HI Guys,

Wanted to ask you about what do you guys think about this idea, so there is this YouTuber called Curly Fragrance (A Woman Actually) I think based out of Netherlands and she has this weird style of starting the Video, before starting every video she asks men to tighten Testicles and get it in Place before you watch her Videos lol ! And that is how she starts her Video lol !

She was talking about in one video on what she does and recommends for her Fragrance to stay longer and project better.

So this lady suggests to spray about 20-23 sprays of any perfume. And also she says to use some perfume oils for e.g. Abdul Samad Al Qureshi’s Deer Musk and Mandarin Musk and then spray your perfume over it. And by doing this she says the perfume will last longer.

My question is will these Perfume Oils not have their own scent and with the name they sound like potent scented oils, will they not conflict with the Fragrance I want to use over it as even the oils will have their own scent and thereby making a cocktail of things. How ill it help making the perfume project better ?when there is a high chance your end result might smell completely different to what you were intending it to be.

Has anyone used these Perfume Oils to layer before using your ultimate fragrance to project it better ?

Your thoughts gentlemen ?

I sometimes layer a perfumed oil or cream with my fragrance, provided said oil or cream is either scented with the same fragrance or compliments it somehow.

To layer a fragrance with a clashing perfumed oil is... counterproductive, to say the least. And 20-23 sprays? That sounds BONKERS. Imagine riding an elevator with that person. You'd be unconscious after three floors.

She's very attractive, engaging, fun and entertaining.

She's long been know for the whole "sissy sprayer" thing. That's part of her gimmick.

But bear in mind., as hot as she is, nobody is going to give her shyt if she overdoes it on the fragrance. Given the physical shape she's in, she'd probably kick the crap out of anyone who bugged her about it.

If you smack yourself with 20+ sprays, it isn't so likely to go overlooked or be well received. I can go a little trigger heavy from time to time, but take what she says with a grain of salt. She's there to entertain and get views. This isn't a woman giving you heartfelt advice. This is a business for her. She's not just some hot babe giving out free advice for guys to lure women. She's an influencer and they get paid money to push things.

I notice she's giving you brand names for the oils to "extend" the scent. You don't suppose they may have paid her for mention that do you?

If you put on a scented oil, the scented oil will have its own scent. It will not make your EdT last longer. That's total rubbish.

There are some people who dabble with using unscented moisturizers that say they get good results.

You seem to be smitten with her beauty. You are praising her over the roof. To me she Gives a Tomboy Vibe.

But as they say to each its own.

I am actually thinking to follow her advice. Even with heavy duty performers like Memo, Interlude-53 I am not happy with the performance I get out of 7-8 sprays so I would actually start spraying maybe about 12-13 sprays.

Especially with Stronger with You series. I love SWY Absolutely and Intensely but not very happy with the projection that they give even after 8 sprays So I would now double it. Who the effing cares if others get choked or whatever. If I like it I will do it.😉

Egg-zactly.

A fragrance tends to last longer on moisturized skin for some reason.

She has a direct, no-nonsense "masculine" manner, but no tomboy would wear that much makeup. She probably loses about three pounds every time she washes her face.

She's got 181,000 subscribers, I'd say more than a few find her engaging.

Of course she does. She is conventionally attractive in a gazonka way, and she appeals to those who see fragrance as nothing but some power tool to get compliments or get laid.

And I noticed there's a link to a video of Antonio Centeno of Real Men, Real Style (a hawker of canned "masculinity") "reacting" to hers. It makes sense they're friends; they appeal to the same demographics.

Stop watching YouTube


Seriously she's the last person I'd take any advice from.

I'm all for applying a high quality oil, I wear oils predominantly and occasionally a spray on top.

My skin doesn't perform well, it's just a fact that some of our bodies and senses don't perform as well as others.

Stay hydrated! Water in, lotion on and don't apply excessively as TOO MUCH too near to your nose will ACCELERATE olfactory fatigue.

God, it's only 7 years ago that I was part of that demographic, seems like a lifetime ago! It was Antonio who told me Jeremy was great and for a few weeks I actually believed him, the lying bastard! 😄

I like the comments:

I call this normal :) A designer fragrance for me let's say Versace Dylan Blue if wearing a shirt. I'll have about 20 sprays over the shirt. On me around 20 sprays which will be on my chest, arms, and neck.10 sprays on armpits too lol Also I spray on my trousers , jeans, and trainers :) :) Curly you missed this out :) For niche let's say Oud satin Mood I'll spray altogether about 20, and Boadicea the Victorious Blue sapphire about 12. My fragrance bottles finish quickly:) The advice regarding spraying after a shower is absolutely 100% correct. Also I've seen many reviewers spraying on their hands and wrists. Don't they wash their hands after they go-to the bathroom?
🤮
I'm quite sure that if Curly did not spend time in the Middle East she would not have this attitude 100% The real issue is lack of confidence. There are not many spray perfumes on the market today that after 5- 6 hours still project strongly.PEACE

20+ sprays?! :ROFLMAO: I might would do it before walking into a slaughter house!

There are some very light fragrances that I "overspray" by using 6-8 sprays. Otherwise, everything gets 1 to 4 sprays depending on its tenacity. Applying oils will not typically help projection but in some cases assists the 'density' or 'richness' of the wearing, and it may even help longevity. All depends on the oil. Want a more earthy experience to your vetiver fragrance? You can apply some pure vetiver essential oil. But folks really need to be careful with oils, as some can cause adverse reactions.
