    Default top 3 projection fragrances?

    What are your top 3 for projection? I have a small collection -- tons of decants but only 6 or 7 full bottles. My best projector would be Tobacco Oud or Myths Man.

    There are many, but three that fit the bill for me :

    Attar by Montale
    Parisian Oud
    The Night

    I sprayed Honour, Jubilation XXV and Reflection on three different pieces of paper about the same amount and left them on a desk. Honour completely overwhelmed the other two(I couldn't event detect they were in the same room).

    I really want a Bond No 9 pretty badly at this point. The issue is there are so many i wouldn’t know where to begin. I smelled Scent of Peace, Italy, and Montauk last weekend and was really fond of all of them.

    I’ll be smelling Montales on my next trip to NYC. That one sounds nice. Anything with bergamot and geranium usually wins for me

    Not one that I own, but I feel the need to mention Citizen X by Ex Nihilo. I'm sampling it right now, and I've washed my forearm 4 times (3 hours after application), and it's still nuclear on me. It's a sort of bland but sharp spicy scent on my skin, and I'm not a fan. Help me...

    Of the fragrances I own, Dark Aoud by Montale, Christopher Street by Charenton Macerations, and Classic Patchouli by Von Eusersdorff are probably the strongest projectors. Thankfully, I like all of those.

    I have Jubilation XXV and it's definitely not a projector; Reflection I will try soon. My points of reference are Interlude Man, Myths Man, Journey Man and Opus VI, which are all on the annihilating end of the projection spectrum.

    Hmm,

    I think someone's skin might make a difference in this.

    For me, I seem to smell the wake of my fragrance most strongly with Dolce & Gabbana The One (either EDT or EDP). I walked quickly to and from the break room at work and one of the managers said he could smell me (he was 10-feet away). Very few of my fragrances carry that far on the air. I happen to use the aftershave splash, deodorant and the fragrance as a set. I typically only need 3 sprays to get plenty of projection.

    Bois du Portugal also has a ton of projection off of my skin. Very few sprays needed. In the winter 3 sprays, in the summer 1 or 2 sprays.

    Nautica Voyage is a scent that can fill a room but is very pleasing and inoffensive. It's one of my most complimented scents from strangers. I wear it in the summer often.

    When enough is sprayed, Green Irish Tweed can beast and it gets the most compliments out of all my fragrances.

    My Bay Rum can also be too strong. I only need 1 or 2 sprays of it and I only use it in winter because in the summer it's way too potent.
