    Up to 8 sprays in the face? That can't be healthy for your skin (and hopefully you don't get any in your eyes). I rarely spray more than once to the chest these days (if the atomizer provides a nicely dispersed and full spray).

    I hope you really meant sprays to the neck...and even then eight sprays is way too much.

    I had to register to reply to this thread but the amount of sprays definitely depends on the fragrance.

    I only spray a fragrance on my neck and chest. I've never thought about spraying my face.

    For something like TdH that seems to last forever on my skin, I can only use one or two sprays on my neck. For my recent purchase of YSL L'Homme; I find myself spraying ~6 sprays as it will disappear on my body in about 4 hours.

    I find myself always starting a new fragrance experience with one spray and adding more each time I use it to judge the cutoff. I tend to prefer less and to keep the scent to myself. Maybe that is why I've never received comments about any fragrances since the people around me probably don't smell it.

    tonysoprano -

    With all due respect, I agree with the posts above. 4-8 sprays to the face seems like it would be overpowering -- and not just for you. Especially of things like Joop, Terre d'Hermes or Polo.

    I apply depending on the sillage/projection of the frag.

    Terre d'Hermes: once to each wrist; and once to the chest/abdomen area - spritzed from about arm's length away.

    Sens et Bois (stays pretty close to the skin): I can do three shots to each wrist and once to the back of the neck.

    Poivre Samarcande (similar to Sens et Bois but with more projection and it can be sneeze-inducing in other folks): a shot to each wrist.

    Feeling Man (a strong frag with a lot of sillage and projection like Polo): one spritz to the back of my neck.

    The only scented thing that goes on my face is shaving soap/cream and aftershave.

    But we're all different. The way you've been doing it may work great for you and that's cool. But it's a way that I've never seen or heard of anyone else doing.

    You didn't literally mean "in my face", did you? Doesn't that sting your skin? Or impair your breathing?

    Anyway, I rarely use more than 3 sprays of any fragrance, because my skin magnifies the scent so much. If a fragrance is particulary "light", I might use up to 4 sprays. I could never use 6 to 8 sprays of Terre d'Hermes, Guerlain Vetiver, Gucci pour homme or Rive Gauche pour homme--without the fumes peeling the wallpaper off the walls everywhere I went...

    That's not a criticism of your choice, I just mean it would never work with my chemistry.

    Default Re: How many sprays??????????????

    I prefer applying a fragrance as far away from my nose as reasonably possible such as on the wrist in order to get a little idea of what my own sillage is like. Sillage is, by definition, a fragrance detected from a distance and it is difficult to be objectiive about one's own sillage if the fragrance is applied to a point on the body which is in close proximity to the nose - such as on the face or neck. Smelling a fragrance in close proximity to the point of application can give a deceptively unbalanced picture (and often more cloying!) of what the sillage will be like. It is the sillage, IMO, where the magic of a good scent lies - and what parfumeurs are interested in. I think one to two sprays suffice. I'm still open to suggestions though.

    1-4 sprays for me. Most frags get 2 sprays, both directed half at my stomach/chest and half at one of my arms. I try to keep it low on my arm so I can smell the fragrance more discreetly. Only fragrance that I use 4 sprays of is Ralph Lauren Safari, which has a tiny and very dispersing spray nozzle.

    way to go Tony !! Im the same 6 - 8 on most frags and twice a day is becoming a regular event .
    I really don't see how just one spray to the chest is enough ... I never will .
    So my advice to you micro squirters is GO FOR IT ..... you hearing this Bigsly !! don't let those trembles stop you .
    If you have say 24 bottles 2.5 oz in your collection they could potentially last you till the year 2112 !!

    Tell them Dimitrios!!
    There are only a few frags in my collection of 49 that get less than 4 sprays on a full wearing.
    I spray L'Air du Desert Marocain only 2-3 times
    I spray Vintage Tabarome only 2-3 times
    I spray Rive Gauche PH 3 times usually....all the rest are fair game for more.

    My skin doesn't magnify scent - it tends to hold on to scents longer than most people which means I get great lasting power but only average or slightly above average sillage.

