    Default How much sprays per day ?

    Hey all, I have a question...
    Yeah you will answer me that depends of the fragrance, I agree with you but every time i borrow one of my fragrance for my brother or others, they need just 3 sprays for having a good smell all along the day.

    And when I spray 5 times I don't think that I smell thaaaaat good, I think this is just my strange brain haha

    What do you think about it ?

    3-6 for me depending on fragrance and strength of fragrance being used.

    5-6 is the minimum, lowest limit usually-however it can reach an average value of around 8 to 10, if also including the days of 20 plus dabs/sprays for calculating a median

    I typically use 6-10 sprays (closer to 6-7 than 10) when I'm wearing something.

    I change my perfume after shower each day, so it turns out to 12-20 sprays per day.

    I've cut down on my application. Till about 2018 I would use 8-12 sprays.

    The number of sprays can vary wildly due to the fragrance, the weather, the environment I plan to be in, my plans for the day, etc. I don't mind applying more when I am by myself at home. I won't bother anyone else. If I'm at work, 3 sprays max for most of my wardrobe and if it's a strong fragrance, only one spray. Basically 2 shots to the chest and one to a single arm. The next day i alternate to the other arm and to the neck instead of the chest, then the next day back the other way. 3 sprays tops is a good rule and it's important to learn the strength of your fragrances and which ones you need to dial back to 1 spray for offices or small locations.

    Also, I live in a dry climate, so my fragrance just don't project easily. But if it rains and the humidity goes up then my fragrance can go super beastmode suddenly choke out people 10-feet away out of nowhere. So I try to look at the weather forecast to make sure sudden storms aren't likely to blow through.

    If you live in a humid climate already, your rule might be for just a single spray no matter. Some people report that humid climates tend to case the fragrance to lose power within hours, so an atomizer might be okay to use but make really sure you aren't anosmic to the scent or you'll choke people out and not even realize your scent is strong.

    I am reluctantly and officially turning in my membership to the Oversprayers Club.

    In the past few months of experimenting with amount and location, I have learned to live with 4 sprays (both pecs under my shirt and both forearms).

    Obviously that varies a bit fragrance to fragrance. Royal Oud yesterday, was only 3 sprays. Dior Homme Parfum, same. Tuscan Leather might only get 2. La Nuit De L'Homme however... probably still gonna be 12 sprays of that one lol. That being said, I often wear two different fragrances in a day, so my total is probably around 8 sprays/day.

    Depends on what it is, sometimes I go conservative while other times I go liberal on on the application.

    Depends on the fragrance, some only need 1 or 2 sprays (unless you want to make birds fall out of the sky), stuff like Black Orchid and such, others around 3, 4, 5. Anything that needs more sprays than that I don't consider worth owning.

    If I will be in close quarters with others, 3 to 5 sprays is typical. I do occasionally like to overspray. If I really want to make a statement or have a scent cloud, any number or sprays will do - the upper end of which being 10 to 12. Sometimes I will put on a couple refresher sprays later in the day.

    Default Re: How much sprays per day ?

    Two or three sprays usually. If it is an extrait or a powerhouse, I just do one.

    As others have mentioned it really depends on what you’re applying. Once you get to know a fragrance you really kinda know before going in how much you’re going to spray. Generally I have guide:

    From a bottle I own: 2-3 sprays
    From a sample vial: 3-6 sprays
    Powerhouse: 1-2 sprays

    Placement itself varies.

    Office: Behind the ears or back of neck (never both) + (maybe!) a small spray on chest*

    Casual: [same as above] + upper arms*

    Date night: [same as above] + 1 extra spray in upper chest* . . . but this rarely happens for me so it’s a near non-stat (lol!)

    Summer: Because it’s a different type of scent (usually a cologne) I’ll add 1 spray to the upper forearms*

    * And always the tiniest spurt (half a spray, less if I’m dexterous) on my outer left wrist . . . that one is just for me to enjoy and monitor its development throughout the day.

    I've been varying. It can be as little as 3 which use to be my mainstay or as much as 10 or more. I'd say an average of 6.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    At the minimum, I do 4. If it's a weaker fragrance, I go maybe 2 more to the body, maybe 2 to the clothing.

    A heavy fall/winter scent will work just fine with 1-2 sprays (Spiritueuse Double Vanille for example), while certain spring/summer scents require 4-8 to last 6+ hours (Still Life or L'Artisan's Mandarine for exmaple). It really depends on the composition of the perfume.

    usually 3 -
    2 on back of neck, 1 cleavage.
    evening out/special events I add on, maybe
    Depending on the event and the scent,
