But in general, most Creed last long on me. The shortest lasting one on me is MI, but still good for an hour of 2,3.
So, short longevity is a problem for most, but long longevity too? Confusing...
What's the ideal longevity for a fragrance then? 4 hrs?
I think longevity to be a good thing, usually. It's when the scent just will not leave, even with a thorough scrubbing that it is intrusive.
I actually have this problem more so with Vetiver Extraordinare and Hove Parfumer's Vetivert. I know Vetiver is a potent basenote but I have to wonder what type of "fixative" might be in some scents to keep them alive on the skin?
I know Joop! has hydrogenated castor oil and that Gendarme has glycerin but I question some of the other more potent/high sillage scents just as I wonder why some others don't last at all. Is it just a question of potent basenotes or is it a "fixative" of some type or maybe just a higher concentration or quality of oils or maybe all of the above?
