    Default angel men NOT a projecting beast

    all i hear is angel men projects like crazy blah blah. When i try to test the projection of a fragrance what i do is that i take a shirt and spray it twice with the fragrance than leave it in a room with a door closed. after an hour or two i go in to the room and see if i can smell it. I tried that with one million and after hour or two it filled the entire room up. When i tried it with angel men it didn't get anywhere close to that considering alot people saying it projects like a monster. I tested it again on my skin, i sprayed it than for the first hour people can smell it than after hour or 2 it gets close to the skin, its still there but not projecting. It lasts a good 10 hours but doesn't project.

    Not surprising. I think they have shackled this former beast through reformulation

    If this is true I might finally buy a bottle and retire my bottle of Animale Animale. So I guess now instead of a maximum of 2 sprays of A*men you'll have to go 3.

    Agree, not nearly as strong (to me) as a lot of people report it to be.

    I have a 2004 A*Men that had people 3 rows of seats above me smelling it. This is all anecdotal, of course, but I can vouch confidently for its sillage from 9 years of experience with it.

    Yeah, I got a 30ml bottle and I would say the same. Bought it about a couple years ago. I wouldn't imagine ever spraying this on my neck area, too cloying. I mainly spray this on my wrists and it'd last me a good 10-12 hours.

    My decant of A*Men has similiar projection and longevity as Pure Malt. Its still better than average designer scent but far from sample that I had few years ago or monsters like Montales.

    I really hate reformulations and the fear of it occuring to my favorite scents...!

    Maybe this is why I back up bottles of my favorite scents REALLY MADLY!

    Doesn't project? You can smell this stuff coming off someone at the opposite end of a football pitch.

    I still get great projection out of it. 3 sprays is more than enough for me.

    Yes. I noticed several years ago that A*Men is no longer the projection beast that it once was. It has definitely been re-formulated.

    Can't we just celebrate this?

    Projection is not beastly on my skin although its still quite good. As far as longevity goes that's a totally different story (15-20 hours)

    I was surprised how little mine projected as well. Longevity is not great either.

    When I tested this horrid fragrance years ago I was on the phone to my girlfriend who was in Brazil visiting her family and I was stuck in England. Half way through the conversation on the phone she stops and says she can smell something really awful and sickening. I was shocked as I told her I had just applied A*Men and she could smell it from Brazil.

    Hows that for projection!

    I'm training to be an astronaut. One day I put on Angel Men by mistake on launch day. The guys at mission control could still smell it on the launch pad even after a billion tons of rocket fuel and flame had sent me into orbit

    I'm working in the sewers of London. Ever since I apply one spritz of A*Men before going to work my colleagues say it smells like a chocolate factory down there and not like Kouros anymore.

    I'm not getting any projection with my 2010-11 bottle. Friends have to get too close to smell it... it's dissapointing as many of its cheap copies projects better than my original AMen...
    It's quite weaker than the testers i tried back in the day, and much closer to the skin than fragrances like Jaipur EDP, Costume National Homme, L'Instant, etc...
    I'm quite depressed...
    ... And do me a favor - don't disturb my friend. He's dead tired.

    Welcome to the Bwahahaha! era...

    It projects very well for me, especially for the first 4-5 hours.

    I really doubt she could smell it through a phone. I don't think that something like that would be possible.

    It's been reformulated probably. It will last the usual 7+ but it ain't loud.

    Head's up IMO 1 Million also not a projection beast anymore and likely reformulated, maybe only first several minutes.
