New Bottle Style, opinions wanted

I'm thinking of going with a new bottle for my Aftershave Balm and my Golden Aftershave Balm.  The bottles have a more streamline look to them and they also have a mini pump on the top making it easier to dispense just a small amount.   The pump also has a cap which is nice for those that travel.

I would be getting them in both the 2 oz and the 4 oz size bottles with the same top pump.

Here you can see both bottles side by side, and both are 2 oz bottles.   The old bottle has a disk cap that one side flips up and you squeeze the bottle to dispense the amount you want.  Or I could continue to go with the old style and cap and still have the pump as optional.  




Let me know which style of bottle you would prefer by posting a comment here to this blog page.   If you are a member of one of the shaving forums please include your forum ID when you make your comment (and which shaving board your a part of) and a winner will be chosen at random to win a 2 oz bottle in the style of their choice also in the scent of their choice!  Winner will be chosen on Wednesday Nov 18th and you will receive a PM on the forum from me requesting your contact info so I know where to send your prize and how to customize it for you.   So please be honest with your opinions and let me know what you would prefer as a customer.



Edited to add that both 2 oz and 4 oz size will be available and they will use the same top/pump just different sized bottles.   And the 2oz size would work just fine for those that travel by air and it's a sleek enough sized bottle.

I have the 2 oz size in stock at the moment and that measures from the top of the lid to the bottom 5 3/8" high and is about 1 1/4" in diameter

Just an idea but the 4oz bottles do not meet TSA guidelines to bring as a carry on. I pour everything into 3oz travel bottles. Maybe something to think about for folks like myself who travel almost weekly.

I really like the bottle with the pump. Are you still offering both the 2 oz. and 4 oz. versions with the pump, or just the 4 oz. version? It would be nice to have both, especially with regard to airline travel. TSA is fairly picky.
Thanks,

I prefer the pump version, as the disk cap can sometimes get bumped in transit and allow some of the contents to come out.

I think the new bottle looks much better.

I like the new pump bottle better. Seems easier to use and to get the same amount to come out.

I like the new bottle, more modern looking. Sleeker.

I like that the current bottle isn't as tippy as taller/sleeker bottles that I have.

The current one is also manlier ;)

That's right. 2oz is a convenient size as well for travel. Wasn't thinking.

I see no downside to the new bottles!
