    Default Can a male wear 4-5 sprays of br540

    Hello all I was wondering how much sprays of 540 edp i can wear? I usually wear 5 sprays of lost cherry aventus mandarino di amalfi etc but for br540 I get nose blind super quick and I can’t tell the performance on me. I asked a friend and she is anosmic. I like wearing frags to be noticed so I don’t want to wear little. But I also don’t want to smell like I shower in it.

    In this case can I do 4-5 or is that too much?

    Thx

    4-5 should be okay. You could go 2-3 sprays as well if you feel uneasy.

    Not advisable lol.. 2 or 3 at most, but anymore than that and you likely to push people away. At least in my opinion.

    The only thing a male should wear 4-5 sprays of is WD40
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Nose blind is common with this one, so be careful

    Try this -

    Spray the top of each forearm once.
    One spray to the back of the neck.

    Thats a total of 3 sprays and thats plenty, plus you shouldn’t go noseblind but you should still get wafts throughout the day.



    If you spray more I’ll know.

    I don't see why not. I personally couldn't though.

    From what I remember of my BR 540 sample I doubt anyone should even need more than 2 sprays at absolute max and 1 spray is already likely going to get picked up by others.

    Agree with the 2-3 sprays tops. You're welcome to try more, but not sure what attention you'd draw to yourself, if that matters.

    Depends where you spray. I've been spraying 3 to 4 under the shirt of most of my frags, plus 1 or two more outside. There are exceptions, but I've done it with BR540. I like the diffusive nature of the internal sprays, which then escape throughout the day as I move around. If you're doing direct sprays though, I would go 2 to 3.

    .5-1 sprays might be ideal, if you must.

    5 sprays might cause a small earthquake.

    I overspray EVERYTHING. Even Knize Ten. I bathe in my perfumes. Go ahead, bro, the sky is the limit!

    It hits pretty hard and can become cloying quickly.

    If you’re outdoors and it’s really chilly... Maybe... Then again, maybe not...

    If you’re indoors, 2 sprays max...

    I sampled this one and 3 sprays was overbearing, teetering on the edge of obnoxious; I actually annoyed myself with 3 sprays...
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    I think 3 sprays max. It may not seem like you are projecting but BELIEVE me, you are definitely projecting. I have shirts that I have worn wearing BR540 Extrait that have caused my entire room to smell like BR until I wash it.

    Strong stuff... haven’t experienced this one yet maybe later this year but all the reviews I’ve read were 1-2 sprays with this one.

    I also want to add that I love this juice. Instant mood enhancer.

    Can you? Yes.

    Should you? No.

    Even if you don't choke yourself out, you'll risk choking out anybody else in the room. There's a difference between smelling good and being a fragrance air horn. This stuff is very strong.

    Why not? While definitely on the stronger side, still not extremely heavy overapplication with this number of sprays.
