Back in the jurrasic days I knew a fragrance  rep for who our store was a client. We would go have a drink now and then if our stop was at the end of the day. Back then most top of the line mens fragrances came either in a spray or a splash, whether EdTor EdP.  He told me the splash version contained more of the oils and whatever and they are stronger with longer longevity . I did my own research to verify which was to use sample bottles when I got to work and run my own test. In the end, the splash did last longer and, anecdotal of course,  got more compliments from the ladies....so why are they all spray now?

More oils equates higher cost?
Running two different production lines means higher cost?
A trend towards sprays for the easier application?

I think ease of application plays a large role; people today seem to think that saving a second here or there is worth it in the end (spoiler: it ain't)

Didn't notice that my 200ml splash bottle of Pen's Blenheim Bouquet smells different than my 100ml spray. Also a few my 250ml splash bottles of Creed fragrances smell the same like their 120ml or 75ml spray counterparts. TBH in case of Creeds depend on batches.

I would argue the oil content is likely identical but you perhaps get a more "generous" application using the splash method which is then perceived as being more potent than the equivalent spray... Just a thought.

Oh no, my friend, read my last sentence in my post once again, please. Just wanted to say if you buy for example Pure White Cologne in 250ml bottle and in the same time/ same batch in 75ml bottle you receive the same juice. Of course, another batch=another juice, but you will receive the same juice independently if you have splash or spray version.

250ml is splash only and 75 ml is spray only, to be clear.

Well, the difference  if there is any would be longevity.

I can only speak based on my own experience - and I have rarely bought a splash EDC/EDT/EDP fragrance.

I don’t think there is a logical reasoning behind a fragrance company producing two batches of the same fragrance, one in the splash bottle and one in the spray.

What would be the logic behind it ?

They however quite often make the same fragrance in a weaker version with less alcohol as an after shave splash version.
They also sometimes make a perfume version of an edt strength fragrance and charge more for it. But for them to make two similar priced juices and call them the same, but one contains a higher concentration of fragrances oils just does not make logical sense.

I’m not saying it never has happened.
Just saying it would not make sense to do so. The fragrance company would almost always name the version with a higher concentration of fragrance oils as a EDP or Extreme or Forte or Parfum version and typically up the price by 20%-25%.

I only see the benefit in splash bottles for two reasons:

1. You want to use it as an after shave on shaved skin.
2. You want to sell decants of the fragrance or you like to carry smaller bottles of the fragrance with you, when travelling, going to work, going out or on vacation.

Other than that, I far prefer a spray bottle.

Clause makes a very good point that companies wouldn't make two batches of same product,  one for spray and one in a splash. 
The mistake I made was recounting what he said and how they were offered.  It's not that the same fragrance came in both spray and splash but some 
companies came splash only and other companies only offered sprays. Eventually they all or most all, switched to spray and odds are it was for economic reasons.

I'm from the Louisiana swampland.

I have NEVER even HEARD of any man in my region using a SPRAY!

Splashes only! The bigger the splash, the more intense the smell. Easy peasy.

(I don't think we are very " sophisticated " down here. ).
To each his own.
