    Default Name a scent that smells even better when you overspray it

    For me its Rive Gauche tin can. If i wear 2 sprays then it just smells like a bunch of spices and barbershop like to me. but if I do 4 sprays then its this amazing vetiver scent bubble that lacks all the harshness. Theres some sweetness that comes out when I spray more of it

    I don't over spray, but if I did, for me it would be Gengis Khan.

    IMO i prefer Costume National Homme when it has been oversprayed. It just seems like the nuance becomes a bit more apparent, it seems drier, and spicier.
    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.

    Where’s @Mr. Prince

    I’ll say TF Sole di Positano. Mugler cologne. Anything fresh, citrus/floral.

    I would never have thought that two or three extra sprays would make a scent better than two sprays of the same scent. Maybe only because you can smell it better because there's more of it.

    Pomelo Paradis. Overspraying extends the vibrant opening.

    So what, you bump it up to an actual full spray or two?

    This stuff is atomic, when I first got it, I foolishly sprayed my usual 3-4 times, I could almost see spectral clouds of scent choke people around me and the same hands were on my throat, when I looked in the mirror. If I were ever to believe in the infernal, I’d probably think CNH was bottled demons.

    Smells amazing though!

    Overspraying Lapidus Pour Homme makes me smell like the aftershow party at a Pet Shop Boys concert in 86.

    Impossible! When one 'oversprays' a perfume it is always too much!

    It is totally remarkable that you can so accurately describe a truth about LPH. Junior.
    Your statement still stands as hilarious

    No worries! I remember the 80's from mid-decade on, I was just more focused on Atari, Saturday morning cartoons, and playing outside until the streetlights came on. My first ride was a blue banana seat Huffy with playing cards attached by clothespin to the back tire.

    Rogue Perfumery Chypre-Siam. Overspraying yielded a more irresistible mossy dry down.

    Hi there. I agree with the "every fragrance ever" is better oversprayed! In fact, oversprayed shouldn't even be a word! Wonder why it took me a while to see this thread.

    What does overpaying mean though? Does it mean the point where you're choking people out, because that's usually not easy to do.

    It means something different to everyone. For some, that may be anything more than 3 sprays. To others, 6 sprays is normal and "over spraying" might be 10+ sprays.

    Seconding Lapidus pour Homme-when over-sprayed, it actually reveals even more complex facets of its wonderful development

    also adding Mugler Cologne-while quite the opposite of the fairly powerhouse Lapidus, this one can quite easily adapt to a larger number of sprays, since its freshness allows for that rather flexible amount used/applied

    Name a scent that smells even better when you overspray it

    For me:

    1. Polo Green - go heavy and be rewarded... just like back in middle school!
    2. Blue de Chancel EDP and EDT - something about BdC for me...it really clicks with a heavier application
    3. Silver Mountain Water - I sort of like a few extra sprays of this one also
    4. Dior Homme - if I'm just home alone, I kind of enjoy some extra sprays of this one also.

    On a completely different note, one that gets ruined for me with one too many sprays is SOPFH.
