    Default Ridiculous sillage

    Yesterday I was biking with my gf. We went through city and there was not anyone around just taxi passing by (with open windows). When it came in front of us we were suddenly surrounded with cloud of 1 million. What is not funny is that we could smell it next 300 meters (and even when taxi was like 100 meters in front of us). I dont know how many sprays person inside used but it was ridiculous.

    Anyone else have such crazy stories to share?

    I can usually smell cigarette smoke at a similar radius.

    Years ago back in the UK a guy walked past and in front of us (although at quite a distance), instantly letting off a scent cloud of Joop!
    My friend just laughed and said "Wow, get on to Joop! boy!".

    Maybe it was the cap driver wearing and it could be the official fragrance of ALLL the cab drivers in the neck of your woods..just saying , if it was that potent that could be it, cause it sounds kind of ridiculous cause 1million ain't that strong I know that for a fact.

    Wait - did the taxi driver abuse the passenger? (LOL buysblind - thanks for that - i'm waking up to the day ROFL)...

    Sorry OP - not sure if u know, but there's one hilariously funny thread on eau sauvage, china & taxi - I'm sure buysblind (& I) got reminded abt it.

    Anyways back to your query - yes I have an older coworker - she's probably a member of our basenotes liberal sprayers club. Whatever she wears leaves a kilometer of trail. Only good thing about it - we don't need to worry about bugs, insects - if we see any, all we have to do is call her to fumigate the area...

    Somewhat experiences-but way more toned down and from a way smaller distance-with Cerutti 1881 Amber and Drakkar Noir, among others.

    True. I love the scent, but am not convinced it is the longevity/projection/sillage monster that many claim. It's OK, but not great, and seems to vary from wearing to wearing.
    This morning I put on 3 sprays (from a decant, which admittedly doesn't spray as much as the normal bottle). 2 to neck and one on front of shirt. 2 hours later, I got fairly close to my younger adult daughter (with very acute sense of smell), and asked if she could smell. it. She said she could not.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    A 90-year old lady in my building has a habit of wearing at least 10 sprays of Angel. When she takes the elevator, it stinks for at least good hour and you can easily trace her every step for the last 30 minutes:-)

    Ridiculous sillage? 24 hour longevity? The name is Black Orchid.

    OP: Are you sure it was a cab? It might have been a car shaped like a yellow/gold brick. Nothing says "I'm All Class" like a plastic gold brick.

    A guy who used to work in my office, a couple years ago, also drenched himself with 1 Million, that stuff is crazy radiant.

    I must admit that Black Orchid is one of those scents also - if ANYONE in a closed room that I walk into is wearing it, I can instantly smell it. I find this to be true for many Tom Ford scents - they're very forceful scents. This is not a judgement, just an observation.
    "The beginning of freedom is the realization that you are not the "thinker." The moment you start watching the thinker, a higher level of consciousness becomes activated. You then begin to realize that there is a vast realm of intelligence beyond thought, that thought is only a tiny aspect of that intelligence. You also realize that all the things that truly matter - beauty, love, creativity, joy, inner peace - arise from beyond the mind.

    You begin to awaken"
