    Range

    I thought having a place to post range estimates might be useful. Probably need some dosages too. I'm also interested in other companies because of carriers, diffusions and sileage etc.

    Even though a XiSt Spray has a faster hit, I should STILL go with an Oil despite the unneeded longevity, because it going to cut deeper into the target?
    If you have both then go with both spray will be a hard hit at the begging while the oil is ramping up.

    In the past, I have always used to gauge whether I should use an Oil or Spray based on how long I want it to be working for, not based on how long the targets are exposed to the products, in other words
    - Less than 6 hrs = Spray
    - More than 6 hrs = Oil

    How significant are the acceleration and top speed differences would you say is between Sprays and Oils?
    Let's assume an indoor environment of 80*F and the target is 3-4 feet away

    With the exception of Domination, sprays. With oils I would say its approximately the same just reduced by 1/2 the radius, but the impact is stronger.

    And also the speed is a lot slower to hit with an oil

    I like Parfum extrait the best. Some fragrance I only need 1 spray and it stays whole day with good projection and sillage.

    EDP may have better longevity and sillage (not projection) for the scent itself but on some fragrance, EDT is better. EDT vs EDP scent wise, they are quite different.

    For aiding pheros diffusion and range, it all depends on the synthetic chemicals they use as ingredients. I don’t think it’s because they are EDT, EDP or Parfum fragrances.

    I see. We can discuss more on fragrance in my SOTD thread.

    Fragrance plays a huge role in helping diffusion of our pheros so any members reading this thread might be interested in that thread as well.

Unless you spend a small fortune on a retailers bottle then the only way to know you are getting a legit purchase and not a knock off is get a decant online. I have never had a decant that's a dud. The sellers already make enough profit to consider selling fakes

You see, fragrance bottles at stores when you go and smell it may not be from the same batch as what decant sellers have so it is best to buy just a ml or up to 10ml to test on your skin first.

    Not only just those batch differences, decant scents may have lower quality and faster expiration. Most full bottles come with a designed /sealed cap that prevent air/oxygen to get inside. Decanting from these bottles let the liquid expose to air/oxygen. Usually the top notes are mostly gone gone or lighter than usual in decants.

    A well kept bottle can be kept for decades without its scent going bad especially parfum or edp concentration so it’s well worth it to get decant to find something you really like then invest in the full bottle.

    I too have many 2, 5 and 10ml decants. I also have made my own decants. The decants have lesser scent quality.
