    I have started to use Armani and Dunhill edt's Armani He and Dunhill Desire Blue, neither seem to last all day, and neither seem to be the fresh clean smell im looking for, any suggestions

    Apart from the fragrance itself, one's skin type can affect the longevity of a scent.

    There may be sillage that you are unaware of. It might be worth asking some of your friends/colleagues if they can still smell your fragrance hours after application.

    Recommendations for something fresh & clean smelling?

    Mugler's cologne (longevity will depend on your skin type)
    Acqua di Parma - Colonia
    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    Creed original vetiver
    Hermes Equipage
    Pasha by Cartier
    Let your nose be your pilot

    The problem is that fresh/clean scents naturally last less than heavy scents just because of the notes they use in them. Fruit, citrus and aquatic notes never make it as far as notes like sandlewood and vetiver.

    Some that are better than others are Gendarme 20 and Latitude Longetude. Take a look at those.

    Long lasting fresh scents:

    Gendarme V
    TM Cologne
    Eau d'Issey

    Sung Homme is purportedly long lasting on others, but dies quickly on me. Damn shame... it smells great.

    I am partial to Paco Rabanne PH which manages to be clean and dirty at the same time.
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava

    For fresh and long lasting, I'd highly recommend TM Cologne. This was my SOTD, and after applying only two spritzes, I can still catch whiffs of it.

    Gendarme is long lasting as well; your own nose may become habituated quite quickly, while others can still smell it.

    Oh man! I just smelled Gendarme for the second time today. I have heard all good things re: this one. God help me: I smelled *nothing*. Nothing!

    One that I have said lasts forever on me:

    Issey Miyake

    For sure!
