    Yeah, I don't think I have ever broken 6 sprays of anything.

    Usually 4 of Body Kouros, Rochas, JPG, Green Irish Tweed.

    5 Sprays for me. One on neck, chest wrists & back of neck. I dont think this one could be over applied.

    I typically spray between 4-7 sprays depending on the cologne because my skin swallows up scent and I thought I use way too much.... after reading this thread I feel much better about how much I use. LOL

    The most I ever do at one time is 5 (each wrist, base of neck, fingertips to dab back of ears and maybe 1 on my shirt for certain scents.

    I've noticed with Creed MI, and more so SMW, I need this max 5 Plus a few re-application ones in a few hours.

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

    Tobacco Vanille
    Bogart Pour Homme
    Mugler Pure Malt

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

    And perhaps I will enter a new category:

    40-45 sprays
    For CREED's newest Spice and Wood

    Don't take this the wrong way, but your critique about how "weak" Spice and Wood is just took a huge credibility hit!

    Apparently, your nose is on the brink of failure. I have Selection Verte, and 5-10 sprays is MORE than enough from that atomizer. Your need to apply 25-30... hey, it's your world.... but clearly, your definition of weak and strong are FAR different than mine and (as it seems) everyone else on this board.

    Perhaps you should recognize that and hold off on destroying a fragrance because you think it's "weak". It's like my near-deaf uncle who BLARES the television and still asks us to turn it up because he can't hear it.

    It's not the TV, it's YOU! :-)

    Agreed. and i never ever ever want to be "that guy".

    Now, I will re-apply, and that's different. Especially with some CREEDs and their shorter longevity. For example, I only need two sprays of GIT. and after two sprays, people on other floors of the house can smell it before I even come down! However, GIT is also half gone after 2 hours, so one re-charge spray is a good idea.

    but to come out of the gate with anything more than 4 sprays of GIT is just being offensive to others. You are FORCING your fragrance on other people in the same room/building, and that's when you become "that guy" and that's just plain inconsiderate.


    Also, people, remember something about human biology and the nose... it ADJUSTS to a constant smell after a while, and you lose the ability to detect it. This is very common with Aventus, which DOES last 8-10 hours, but people swear it's gone after 1 hour. It's not gone, it's just that the nose attunes to this fragrance very quickly.

    You know what it's like to go into someone's house where they're baking cookies? It smells SOOO good at first. 20 minutes later, take a huge breath through your nose, and you can't tell anything. Cookies are still baking, but your neuron receptors have adjusted.

    Being "that guy" is offensive to others and does our whole community a disservice. It puts a stigma on cologne wearers that we all I'm sure have run into, even if we wear the appropriate amount. Kind of like the assh*le motorcyclist who speeds at 100mph weaving in and out of lanes.... gives all motorcyclists a bad rap.

    I don't understamd why many here place an arbitrary limit of 10 sprays NO MATTER WHAT. For instance, 10 sprays of Eau D'Orange Verte just isn't sufficient enough to let others you meet experience how beautiful a scent it is. 10 sprays and ONLY you or your SO will smell it...no one else...shame.....as it's one of the all time grreatest fresh scents....so ingenious and ahead of it's time (1979)

    My nose isn't broken, on the contrary it's quite good. I'm just cursed to like very light, natural smelling citrus/green scents which lack projection and longevity with a normal application.

    Please apply 25 sprays of Selection Verte and report back. It's no louder than around 7-8 sprays of GIT, or 4-5 sprays of SMW.

    And also please apply 35 sprays of Eau D'Orange Verte some time, and enjoy the compliments you get from others who can actually smell Eau D'Orange Verte lightly from a meter away. My nose isn't broken, on the contrary it's quite good. I'm just cursed to like very light, natural smelling citrus/green scents which lack projection and longevity with a normal application.

    Again when I wear Tobacco Vanille I never wear more than 4 sprays, when i wear Bogart Pour Homme it's generally 2-3 sprays, almost never 4....it's relative.
    Or if I was to wear Original Santal it'd be 3-4 sprays max.
    I think people are overestimating what 35-40 sprays of Eau D'Orange Verte, or what 25-30 sprays of Selection Verte feels like. If you live where you can test them for free, GO DO IT !!!!!!

    It's rather liberating to/for the beauty of weak/light scents.

    I imagine so. That's why I usually wait until I can't even smell it up close on the skin to reapply.

    I've done up to 15 sprays before, but only with Mugler Cologne. The longevity on me is abysmal. Usually no more than 8 with Kenneth Cole Reaction. No more than 6 with anything else. I spray mostly on my torso before putting on my shirt, and only spray one on my neck once my shirt is on...sometimes two.

    no need for me with that scent. Two sprays and I get 10+ hours, it's not that weak as it seems to be

    I know I won't get the same projection, sillage and longevity out of Eau Sauvage, Guerlain's Vetiver, Orange Verte or Extra Vieille as out of Rive Gauche PH or Nicolai's Patchouli Homme and I respect that. I take it that projection, sillage and longevity of any particular scent, to a large extent, were creative choices made by the perfumer (and also intrinsic properties of the notes, i.e. citrus notes will never last as long as amber or oakmoss). I would sort of feel guilty towards the creative genius of Roudnitska if I tried to make Eau Sauvage last and project as much as Kouros by applying 15+ sprays. It's not in Eau Sauvage's DNA to last 10 hours. There is a reason why ES Extrême has never been as popular as the original ES.

    Accepting that some of the scents in your wardrobe will last 4 hours when others will last 24 hours is a major step in understanding the art of fragrance, and actually it gives a lot of relief to the perception of your wardrobe.

    That would probably be Eau d'Hadrien, Annick Goutal. Light Citrus Aromatic fragrance. About 8 sprays, or so.

    I get 10+ hours if I press my nose against my skin haha. Reading through the reviews I don't see anyone talking about that much longevity. Do note that I have oily skin, so I get better longevity than most and STILL need to spray this on fabric. To get ANY projection I really need to put at least 5-6 sprays on. I know Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme has the same issue.

    Dullah, you are one of the best blokes on here, but I really would not like to be around on one of your 30 sprays of Eau De Campagne days!

    Most I spray is 8-10 of Paul Smith for Men, a good coating, because it just wont last (but I do love the way it smells)

    I can only speak about the scents from that list that I know, but 20-25 sprays of MI or Erolfa could surely asphyxiate most small animals within a 15 yard radius.

    I shudder to think what 25 sprays of Erolfa smells like.

    It's 25 out of the leather atomizer, which is smaller sprays.
    Out of the 4 ounce flask, I'd still do about 16-18 sprays.

    Halston Unbound, when I owned it I would do about 8 sprays. IZOD I do a good 6-8 sprays. Diesel Green Masculine, when I owned this I would do up to 15 sprays. But, I think on top of the list is Tommy Bahama Set Sail St Barts, where I've done up to 20 sprays.
