    Default Curious about spraying

    This may sound weird but I've been double spraying my applications which has aiding with projection after say 6 hours or so I thought it would be natural to assume that more fragrance in one concentrated area = stronger projection then I tried spraying from point blank versus a normal spray from about 3 inches or so and have found double spraying three inches and covering more skin = more projection.

    Anyone else experimented? What are your results?

    Three normal sprays work best for me.

    I've been posting here for a decade about double spraying to enhance longevity of weak scents.
    I found the best method was to spray and note the positions, wait about 15 seconds, then spray directly on top of where I'd previously sprayed.

    Only problem is, longevity may be nearly doubled, but usage is definitely doubled.
    Cheers,

    I usually do one close spray (about an inch or two from skin) on both sides of my neck and my fragrances project better and last longer, as opposed to doing far sprays (6+ inches from skin). I also apply Total Moisture Vaseline lotion on my skin and let it dry for at least 30 mins. before spraying any fragrance on top of it.

    I spray according to the fragrance used. If it is a light fragrance I will spray a little more. If it is a strong fragrance, less is applied. I try to balance it out.

    Sometimes Depending on the scent I will spray 16 sprays at one application.....If it's a scent like Lapidus 3 or 4 sprays of course because of it's strength but a scent like Platinum 16 sprays and I am still not overpowering.

    That does seem like a lot. I don't judge others for their habits, but I'm always surprised by how many sprays some people use. I don't think I've ever sprayed more than 4 sprays of anything. A lot of scents are one or two sprays only for me.
