    Default Italian Cypress... How many sprays?

    I've just received Tom ford Italian cypress. How many sprays would you all suggest? I've noticed the Tom ford sprayers are not very powerful at all...

    Does this scent project well? I've noticed the longevity is great but don't want to stink out the room if projection is big.

    On a side note should the Tom ford logo be a sticker on the bottle and the front of the box?

    99.9% sure it's legit as it smells the same from the sample I tried in Selfridges just want to make sure

    They're not the most powerful sprayers, but given the strength of the fragrances in the PB line, they don't need to be.

    We're having "relatively" warm weather in the UK right now, so I'd be careful not to spray in excess. Personally, I'd go one to the chest and one to pulse points on your neck as a maximum.

    Agree w/ Tyler. This is one to be conservative with.

    The same as with any other scent.

    Thanks guys I'll go with 3 sprays then.

    So is the tom ford logo meant to be a sticker on the bottle and box? Not etched in or anything?

    None. Just joking. I would go with 2 sprays. To me this seems a bit on the strong side so 3 or more sprays may be overpowering.

    It was in the 40-50's here when I wore it the other week and I went with 4 sprays. 1 to the chest, 1 on the neck, and 1 on each wrist. It projects strongly for the first few hours just like the rest of the Tom Ford PB line. 3 sprays should be perfect.

    As far as the sticker on the box, that is the way they are supposed to be. They just use the same boxes and bottles for all of the private blend line (except Neroli Portofino's bottle) and slap a sticker on them to differentiate between scents.

    In my experience it's very strong. I would go with either 1 "full" spray or 2 "half" sprays.

    Definitely a strong fragrance. I did 3 sprays in 60 degree weather and got a compliment from the Italian women over the counter in an Italian cafe... So that's about a 4ft projection beating out the smell of pizza and pasta

    I wore 4 today. Not overpowering, but 3 would be perfect probably.

    This smells almost identical to Halston Z-14 to me, but is approximately 3x more concentrated. Which means it's still 5x more expensive by potency.

    Right on. I happened to buy a partially used bottle of TFIC for $60. At full price, Z-14 is the no-brainer choice, IF it's the oakmoss version.

    Bergdorf and Saks show the same thing. Nordstroms only shows 50ml.

    Can I ask how you received a free 50ml bottle?

    By the way, I think Tom Fords is phasing out all 100ml bottles. It seems they're trying to sell just the 50ml and 250ml sizes going forward.
