    Is too much?

    How many squirts do you use?

    Where do you spray?

    Are you more traditional and do the wrists then rub elsewhere?

    Just curious.

    Don't understand question #1: Is what too much?

    Question #2: 3 sprays for me works well.

    I do 2. One to neck and one to chest. Why do people do wrists and, this is new to me, inner elbows...?

    Something about those always seemed so feminine to me so I couldn't bring myself to do it. Like behind the ears.

    What about to clothing? When I say I apply to chest I mean my shirt. Figure the deodorant stick took care of the upper body fine, as if anyone were going to be smelling me there let alone seeing. I don't make going shirtless in public a habit. Lol

    So how much is too much then.

    What about spraying into the air then walking through. I had a girlfriend that always did that.

    One spray to the chest...that's it ! You won't get nose fatigue from that distance, you'll enjoy walfs of the frag periods of the day, and people who come in contact with you enjoy the faint smell of the frag. If you don't believe me go to Twitter and search for too much cologne or to much cologne. You would be shocked what people say about the guy who puts on too much cologne (ie hammering on 8 sprays of anything, including MI).

    I try to limit my fragrance to 1-2 sprays on the chest and 1-2 more behind each, ear, with additional 1-2 sprays on my neck if the fragrance is really low projection.

    Depends on the fragrance.

    post #10 of 35

    I do the same. I hit each wrist instead of each ear. Also, this varies depending on the strength of the fragrance.

    I typically use 4 sprays:

    2 on the neck

    2 on the chest (shirt)

    I find that it allows the scent to project pretty well, and the sprays on the shirt help with longevity.

    That brings up an interesting point, I find that when sprayed on clothing the integrity of the scent remains. Whereas when attached to skin it can morph into something completely different. Especially notice this with musks, which is why I generally have a distaste for them.

    I too prefer to use my shirt and find that not only does the smell remain true to the fragrance, but it seems to me as well to have greater longevity of life.

    Anyone else care to add or beg to differ? I'd be curious to hear others' experiences.

    Lol well good for you, no hate at all. More like envy!

    I think I should take an average here. Also makes me wonder if climate has something to do with it all. Or demographic.

    I'm going to slowly start upping my number of squirts one by one and see where the breaking point is and find for myself what is an acceptable amout.

    I find that women tend to use a lot more, then again I have always dated younger girls so that may be a major contributing factor. But my exes have all done at least 5, if not more. They did hair, front and back of neck, cleav, shirt, pants, wrists, etc. Ridiculous, but man do I love a good smelling female no matter how strong.
