Tiny kittens. Mini-bar Svedka bottles. What makes miniature things so inherently adorable? Is it the Peter Dinklage effect? (It's totally the Peter Dinklage effect.)
Dinklage dimples! We are not worthy!
For definitive proof that bigger isn't always better, look no further than fragrance minis. Fun-sized fragrances are the perfect low-cost, low-risk way to try a new scent without committing to a huge bottle. And it's not just our commitment issues talking; minis are a lot more convenient to toss into your purse/briefcase/man purse than lugging a full-size bottle around.
Yes, small things clearly come in small packages, but what kind of package? You'll find three formats of fragrance minis: sprays, rollerballs, and dabbers. Read on for an excessively thorough comparison of all three methods.
Which type of fragrance mini do you prefer? Any tragic stories of rollerball leaks? Please feel free to share with us in the comments!

Hm! Good questions. I usually prefer to decant my perfumes into plastic spray vials with screw-tops, and I’ve learned not to be too cheap — they need to last through lots of banging around in my purse. I’ve never had a problem with roll-ons, but then again, I don’t use them as often. nervously goes to check Rose Noir roll-on in bag The worst thing I’ve ever tried? — those $9 atomizers that you fill by attaching to the top of your bottle spray mechanism and pushing down, etc. They look cool, but they allow the fragrance to evaporate in a matter of days. Just say no.
