    Default Sillage Heavyweights

    What frags do you have that possess nasty sillage that travels for miles? Mine include:
    1. JPG Le Male
    2. Joop! Pour Homme
    3. D&G Pour Homme
    4. Gucci Envy
    5. Laguna
    6. A*Men which I just bought yesterday

    I'm trying to turn some heads in case you're wondering...

    LOL. Yeah I agree. But sometimes I get the urge to just walk into a night club and bombard everybody with my scent. I'm very introverted by nature but I've had my moments where I like the attention. BTW Chrome has sillage on you? It always stays close to my skin.

    Hmmm... I'm very introverted myself! But I don't get those kinds of urges like you do [smiley=grin.gif]
    Yes! Chrome SCREAMS on me, and I never seem to be able to gag it. I just put on half a spray and anyone less than 10 feet away asks if I am wearing a fragrance.

    Several Guerlain scents can challenge in the sillage department, namely Vetiver, Habit Rouge, and Heritage. Another EDC that projects superbly is Fracas for Men.

    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

    I have to say, most of the time my fiancee has to bury her head in my chest in order to detect that I am wearing anything, even when I have 6-8 spritzes on of some scents.

    S.T. DuPont - Signature (I could imagine this one moving up my arm when I first got it.)
    CM Sandalwood
    Z-14
    KL Homme
    Mr. 7
    Nu EDP
    Pasha
    Miss Dior
    Quorum - Only in the top notes though; the rest is delightlfuly restrained.
    Old Spice
    Obsession for Men
    Heritage EDT

    Scents that are surprisingly light siliage-wise on me but seem to be heavy on others:
    Kouros
    Sung Homme
    [FONT=Book Antiqua]MisterK / Vicomte de K / K[/FONT]
    [FONT=Book Antiqua]Ephemeral Top 5: YSL PH HC, Worth PH, Equipage, Monsieur Rochas HC, Acqua di Gio[/FONT]

    Another agreement. I want everyone to notice my fragrances (that doesn't mean, however, that I put too much on to smell like I bathed in it!).

    A french word. Translation is "that which stays in the air after the passage of someone who is perfumed". Pronounced as see-yage
