    But don't denigrate yourself man, you're not overspraying...

    Overspraying means going over from what YOU like and need...

    You're rocking your own perfume just fine with 6 sprays...

    13 shots of Arrogance Uomo... to the pecs / navel... all under a thick t-shirt and flannel. No one in the house could smell me unless they got close.

    Whereas 2 shots of this stuff to exposed skin might just be an overspray depending on the company you keep.

    Point is I'm more of a 'know thy fragrance' kind of user. And, yeah I guess many of you are probably thinking: this dude is fooling himself, he's THE stereotypical cologne guy. All I can say to that is I've been at this for decades and friends/family would've given a good verbal, if not physical, pummeling if I was ever responsible for a gas out. Never happened, don't expect it ever will.

    That's what this lounge is for, buddy. We're not judging you at all on the amount of sprays you've used to smell good. Keep up the good work! Or should I say, "keep up the good SPRAYS!" 😁

    I'm not sure if this qualifies as overspraying or not but 4 sprays of Bleu De Chanel EDT.

    Yeah, I really didn't start to be conscious of overspraying until I started reading about certain fragrances on here and the whole never more than 2-3 sprays max vibe. I have worn cologne for the last 20 years, both when I was young enough to live with my parents/siblings who would have not thought twice about telling me it was too much and now married with children and have never been told I was wearing too much. Quite the opposite, I got a lot of positive reactions as a young adult. Now, in an office setting I try to be conscious of my co-workers (again for fear of offending someone after reading so much about that on here) but even then anytime they mention it to me or I bring it up to them it is in a very positive way (like recommeding another co-worker smell me as well positive way).
    Having said that, I do not wear cologne for compliments I wear it because I like the way it smells so the compliments don't really matter. But the fact that people go out of their way to say something positive indicates that it is not offensive and the amount I feel is right is for me. I think the overspray issue is blown out of proportion sometimes on here, though I have been around people on very rare instances who smell like they bathed in something. To further my point about my usage I currently use my wife for a guage to see if I am wearing too much. I often think I am surely projecting 2-3 feet she will have to be right up next to me to smell (insert fragrance here), and I am not talking about light fragrances either. I honestly belive my skin soaks up scent quickly as well so I'm sure this plays a factor. My point is I also use others I trust to guage my projection and I am never at "too much". I also have to encourage my wife to spray a little more. I like smelling a nice perfume from a couple feet away in the mid and drydown.

    I suggest that Overspraying is often used as hyperbole when, rather than being gasssed-out, a sensitive person simply smells any non-natural scent on someone else and they have a problem with it. I believe, at least for the time being.

    Yes, Sir! My coworkers love this juice! Anything less than 6 and I'll start hearing things like, "why are you not wearing my favorite scent today," or.. "hey, I'm surprised you're not wearing a nice fragrance today".. 😁

    Blame my coworkers for my madness!! Lol
