    Default Attar application and projection

    How would one apply attar oils specifically for projection? I have a sample kit of sultan pasha Attars which smell fantastic but due to the small amount don't really project. I am considering purchasing a full sultan pasha attar however am a little hesitant because I am not sure if I will get performance/ projection

    Don't rub them in my experience. Just a dab. It sounds crazy but it really works. Neck and chest area are best. You won't smell it but everyone around you really will, you may get a whiff throghout the day

    Another thing I'd say are some notes like saffron project loud always, but oud can be like (oud mithali from rasasi)

    Oil based perfumes don't have the initial oomph that alcohol sprays have. But they can bloom with the heat of the skin. Depending on what you are wearing, neck and chest, as said. But also inner elbows.

    +1 to what cacio said.
    With attars you tend to get more sillage with heavier application but not necessarily projection due to their lower volatility.

    This is good to know just in case I ever to happen on to one of these.

    I actually find attars more difficult to "contain". I love ASQ Safari Blend but that one can really get away from you and fill up a supermarket if you add even half a swipe too much.

    I apply a half swipe to each side of the clavicle then a dab to each forearm
    Don't stank.

    Great just as long as I can smell the attar on myself
