Ladies, how many sprays of perfume to get it just right?

I've got a curious question…

How much perfume do you spray on so that it gives you a subtle fragrance that is noticeable to others, but not offensively overpowering?

it really depends on the perfume. some are really strong and one is enough. i spray on my neck then touch the area with my wrists and then touch my earlobes with my wrists. dior addict is super strong and you barely need one spray! if it gets too strong then i wet a washcloth and dab on my neck. i've read you're never supposed to rub your perfume (wrist-wrist or neck-wrist) as this will destroy the scent crystals (?? sounds weird but it was in black and white so must be true lol).

  1. I spray four on my neck. And two sprays on my right wrist and rub it onto my left wrist.
    I can't smell if on myself but people always ask what i'm wearing so maybe it's just we can't smell it on ourselves.

    2! right in front of you, and walk into it. add another squirt behind the earlobes as you have pulse points there which help heat the fragrance and more 'smellable'

  3. I like one squirt on each wrist, and one squirt on my neck. It's subtle, but pleasurable to those who get close!

  4. One spray!!!! some people overdue it becuase you get use to thier own perfume after wearing it for only 5 minutes!!! so they add more and more until they can smell it again, but then its five times stronger to everyone else! just respray every 2 hours or so and you'll be fine!!!

  6. It depends on the perfume, as some smell more strongly than others. As a rule I'd say never more than 5 spritzes.

  7. depends on the strenght of the perfume. just spray in your pulse points like in the your jaw and wrist.

  9. It really depends on the perfume.
    For lighter perfumes I spray once on each wrist & once on the neck.
    For really strong perfumes I spray the space in front of me and walk through it. That way you can still smell it but it's not overpowering. :)

  10. You should apply perfume to pulse points. One or two sprays is apt.

  11. i just spray as much as i can smell it on every inch of my body! and hair just about 2 sprays each wetness area or something?

  12. Less is more. One gentle spritz to the throat area, maybe a spritz on each elbow. The heat of your body will transmit the fragrance. I have seen women spritz into the air and walk through it, too.

    it really does depend on the perfume, i have really light perfume that you can squirt about 5 times. then again i have heavy perfume that if you squirted more than once you'd kill any nearby animals.

    light…vera wang princess
    heavy..angel thierry mugler..

    just some examples

    i use 3 sprays on my neck, one behind each ear and one on each wrist. I'm heavy handed with perfumes, so dont follow my example. The correct way is apparently, one on the neck, one on each wrist, (never rub in) and one behind each ear. To leave that lingering attractiveness, spray the air in front of you lightly, and walk through it..

  17. Oh my! 3-5 spritz!? I hate when people use way too much. They walk past me and I get sick to my stomach from the smell! I use one (two max) so that someone walking very close gets a slight scent, but it doesn't cause them to gag. Even the most wonderful smelling perfume will be horrible if you use too much. I would say one if it's strong (I use Vera Wang – Princess and one spritz in the chest/neck region is more than enough) or if you have a light perfume twice. Seriously, DON'T overdo it!