    For this reason, I usually spray 6-8 times as well, and sometimes more (depending on how long it will be before I have human contact). I'm thinking of Issey Miyake / Mugler Cologne. It usually goes like this:

    4 sprays to the chest (low on the chest)
    1-2 sprays to the undershirt
    2-3 sprays to the neck [i never spray my face!]

    For stronger frags [Millesime Imperial, L'Air Du Desert Marocain], this is cut dramatically:

    2 sprays to the chest
    1-2 sprays to the neck


    I'm with Dimitrios and Jock - I don't understand how you guys think one spray to the chest could ever be enough if you are leaving the house. The only time I do that is right before bed when I'm looking for some extra snuggling from the lady.

    I also generally wait as long as I can for the sprays to the neck as well - if I have a decant or sample I'll bring that with me and spray once or twice right before getting out of the car.

    If I'm wearing short sleeves, I'll spray my elbow pits once each as well.

    I'm not sure I understand your first sentence correctly. You spray further away from your nose, but close to the point of application, in order to acheive better sillage?

    If I've got that right, then I guess I'm a little different. Body sprays are several inches (5-6, 12-15cm) from the skin to get good coverage, and I spray my elbow pits from about 1 inch (2.5 cm) away to get a good strong scent from there.

    I might try to spray closer to my neck in the future.

    I'm in a so-so mood: 7 sprays

    Depends on fragrance for me. Some are so light you need to spray a lot before it´s noticeable and then it go for around 7.

    2 neck
    2 hair
    1 wrist
    2 chest

    This would be for something very light

    a heavier scent would be

    1 neck
    1 wrist
    1 chest

    Exactly Dimitrios! For the most part I say "spray away" - although there are a few where I think less is best.

    It depends on a lot of things - Am I going to a smoky club or to an air-conditioned office, does the nozzle throw 1ml onto me every time (Creed) or only half of that (Floris) and is it a strong fragrance or not.
    I'd say each to their own but you should also take into account those around you. What if the guy you sit next to doesn't like Terre d'Hermes? (Apparently these people do exist) and you've got 8 sprays on. I'd say that's bordering on the anti-social.

    For me, daytime is one or two sprays (one to neck, maybe one to chest) and evening is three. I can still smell all my fragrances hours later so that seems to be enough for me. I get looks/ comments from people within 5 feet of me but rarely from people further away which is just the way I like it.

    I made it very clear in the office that if anybody hates the thing I´m wearing to say so, or if they feel its too strong.

    There was only one guy who ever said he didn´t like it but that is because he disliked any un natural scent, as in...don´t even shower with shampoo because it might smell flowery or fruity.

    He smelled of BO. The other people at work always go snif snif ´who smells good!?´ Today someone said I was smelling good enough to lick.

    Otherwise I agree with jonnyt, if you know you are going to be somewhere extremely warm then you tone it down, also depending how much something sprays on you etc.

    Regarding people around you, just tell them that you are trying out something new and if they hate it to tell you. I think it saves a lot of problems if they know it´s allright to say something and that they dont have to suffer in silence.

    Yes because how can we hate BO, it´s natural and norma it´s how humans are suppose to smell. I mean he isn´t a flower so why smell like one.

    He isn´t a decaying corpse balsemed in onionsand baked with paramzan in an oven either. But that is how I describe how he smells.

    Flattering isn´t it?

    So yes, when I get into the office sometimes, wearing and spreading perfume, I get messages saying : THANK YOU!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU....

    We have sent mails around telling people to wear deodorant when it gets very hot, but nothing is done about it. And the worst offenders have moved to a different location. My headaches went down dramatically because of it and I dared to breathe in the entire department..and not just in certain places (wherever they werent).

    6 to 8 sprays under my clothes works for me. Except for some of the older Boss scents, where 4 sprays delivers as much volume as 6 sprays from everyone else's bottles.

    It's always important to remember that "More is more" and "Less is less". I know that this message does not go down well with Scent Conservationists who feel that scents are a finite and scarce resource which should be preserved for future generations, and who have thus been propogating the "Less is more" message.

