new roll-on scents but also love the spritz. My favorites now is Vera Wang, Juicy Couture and Stella.
