    Default Sillage monsters and sillage wimps. Best and worst.

    What frag has monster sillage where 1 spray is even too much?

    On the opposite end of the spectrum, which frag takes a whole bottle to get results?

    Off the top of my head, some of the biggest sillage monsters are Montale Patchouli Leaves, Mazzolari Lui, YSL M7, and Profumum Dulcis et Fundo.

    The worst that come to mind are Davidoff Adventure and Givenchy Pi Neo, (well, almost every 2008 male designer release). There are some fragrances that have low sillage because they are designed to be skin scents and not to have a lot of sillage (Malle Dans Tes Bra and Lostmarch Lann-Ael)

    You know what is strange I wore M7 today two sprays, and no one barely notice it at all. I smelled it but had to put my wrist right to my nose.

    I was in the car and asked they said they wondered if i even put anything on today


    First time i actaully asked anybody since I got M7 so i guess I need to use more then 2 sprays.

    Nobody has yet mentioned YSL Body Kouros, Sillage Beat extraordinaire???

    Two sillage wimps are also two of my all-time favorites... Helmut Lang Cuiron and Helmut Land EdC. Of course, I think the lack of sillage is on-purpose, but still...

    Black Aoud (very strong, and you can smell it across the room)

    CdG Avignon (very strong, but only if you get your nose right in it)

    Rochas Lui (I could use 10 spritz of this and it would still be mild)

    Hascish Homme will permeate everything within a 15 foot radius.
    Opium EDP can be EASILY overapplied
    M7 likewise.
    Basala and Montale Black Aoud will freight train unsuspecting civilians.

    Weakest EDT I've come across this year was Aramis Tuscany. It smelled fine and then gone in 20 minutes after HEAVY sprays.

    you can solve the EDC sillage problems, by buying the EDP, which has amazing sillage and longetivity!

    funny that i think Cuiron actually has great sillage and longetivity! it lasts for a good 12 hours solid on me!

    Of what I've owned...

    I find Aramis, Hugo Dark Blue, RL Safari, Cubano Gold, Azzaro Pure Vetiver and Dunhill Desire project very well, and can be over-applied easily.

    I find Polo Double Black, Corduroy, and RL Romance Silver to be lacking in the strength department.

    The four sillage champions, hands down: Polo, Joop!, Calvin (the Eighties original) and Kouros.

    Other sillage monsters include (but are by no means limited to) Bois d' Ombrie by Eau d'Italie, Monsieur Musk by Houbigant/Dana, Mazzolari Lui by Mazzolari, Yang by Jacques Fath, 1-12 by Halston, Devin by Aramis, Eternity for Men by Calvin Klein, Jacomo de Jacomo by Jacomo, L'Eau d'Issey by Issey Miyake, Jacomo Rouge by Jacomo, Miel de Bois by Serge Lutens, Azzaro pour Homme by Azzaro, Patou pour Homme by Jean Patou, Versailles pour Homme by Jean Desprez, America by Perry Ellis, Bogart pour Homme, Quorum by Puig, Body Kouros by Yves St. Laurent, Intense Euphoria by Calvin Klein, Basala by Shiseido, Obsession for Men by Calvin Klein, Aramis by Aramis, Vetiver by Guerlain (the original), M7 by Yves St. Laurent, Perry Ellis for Men (the original), Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme by Dolce & Gabbana, Patchouli Leaves by Montale, Chemistry by Clinique, Lauder for Men, Carlo Corinto pour Homme, Black Aoud by Montale, Aramis 900 by Aramis, Portfolio by Perry Ellis, Catalyst for Men by Halston, Paul Sebastian for Men by Paul Sebastian (and really any PS fragrance), Bois de Portugal by Creed and New York by Patricia de Nicolaï.

    I can barely get any sillage at all out of bay rum (almost any kind, truth be told), Eau du Coq and other old fashioned shaving lotions/toilet waters. Eau Sauvage, Perry Ellis White and Bulgari pour Homme can all be fairly wimpy in terms of sillage.

    My vote for a sillage wimp goes to Bulgari PH. No matter how much I apply, nobody around seems to be able to smell it (though I can smell it, so I know it's there)... well, too bad for them!

    Godzilla: Carlo Corinto. Outdoes even Jacomo de Jacomo and Quorum. Guaranteed to get frags banned from your workplace, get you fired, or kill a bloodhound at ten paces. Not bad smelling really, just very strong.

    Bambi: Dunhill D. A boring "gentleman's" citrus that outsnoozes most boring, generic acquas in its vanishing act. Sad. Alfred goes mod and falls into lemon pledge.

    You get great sillage with them along with some defects
    Angel Men : you must hide during the 1st hour
    Bogart PH: Too strong, it should be toned down
    Body Kouros : the projection doesn't last like the other two

    For the sillage monster, I would plump for the sawn-off shotgun that is Paco Rabanne
