I have VERY dry skin to the degree that the 2-8 sprays most people say is more than enough for them, on me is gone and undetectable by anyone inside of an hour. I have tested this several times over the years with various family, friends and work colleagues. There are very few exceptions to this (I can do 4 sprays of VC&A Pour Homme and it will last and project all day), but as a rule I don't generally use less than 12 or so sprays because otherwise frags would be a pointless hobby for me, akin to just splashing on cold water. In fact for most things closer to 20 sprays would be the average for me. Sounds a lot to most people, but I've experimented long enough to know how frags work (or don't) on my skin. 20 sprays on my skin tends to work the same as half a dozen or so on others.

    So yeah - everyone's mileage varies.
    Yeah! finally I got someone spray for 20 sprays! : D. (Dont tell anyone, 12 is my minimum spray, maximum maybe 30! Haha.. joking)

    Emmm, maybe i have same problem like u.. not because of weather...

    SMH People really have a difficult time judging things such as sillage/longevity it seems. 2 sprays to the chest underneath clothes, during the hottest weather, and I project well, get longevity of well over 6 hours (even with MI), and get regular compliments and can still smell my fragrance well (plus I have dry skin). It's really not that hard of an issue to tackle, but I think people overthink it too often.

    well, heat really makes the perfume burn faster. so while you need less sprays to be reasonably stinky, the stink goes away faster as well.
    some people think cranking the volume to 12 sprays results in more sustain, but it's possibly just a much louder version of the same thing.

    humidity should make the scent last longer.

    Yes, I could certainly understand heat, making a frag disappear quicker, but not humidity. The fact that the air is humid, means the air is already saturated, and cannot take on any more substance. In humid weather, the evaporation of the fragrance should be greatly reduced.

    so heat = more projection but a faster burn; humidity = less evaporation and therefore more longevity but less projection? so a hot and humid climate is actually the best of both worlds it seems

    depending on skin chemistry some people need more sprays..like more me i need around 3-4 sprays on my skin for stuff like M7 and Heritage and around 6 for lighter stuffs like bulgari aqua marine. There isnt really a hard and fast rule to this or a set one.

    Cool Re: ASIANS: How do you spray your fragrance?

    And I second matthewfoo's approach. Reapplication works much better than heavy application in the somewhat misguided hope of making a fragrance last longer.
    Agree 100% esp. about neck = olfactory fatigue.
    Women can get away with it on the back of their necks. Scent flows upwards and if they want male attention it's not a bad idea, as we're taller.

    However if she sprays the sides of the neck in the 'hot spot' under the ears prior to a date; though she may get olfactory fatigue, watch out! Odds are she seriously means business

    Or the worst, if you sit on a crowded bus with someone with less than exemplary hygiene
    Back in Cuba, the usual routine was to take two showers daily.
    And go with Bay Rum or Limes or such.
    Is this not the case in tropical climates around the globe?

    Here in the desert heat of Southern C.A. Evaporation is the only problem. I'm not sure about powerhouses in humid climates but powerhouses that are NOT sweet work great in the desert.

    No, never try 12 sprays at once.
    Myself probably 6 sprays most would be more than enough..

    Never say Never. If 12 sprays works for you (i.e., makes you happy, doesn't make your partner or your boss, secretary run away, doesn't give your cat a sneezing fit)... GO FOR IT!
    And vary it and note the differences too...!

    Me personally I've always been a big amount kind of guy when it comes to fragrance.
    I blanche when others try to prescribe to me, "Spray and walk into it..."
    Good grief ....

    The only time I did regret was OD'ing on too much Opium Pour Homme eau de parfum.
    Got a massive headache and the friend who was watching the movie with me got one too...

    you live and learn !

    I did 16 sprays of Montale's Musk to Musk today. I survived -- and others around me did, too.

    They figured out the trick of breathing through the mouth? But Musk to Musk is one of my favorites btw.

    GIT has 0 longevity so 12 sprays is very appropriate, assuming they don't all come at the same time. Once every hour for 12 hours seems legit.
