    Default Bel Ami Vetiver questions (How many sprays? What kind of dress code suits to this frag?

    Hello everyone,

    I just have bought Bel Ami Vetiver. I really love this masterpiece and it may become my signature fragrance. I have two questions for you (or rather topics to discuss).

    1) How many sprays of Bel Ami Vetiver do you usually wear when you are at office? It is very difficult for me to estimate what is too little and what is too much.

    2) How much formal dress code goes well with this fragrance? Most often I wear something like a smart casual/dressy casual dress code. Do you think it is appropriate to wear it with this kind of dress code? Or would you recommend for this super-stylish fragrance rather more formal dress codes (semi-formal, black tie)?

    Thank you for your opinions!

    J.

    About three sprays. Nothing sporty is worn when wearing BA. More of a distinguished leather.

    Two sprays for me is enough for the office. You can go with three if you really want.
    Smart casual is fine with me..

    3 to 5 sprays.
    This is pretty flexible - dress it up or down.
    One of my first wearings was on a rails to trails walk in October. Warm and after a rain the day before - the smell of BAV mixed with the fallen, rotting leaves of Fall in the air smell was kind of magical. Enjoy your addition!

    I usually go with 8-12 sprays. Forms a nice, close scent cloud.

    As for dress code, I agree with you. Semi-formal or smart casual. It can work with formal attire, but I think it best fits a smart, casual dapper/dandy style.

    I actually find that itís pretty versatile. I wouldnít think twice about wearing it with a pair of jeans and a nice sweater to a suit. Itís polished enough to wear formally, but warm enough to be worn somewhat casually.

    As for sprays?

    To the office, no more than 2-3.
    Out on the town? 3-4.
    Dinner? 2... Itís a nice fragrance but you donít want your company to taste it .
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    3 to 4 for me, but two of those are under the shirt. Business casual up to business is good with this fragrance, but I can see it pulled off with dark jeans as well.

    3-4 sprays for me no matter where I wear it. It doesn't work very well with any kind of clothes though, IMO. I think it's best au naturel.
