  2. Re: A lounge just for us "Over sprayers" to discuss our SOTD and how many sprays were needed.

    I did 7 sprays of Keiko Mecheri Taormine today, normally I do 4 as this stuff is potent indeed. I could even taste it! I think I actually did overspray today.
  3. Re: A lounge just for us "Over sprayers" to discuss our SOTD and how many sprays were needed.

    Accidentally spilled at least 2 ml of Nuit de Noel extrait on me. Thank goodness it is a very quiet fragrance on me. I am actually enjoying it to the fullest!
