    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.

    Interesting thoughts and I think demographics play a huge role in fragrance choice. I'm from a suburban Midwest town and I always feel like I'm violating social mores when wearing "louder" fragrances.

    Maybe he just wants to get his moneys worth? Instead of $200+ bottles of scented water a lot of houses are putting out. I know if i'm paying that kind of money i want it to last & be able to smell it without having to bury my nose in my arm. I don't mean to sound rude Nilla.. i'm just saying we've become too excepting of mediocre products for rediculous prices. If we started only buying quality frags that lasted maybe the other houses would be forced to step up their game a little or go out of business. End of rant. lol

And thank god for that! 2 sprays from my Interlude bottle put out less juice than 1 spray from most of my other scents, and 2 sprays from Interlude put out less juice than a quarter-spray from a Creed! Could you imagine Interlude Man with a Creed sprayer? OHMYGOD. One spray would be enough to stink out an entire building, if not an entire city block. Interlude Man is some powerful stuff, but I love it. I just make sure to wear it lightly.

    As much as I like Rocabar, it's another one of those that turns super-light on me and turns into light skin scent within 30 minutes or so. Even if I overspray (10+ sprays) it doesn't last long on me at all. Minimal projection while it lasts, too. Speaking of current formulation, my bottle is less than a year old.

I don't mean to sound rude Nilla.. i'm just saying we've become too excepting of mediocre products for rediculous prices. If we started only buying quality frags that lasted maybe the other houses would be forced to step up their game a little or go out of business. End of rant. lol
    Bravo ! I am with you man.

    I think some of Clive Christian's scents certainly deserve a 10/10, particularly X, C and No.1 for men.

    Xerjoff's shooting stars line is also quite good in this regard, with particular props to Xerjoff Kobe and Xerjoff Nio.

    Amouage also has some 10/10 in terms of sillage and longevity and as mentioned above I think Reflection is one of them.

    Roja Dove's Extraits (Danger Pour Homme and Enigma Pour Homme) and Pure Distance M also deserve 10/10 for sillage and longevity in my opinion (these are the only two from his range that I have spent a lot of time with, there may be others).

    S. Humbert 777 O Hira de reserves 10/10 in this regard.

    Arabian Oud's King Fahad deserves an 11/10 in this regard.

    Piguet's Knightsbridge also has good sillage and longevity.

    I can see your point, particularly given all the classic fragrances that go away to reformulation rehab and come back as a disappointing shadow of their former selves. But at the same time, isn't this really just another way of suggesting that quality = stinkiness? If canaries don't drop dead at 25 paces, it's ripoff shite.

    If nothing else, this seems like a rather constrained viewpoint. There are whole worlds of fragrance that intentionally refrain from slapping faces and taking names. This is a perfectly worthy approach in its own right and doesn't necessarily indicate any sort of skullduggery.
