    Good points. But what you smell and I smell (and for how long) is quite different. For example, you find Nautica Voyage nasty when over applied. Yet. others believe it's impossible to over spray Voyage because it's so fresh and clean smelling. So again, to each their own.

    I feel like 5-7 is the sweet spot on this one for me. Any more than that and I get anosmic too quickly. Although the first 15-20 minutes before the anosmia sets in are glorious.

    I wore 10 sprays of Noir Anthracite today.

    Anything less than 5 sprays and you're 'teasing', not really wearing a fragrance.

    This does explain why 1) I seem to run out faster than people I know that make 100ml (or less) last from one Christmas gift to the next and b) why some friends leave the room right after I've applied fragrance.

    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 on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Same here TL is my first love, the fragrance that got me into this hobby, and I've found my sweet spot to be right around the same amount. It seems to get stronger a few minutes after you spray it too. 5 sprays and I was getting whiffs of it all afternoon and night

    I don't. I love TdH Parfum, its one of those that has perfect projection and for a citrus-y scent, has pretty good longevity. I probably wear 6-8 sprays of it usually.
