    Question How to check if a perfume is strong and long lasting? HELP!!?

    I recently got 3 perfumes and I want to chose one of them which is strong and long-lasting.

    I opened all of them and used them for a few days but I couldn't tell which one of these scents is the strongest.

    Is there anyway I can test them to see which one is the strongest and long-lasting?

    different ones will last on different people's skin more or less. you have to ask people around you to smell them for you, since your nose will get used to the scent and you'll think it wore off.

    Why don't you say which 3 perfumes they are?

    Wtf? This is a pretty weird question. Why not wear each of them and see for yourself which is strongest?

    Spray them on a paper strip and smell the strip every day. This is how I test a lot of fragrances on longevity. It has poor longevity when you can't smell it any more after a day. It has good longevity when you can still smell it on the strip 8 days later.
    This says nothing about projection and sillage though. That depends on your skin and bodyheat.

    Exactly.

    Start with one spray. If you smell it a half hour later stick with one. If you don't notice it use two next time. I personally think that one to three sprays is sufficient for most fragrances. I have had a couple over the 28 years of wearing fragrance where I used up to five or six but I think some of it had to do with me wearing them for a long time and just got used to the smell.
