    2 to the chest, maybe a spritz on the wrists. What is nice about the chest is it gets into your fabric and tends to last better. If I am going out to a party, I spray a couple more to the base of my neck.

    Generally, one to the chest and right wrist, two to the left wrist.

    But I've been wearing most of my scents for a while now, and know which ones to double up on or lay low.

    Spiriteuse Double Vanille? No more than two sprays, or I'm a vanilla cloud.
    Chergui? Add two more sprays to the chest. I just like smelling this one.
    Neroli Portofino? Add three sprays, or it's gone too quickly. It doesn't seem to overpower.

    I'm sure there's no universal answer to the original question.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I agree that there are several aspects to take into account when judging how much to wear. Since I would like to maximize the chances to actually smell what I apply, mostly I target the neck/wrists. Wearing under clothes maximizes the chances that some of the fragrance will never enter the air around me that day which seems a waste. Wearing on clothes does run the risk of harming the fabric or staining, but also usually lasts longer--I rarely do this.

    The strength of the fragrance matters of course, less of things that reek and more of things that are subtle would be the general rule. It never hurts to ask someone you trust if you may be overdoing it. I'm pretty sure the size of the bottle does not matter. The spray nozzles vary from bottle to bottle and that makes a bigger difference. Some will douse you in a bucketload while others barely provide a mist. The spray nozzle draws a fixed amount per spray which is not dependent on the length of the tubing to which it is attached.

    Two big sprays on to the chest area, and about one to one and a half sprays distributed around the neck area.
