    Default One spray? Where?

    As we all know, some fragrances are so strong they only require one spray. When using such fragrances, whereabouts on the body is it best to spray?

    Something like Interlude Man or Oud Ispahian I would do 1 spray to the upper chest under the shirt.

    But I don't have that many 1 spray scents. Or maybe I do, but opt for > 1!

    I agree with dougczar. Upper chest for me.

    I use more than one spray with all my fragrances even powerhouse ones such as my Amouage scents.

    If however I did just use one spray it would be to the chest.

    If limited to one spray, upper chest for me too.

    Interlude Man is a perfect example of a 1 spray scent. For me, 1 spray to the chest is more than enough. I try to half-spray my chest and also half-spray my upper back/neck area.

    Also agree one spray upper chest under clothing. Sometimes I'll go a half spray on each wrist and touch them to my neck, this works pretty good for those scents just short of beast mode!

    I agree with most. I shoot for that spot where the neck and chest meet.

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

    For me, when it's one spray, it indicates the chest. Occasionally though, if the scent is really strong, or say a non-appropriate for season-projection monster.. ex: wearing Polo in the Summer - in which case I will do 1 spray to the back of the neck.

    I very rarely 1 spray (NK Incense being the exception); if i did, it will be on or just below the lower back neck / cervical vertebrae.

    One or two to the chest and a full spray to the back of the neck.

    Spraying on the back of the neck is new for me but seems to work better than behind the ears.

    Thanks for all the replys so far. Looks like the consensus seems to be to spray on the chest. Thanks all for the advice. :-)

    +1 and even with NK Incense.

    If I were to spray once, the upper chest where my usually unbuttoned dress shirt first exposes some skin. That way, a bit under the shirt and a bit on exposed skin and some also gets on the shirt to help out if you put the shirt on quickly enough.

    Sorry, but in my opinion that statement is a nonsense.,
    Having tested thousands of scents, i have yet to come across one scent that is that strong, with the possible exception of Secretions Magnifique - but that's a joke scent.

    Chest with me; sometimes upper torso depending on how I feel that day.

    Some of us don't want to have our scent walking in 5 minutes before we do. Subtlety is the key.
