    Definitely Yohji Pour Homme (the new one)....fresh, slightly marine like....quite modern and wearable, alas wished it would last longer. Still, had to pick it up from good ol Changi Aiport.

    Blenheim Bouquet and, to a lesser extent, Floris Santal EdT. The EdP Santal lasts 12+ hours on me. I have 5 L'Artisans (PdE, Dzing, Mechant Loup, VdR and Timbuktu) and they all last a long time on my skin. Dzing easily lasts 12 hours for me and projects VERY well. I'm always surprised to hear others complain about its longevity and sillage, I must be the freak.

    Eau D'Orange Vert

    Miller Harris Tangerine Vert (is much better than the above and last a little longer but not long enough)

    Citrus Bigarade (a dive citrus, in fact, the most divine citrus but terribly short lived)

    Hi Sarjeet,
    Actually, I didn't get much staying power out of the old Yohji either.

    That's curious, you're the same as me with Bouquet, but opposite on the other two. Anyhow, seems to me that you are more blessed, rather than freakish.

    How does Santal EdT strength sit with you? Maybe we're 50% in agreement....

    It lasts a standard 7 or 8 hours on me, it's not a weak 3 or 4 hour one like most of my weakies.

    Most Parfumerie Generale's like Coze 02, Cologne Grand Siecle and a few L'Artisan; Patchouli patch, Passage d'Enfer and Fou d'Absinthe, fade away in minutes. (Timbuktu and Dzing are just okay.) Beware for the remakes of Nino Cerruti pour homme and Smalto pour homme: their staying power is below zero! Costume National's Scent Intense and Amouage Dia are also poor.

    I, too, wish these Creeds would exhibit greater longevity. I will also add Chevrefuille as my nominee for the shortest lived Creed. It is a shame, because all are great for the first hour - then poof!

    Erolfa, though it does drift back from time to time.

    Wink Re: Your Top 3 Scents Without Staying Power

    I wouldn't waste my money on a scent that didn't have lasting power. All my scents basically kick butt. There are too many that are strong & give you what you demand from a fragrance, why purchase a wimpy one? I know sometimes it is tempting, because there are some that I test, that do smell beautiful, but if they fade within two hours, I don't buy them.

    3-4 hours is about as long as most things last on me, but I can get a few hours out of Silver Mountain Water by applying a whole lot of it. It's the kind of thing that doesn't get very strong, even with alot, unlike Opium EDP where I almost choked someone, because I'd been staying home most of the day and I kept on putting on more just for my own sake...

    My fleeting favourites are Eau d'Orange Verte and the Bvlgari Teas.

    Holy Cow yonggoh! On me Versace Dreamer has the longevity of a soul in Dante's Inferno! I have to shower/scrub it/sandpaper it off the night I have worn it during that day or live with it in my dreams until if finally fades mostly away by morning, although sheets, pillocases and bedclothes still have it's scent in the AM>

    Versace - Metal Jeans.
    L'Artisan - Dzing!.
    L'Artisan - Fou d'Absinthe (Haven't gotten a bottle yet though.)
    - Rich
    As always, disregard most of what I say. It's not worth your heart health to actually worry about what a 23 year old guy from Kansas thinks. Even if he is really ridiculously good looking.

    L'Artisan - Tea for Two. I love it, but it's pretty much gone in 30 minutes.

    There are a bunch of fragrances I don't love that also are short-lived. Most seem to last 3-5 hours for me. The strange exception is A*Men, which is still going strong the next morning from just one spray. It's too bad that I'm rarely in an A*Men mood...

    Creed Millesime Imperial: I only wear it in the warmer summer months (June-August) when my skin tends to be less dry. Takes two coats of 5-7 sprays to get more than eight hours.

    L'Artisan Navegar: Suffers from PE (Premature Evaportaion). Left in less than four hours and never even returned my calls. I still think about it from time to time.

    Mark Birley: One of the best clean smelling fragrances I have ever tested. Same issue as with Creed MI.

    Not many of you like it ,but I would love a more intense version of JOOP! Rococo for Men.
