    Really, you can barely smell it? I use two sprays max and get really strong sillage. Any chance that you're a bit anosmic today for some reason?

    I used a sample roll on vial from a basenoter, mine haven't arrived yet. I do remember the sample that i got from them being on the strong side, but i thought that was because the sample vial had leaked.

    I think you'll have to test it for yourself but I don't consider it that strong. I go with my usual 4-6 including neck and wrist. I don't care about sillage; I just enjoy smelling my fragrance myself during the day.

    It's definitely strong. 1-2 sprays should suffice.
    Rare, vintage, and niche off-site sales.

    As everything else in perfumery, 'one spray' is not really the same from bottle to bottle or finger to finger. But 'moderate' application seems to be absolutely sufficient for many hours. It's a 'light' fragrance by the nature of its components but quite persistent. Like Guerlains Vetiver, or YSL Live Jazz it seems to come and go during the course of the day. I am not sure if I make a big impression on others with these, but if they notice my cologne at all - who would feel molested by 'fresh' or minimally spicy in the summer?

    If I would want to draw attention (without getting personal) I would choose different fragrances.

    ah ah ah ha!

    But seriously you shouldn't need more than 5 or 6 tops, that sh!t is strong.
