    Default Fragrances that get better sillage with drydown


    I get this with Bvlgari Black.
    It starts very light, barely noticable on my skin. I have to hold my wrist against my nose to smell something. But after about 2 hours it has dried down and it has developed very good sillage.

    Most fragrances start to fade more or less shortly after application.
    Do you know of more frags that get stronger on your skin during the day/night?

    Le Myrrhe by Serge Lutens
    It`s not getting stronger - but it becomes more appropriate and pleasing as candied oranges fades away...

    Chypre Coty
    At least my vintage EDT is very bright and fleeting in the top (flowers and herbs) = and in the sillage I get a powerful oakmoss and powdery-woody olibanum. Maybe it`s just my sensitiveness to olibanum?
    Vetiver The Great!!!

    me three...the scent does seem to warm up a bit.
    Overall...IMO it is average.
    Strangley enough...Bulgari Aqua gets a lot better as the hours go by as well.

    Can you tell me a little more about this? I have a small vintage bottle and was expecting a very green woody mossy scent similar to Paloma Picasso Mon Parfumor Chanel No.19 maybe a little softer. Instead I found that this was a very soft, clear scent very rich and classic. Dana Raffinee seems its twin but Coty Chypre is greener and much less warm / honeyed / sweet. Guerlain Mitsouko also shares many characteristics but seems 'dustier'. :-?

    Do you find the same thing?

    I am a complete Chypre devotee and would love to find a twin / replacement for this wonderfully classic. Do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you

    Azzaro Visit does this for me. It just won't quit!

    A*men doesn't have better sillage over time, but it has a different sillage. It starts off very bitter and sharp with the tar note, but later it smoothens out to a nice chocolate/coffee accord.

    Geir
    Acqua di Parma - Colonia

    There is another one I have which is like that, but I can't think of it off the top of my head.

    Hermès - Eau des Merveilles and Comme des Garçons - Skai. Amazing from beginning to end of course, but I think their quality increases a few notches further down the drydown compared to the newly spritzed scents.

    This happens to me with Salvatore Ferragamo pour homme. The clove-cedar-sandalwood accord grows and stays gracefully in the air after the subtle top and middle notes have receded. I sense something similar in Santal Fragonard, the tobacco-amber-y base takes rapidly precedence and rules the entire sillage.
