    Default Paco Rabanne 1 Million is the sweetest perfume I have used

    The opening is heaven
    How many sprays are enough?

    Umm, depends on your skin chemistry, weather, where you spray, how strong you like your perfume to be and occasion.

    It's a strong one, I personally go for 4-5. Not one of the perfumes that project well on me.

    ^if i did that, people would die.

    On my skin, 3 is max sprays on this guy. I've worn 4 sprays before and could be smelled (this is no exaggeration) 30 feet away outside. This is extremely, extremely potent and projecting on me.

    Agree with above comment. 1 Million is quite potent stuff. 2 or 3 sprays should do the trick.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    One would be ideal. Two if you're going out and really want to be noticed. Anything more than that is offensive.

    "How many sprays" is subjective and depends on many factors, including skin and body chemistry. I have extremely dry skin, for example, and it's literally a bottomless pit that consumes fragrances whole. I can apply 8 sprays of something like A*Men and it is undetectable by those around me (unless I were to spray my clothing directly, which I never do). Others can apply 1 to 2 sprays and have monster all-day detectability and sillage.

    My best advice is trial and error.

    I know this thread is old, but I just came across it searching on google. This is how I use 1 million

    I just got this fragrance about 2 weeks ago and let me say, it is very potent on my skin and I have pretty normal skin. It all depends on what occasion you're using the fragrance for. If you're going out to a club I would probably try 3-4, ONLY because there are a lot of other scents floating around in a club that would drown out anything that isnt strong (the smell of smoke, alcohol, other peoples fragrances etc). 3-4 sprays would project VERY well, but for a scenario like being at a club it would be ok.

    For casual use, 1-2 max. It does ultimately depend on your skin type, but I still wouldnt risk spraying more. It can get very cloying and can get offensive if you spray too much.

    I rather bathe in sugar water than wearing 1 Million.

    1 Million is the sweetest you've used? Damn, when I smelled The Dreamer and Le Male I thought I would surely collapse into a diabetic coma.....

    No, really, at the most I apply 4 sprays. 2 to the wrist, 2 to the neck, rub em together until dry. Pulse points are key. If the cologne is stronger, 2 sprays max.
    SEEKING BOTTLES OF:

    Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
    Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
    Azzaro Aqua
    Gloria by Cacharel

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    I use 3.
    2 on the neck and 1 on the chest. It gets sickly sweet if you use too much, so I recommend you don't do that; as with all fragrances, less is more.

    I'm looking to trade for 1 million, so let me know if anyone has any they don't want or want to swap.
    Its strong stuff, but it grew on me after I smelled it a few times.
    I can see why women would like it in a dance club.

    Perhaps you'd get better results if you re-post this in the Basenotes Market Place Section - Swaps Forum.

    Even by the personal over-sprayer standards, 3-4 sprays are already largely enough. And yes, agreeing that this is one of the sweetest fragrances quite widely and readily available, in fact, on of the sweetest known by the (albeit both very limited) personal standards and experience.
