I'm a new member but a long time lurker. In fact Basenotes is my go to site for anything and everything fragrance related.
I recently got a bottle of 212 NYC Men from a reputable online retailer and it just does not project at all on me. For kicks I sprayed on 9 sprays which would normally clear a room with most of my fragrances. I got roughly a 4-6" projection and no sillage what-so-ever but the longevity is fine. Most reviews indicate the projection is about average so my question is, could it be body chemistry or maybe a "stale" bottle? It's hard to believe body chemistry would negate 9 sprays of a fragrance. I had a tester a few months ago and remember something much different than this. Any ideas?
