    For F/W, I'd go with 2 - 4 sprays. Tom Ford Private Blend's sprayers are not that good. They are not Creed or Chanel, in which case I'd say one spray max.

    For spring, 1 - 2 sprays max.

    For summer, I wouldn't even make eye contact with it ;-)

    2 sprays seem to work for me.

    AS a founder of TLOSC - I recommends spraying 4-6 sprays of Tom Ford Tuscan Leather, but only direct 2-3 sprays above your chest, the rest of the sprays should be directed towards the chest and lower torso.

    You will smell all day - and people will turn heads for the first 2 hours, accept that and think of how many people you meet each day that either stinks from bad breath, cigarette smoke, sweat, curry, garlic breath and so on.

    You just smells of luxury lether and raspberry and vanillia

    FYI Don't wear Tuscan Leather in late spring, summer and early fall - just don't !

    The few times I tried it, 3 sprays seemed to be fine for me.

    Regardless of season, I use three sprays: one to each wrist and one to the décolletage.

    3 spray max : one behind neck(hairline) one in the front of the neck(hairline:beard) one in top of your head (set of hair, prolongs scent as it's rich with moisture )...btw forget about wrist or so as these points are good if testing out in the beginning a new scent but this area is high in traffic and not worthwhile unless at first testing and btw if you want to prolong it further spray your apparel also but that takes commitment to one specific scent as I don't practice it as it hinders any other scent I might wear with let's say same sweater ......Cheerios

    Agreed. I finally got around to getting a sample of this only yesterday, and I actually found it revolting. Why anyone would want to spray this on themselves is beyond me.

    But as the saying goes, different strokes for different folks! Some clearly love it and plenty on here rave about it.

    I do three sprays on my chest all at the same spot and then one on the wrist. Since it's winter and I work outside it's covered by three to four layers of clothes and nobody has ever mentioned it. As it gets warmer I would back off a little, in the heat it could become insanely strong.

    After using 2 sprays today, I found that this is the magic number.

    In the past, I used 3 sprays and after 12 hours it was still too strong.

    No more than 2 sprays. TL is quite strong and very long lasting, so you don't need a lot.

    I would avoid it in the summer, or if you must - just one spray, and I'd still recommend it only on cooler evenings. It's just not a hot weather type fragrance. There are other options in the Private Blend line that are more suitable to summertime and high heat.

    Generally if you see plants wilting, it's too much.

    I do my usual 4. Each side of neck and each forearm

    I use two sprays. One on my neck and the other on my wrist.

    Ive done a 180 on this. The first time i tried it on, i washed it off my wrist and wondered exactly what you did. I really like it now after trying it again. Surprising because i cant stand Tobacco Vanille anymore which i liked on first application.

    I have this on today for the 4th time. On the other arm is Italian Cypress. On my skin TL is a mouse and IC is raging. I put it on roughly 1 1/2 hours ago at Saks and it is a skin scent. This has happened to me every time I've tried it.

    I wish I got the epic bomb that people are posting about.

    And I don't get the powerhouse that everyone seems to mention either. It lasts very well but as you mention, only a skin scent for me.

    I can go past 10 sprays and still the same result. It's not olfactory fatigue nor am I gassing out any rooms, be it summer or winter. I have checked with family and multiple trusted sources and I have sat through hot boREd room meetings as well, all with no over spraying issues.

    I find the 1 to 3 spray mentions very interesting....

    One spray on each side of the neck is really all you need. If you really want to be noticed though, you can also try walking into another spritz.
