    I agree. Sometimes I'll spray into the air and walk through it.

    Do people really fear wearing a fragrance under their shirts? That's my default spot: spraying two or three shots onto my chest, probably about six inches away, before putting on my shirt in the morning. I haven't noticed any problems with projection from that, and it has the added bonus of some of the fragrance transferring to the fabric, which adds extra longevity. Plus the chest is a great heat radiator and keeps the scent from being directly in my nose and fatiguing it.

    Usually for me I spray very close on my neck to accurately hit the pulse points. I think I will try your method though which sounds great in theory you get the heat from the chest area without so much olfactory fatigue. I made that mistake recently with two sprays of play intense...damn near chocked myself out.

    I always spray about 15cm from the skin. If it's a lighter scent I will spray two to the neck instead of the usual one.

    That's my default spot too. I spray 1 shot to the chest and 1 shot aimed upward toward my upper back, neck and even a bit of the back of my head. Then I immediately put my shirt on. That's just 2 shots total that tend to be more than enough for most scents to last me a day. If a scent wears too lightly, I'll spray a 3rd shot as a mist to walk through before putting my shirt on.

    This method won't be enough for clubbing (which isn't my thing) nor will it be enough for a Cologne Guy (but that's not me either).

    Prefer to spritz fairly close to the intended target, from a couple of inches away.

    How does "walking through the mist" thing work? Once I spray it, I find it fades rather quickly.

    Definitely stay away from too close. What happens is the molecules will layer and you'll end up mixing top/middle/basenotes at simultaneous intervals. If they're not necessarily harmonious all at once, the effect will be overwhelming. Far away will have even coverage, but less intensity. Find your own happy medium

    Depending on the fragrance, half-spray from a 2/3 inches away or full spray from 5 inches +

    If I'm going to work I'll spray maybe 12" away for a subtle smell that won't overwhelm my coworkers. Otherwise I will spray my wrist about 1" away.

    In middle school, I once read a ~200 page book about common misconceptions and wrote a report about it. I think there are more misconceptions in this thread than in that book. Did you guys know you will get drunker faster if you drink through a straw?

    Extremaly strong fragrances I like to spray from far. IMO it develops and arrive faster on the stage I ilke most. Weak fragrances like Voyage D'Hermes I preffer to spray closer to skin.

    What about longevity and projection? Is closer better? As it's more concentrated?
