    I am really having trouble finding something with longevity of more than a couple of hours. Any suggestions out there? Thanks.

    One suggestion is to spray your clothing. People say that there is a possibility of staining with the colognes that have color but I've sprayed my white shirts with every color cologne and never seen a stain.

    Another suggestion is to put lotion on your body before you apply. I have heard that helps a little but I don't really know how. I've tried it and havn't noticed much of a difference but give it a shot.

    Welcome by the way!

    Those are my suggestions. If a cologne is weak then you mostly just have to deal with it...

    Even colognes like A*men and M7 don't last on me but thanks for the tips

    One thing you have to be aware of is fragrance fatigue. Not that you are getting tired of fragrances but that after smelling the same smell for a while your sense of smell starts to ignore that scent. Because of this it is REALLY hard to judge for yourself if the scent is still there. I know that I've received complements on fragrances that I've been wearing long after I though they were long gone. So I would suggest that you get feedback from a friend as to find out if a fragrance is still there or not.

    It is also a very good idea to get feedback on how much you spray. It is VERY easy to over apply based on what you smell.

    Isnīt spraying your clothing a big no-no? Iīve got the experience that it stinks more than it smells when doing that. I also have problems removing the perfume afterwards.
