A little perfume? Good. A lot of perfume? Not so good.

I finally came across a perfume that is exactly what I was looking for
. The only problem is that it is quite strong and the sprayer sprays out too much so the perfume is applied too heavily. How can I moderate that?

Yeah, so Cabotine Perfume is exactly what I was looking for. Fresh, sharp, gingery, clean smelling. I love it. I still wear Alfred Sung Paradise because my husband really loves it on me, and since it is the only perfume I have worn since knowing him he strongly associates me to that scent and vice versa. Nice to have some variation, though, so I have this to be able to mix it up a bit. I don't like to feel totally saturated in scent, though. The fact that it is almost 6 hours since I put it on and I can still smell it quite distinctly when I move/floof my shirt makes me worry it is or is going to be offensive to other people. I like my perfume to be for me to smell without bothering others, and for my husband to smell when he is close and giving me da smoochez.
Problem #1: I bought the eau de parfum instead of the eau de toilette. Oopsie.
Problem #2: the spray on the bottle seems to spray out a LOT. A lot more than I am used to from my Alfred Sung bottle.
Problem #3: spraying in the air and walking through it isn't a good option because on occasion my perfume will trigger my husband's allergies. I can get the majority of it off my skin if I just spray it in one area (between my boobs usually), but if it is all over and in my hair and on my clothes I would basically have to shower and change.
So... how do I solve this?
