    I get dark blue ones at the vitamin store. I don’t remember the price but they’re cheap and they come in a couple of different sizes.
    I’ve got some with sprayers and some with the little plastic doohickey like aftershave bottles.
    I also bought a couple of small (.5 oz) bottles that have a metal roller ball for dispensing.

    Hot sauce bottles with the plastic restrictions work well. I have a set of Perfumer's funnels that make transfer less messy.

    That's free bottles. I watch for interesting vintage glass while in antique shops.
    Clean empty bottles.gif Don't be afraid if the old ones are dirty inside. After dish soap washing, let it dry and add large crystal salt. Shake it to grind out any stuck materials. Here's a before and after photo.

    I ordered several bottles off ebay. They were new hot sauce bottles, with the insert and cap. Fairly cheap. You just have to look at what size you need.

    If they are Buy It Now (BIN), feel free to post links. My decants are into bottles of opportunity. Might be nice to get a set of same style/different sizes.

    I have to second @RyX, perfumer's funnels make decants much easier.

    Is a perfumer's funnel made of stainless steel?

    I think mine are. Mom's a mail order catalogue junkie and that's where I got a set. Never saw the original listing, she presented the 3 piece set without any tag or label.

    I love the Tabasco bottles. That little ring under the top helps to keep the bottle from sliding out of you hand. :happy088:

    I also like the stopper which keeps a whole bunch of the AS from coming out.

    I started out with the 3 oz. spray bottles for travel, but someone put me on to the little blue glass bottles. I got a bunch online. They make my aftershaves last a long long time.

    The ones I have are brass, not stainless.
    I don't imagine it makes any difference.
