    Default Any Tips? You spray on more then you should of done!

    Apart from taking another shower is there any other tips or advice on how to reduce the immediate projection?

    I've read that using some unscented deodorant directly where the perfume was applied can help. I haven't tried it myself yet though.

    If you know in advance that you want less projection early on, decant the perfume and dab it rather than spray. You won't get the initial burst, and it'll be easier to dose a more limited amount.

    Spray less then wait a while before you go out.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    I have a three step process.

    1) Moisten a paper towel with rubbing alcohol. Wipe away excess.
    2) Arm & Hammer Unscented Deodorant, apply to areas of application.
    3) Fresh clothes.

    Seconded.

    Another thing you can do is spray a paper towel and dab yourself if you're going out right away.
