    Default Fantasy request: Which scent would you want stronger? Lighter?

    1. What fragrance(s) do you own, that you wish was stronger?

    2. Which fragrance(s) do you own, that you wish was lighter (weaker)?

    3. Which fragrance(s) do you NOT own, because they are too strong?

    4. Which fragrance(s) do you NOT own, because they are too light (weak)?

    My list:

    1. Purple Water by Asprey; Azuree Soleil EauFraiche by E. Lauder; Concentree D'Orange Verte by Hermes
    2. Neroli by L'Occitane; A la Nuit by Serge Lutens; Guerilla 1 by Comme des Garcons
    3. Marc Jacobs for Men; Kouros by YSL; Silver Rain by La Prairie
    4. L'Eau de L'Artisan by L'Artisan Parfumeur; L' Eau d'Hiver by Frederic Malle; Passage D'Enfer by L'Artisan Parfumeur

    Yours?

    This is from the top of my head:

    1. Bois d'Argent
    2. None - what's the point?
    3. None - no frag is too strong for me!
    4. Richard James, Philosykos, L'Homme Sage, Cuiron Pour Homme, Douce Amère, anything by Hermes and L'Artisan

    I don't know what is too strong. I mean, if something is strong, I just use less.

    Scents that I wish were stronger:

    Kenzo Jungle
    Ralph Lauren Romance
    Monsieur de Givenchy
    Eau de Rochas
    YSL Live Jazz

    Off the top of my head...

    1. What fragrance(s) do you own, that you wish was stronger?
    None (because poor longevity is a dealbreaker for me)

    2. Which fragrance(s) do you own, that you wish was lighter (weaker)?
    None

    3. Which fragrance(s) do you NOT own, because they are too strong?
    Possibly Dior's Eau Noir (but I'm not sure this would make me love it; anyway, I'm usually fine with strong fragrances)

    4. Which fragrance(s) do you NOT own, because they are too light (weak)?
    SMN - Colonia Russa
    L'Artisan - Premier Figuer (or PF Extreme, or Philosykos for that matter)
    MPG - Bahiana (but I'll consider it again NEXT summer)

    I generally wish that all perfumes would come out in extrait-versions, also for men. I don't like heavy-sillage smelling, and the extrait just does the good thing for me: lasts and develops forever, no offending sillage, extremely rich-deep scent whenever you sniff your wrist. I hate when guys have heavy sillage.

    2.) Non.
    3.) Non.
    4.) Voleur De Roses, Bigarade Concentree, Eau Sauvage (I have the Extreme now.)
    - Rich
    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    Ditto Mr. Guerlain.

    Longer, deeper, no offensive after-smell... and develops forever.
    And rich!

    I have always wished Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte was stronger. I know its the nature of the juice and the notes - but honestly, 10 minutes? Why bother.

    On a side note, if anyone has recently purchased a new bottle of eau d'orange verte - have you noticed a difference? I swear they've changed the formula.
