Here's the deal, I am very interested in finding out exactly how each fragrance's projection lasts. Usually when people talk about longevity, they define as how long it takes for the fragrance to COMPLETELY fade on their skins. But that's not what I want to know here. I believe how long a fragrance PROJECTS is a far more important aspect of its longevity. Most fragrances last a long time on the skin, but for the most part, they stop projecting past the first few hours and are just there as skin scents. Since I don't really want to be sniffing myself all day, I prefer to know the projection longevity on each fragrance that I own. In this thread you can report on how how long the projection of your fragrances last on your skin. Please also tell us how you apply your fragrances.

For me, I test the projection longevity by making a mental note of the period between the application of the fragrance to the time that I got the last whiff of the scent without deliberately searching for it (no sniffing my wrist nor tucking my nose under my shirt).

I have a skin chemistry that loves to eat fragrance for both lunch and breakfast. A lot of projection monsters simply do not perform on my skin. I tend to do 4 sprays: 2 on the chest and 1 on each wrist.

Here what I have to report so far on projection longevity:

Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio: 3.5 hours (3pm to 6:30pm)

Giorgio Armani Armani Code: 2 hours (6:30pm to 8:30pm)

Gucci Pour Homme II: 3 hours (2pm to 5pm)

Creed Green Irish Tweed: 6 hours (11am to 5pm)

Please submit your findings as well.
