    Default What is a good amount of sprays for L'Eau D'Issey?

    I just bought this and Burberry London and was wondering how many sprays you guys would use of this stuff. I became interested in fragrances about a month ago, and I must admit it is an addicting hobby.

    Despite the name, l'eau d'issey for men is powerful stuff, so I would go light, two or max three spritzes. In general, marine notes (acqua di gio, light blue, etc) can be extremely powerful, even if the wearer doesn't realize it. (I actually don't like these notes, but that's a personal thing).

    4 sprays is a nice number.

    As many as you think you need, or as many as people can stand.

    Test and see for yourself. People have different reactions to fragrances.

    the thing is, I dislike the top. Smells like someone dropped dandy lions in your pocket filled with some change.

    Give it a while, and it smells beautiful. Give it some longer, and it's absolutely delicious.

    So, I'd go one on each arm/wrist. Back of the beck, and chest.

    So four, or three.

    Three should be fine.

    6 sprays under clothes.
    8 sprays if it's an especially hot day.

    Spray one to your chest, then spray on each side your neck just below your earlobes, then one on the back of your neck near your hairline (the nape) for sillage (your wake).

    Welcome to the madness!

    I concur on being careful with this stuff, it's the strongest aquatic I have, though the scent is very unique in its starkness. London is pretty good too, actually one of my favorites, and it's tricky because it often seems weak, and people complain that it's weak, but I think it leaves behind stronger basenotes than people give it credit for.

    A minimum of 4-5, in my opinion, in order to get any significant projection and/or longevity.

    One of the very few fragrance I could use two or three sprays, very potent stuff with insane longevity.

    Minimum of 4 I would say. Two on the neck, one on each upper forearm.

    I think 3-6 at most... Unless you're outside around other people with lots of cologne...

    Lol. Yeah, I was also expecting post like this from Petruccijc.

    Now to topic, If I had to wear it I'd probably go with 2 on chest and 1 on neck.
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense

    I wouldn't go more than 4. It's deceptively strong stuff that will creep up on you if you're not careful.

    Anything over 3 is too much. L'Eau D'Issey gets sharp and too "cleaner-esque" to me if people wear more than that.
