    Default I'll tell you what Gendarme's good for...

    Yesterday I wore about 6 sprays of Bond New Haarlem. I received no complaints, but I just about choked myself!

    So, with a fragrance hangover, Gendarme is my choice today. Perfect!!! It's light, non-obtrusive, and smells pretty nice. After the overload, I am relieved to not reek.

    And from now on, 3 shots of New Haarlem will be the rule! It's always a challenge figuring out proper "dosage". I think 3 sprays is a good gourmand rule of thumb.

    I sometimes overspray 'till my eyes tear up and my throat muscles contract, but it's all part of the experience!

    Chuck, I did the same thing myself when I got my New Haarlem decant!

    I had only worn it from a sample vial before, so I was used to dabbing. When I got my decant, I did a left wrist (press to right inner elbow), right wrist (left elbow), two back of the neck, and two chest sprays.

    I loved it, but knew I'd messed up. I got to work and people knew when I was coming, not just went I went by.

    Two is my max for New Haarlem for SURE, now.
