I have found that it is best to spray this fragrance on skin that is exposed to the open air, such as my arm when I am wearing a short sleeved shirt. I tried it once on my chest, and I thought the fragrance didn't have a chance to bloom sufficiently because it was kind of smothered by my shirt. Frankly, I have never tried the EDT version, so I cannot comment on that. I tried the EDP version and loved it, and have just stayed with that. For more commentary on what Jaipur Homme is like, I couldn't possibly improve on the many wonderful reviews by our fellow Basenoters in the BN directory:

    Here is a story about how I learned about Boucheron Jaipur Homme from my brother:
    Thanks!! Exactly what I was hoping to find out. Much appreciated

    Aha, a perfect alibi for my 1000th post

    This can be considered as a summary of what I've learned as a Basenoter over the past year (well, actually a bit more than one year). So in no particular order, this is the list of fragrances which I found and came to appreciate through this wonderful forum.
