how is cool waters longevity when compared with above mentioned fragrances ?
Ya your Cool Water looks fine, just wondering about the cap being somewhat transparent. As for those other frags, I haven't tried any of those, and I'm not sure which Diesel you're referring to.. if it's the original.. that one is pretty hard to find, I would love to try it as I am a fan of their house.
I used to be in denial for so long about olfactory fatigue. But when you get people telling you "wanna spray anymore than the whole bottle on you" and such, or you get into areas that open up a bit more, and you can really suddenly smell your juice projecting, and even calling attention to yourself.. then you know. You gotta train your nose if you really wanna enjoy some fragrances. But again, it could also very well just be the combination with the fragrance on your skin, I know a friend who's black and has very dry skin, and wears Cool Water and only gets about an hour longevity out of it. He keeps a smaller 1.35 oz bottle in his car to reapply before, during and after work. So it all just depends. Of course oily skin is gonna hold any fragrance better. It could also be top note fatigue. Where you get too intrigued and obsessed with those top notes, and then when the top notes fade, you and your nose think there's nothing left. Exhale a bit away from your skin, make sure there's no odors lingering, then go in for a big whiff of it, and see what you get out of it. Sounds ridiculous huh, lol, but these things are ways to let yourself know what the fragrance is doing.
I've never tried Aqva either, but I hear its a longevity monster, so that lasting all day on your wrists is about right.
I myself get victimized by top note fatigue from time to time, it can't be helped. But you gotta work with the fragrance, give it time. I used to think IZOD only lasted 30 mins on my skin, but more recently I've been getting much more out of it since I'm not getting so fixated on its fantastic top notes. IZOD is just one example of the many I currently own that do this. It also really really really helps to have a bigger collection of fragrances, to alternate. This way, when you put one back on that you haven't worn in say 2 weeks, it becomes something very special, something you've been looking forward to, and something your nose will appreciate more and not take for granted.
