    Default CDG 2. How to wear it?

    I just bought this and I love it, but I find it to be subtle and doesn't last. Should I be brave and do more sprays, and if so how many. I tried three sprays?
    Current top choices:
    1- Portrait of A Lady
    2- 34 st Germaine Boulevard by Diptyque
    3- Bleecker Street by Bond 9
    4- Acqua Di Parma Oud
    5- Clive Christian #1
    6- Coromandel by Chanel
    7- Acqua Di Parmal Colonia Intensa
    8- Guerlain Derby
    9- MFK lumiere Noir
    10- Dans Tes Bras

    I'd leave it at three.

    Are you saying more than three will not work ( this is the way this fragrance) or you think it will be too much to people around me?

    I was thinking more toward the latter. Of course it's ultimately up to you. Go with your best judgment.

    You may think CDG 2 is gone after the first 2 hours because the very strong ink notes and aldehydes have vanished. However, it's at this point which CDG 2 really starts getting good. I think 3 sprays will be plenty. I usually go for 2 with this one.

    Aspects of it lurk around (it's LOADED with ISO E Super) even when you think it's gone. I do, however, keep a small decant with me when I wear it as I love the scratchy opening.

    Spray as much as you like really.

    It feels like you want more. Why starve yourself. Nourish your perfumista.

    Spray 8.

    It didn't strike me as shortlived or lacking in potency. I would also have thought that three sprays would be plenty.

    This one can sneak up on you over the day. Experiment with spraying an extra time or two, but beware of olfactory fatigue. I ended up frag bombing my car on a many hour long drive with one of my friends I think the above posters are right about the opening being so strong, that you find it weak afterwards.

    Thank you all for the advise. I will experiment again with three sprays and see what happens.
