Caps, Spray Pumps, Orifice Reducers
When you buy perfume bottles in bulk, they will be sold without "closure"s — the cap or spray pump that holds the liquid perfume in the bottle.
Perfume bottles are made to take either a screw-on or crimp-type closure. Screw-on closures can be screwed on by hand. Crimp-style closures must be mounted to your bottle by a crimp machine. If you, or your contract packager, do not have access to a crimp machine, you'll want to select screw-on closures.
Since bottles and closures are made by different manufacturers, even when ordering both in a "standard" size, the fit should be tested with a sample before you place your order. All too often you will find that, although they should go together, they don't!
Both caps and metal fine mist spray pumps can be ordered in small quantities, although quantities under 1,000 pieces tend to be a bit expensive. Orders can be place online. Bottles and closures can be purchased together. This makes sense for smaller quantities.

An excellent source for caps. Weak on fine mist sprayer.
- McKernan Packaging
Closeout, overstocks of bottles, pumps, caps etc. $500 minimum order. Finding caps and orifice reducing plugs in the size you want can be easy. Finding metal fine mist sprayers — with overshell — can be close to impossible. They get a large turnover in inventory so, if you need a closure in a large lot, get on their catalog mailing list and check their website regularly.
