    Default Number of sprays. What's your record?

    Mine was MPG Parfum d'Habit, 12 sprays, sprayed all over upper body. It was The International Compliment Day for me. Next comes Polo Double Black with 10 sprays.

    I once knocked 'em dead with Zino Davidoff. Don't recall the exact number of sprays, but it was a lot!

    I bought a bottle of Hugo Boss Soul on eBay once, which must be a dupe. I'm pretty sure 'bout that.

    For when it arrived I gave myself two sprays, could smell it for 10 seconds after which it was just like -poef- gone! So I gave myself some more sprays, five, ten, fifteen... Nada!

    Now I know Soul is not the strongest scent around, but this was just ridiculous. Hate to get burned like this.

    My record is 8 sprays of Bois de Cedrat.

    However, if I take into account how many times I reapply a perfume during the day, the record would be much higher, probably 20 or 25 sprays of Cedrat, and of Extra Vieille.

    Default Re: Number of sprays. What's your record?

    30 sprays... (all over the body) 2 rounds of 15 sprays with 10 mins in between (90mins before im due out the door)

    I only do this routine with D&Gph and Gucci Envy

    I ALWAYS receive compliments when im out .. Sounds a lot..But it lasts me well until 3am

    Try it.. You might surprise yourself!!!!

    Id never attempt this during the day.. or with anything such as M7 OR Kouros

    Daytime.. I use 3 sprays of just about anything

    10-12 with Le Male when I first started wearing cologne again 4 months ago. I pretty much ended up choking myself out, but at least people can finally smell it. LOL. I guess that was my long dark road towards the first fragrance I've ever hated after loving it the first 5-6 times I wore it.

    12 Le Male sprays make you the winner.. until somebody walks in with 15 Joope Homme sprays. Anyone? Anyone?

    Number of sprays? Not sure but:

    8ml of Kouros
    1.5ml of Yatagan
    ~10ml of Iquitos

    I can be clumsy at times.

    In order to get any kind of longevity from Jacomo Rouge, I used 5 sprays on the same spot, but it worked great.

    I usually do a good 15 before leaving the house in the morning. Sometimes more than others. With Kouros I will only go about 9 sprays though.

    6 strategically placed sprays of Bois d'Orage when I wear it. Everything else 2-4 sprays.

    15-18, sprays of what fragrance? I'm curious.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    I'm sure I have done twenty or more of classic eaux de cologne on occasions. Probably also another ten a few minutes later.

    I have sprayed Tabarome Millesime about ten times (or possibly more, ahem) under a heavy suit, shirt, tie etc.

    I have sprayed about six sprays of Bois du Portugal once. That felt bad.

    Most days two or three.

    12 to 15 sprays of Marc Jacobs takes the cake. I really love this fragrance, especially the coconut note, but there is NO sillage whatsoever. Or longevity for that matter. Whenever I wear this I always carry around with me some sample sprays to refresh with. There should be an EDP version. Or the ever-so-popular "Intense" version.

    I've done about 6 sprays of Envy and 6 sprays of L'Eau d'Issey...both times I felt like it was overpowering when I've gone into a confined space such as a car.

    i dont have anything 'explosive' in my wardrobe so i guess thats why i can get away with going heavy...

    the heaviest are probably Body kouros(i'd do 10-12 sprays) Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin(12-14) and Fleur De Male(4-5)....platinum egoiste(7-9).

    Musc Ravageur(i'd do 15-18 sprays easily)....same goes for Creeds GIT,SMW, Erolfa, OS,
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.

    You've got to be kidding - 15 sprays of The Ravageur? Wow...what was your application method?

  26. #26

    Default Re: Number of sprays. What's your record?

    I do 5-6 at most with my weak scents, Cologne Blanche being one, it stays very close to the skin. Second place is Voleur De Roses with 4-5 sprays, and I usually use 2-3 sprays with things like Tuscan Leather, Rose 31, Black Aoud, Chergui, etc....

    I have a tiny less than 20 bottle collection and it's filled with typical sillage monsters. The most I've ever done was with Metal Jeans from Versace when I owned it, can't remember how many, but easily over 10 sprays for sure. I get 2-3 hours max with it.

    Yep, that's my usual amount of sprays for most fragrances too.

    But 15 spray's, and in general, come on, guys, you can't be serious.

    Usually I only go with about 3 or 4 of any fragrance, but I did 10 sprays of A*Men, all of which were under a heavy sweater. It was the heart of winter and it smelled pretty fantastic.

    Others were 6-7 of M7, Guerlain Vetiver, and Bois du Portugal. Nice experiences all.

    Bvlgari PH - I've done around 15 and it finally reached a good level for me.

    CdG Man 2 - probably 8 sprays minimum, and 10 seems best. (Two on each wrist, 4 to the chest, two to the neck)

    Tabarome Millesime - easily can spray up to 10 times without it becoming overbearing.

    always just 1 or 2. if people comment on my fragrance, even as a compliment, i take it as i'm wearing too much. i only want people to notice if they're a few inches away from me.
