    Re: A*Men / Angel men - method of application

    A light application works well for me, a heavier dose, not so much. It is overpowering to me, and to others I fear, if applied too strongly. One spray from a distance to the chest for me.

    This one lasts 8+ hrs on me with no problem close to my skin, decent sillage but not on the strong end of the scale.
