    Default Versace Eros Performance Help?

    Hello everyone! Iím a high school junior that recently found a love for fragrances. I am a noob and very inexperienced in fragrances but am trying to learn more little by little. I recently purchased two fragrances that I absolutely adore scent wise (these being Spicebomb Extreme and Versace Eros). Spicebomb Extreme has incredible performance, but Versace Eros is fairly disappointing (2018 batch). How many sprays (and what spots) would be adequate for school to last ideally at least 4 hours? As of right now, Iíve been using two sprays on my neck, and one spray on the back of my neck. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance everyone!

    Versace Eros has been reformulated 2018 batches are weaker spray some on your clothing to increase longevity and projection.

    Eros used to be a bomb so this might be a good thing.

    The strong projection only lasted 1 hour (1 period) in school unfortunately. I’m trying to figure out ways to prolong it’s longevity without being too cloying.

    I got about 6 hours from Eros. Spayed on chest, arms and neck.

    I think you are going about it the right way.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Recently I've been wanting to buy this again. Even when I sold it off I didn't dislike it or anything, I think I was just looking for a change. But I'm having a strong hankering and I don't think I can hold out much longer. It's very nice if you're after a smooth, creamy mint with some sweetness.

    As far as performance and your application methods, you seem to have the right idea. I think if you add two solid sprays to your chest just before you put your shirt or undershirt on, you'll notice that it holds much much longer and nice wafts pop out throughout the day. I think two to the chest, one to the back of the neck, one to the front of your neck and then either a walk-through or another wide spray to your torso (clothes one) should get things working nicely.

    With 12 sprays you'll end up with an aura of Eros. For daily use 4 sprays are sufficient. I don't know if the performance has changed. I own a 2016 batch.

    By the way have fun and enjoy the world of fragrances. Don't waste your money on blind buys, just a personal advice.

    Thank you so much! 12 sprays seems a little heavy but I’ll consider 6. Thanks for the advice about the blind buys!

    Mine is strong. Bought it a couple months ago, haven't checked the date. 6 would bomb, I go 4, maybe 5. And I'm generally pretty heavy on the trigger.
    Itís tragic to think that heroic manís great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    I remember the silage was quite bold when I smelled it a long time ago.

    Also the batch of 2017 has been reformulated and is equal to that of 2018?
