    hi,

     

    i'm into this fragrance hobby for 3-4 years now and i did not have longevity issus since now.

    i usually spray on my arms.

     

    Gucci pour homme 1

    Terre d'hermès pure perfume

    CDG 2Man

     

    Those scents used to last on me for hours.

    Now they're gone within one hour

     

    what can i do? 

    I spray 2-3 times

    Have you tried spraying on your clothes instead of your skin (or in addition to it)?  Those scents should last more than an hour for sure.  Perhaps Olfactory Fatigue?

    Yes, i tried spraying it on my clothes too.

    but sill i hardly detect them after 1h or so.

     

    is my nose broken ?

    I don't think anything is wrong with your skin. Use an unscented lotion before applying your fragrance. That should help.

    Yes, try this.

    You may want to check to see if other people can smell it.  Sometime my nose gets used to a scent and I stop smelling it, but others comment on it so apparently, the scent is still going strong.

    This has happened to me on occasion also.

    It could be your dry skin. Or it could be improper storage making the juice go bad. Or it could just be you're too used to them. Experiment!

    Thats excellent news! However, you're not really sure of how the perfume was stored before it came into your possession are you? This is really what i was referring to. If it was a blazing hot warehouse for a year, that'll do it!

    of course.

    i just wanted you guys to check out my storing conditions.

    they seem ok, don't they ?

    The temperature is great! However possibly more importantly, you should keep them out of direct sunlight. That obviously wouldnt be an issue if it was sitting new in box at the sellers storage facility just boiling, cant be a good thing for its overall composition.

     

    I'd imagine these guys don't want to pay for climate control.

    Your nose is broken and there's no cure for it. It's probably olfactory fatigue. Same thing happens to me with Aventus (most Creed, but Aventus seems to do it the worst). I can't smell it on me after an hour unless I put my nose inches away from my wrist. Put it definitely still projects as I get compliments long after I quit smelling it. Even spraying your clothes isn't necessarily going to combat olfactory fatigue. I sprayed Aventus on my chest one morning, then later that evening applied Bond No 9 New Haarlem whilst wearing the same shirt. Long story short, when I took that shirt off, I could still smell the Aventus, and it was pretty strong. So I'd just ask others to smell you and see what they say. Another method is spray each wrist once and avoid smelling them frequently. Since your nose isn't being bombarded by the fragrance, you should be able to smell for much longer.

    As a last resort, why not try it.

    I was having this same issue, and then I started spraying on my chest.  For some reason, if I spray on my wrists/forearms, the scent disappears in an hour.  On my chest, it will last all day.  I think the skin on my arms is dryer and is also in constant contact with something.  I also tend to constantly smell my wrist, which can't help with nose fatigue.
