    I know you're not that bad compared to some, but I wore 1 spray of Rive Gauche on the neck and one on the chest, and thought I was poisoning people.

    Default Which scent do you spray the most in one sitting? The least?

    Another pair is John Varvatos and Rive Gauche.

    I spray Varvatos 5 times: each wrist, under each ear, and the chest.
    Rive Gauche twice: one to the chest, one to the wrist. Then I dab the wrist on my neck.

    Horribly light stuff like Costes, Eau Sauvage et al.

    10 sprays minimum, 4 to chest, 4 to tummy, one spray each on my upper palms. These scents last maybe upto 4 hours then.

    Even the "stronger" frags, in fact any frag that I truly like, but, oddly or not, on me Rive Gauche or Gucci Envy for Men last quite short, so I tend to apply 8+ sprays, the least

    It's interesting that you mention Rive Gauche. One spray to the neck and I feel like I'm suffocating people - but it only lasts about an hour on me! It becomes really gentle, like baby powder.

    While I enjoy Kouros 'in moderation,' any more than two spays (spread around) and I feel as though I risk smelling like a ripe, unwashed professional athlete. Kouros = 2 sprays max! On the other hand, I can go with 10 sprays of the rather lovely but extremely light Captain Molyneux.

    Timaru....this is one of those few forums where inquires are not so esoteric that they can not be repeated. I agree with you that one should research the threads that have previously been posted before posting a similar one, however, I will state that if one does a time-series analysis of threads here at Basenotes over the past 4 years, one will find that there are numerous duplications of content. While by no means being critical of your observations that threads should not be arbitrarily repeated, I think that you will most likely agree that a topic may be repeated in an acceptable fashion 'if' the author is a bit creative and makes an overt attempt to fashion the thread in a new and fresh manner. This is not a nuclear engineering forum, and it is therefore subject to some repetition of content. I very much respect you, timaru, and there is no offense intended.

    Most certainly none taken Let me say this first, I hope noone took this the wrong way! It wasnt my intention to order "spray" , whom I want to welcome by the way, not to post anything thats remotely been discussed over the last decade or so. I merely wanted to mention that the search button often bring up threads discussing nearly the same topic from like a day ago or so and I for one tend to value one long (possibly even revived one or two times) and informative thread more than 10 short ones. Its a board and everyone should obviously be able to ask and say anything he wants but that doesnt mean threads should became shorter and less dense.

    But hey, spray, sure post about everything that catches your interest. I'm not one pointing fingers at anybody, I just wanted to say "Hey, if your interested in that question, this might give you some answers beforehand".

    I hope nobody'd been offended.

    Apres l'Ondee- the airy ethereal nature of my favourite scent makes at least 10 sprays necessary. Although I think that is one of the things that makes me love it so much...I like a perfume that makes me try to love it or that plays hard to get

    I tend to need more sprays of the Annick Goutals I like, especially Heure Exquise edt, Mandragore edt, and then eau d'Hadrien -- 4+. Any cologne - like Guerlain Eau Imperial, Eau de Guerlain, and even Chanel eau de Cologne deserve many sprays, 7+! And I like about 3-4 good sprays of YSL Cinema and Chanel No 5 Eau Premier as they are such sunny, happy fragrances.

    I bought the original Opium for men EDT for CHEAP on Amazon. It's funny, I won't buy a fragrance if it's over $20-40 anymore. I think that there are so many great scents in that range that I will never get to try in two lifetimes.

    Most: Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte. When I wear it, I bathe in it. Ten or fifteen sprays is not too much if I'm staying in and want to just enjoy the smell. I go through several bottles a year.

    Average: six sprays. Two left wrist, three chest, one right wrist. Don't know how or why I began this convention.

    Least: Musc Ravageur. One to my left wrist, one to the chest, and one to the right wrist. My skin soaks it up, but I am very wary of overapplication of this one.

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed

    Strangely I spray everything about 5 times regardless of what it is. The lighter scents and those with lower durability catch my attention for use when I'm wanting something lighter or not as lasting on purpose. For example, during a busy work day when I am meeting with a mixed bag of groups of people I haven't met. It's just part of how I classify scents for time of day and day of week.

    +1. Kouros is great with not only few sprays, but distant sprays or walkthrough mist.

    Sung Homme is another one I try to avoid spraying too directly on skin.

    Another point is that atomizers vary. Some feebly cough out a delicate mist; others blast like a fire hose.
    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
