How Many Sprays is 1ml?

On average, 1ml of perfume equates to approximately 10 to 15 sprays. This may not seem like a lot at first glance, but for most perfumes, that’s usually enough to cover your whole body.

Obviously, the actual number of sprays can differ depending on various factors like the spray nozzle design you’re using, and whether you’re fully depressing the sprayer. 

To help put that into perspective, I’ve put together a table showing how many sprays I’ve been able to get out of different perfume bottle sizes, including popular sizes like 30ml and 50ml.

How Many ML in One Perfume Spray?

If you have a 1ml sample and you get 10-15 sprays from it, each spray would contain around 0.1ml. 

I reached this figure by dividing the total militres by the number of sprays (in other words 1 divided by any number between 10 and 15).

Now you know every spray contains roughly a tenth of a mililtre, you can easily work out how far your perfume will go and scale back on your usage if you want to make it last longer. 

Do Different Scents Have Different Spray-to-ml Ratios?

No, different scents don’t have different spray-to-ml ration, at least in my experience. 

Some fragrances may be slightly thicker, which might minimally affect how much perfume they release, but I’ve personally never noticed any meaningful difference between how long any of my perfumes last.

Is 1ml perfume enough to last all day?

Absolutely, 1ml should be more than sufficient to last you the entire day. Given that 1ml typically equates to around 10-15 sprays, you have plenty of liquid to cover all your pulse points—wrists, neck, behind the ears,. You’ll even be able to spray your ankles if you want to jump on the popular trend.

Remember though, a weak fragrance probably won’t last all day no matter how many times you spray.
