: Wow! You got poor longevity from Royal Oud!? That one lasts a minimum of 10 hours on my skin from 2 sprays (1 to the chest and 1 to the upper back / back of my neck). Actually, I'm sure it lasts longer than that, but by 10 hours, it's mostly a skin scent. I'm very surprised how well this one holds up in summer weather, but I suspect it'll really do well in the winter.Montauk
: I really enjoy this one as well. I love the top and the heart, but I'm not crazy about the base it eventually evolves into. The smell of Montauk during the first 4 to 6 hours reminds me so much of another scent... hhhhmmmmm... I wish I could remember what.Hamptons
: It's too feminine on my skin. I'd probably like it on a woman though.Fire Island
: This is one of those wacky Bonds that I just don't get.
I have samples of Kouros
and Body Kouros
on the way too. I've gone too long without getting my nose on those. I signed up for Perfumes For A Buck
to work my way through a bunch of designer samples I'd been meaning to get to. I can't recommend the site yet since I haven't received my first order (just placed it yesterday), but if I recall correctly, BuysBlind thinks pretty highly of it. ...I think?

That's not what Montauk reminds me of... but it is on my list of scents that I plan on trying again because I recall enjoying it at some point.
