That too has proven too little, so tomorrow I am going to return the 4.2 and shell out the extra $125 for an 8 oz flacon. I think that's the only way that I am going to be able to keep a reasonable stock on hand for a while. The only thing I have problems with is longevity as I don't get more than a couple hours MAXIMUM out of this, regardless of batch number. I don't think it's nasal fatigue, but it may be. My only wish is that for the price it lasted a minimum of 10 hours. Then, it'd be an 11 out of 10!
I would honestly be pretty surprised if this wasn't olfcatory fatigue. Aventus seems to have this issue with quite a few people. Fortunately I don't have this problem & I've never gotten anything less than beastly longevity from it. It's pretty potent stuff & I can usually smell it on myself for almost 24 hours. In fact, I put it on this morning (about 15 hours ago) & can still easily smell it from the back of my hand right now. I only have a couple of frags that can even come close to matching it. BTW, enjoy the 8 oz. flacon! I'm jealous...if I could afford it, I would get the biggest flacon I could! I'm currently rationing my 50 ml, but man would I love to wear it with reckless abandon...
Ah well, I think wearing it a bit less often allows me to appreciate it even more (at least that's what I tell myself to feel better about not having more).
