A perfume atomizer is a small perfume bottle that mist sprays the perfume, you can also call it a small mist spray perfume bottle. Perfume atomizers normally only spray a small amount of perfume, they only spray perfume in the spot you want, so it can save the perfume and make your perfume a long time to use. They are designed to prevent the waste, spillage, and evaporation of the perfume.

Perfume atomizers consist of 3 parts, the aluminum cover outside, the glass bottle, and the spray pump. Below you can see the photo for reference:

  • Aluminum cover: The outside aluminum case always makes the perfume atomizers good-looking. It also protects the perfume atomizers from scratching, denting, crashing, and so on.
  • Glass bottle: The glass inner bottle is used to store the perfume.
  • Spray pump: the spray pump draws the perfume from the bottom of the bottle. It has a pump valve on the top, which convert the perfume into the mist.

After introducing the structure, I will let you know how perfume atomizers work. There is a plastic tube linking the bottom of the glass bottle and the nozzle, the spray would activate the piston to draw perfume from bottom to top through the plastic tube. The pump forces this perfume down a narrow barrel and out a small hole at the top of the spray pump. The hole, or nozzle, serves to focus the flowing perfume so that it forms a mist spray.
