the general consensus is that projection is poor.
that said, i still love it & wear it to short occasions our casually at home.
To me, longevity is much more important than projection. Always has been and always will be. I wear scents for myself, not for others, so if I can still smell what I'm wearing after 10 hours or more, but others can't, I'm fine with that.
Wore Lumiere Noire again and it seems to be a different story. Applied it around 6pm last night and as of noon, I can still smell it faintly on my wrists. It seemed to vanish and then come back.
Also, on the subject of longevity/projection, I've read so many people say that Frapin 1270 is terrible on both counts, but I've found the complete opposite. There are few scents where I notice the smell like a cloud around me quite as much as this one and its still going strong on my wrists the next day. Look like I got lucky with my skin type on that one and I'm glad as its incredible stuff!
