    Default Question About Heavy Projectors

    If you were going to a banquet and wanted to wear a fragrance that would project for the duration of the evening, I'm sure you would select a heavy hitter from one of the renown houses. However, to keep from choking out everybody in the car en route to the affair, do you ever wait until everyone disembarks from the vehicle before applying this kind of fragrance? I just wanna get your take on this.

    I do not personally. After all those in the car with you are probably friends and family. It wouldn't be a bad idea to wait to spray though.

    Default Question About Heavy Projectors

    Expensive electronics are nothing to mess around with. Always use a cart to transport them and remember to lift with the knees. Often, a well built projector produces a great picture.

    Not. People have the right to stop breathing.

    Don't use 'heavy projectors' to a banquet: people want to taste their food and not your fragrance!

    Would most likely spray/splash on more sparingly, more cautiously but (again most likely) would already have the fragrance on by the time of being in the car or, as a matter of fact, while leaving the house

    If the heavy projecting fragrance is a favourite that you want to wear but not gas people out I would use the mist method. Spray the scent in the air and walk under it. Do this twice and you will have the scent you want but without it hard hitting other peoples noses.

    I think this might suffice. Thanks, man.

    Best to ride solo when you’re doused in one of these heavy-hitters. Applying them after they disembark is not exactly a great idea as you’ll most likely be projecting like crazy going into the banquet. No guarantee your fragrance will be a hit with the others so if you see ‘WTF...?’ expressions on people’s faces, don’t be too surprised.

    Or spray it ahead of time before you leave for your banquet.

    Heavy projectors should be applied well before you get to wherever you're going
    not in the car along the way IMO
    Give a Powerhouse time to settle and calm down before getting around a lot of
    people or it will be a very long night...
