    Default Bleu De Chanel Longevity and Projection

    I recently purchased BDC. I do enjoy the scent BUT it seems that after maybe an hour or 2, it becomes a skin scent. Maybe my nose just gets used to it but I don't get the occasional whiff every now and then. also when I put my nose to the spot that I sprayed, I can still smell it for maybe 6 hours or so but it is faint after the first 1-2 hours.

    Anyone else?

    Actually I don't personally have any problems with this scent.

    For a fresh and modern scent, Bleu's longevity is above average, and the projection is very good on my skin.

    It is a fantastic, modern scent. But I too, have experienced problems with projection. It stays rather close to my skin but I do enjoy it so.

    Most scents are stronger the first 1-3 hours then move closer to the skin over time. Unless you're talking about Lutens, Slumberhouse...more powerful fragrances that are of higher concentration.

    Good longevity on skin/clothing, but not much projection after half an hour for me.

    Average, not just in longevity but all aspects.

    If this projects a half an hour on your skin you either have a fake bottle or a need to get some tissue and blow your nose. Women love this and it gets a ton of compliments. Just that should tell you that it projects and lasts enough to be recognized by others. It's not a beast, but it's also by no means weak.

    +1 to this ^ ^ ^

    I even get better longevity when I wear it at night... I could still smell it when I wake up in the morning. Maybe some people have a very dry skin?

    Most Chanel fragrances tend to be very good with longevity, and a little light with projection.

    BdC actually projects better than most other Chanel's that I own. And like the others, longevity is quite good.

    How many sprays are you all using?
    Maybe I should bump up the number. I usually do 1 on chest, 1 on forearm, and 1 on neck.

    I have obnoxiously well projection with Bleu De Chanel. I've had several cashiers compliment me as well as people sitting across the table. Ironically, I have huge issues with projection on Le Male unless I really cake it on (bottle bought at Dillard's) Lasts 16+ hours though.

    Try two on each side of the neck and two at the base of the neck. I tend to skip arm sprays. Scents don't seem to last long there and I feel like I waste sprays.

    For daytime use, I do at least 4 sprays: 2 neck (1 for each side), 1 chest, 1 back.

    A spray on the shirt always does the trick for me, as far as longevity goes.

    Projection is very strong on me. It also comes off as a bit sneezy to my nose. I probably wouldn't wear this as I suspect it would irritate those around me.

    Did you try applying nonscented lotion on before spraying on BDC? The lotion helps with projection depending on your skin type. Personally, BDC prejects on my skin and the warmer it gets the my it projects.
