I know it seems pretty taboo to use cologne in your armpits but I found that using an unscented deodorant and a spray on each pit gives me alot more sillage than any other type on my body. Does anyone else do this?
I spray armpits too (both skin and shirt), but wear suits, so it doesn't project much, since it's very covered. When I remove my jacket, I get a nice whiff, though.
But you're right that if one's wearing a t shirt or something with short sleeves, sillage will be big, since armpits are very warm.
I don't think there's a problem with sweat. If the sweat stinks, it will stink no matter what, whether it's on its own or whether a perfume happens to be on top of it.
Yes it works fine.
It takes a bit longer to get out from there, but you are projecting from the sides and getting a better distributed all round scent aura.
Logically it's the best location to spray because,
a...........Sprayed on chest you have to smell it strongly all the time,
b...........Sprayed on neck - well all the people you pass can smell it,
c...........Sprayed on arms or wrists, I find distracting, especially when eating, having a coffee or driving.
d...........Sprayed on back of legs (as some have suggested here in the past), I just don't understand.
Though it may be wise to use an unscented antiperspirant which blocks all pores, if you are going to spray scent there, rather than a deodorant which blocks nothing.
Ouch! Fragrances are alcohol-based. A good number of anti-perspirants and deodorants are alcohol free because it causes stinging, burning and other irritations. If you've got pits of steel, go for it... but I know mine burn with alcohol based products so I wouldn't dream of it. Also, who knows what the impacts to your sweat glands might be - skin tags being one result of some unharmonious balance within your body.
