Topic: Strongest smelling perfume

Hello everyone! I'm kinda new to the perfumes forum, and I have trouble in finding the best perfumes.

For you, what is the STRONGEST perfume? I would prefer men's perfume, but comments for strongest women perfume would be welcome as well (since I wear some heavy women scents too).

By strongest, I mean, the greatest in both sillage and longevity. Something that may induce headaches when oversprayed (that's my kind of perfume hehe).

Re: Strongest smelling perfume

Do you enjoy getting headaches or causing them? lol  Well from what I smell, and these are ones I can't stand or stomach because so strong, but maybe your cup of tea:

Re: Strongest smelling perfume

WOW! Thank you for the fast responses!! I should have tried this when I entered the site smile)

I do wear chanel no. 5. Surprisingly, it's not strong on me. I think my skin has this tendency to "eat up" the fragrance, I don't know why. Some perfumes last only for like 30 minutes in me -_-. Btw, maybe my living in a tropical country somehow causes this (I'm from the Philippines).

Re: Strongest smelling perfume

I've owned these cognes and i can say that just 1 or 2 sprays is MORE than enough. the scent stays for days after it's been applied.  These are very strong, concentrated colognes so overspraying will guarantee a headache.

This has an amazing sillage ... but I believe it belongs to the women.

Re: Strongest smelling perfume

Thank you very much for the suggestions superglad. I used to have a bottle of Dior Poison back in High School because my mom hated it so much. I love it, though it's feminine, but I think I can pull it off superglad
