    Fair enough. For what it's worth I've been dousing myself in vintage Egoiste.

    Didn't you recently score a couple splash bottles? I was eyeing my vintage Egoiste Concentree the other day but decided against it....

    Combination of splash and spray bottles, all are vintage. I thought Egoiste EDT was better overall compared to Egoiste Concentree and Bois Noir. Egoiste Concentree had a stronger spicy opening but in the end they both come to the same dry down more or less. Economically speaking, Egoiste EDT is a much better investment imo. There's a few Egoiste EDT bottle on eBay that are worth taking a look at.

    Here's one to look at:

    Guerlain Vetiver is one of the best for overspraying.

    Funny. I did 14 sprays today of the same fragrance from a sample decant. I'm starting to wonder if it's
    authentic because it's weak juice. Although smells great on days like today... hot and humid.

    Right, never smells over the top but just more sillage/projection for first two hours, followed by an extended skin-scent dry down, and the scent is fantastic. I want to move on to other vetivers and had put up my bottle for sale/swap but no interest. This is an earlier 75 ml 'frosted/ribbed glass' version. Decided to just wear it out.

    The juice really isn't the strongest, unfortunately. May be due to reformulation. But MI certainly shines in the heat!

    Yes, but even 40 sprays is impressive. When I was trying to clean out my bottle, I think I got up to 50 sprays. That's the most of anything I had ever sprayed on myself. There was literal liquid dripping down my arms. I think that was a bit over the top. How is 40 working out for you?

    30 sprays man!!! LOL

    was thinking you'd get 3 or 4 wearings out of that little decant but I guess not huh I probably wore about 14 sprays (of Royal Oud) tonight. You gotta spray some on your clothes, I think all Creeds work better that way. I'm still getting good whiffs of it probably 6-7 hours later, God I love that creamy cedar/sandalwoody dry down
