Not your ordinary Sillage question

    As always, hat's off to the experts whose wisdom is already enshrined in the archived posts.

    I want monster sillage. I want my Atelier Orange Sanguine to form a veritable force field of scent around me. But it doesn't. It lasts on my skin for a solid 6+ hours but it has no projection after an hour.

    I'm told it's the citrus factor. Orange just doesn't have stamina. After a hour,I know it's on me only by sniffing my skin.

    So what creates sillage?

    I want to enjoy a scent much like I enjoy the aroma of sitting in a patisserie or coffee shop or florist. I want to enjoy the scent without having to snort at my wrist.

    Found this info. You might have some answers here:

    "Sillage has nothing to do with the richness of the composition, however, but rather with the diffusive nature of the materials that go into it. For instance, hedione, fresh floral notes and some types of musk are extremely diffusive and radiant, while retaining an airy, light character.

    Fragrances with a strong sillage include such rich compositions like Guerlain L’Heure Bleue, Lancôme Trésor, and Christian Dior Poison as well as light, ethereal blends like Bulgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert and Christian Dior Eau Sauvage."

    Strong raw materials make big perfumes. If you want to radiate like a hydrogen bomb, you could save a chunk of money by eating a field's worth of garlic and refusing to brush your teeth.

    Some perfumes do & some don't.

    You can either spray more of that perfume and/or refresh during the day.

    Yes, for perfumes that project less, I usually reapply during lunch. It has satisfied my sillage urge for the time being.
