    Experiment

    So day 2 of my "How much is too much" experiment is nearing behind me.

    Previously I only used two shots of spray with any and all my colognes. I skipped straight to four a couple days ago and have neither seen, heard nor smelled a difference. I'm using RL romance, at work, in a retail brick and mortar.

    I'll continue this for the week then next jump to six.

    Will keep posted for any, if any, whom might be interested or curious.

    Excellent experiment! Will you be going up to double digits?

    Two sprays, how do you find longevity? Better with four? Were you layering?

    Ya know, I'm just not sure. Before a few days ago I hadn't ever even thought twice about any more than two. It was just routine for me and I was blissfully ignorant that there could be a difference... lol

    So right now I cringe at the idea of double digits, but who knows what tomorrow might bring. That's why I'll keep this updated with my experiences. I'll up the count by two each time.

    Honestly I've noticed zero difference in a lasting scent nor strength. Though this is my daily wear go to Cologne, mostly because I really don't care for it and am trying to use it up without just being wasteful like I usually am with things. Lol

    But that's why I'm giving each level a week to gage as accurately add I can. Some days I'm so hungover I wouldn't smell an elephant turd smeared across my upper lip. Others I'm alert and aware and notice everything. So we'll see...

    Haha. I love the idea of this.

    And what's required before you stop upping the ante?

    3 negative comments in one day?

    5 dirty looks and a few harsh coughs?

    This could get very interesting. Please report!

    I think I'm going to actually prompt people. My coworkers and I are all very close with no Shane between us. One claims to have a sharp sense of smell so I'll use he and the attractive female I work with be my main points of sourcing in their own control group. Then the other set of coworkers as a second group. I'll use the same Cologne every time of course.

    I'll approach it more inconspicuously than outright. I'll simply ask once a week, never same day. Siting I'm trying a new Cologne and can't tell if it's too strong. Or something like that, shouldn't matter much.

    Not that it matters, but I just realized the Cologne I'm using is RL Romance Silver. Just found out the names are on the bottoms of each bottle. Man am I a total newb! Lol

    Word to ya mutha,
    and I'm out!

    If you are going to use a bunch of sprays, I've found that if I put a bunch of sprays right on one spot, it can seemingly change the smell of the stuff....and generally not for the better.

    So I would try and distribute them at various locations on yourself, if you are really going for the gusto.

    Never thought about it, but seems logical enough. Though I've never used the same spot.

    Right now I do one on each side of neck, one center chest, and the last center of gut.

    Thinking when I get to six I'll include back of shirt or pants front and back.

    Word to ya mutha,
