    Default Something in Eau Sauvage vibe

    I'm looking for something similar to Eau Sauvage but with better longevity.
    Would you please suggest me some scent?

    What do you guys think of Armani Pour Homme (the old one) for instance?
    I used to have a mini of that but that was a long time ago and I hardly remember how it smelled on skin.

    I own Armani Eau Pour Homme and get nice longevity from it. It is subtle but pleasing for more than 6 hours on me. It fits nicely in the classic citrus category, and I chose it over Eau Sauvage, but that is a matter of taste for each person to choose.

    I also like Versace L'Homme but this one is not really a classic citrus, even though it starts with some at the top. Insane longevity and the drydown is one of my favorites.

    Do you mean the old Versache L'Homme? Never tested it, it's quite hard to find here in Moscow...

    I also recommend Armani Eau pour Homme.

    Yes Versace L'Homme. It was released in 1984. Amazing stuff. Based on your wardrobe, I would say you would love it most likely. Read the reviews in the directory to get a better feel for the drydown. I am not good at explaining or giving visual images of scents, but the reviews should help you out.

    wear the eau sauvage, just apply more. the cumin x jasmine x solid chypre/mildly animalic base give it excellent longevity when applied properly.

    there's no better citrus chypre than eau de rochas homme. you should own it.

    armani eau pour homme is a quality fragrance. rich, virile - contrasted on hard notes (hard as in not soft), though less interesting, more synthetic than the previous two.

    try penhaligon's blenheim bouquet, miller harris citron citron edp, boucheron pour homme edp, patricia de nicolaï's balle de match, goutal's hadrien absolu edp

    I've got to second advice above, specifically:
    1) Stay with ES
    2) Try Signoricci
    3) Try Hadrien Absolu

    Nothing really duplicates the excellence of ES though.

    My two all-time favorites are Eau Sauvage and Chanel pour Monsieur (NOT the Concentrée version). Though they do not smell 100% alike they definitely have a lot in common, especially "The-classy-gentleman-old-school-lemon-feel".

    Try CpM and you will get a pleasant surprise!

    I have no problems generally with ES's longetivity. The trick is where to apply. This is one where the back of the neck does the trick.

    On me Armani EPH dies a quick and merciless death though I like the frag.

    Nothing like it ES. However, Acqua di Parma - Colonia has the same air of elegance as ES along with decent duration, at least on me.

    YSL PH has increased duration but at the expense of elegance, it is more down to earth.

    I really look forward to Eau Sauvage Fraicheur Cuir!
    In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava

    What about Cacharel Pour L'Homme?

    Long lasting citrus with woods and a little spice in the base notes.

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange
    A magnificent chamber meets his eye

    Have you tried Eau Savage Extreme? If you can find it, give it a try. Other the KC and YSL PH, I can advise you English Leather Wind Drift. You can still find it on eBay.

    Eau Sauvage is only good for about 2 to 3 hours on me.
    Eau de Rochas Homme is good for about 5 hours.
    YSL Homme is about as long lasting as Eau Sauvage is on me.
    Aqua di Portofino EDT (which is closer to YSL Homme than Eau Sauvage) lasts 7 or 8 hours, and the EDP even longer.

    Note well, these citruses are tricky. We've had big debates here in the past with people swearing black and blue that Eau Sauvage lasts all day on them, and couldn't believe my claim that it only lasted 2 or 3 hours.

    An old school citrus that smells a lot like ES and has pretty good longevity (and is quite reasonably priced to boot) is Capucci PH. It doesn't get much mention around here, but it is a good one. Armani PH, Eau de Rochas PH and Signoricci are all excellent citrus/herbal concoctions.

    Yeah Capucci Pour Homme.

    I was gonna say this but Capucci's longevity is only slightly better than ES's.

    I love Capucci. Its sparkles a bit more than ES does. Both are really amazing perfumes.
