Do Trumper colognes and/or aftershaves come with atomizers?

I think it depends on the size and the bottle. If it has a crown top - it's a splash, but that's really a good thing, since the ones I've tried were massively powerful. One in particular had to be parfum concentration, spraying it only meant total bio-hazard olfactory destruction to all within a two-block blast radius.

It was Curzon, actually. Fairly similar to Antaeus, it was really more like a sharper Antaeus in parfum strength, after being left in a hot car for the day (actually, pretty similar now that I recall). The last time I wore it was a semi-warm day - it bloomed on me and gassed me out of my office. I spent a lot of time outside that day.

The others? Trumpers Sandalwood is a dead ringer for Chanel Egoiste (which I detest), and GFT strongly resembles the industrial-strength lemon-peel air freshener we use in the men's room. Wellington was a big dose of blah, iirc.

Eucris tempted me but I never could find a bottle at a price I was willing to pay. After I sold off my tub of Trumper's Rose shaving cream (good but not great), I've not been tempted by any of their offerings since. If you try any of Trumper's goods, I hope you have better luck than I did.
