  13. Re: Name a scent that smells even better when you overspray it

    It means something different to everyone. For some, that may be anything more than 3 sprays. To others, 6 sprays is normal and "over spraying" might be 10+ sprays.

    Hi there. I agree with the "every fragrance ever" is better oversprayed! In fact, oversprayed shouldn't even be a word! Wonder why it took me a while to see this thread.
