    I also find 6 to 8 sprays to be the sweet spot on this one.

    question please: when a perfume is described as having little projection. ive read that more sprays are required. what is meant by more sprays,that you spray it on more parts of your body or that you spray more say 2-3 times in the same spot where you would normally spray just once?
    Anas b. Malik reported that Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) used to come to our house and there was perspiration upon his body. My mother brought a bottle and began to pour the sweat in that. When Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) got up he said:

    Umm Sulaim, what is this that you are doing? Thereupon she said: That is your sweat which we mix in our perfume and it becomes the most fragrant perfume.

    More parts of the body, to an extent. I hit chest, sides of neck, inner elbows, and wrists. That's pretty much it. If I need more sprays than that, I hit the same spots more than once. Everyone has their own method - just find what works for you.

    Maybe about 24 sprays of oajan throughout the day today. I don't know if anyone calls this beastmode but it isn't. Perhaps the opposite. Maybe i got a bad bottle.

    Hopefully you don't get this stuff on your clothes as it could linger on for days.

    I got to re reply about Oajan today. I tried only 4 sprays today: 2 on each arm, and it actually is something I can smell past 2 plus hours now going 3. It has good projection too. I guess two things, the bottle sort of settled and opened up once after spraying it a few times after brand new. And dont spray too much at one time. Even though I know these principles , I still manage to forget them.

    Same with my bracken these days I get a lot of strong projection from it and a defined green and brown notes while during the first couple of times I wore it after brand new I didnt get anything defined from it.
    Always break in the new fragrance w a few sprays and some circulation of the air within it. I guess.

    Today about 12 or 13 sprays of Ombre Leather 18.


    Disclaimer , i can do this w my ombre leather at work because mine is an "as-is" , the fragrance is brand new but the batch was left in an area where it affected the top notes of the leather in long term.
    So now my ombre leather just smells like a fresh scent but w a hint of the ombre leather . I bought a 3.4oz for only 45usd shipped. lol
