    Default Chanel Platinum Egoiste Sprays?

    To those that wear this routinely based on the new formulation how many sprays and wear get you the just right amount of Sillage to be tastefully noticed but not be the dreaded cologne guy? Thank-you.
    Kind Regards,

    I wear it regularly and I have to do around 8 sprays for it to be anything near noticeable on me. I absolutely love it as a fragrance, but strangely enough never really get any compliments on it.

    I use it twice a week and use 4-5 sprays and most seems to like it a lot. I spray half an hour before going to work to avoid the "harsh top notes" that some could dislike.

    One of the few I got criticism on. I just wore too much. Stick to 3 sprays, please.

    2 sprays is perfect for work. Anymore, and it becomes cloying.

    8-10 sprays at least. This one is very weak, no longevity. Fierce is much better...yes I said it!

    PS As a side question, it's no judge of quality but is IYO is Platinum much of a compliment getter or just an OK office type scent?
    Thank-you,

    I'll just add that it's deceptively strong and I'll leave it there.

    Yes I would add try wearing one or two sprays max for a week or two and see how much more sensitive your nose becomes. I find this the case for most scents. If you're sprayed this ten times I guarantee you'll be able to be smelt across the room.

    I do 6-8 sprays. It seems like too much but recently my wife and I went to dinner and I wore Egoiste. 3 to neck and chest 1 spray on each forearm, then 3 more to chest and neck. We sat at the bar waiting for our table and I felt like I was probably gassing the person next to me, because the scent seemed to be eengulfing me. It was probably 45 minutes after application, and my wife normally would make a comment on the car ride if I was overly perfumed. So I asked her at the bar, "Is my cologne too much?" She had to lean in 6-8 inches to my neck and said lno its not really strong at all.

    So I think this is not really a projection beast for me but more of a close scent (you'll smell it if you want to) Longevity is not a problem, I could smell it the next morning. I think this may be a scent where 6-8 sprays may not project anymore than 3-4, but longevity may increase

    In my opinion, 3-4 sprays are truly enough for decent yet lasting longevity and sillage.
