    Default Minimising projection but maximising longevity

    I dont really want others to smell my scent unless they are *really* close, for me I just like to smell it myself really, but at the same time I have super dry skin which I don't think holds scent that well.

    Any tips on minimising the silage? yeah, I'm guessing the obvious, just spray less. but thought maybe there are some tips like best places to spray?

    also any tips for dry skin to hold scent longer? I've tried unscented lotion after showering but doesn't seem to make much difference.

    Just spray on your chest. 2-3 sprays will be sufficient. Adjust to your own preference.

    I haven't been big on it, but some people swear by spraying on tee shirt under dress shirt.
    Scent seems to last longer on cloth than skin for many of us.

    I don't usually wear tee shirts, so I've toyed with spraying on shirt cuffs and front, but that does tend to project a bit more.

    2 sprays to the stomach work for me if I want to keep the scent all to myself..

    I usually apply perfume to my chest but let it get on my shirt as well. Perfume lasts longer on fabric, as others have said, and wearing perfumes primarily on your chest keeps you from flinging the scent around during street fights and magic tricks and stuff.
