You should never wipe, it makes the fragrance disperse quicker. Spray then leave.

4-6 around the neck, underneath ears, both wrists, back of hands, 4-6 in hair. 4-6 on clothes if I know the fragrance won’t stain.

Wondered why I never got good longevity, now I know. Thanks LFC

I do 1/2 sprays max. Maybe that's why longevity is shite for me for most fragrances.

surely it depends on the fragrance… for a heavy fragrance like tuscan leather anything above 4 sprays will be unbearable

2 neck
2 cheek
2 small ones near ears (sometimes)

Carry around one of them tiny atomisers to do 2-3 small sprays throughout day/night.

Just to also put a good one out there before Christmas that you can buy for your Mrs but use yourself on the sly -

Widian Liwa is like God’s piss. Proper nice sweet smelling goodness and lasts really well.

5-8 spray recommendation, 12-15 for moistmaker

£215 for 50ml so 15 sprays is about £6.50 worth!

Big hitter territory

Too many sprays no matter how fragrant the smell is not pleasant and causes nausea. Can imagine LFC walking by a crowd and causing death and that's not just because he's a big man with a ponytail.

What’s peoples fave winter scents, fancy trying something new.

Done TF Tobacco Vanille and really liked it, like Kilian Back To Black too but it just doesn’t last on me at all.

Not sure it's specifically winter, but one I really like is Itasca Lubin. Bottle is batshit crazy, but one of the best woody scents I've tried.

Edit. they might have updated the bottle.

For a cheaper alternative to more expensive fragrance I’ve found Eden to be really good. £24 for 50ml, the Virgin Island Water and BR540 they do is really good which are the ones I’ve tried.

Got this in the Harrods 10% off as it’s an exclusive for there. Nothing but compliments so far and long lasting. Thomas Kosmala No.4

cheers for the recommendation. been using a sample of BR540 and I like it, but maybe slightly too feminine. picked this up today and it's great.

Been my best buy this year I’d say. For the money compared with br540 it’s a no brainer for me with it being more masculine.

I still like the odd spray of br540 with this though as I do love the sweetness plus it smells amazing on the Mrs so will always have a need for it rather than replacing it.

Wore a Bvlgari Tygar sample over the weekend and loved it. I just can’t justify the price for that though at the minute Cry
