    Hi, although I realize it is purely a commercial scent, probably designed by a committee, I quite like Bleu De Channel. †However, as it does not come in Eau De Parfume format it does not seem to last very long on me. Therefore would some of you experienced basenoters please recommend something which smells as identical as possible but in parfume and with longevity. Thank you for your help

    I found it to have good longevity.
    When you say 'not ... very long', how short a time are we talking about ?
    Is it possible others can still smell it, but you've become habituated to it ?

    I get very good longevity from it also.

    Get at least 7 hours of longevity with Bleu.

    Bleu De Chanel has average longevity. †Not bad. †Not good.

    My suggestion. †Carry a little sprayer of it with you. †

    Better than trying to find a scent to replace it.

    Usually, at least its longevity as a skin scent, as opposed to a more heavily projecting/overpowering one, is good.†

    I have read and had success with using an unscented moisturiser to increase the longevity of a scent, maybe give this a try?

    First of all my apologies for incorrect spelling of Chanel. †

    Thank you all for your considered replies, kind of you to take the time and trouble. †In hindsight maybe I have misjudge the longevity and will now ask work colleagues if they can still smell it on me during the latter part of the day. †If not I will use a top up spray from time to time as suggested.

    Thanks again

    For a modern fresh scent, the longevity of Bleu de Chanel is very good on my skin. An 8am-5pm performer. thumbup.gif

    It's a fragrance that has good longevity. My friend uses it. From 7am to 2pm I can still smell it.

    That's a decent amount of time.

    Hi again.†

    I usually spray about half a dozen squirts around my neck and throat before buttoning my shirt up. I guess gandhajala is correct and that I become habituated to it.† Is that a phenomenon of all scents, that in time our brain gets overloaded with the smell and just ' switches our noses off' ' ?

    I will try the unperfumed skin cream suggestion as well, and thank you for the idea.

    Half à dozen sprays around your neck? =-O
    You exaggerate man, it's a big olfactory fatigue you'll get.

    I get decent longevity too usually 4-5 sprays for pretty much most of the day or evening, it's always a good idea to ask someone else if they can still smell it. I find that to be true of many scents, at least for me because often someone else still can when I †no longer can. †I really like Bleu de Chanel
