    Default Back To Black - By Kilian. Projection issues.

    Words can't describe what I feel about this fragrance. My all time favorite, my baby! Sweet little Back to Black.
    If it wasn't for the crap projection that it has, I would have bought a bottle already. Longevity is superb, I wish projection also would be.

    How strong does this fragrance project on your skin? Does it project better on clothes? Is it a beast on you? Tell me everything regarding the projection of this mouthwatering creation.


    Thanks!

    When tested, it was ok with projection and longevity.

    I have a few bottles that dont last on me but would have loved it if they did. As for BtB its a beast on me...it last an easy 10hrs. You couls try and spray on clothes bu just be careful if it stains...this is the only reason I dont spray on clothes. How many sprays you using. I use 3 but it that doesnt work for you add a few more.

    I do:
    one on the chest
    two on the neck

    You could try:
    one on the chest
    two on the front of the neck
    one at the back of the neck
    one on the wrist and press over to the other wrist

    Well, I had projection issues, not longevity issues. The longevity on me is beastly as well!

    Projection on my skin is great, nearly as good as A*men

    Try putting it on pulse points
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    The few times I wore it, it had very much above average longevity and projection. I hit the inside of my wrists and side of my neck with an extra spray for those with bad projection, but never needed to do so with this one.

    Pretty sure I have no issues with this scent. The only problem is probably that it projects a bit too much for my liking and my country in general. One spray RADIATES, and I can pick it up after 20-24 hours and a shower. Amazing fragrance

    I'm surprise that it doesn't project well on you. I use 5 sprays, same way as told by BN Oupavoc and it really projects well and I have very dry skin. Try using an unscented moisturizer, might do the trick...

    A beast on me, but got fed up with it pretty quickly -- sickly sweet

    Stick with it.

    I find a lot of the time (and I could be completely crazy) it takes a while for a fragrance to 'stick' and begin working for me. Something that barely seems to project at first eventually seems to project well.

    Back to Black is not a projection monster, in my experience, but it should be decent. Stick with it, try the back of the neck too.

    I have yet to test this fragrance, but when I do I will report back with projection #s! I remember it being quite powerful when I wore it a while back

    TV is an awesome fragrance, I have yet to get a full bottle of that. I don't think they're that similar. I get a big burst of deep and sugary sweet honey with B2B. TV isn't quite like that. TV is more about the tobacco, with a different type of honey. So if you ask me, get both!

    The first hour is beastly, but it dies down quickly, to a close to skin scent. Well, I'm going to buy a bottle anyway