    Sorry about that clumsy & ambiguous sentence. What I was essentially trying to suggest (based on my own experience with fragrances) is that the wearer of the fragrance can enjoy his or her own sillage more if the place where the fragrance goes on the body (spraying or splashing) is as far away from the nose as practicably possible. In another thread, spraying a fragrance behind the knees was discussed as a possibility for the same reason. That said, I wouldn't suggest applying the fragrance lower than the knees. Spraying a fragrance on the neck or face is too close to one's own nose IMHO. Hope that made a little better sense. (I just re-edited that original "statement" )

    I've read reviews of "power frags" in which the person says that it's too powerful, but might be good for an older guy who's sense of smell is starting to fade. As I get older, though, I find my sense of smell getting better, not worse.

    And Dimitrios is completely wrong here. I want my frags to last at least until 2020, not 2112 !

    Today I was working (very, very closely) with a computer nerd. He smelled of slight hints of berry and coffee. I thought it must be from a previous wearing that was stuck on his shirt, since the fragrance smelled so deep in the dry down. He also had a breathtaking rose smell on himself. And in the burning heat of day, every time I smell him, I get taken to a green garden on a cool, breezy summer day.

    That's unlike me, I often wear scents with 1-2 sprays, and still get compliments or at least visible reactions.

    Maybe due to the fact that different cultures and societies have different taste for the scent they smell. In my school, it seems like I'm the only person use fragrance, and on daily basis.

    I usually do 4 sprays to each arm and 8 sprays to the chest, then apply a layer of lotion, then another 4 sprays to each arm and 8 sprays to the chest. So, 32 sprays total. I did this with Angel this morning.

    My cubicle buddy didn't notice it and she would have said something if I was too strong.

    The only cologne I can't do this with is Sung. I did half as many sprays with that and she told me she could smell me when she walked in the office.

    Edit: Original Polo is another cologne I can't do this with.

    My cubicle buddy didn't notice it and she would have said something if I was too strong.

    The only cologne I can't do this with is Sung. I did half as many sprays with that and she told me she could smell me when she walked in the office.
    I'm confused because I'm not detecting sarcasm in this post.

    I'm not being sarcastic. For some reason, my skin loves to eat up fragrances.

    I do the same thing. I like people within my personal space to be able to smell it. I don't want to be the person who people can smell after I leave the room...or know I coming before I enter.

    Dude, nobody's skin can consume 32 sprays worth of A*Men. All that Isobutavan, it's a f#@king huge molecule. Even west africans pores aren't large enough to devour A*Men. 32 sprays of A*Men must be hilariously plastic/sweet. LOL That's alright though, have at it.

    It's barely noticeable on me. After an hour or so, I have to put my arm right up to my face to smell it.

    My take on the "how many sprays" is more in line with the conservative group. That is one to four sprays. Two sprays probably being the norm. I think some scents are meant to be light and close to the body. When overspraying I believe it ruins the development from top to base. Feels like the scent is pooling up on the skin and has nowhere to go. Rule of thumb for me has always been if I can smell the fragrance a half hour to an hour later then I probably put on enough. Eventually we will become used to the scent and not notice it but others probably will when in our personal space. Regards to application points I keep the fragrance below the collar bone on the upper chest. Never spray on the front of the neck. Sometimes a spritz on the back of the neck. And in the crook of the elbow or knee. I never spray on my wrists as I find that it ruins the aroma of my food and drink and there are a lot of other good smells around us that we should enjoy.

    This could be a forum in itself. Have a thread for different frags and folks can post how they spray it.

    Just wondering, did you once try to just spray like 2-3 sprays away enough from nose (like just chest and wrist) and see if you still can smell it ? Because with 32 sprays, I totally believe you when you say you can't smell it anymore, I think your nose is saturated by your fragrance. But hey I don't criticize, do it the way you like it !

    Personally, the more I use, the less longer I smell it myself, and since it's for my own enjoyment first, I stick to 1-2 sprays on chest and 1 on hair for work. If I'm going out, I'll add 1 more behind the neck and 1 on wrist or inner elbow.
    It's maybe not enough for some folks, but when you see some people staying around you deeply breathing, even without compliment I know I'm noticed.

    Nice. I wonder what happens if you meet in a closed place with someone with the same philantrop mentality.
