    Default Which niche fragrances would you give 10/10 for sillage/projection?

    The only one I can say for sure that I have used that had ridiculous projection is Aventus. All I had to do after 3 sprays was walk by within 5 feet of someone and I would hear "who smells so good?"

    Everything I've ever tried from Amouage deserves a 10/10 for both sillage and projection.

    I can never get into Amouage. I am 28 yrs old and when I tested samples to me I smelled like a 55 year old middle eastern man.

    MDCI Invasion Barbare, Amouage Tribute Attar, LM Parfums Hard Leather and Puredistance M. These 4 are perfect. Complex, rich, good projection and longevity, and never boring. My love now is definitely Tribute from the white box. All others should strive for what Amouage did with that creation.

    To me, beastly projection isn't 10/10 at all. In fact, to me, that's not desirable.

    For me, 10/10 projection is moderate. Too little projection and nobody smells it. Too much and it fills a room. For me, both extremes are bad.

    For longevity, longer is better, but for projection, moderate is my preference. TdH Parfum. 10/10 with excellent longevity, and 10/10 with moderate projection.

    That's a head scratcher for me as well. Reflection man smells nothing like the rest of the line. The most westernized of all amouage scents

    Royal Oud:
    - Excellent Longevity. I get 10+ hours from 3 sprays.
    - Excellent Sillage. It leaves such a marvelous scent trail.
    - Moderate Projection. It doesn't sit too close to the skin, but it doesn't push out too far either.
    For me, that's a 10/10, and it smells amazing too.

    To me, the idea that more projection means better... that's for somebody who wants to be Cologne Guy. It's not for me. At a certain point, too much projection is just too much.

    I'm always curious to hear where the OP lives with this kind of thread.

    The social status of scent in the US is a bit precarious. It's not looked down on per se, but still, the idea of people searching for the smelliest possible perfume does have a certain built-in transgressive amusement. It's like asking, "Which fluorescent color is the very brightest? I want to make a complete suit of that color so people's eyes will pop right out of their heads!" :-)

    Completely agree. I took "10/10" to mean he was looking for a "beast", but I don't think of that as a good attribute. It forces me to spray lightly under my clothes, and use less than I normally would. And just a little too much with some of those... You are now "cologne guy" who is trying too hard.
