    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?

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

    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.

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

    i guess i also don't have such kinds of vials, but probably chest would be the mass answer..

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

    Between neck and chest.

    Upper torso about heart height.

    The chest with me as well with those one spray powerhouse fragrances.

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

    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!

  12. #12

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

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

  13. #13

    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.

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

    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.


  15. #15

    Default Re: One spray? Where?

    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.

    How can the person wearing the scent enjoy it if it's only sprayed once to the back of the neck? That would seem only for others enjoyment.

    You'll be pleased to know that unless you walk at only several centimeters per second (perhaps from crawling along the ground using stomach muscles) what you describe defies the known laws of physics (specifically Brownian motion) and it never happens.

    Subtlety is the key to sending out the very powerful message of "I'm not here" and its corollary "Please forgive me if you noticed me, and are thus mightily offended".

    So you've never encountered the guy who's cologne you can smell from across the office? Or the teenage boy who evacuates the room with too much Lynx/Axe? If you need to use scent to show the world you're here then there's something lacking in your life. Only women should smell strongly of fragrance.

    When I read this I think of the original Balenciaga.

    Out of my whole collection, that's the only one. One spray intoxicating. Two sprays simply too much.

    So only one spray, on my chest, before getting dressed, from afar.

    It's nice to be able to smell your own fragrance. It's also nice not to offend other people with too much of it.

    Chest would be my choice. Persistent yet discreet, with just enough longevity and projection throughout the day even in the case of stronger scents.

    Good attempt to divert from your original statement that the fragrance can be smelled five minutes before one arrives. Clearly that statement had no basis in reality.

    If you want to spend big bucks on scent, and then apply one spray so that you emit less scent than the guy next to you who put on some Brut or Old Spice deodorant that morning, or smell less than the other guy who put on some Gillette aftershave balm that morning, that is your prerogative. Your 100ml spray bottle should last you just over 3 years. Very economical.

    If you feel like saying something is lacking in my life, and that only women should wear scents strongly - well feel free to keep making unsupported speculative assertions based on your perception of reality.

    He may have been exaggerating with a whole five minutes, but it's not an outlandish statement. I've worked in two offices where colleagues (both women) could be smelled well before they actually appeared.

    At one of those offices, I remember reading the newspaper on my lunch break - it was one of those "life & style" inserts, with an article about fragrance that said "Your perfume should announce you before you enter a room." I remember thinking "bollocks."

    What?! I don't think ANYONE is talking about being afraid of their fragrance being detected by others. We're talking about how to wear fragrances so unbelievably strong that you'd only wear one spray so you don't choke yourself or others out. The only one I've encountered so far is Interlude Man. I'm normally a 4 spray guy (3 to 4 depending on the strength and the sprayer), but if I wore four sprays of Interlude, I'd be unable to breathe. I love the stuff, but even with its very weak sprayer, wow, it's nuclear.

    I think one spray is not enough for the majority of fragrances.

    I think that one shouldn't overspray.

    I think that there cannot be gender discrimination: women should not be allowed to wear more sprays then men and vice versa.

    Don't think one spray is enough but if a scent is strong and hurts my nose a little then my choice is the abdomen.
