I was asked a question that comes up regularly, thus I thought it made sense to illuminate the answer here for everyone. The question is: “How much is in the small (mini compact) inserts compared to the sample (pink) pots?
The pink sample pots have the smallest amount of solid perfume, since they are “samples” and were originally created as a gateway to the round compacts back in 2008. Since then the tribe of solid perfume offerings currently contains:
- Single Solid Perfume Samples
- Flat little tin inserts for the mini compacts and lockets
- Perfume lockets
- Round Tins
- Round Compacts
- Oval Compact
Here is the breakdown of how much, by weight, is in each item:
Pink pot samples contain at least 0.5 grams of solid perfume, sometimes more,
they measure 1 inch wide x 3/4 inch high.
1.5 grams of solid perfume.
over 0.3 grams, in the round tin which measures 1 and 3/8″ x 1/2″ deep.
A color coded honey bee wax seal indicates the fragrance within the container.
