    Default What is/are your application method(s)?

    Maybe you only have 1, or a specific method for work, a date, season, or even fragrance, etc.. I currently only really have 3 I use no matter the fragrance.

    Date/special occasion: 1 spray on each side of the neck, 1 on the chest and sometimes 1 on left wrist and dab my right wrist (only reason is so I can smell it from time to time).

    Any occasion/work: 1 spray on the chest and 1 at the base of my neck or just 1 spray at the base of my neck.

    I go pretty light with my fragrances. 4 sprays is my max. I've also been experimenting with different applications to switch it up a bit.

    Almost always 4 sprays: one on each side of the neck and 2 to the chest.

    Two sprays to each side of the neck, two sprays to each pectoral muscle, two to the middle of the chest, two sprays to the crook of each elbow.

  12. #12

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    11 to 13 sprays per default.
    3 to each sleeve, 3 to neck, 3 to chest. And if I really like a perfume then I'll add two sprays to each bare arm and a little to my forefinger which I'll apply to the back of my ears towards my lobes and a touch to the tip of my nose.

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    Nice methods everyone. For the guys that do multiple to the chest, do you do multiple sprays at one spot or move the spray around?

  14. #14

    Default

    6 is my max 1 is the minimal. My neck is the first priority, if I spray my chest I always do 2 and if I go up to 6 both inner elbows and if I do 1 spray it will be the middle of my neck.

    Cmax...

  15. #15

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    Either spray or splash (depending on the fragrance bottle and its dispensing mechanism) on neck, chest and-or pulse points behind the ear, more infrequently, even wrists, back of my neck and hair, in extremely variable amounts from one application to the another

    I do one spray over each pectoral muscle. The other one goes on the upper chest right under the neck.

    Spread around obviously. For a 3D silage effect. Lol

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    For club - I douse myself head (bald), back of neck, front of neck, each arm pit, arm and wrist - so 7 to 8 sprays.. even when I am wearing powerhouses. I like to make a big obnoxious statement

  19. #19

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    I don't really care about the seasons, but I do mind the temperature. If it is more then 20 degrees Celsius outside I use 1 spray minimum and 4 sprays max (from what I have). If it is colder I use 2 sprays minimum and 6 sprays max.
    I only spray on the neck and chest. Example: 2 sprays=1 one the neck, 1 on the chest.
    When I wear colognes I like to be sure that people can smell it. Otherwise, I get the feeling that I am wasting the juice and also my money.
    On a date, I obviously don't use tons of fragrance, since girls have better sense of smell then me. For example, if it is Kouros, I only use 1 spray since it has such a strong smell.

    Same spot for me. Two sprays to each pectoral muscle, and two to the middle of the chest.

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    Have any of you guys tried to spray your wrists and dab behind your ears? I am currently trying out this method and I like how I hit the pulse point directly.

  22. #22

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    Forget the wrists. See: http://www.basenotes.net/threads/268...ash-your-hands

    Re 'behind your ears' - that's the side of the neck - that's where the arteries are, ie, those pulse points.

    It seems like this method would work for dates or intimate occasions as you can the fragrance right at the pulse point behind your ears

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    Hmm ive seen several threads now on how to spray on your body, and people always mention the neck and cheast.
    But i never see anyone mention the armpits. Im just wondering if you dont spray there. I know if i dont, ill start smelleing sweaty by the end of the day

    Seriously?

    I suspect most people on Basenotes wear deodorant and/or antiperspirant so they don't smell sweaty by the time they leave the house (let alone the end of day).

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    1 on the neck 1 on the chest for a monster.
    2 on the neck 1 on the chest if it has strong sillage.
    Everything else is sprayed from a distance of about 10 inches to a foot with 3 on the neck, 1 on the back of the neck, and 2 on the chest.
    I used to spray my wrists, but it evaporated so quick it was pointless.

    Default Re: What is/are your application method(s)?

    I try to spread it around pretty good. I use my finger to apply behind the ears, and even on my face. 1 or 2 sprays to the chest, one on each side of the neck, crook of the elbows, and 1 on each forearm rubbed together with the bottom side of the other.

    Testing purposes with a fragrance I'm giving a 1st time wearing for. 1-2 on the chest. Then I'll see how I feel after 10 minutes of waiting around or getting dressed.

    Otherwise, depending on fragrance strength, 2 on the chest, one on each side of the neck. I'll spray on my left wrist (I'm left handed, so watch goes on the right) and then tap them together if needed. If I'm hitting the club or going to a party, one on the back of the neck too.

    Haha, I found that The One actually suits my skin well. I can go the usual 4 sprays with it and it actually lasts quite a bit on me.

    I finally received my bottle of Le Male and this is probably the only frag I have that I use a specific method for. It's simple.

    1 on the chest and that's it. I might do a light spray on my left wrist, dab my right wrist and dab behind my ears for a date or an occasion with my woman. But 1-2 MAX for this. This thing is a beast. I read, heard, knew it was potent, but THIS potent? This thing is godly

    Chest, 2x neck, 1x back of head,
    1 on hand (I love sniffing my left hand when leaning on it with my chin: in the car, behind the computer etc.)

    Will try to avoid applying to the neck from now on: it seems to be pretty bad expecially in summers.
    Will add an extra spray or so on the chest / elbows.
