    Default What fragrance do you use the most sprays of when your applying, and how many sprays?

    Out of all my fragrances, id prolly say I use the most sprays with Dolce and Gabbana The One. Its not that it has bad projection and longevity on me(surprisingly, it has great projection and longevity on me), but i find it to be my most inoffensive and wearable scent.

    I go three on the kneck, two on the chest, one of each wrist

    which one is it for u? and how many sprays

    35-40 sprays:
    Hermes Eau D'Orange Verte
    PDN Cologne Sologne

    30-35 sprays:
    Penhaligon's EDC anthology
    R&G Extra Vieille
    Sisley Eau De Campagne

    25-30 sprays:
    CREED Selection Verte

    20-25 sprays:
    Hermes Concentre D'Orange verte

    In contrast, I will not wear more than 4 sprays of these:

    Had to include that just so people wouldn't get the wrong idea.

    wow...Only once or twice have I broken the 10-spray mark. I'm rarely over six...How do you do it? I'm so self-conscious about going overboard. Your post is somewhat inspiring...lol.


    The most sprays I use for my current line-up is 6: Versace Dreamer and Carolina Herrera Chic. I become anosmic to both far too quickly.

    Default Re: What fragrance do you use the most sprays of when your applying??

    John Varvatos and John Varvatos Vintage. Never bothered to count how many, I just spray until it projects a bit for me. I think it usually ends up being about 10 sprays then a few extra sprays every 3 hours or so.

    Default Re: What fragrance do you use the most sprays of when your applying??

    Respect DULLAH!

    I'm quite the opposite I guess. I usually do 2-3 sprays, one or two on neck and one on wrist or the back of my hand, depending on clothing. With Guerlain's Imperiale I go absolutely crazy. That is, about 5 sprays.

    Default Re: What fragrance do you use the most sprays of when your applying??

    Holy moses... 25 sprays of anything would feel like I've taken a second shower or something. Wow.

    My most would be John Varvatos Artisan or Armani Mania Summer at 5 sprays. My body chemistry tends to amplify most scents but these two.

    Dullah, I read somewhere else that you don't apply fragrances to your skin, but rather your clothes?

    Is this correct? I suspect this would go some way to explaining the high number. Peoples astonished reactions are probably more so because they're imagining you're spraying on your skin.

    Well for perfect instance, 40 sprays of Hermes EAU d'Orange Verte is the sillage equivalent of 6 sprays of Versace Dreamer. Dreamer is strong.

    It's not that I'm some crazy sillage beast (mostly), it's just that these particular scents in my wardrobe need such heavy applications to be felt from more than 24" away.

    For another example, L'Anarchiste I only use 5-6 sprays, never more, Abercrombie Fierce I use 4-5, No.88 I use 5 sprays, Green Irish Tweed generally 9 or 10...Green Valley 12-14...etc.

    I just use a sliding scale that adjusts to any particular scent's strength....whatever application it takes to make every fragrance in my wardrobe have a similar level of presence.

    Or even worse with splash applications...
    ...on days when I wear 4711 or Duru / PEREJA Limon Kolonyasi, I might splash on the same amount that would be equivalent to 80 sprays....because these are very fleeting scents.

    Yes, I spray mostly on clothing. Although sometimes, if i choose a very strong scent, and I dislike the topnotes alot, but love the drydown, I will spray on the skin, so it dries down rapidly. And I always test last on skin, after all else. But i try to avoid spraying on skin as often as possible, and instead use oil based accompaniments specific to each fragrance in my wardrobe.

    And No, the inverse actually. the reason I will spray on clothes is part for well-being, and mostly to extend the life of volatile topnotes. For instance, if I spray Orange Verte all on my skin, no matter how many sprays, i will have mostly moss and Patchouli in an hour, whereas on Fabric, the citrus lasts and lasts. Same with MI, on my skin, the beautiful citrus/melon vanishes quick in sub-80'F weather, leaving me only with iris and Palm sap, and a little taste of fruit. But on clothing, with 20 sprays, the topnotes are still there in good strength much later in the day.

    And sometimes I'll bring along a 5ml or 10ml decant in the pocket to refresh before meeting a new girl. i still haven't yet made one of these for each of my favorites, but thanks to this thread, I am soon to do so!

    20+ sprays of Erolfa? Damn.. that's obscene.

    I maintain that anything more than 10 sprays is definitely overkill, and only rarely would one need to go above 5. I want other people to smell my scent but I don't want to be offensive. 10+ sprays is the equivalent of those kids who have their subs blaring so loudly that their car rattles and any and every nuance of the music is lost - swallowed up in the bass abyss.

    I sometimes use 4 sprays of Varvatos Artisan, Givenchy Play, Bois de Turquie, and Romance Silver, but for most scents 2 sprays, occasionally 3, suffice. I find that if I overapply a scent it becomes annoying to me, regardless of what others think.

    Despite - or rather, because of - my modest application method, I can smell every single scent I own for at least 6 hours, usually 8-10 or more.

    you might wanna try Xeryus Rouge by Givenchy. Two sprays are enough and longevity and sillage are awesome. I'm not saying these fragrances are the same, but they truly share a vibe to my nose.

    Usually 2 sprays: one on the neck, one on the wrist. The fragrances that needs more than 2 sprays are Bleu de Chanel (4 sprays) and Pour Monsieur (3 sprays).

    Gucci Pour Homme II. I usually spray it around 7-8 times. I also bring a decant to reapply if need be. Usually I'll spray it on clothing, very close up so that it will stay for awhile.

    Burberry London for Men : 10 sprays

    Burberry London for Men mixed (not layered) with L'Anarchiste: 5 sprays

    Do you think the amount we spray is related to how well we smell the fragrance? Perhaps there are times when we experience anosmia and spray more, despite the fact that others smell us (the fragrance) fine.

    If 1 spray is, say, 0.05 ml then 80 sprays is equivalent to 4 ml. That's alot of perfume. Holy $hit.
