    Default The Longest Lasting Men's Fragrance-Help requested

    Hi I am new to basenotes but I am a big parfume fan.


    I am about to make a buy of a perfume.


    The ones I have forund are these(men's perfumes)

    Calvin Klein-Be
    Pacu Rabanne-Eau
    Hugo Boss-Energise
    Escada-Magnetism
    Emanuel Ungaro-Ungaro 3
    Guerlain-Vetiver


    These are the ones I decided but not tested.

    I want not to irrite people but break through any nose.My scent should be wildly feelable after 8 hours of time.I want a very long lasting perfume and not irritating.

    The perfumes I liked are(I tell these so you could desribe me better):

    CKIN2U
    Paco Rabanne-XS(not black,normal XS)

    The perfumes I owe now are(apart form these)

    Davidoff-Cool Water
    Jean Paul-Le Male

    and some avon perfumes.


    Now could you advice for me from these perfurmes or you would recommend something totally different.I also welcome any info upon these perfumes.


    Best regards.Sorry to disturb.

    Thierry Mugler's A*men easily lasts for 12 hours. Try that one.

    Geir lasts a day and a half.
    M7 last suprisingly long, about 12 hours on me.
    Dior Homme does the same.

    Annick Goutal's Sables lasted on me for three days. And yes, I did shower during those three days.

    Hugo Energise lasts more than 10 hours on me with only 2 sprays.

    Ungaro III lasts about 6 hours.

    Magnetism--about 5-6 hours.

    P.S. Scents of Hugo Boss house always last a long time. Try Boss Bottled and Elements too, they are nice.
    Current Top 5

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. A*Men Pure Malt
    3. L'instant Extreme
    4. Nasomatto Duro
    5. CDG - Kyoto

    The marathon winners in my experience are:

    Knize Ten
    Ambre Sultan
    Black Aoud
    Miel de Bois
    Yatagan
    Tabac Blonde
    Scent Intense
    Timbuktu

    Check the Basenotes directory for reviews to see if any of these appeal to you. Good luck!

    Actually, if this fragrance lasts continuously for more than ten hours, you could be experiencing scent-priapism, and you should seek immediate medical attention.

    Thank you all guys You are great


    I did not expect to see many people trying to help me thank you all very very VERY MUCH.



    There is somebody that I would like to reply.

    One of you has said A'Men .That thing REALLY lastas,I know but I HATE that smell COMPLETELY


    What can I say,not to my tastes I dont like spices with sharp smells.


    Hugo boss is what I will certainly buy blind now,I know the smell off Hugo and Hugo 's smells are simlar to others making me a blind buy.


    What do you say about CK be and Vetiver?

    I know that vetiver has won the best fragrance award two times and a few times silver at basenotes.


    And also CKIN2U'tester lasts a lot more than the perfume?Anybody has an idea?It lastes 2 days on me at a tester whereas the perfume I bought lasts only a few hours.



    And will these perfumes make themselves felt in any environment?Are they strong?(ps.excuse me being an amateur because I am really an amateur )

    CK be is a fairly light, subtle scent. (I think it actually lasts pretty well, but it's not strong -- doesn't sound like what you're looking for.)

    Guerlain Vetiver has very good longevity and I enjoy it a great deal. However, its style is significantly different from the ones you identify as favorites. I'm not sure you would like it. I suggest you sample it, but I wouldn't recommend a blind buy.
    Spray it, don’t say it…

    Great news to me, and it would make me go back and try once more, even w'out showers in between :-). Can somebody please confirm this to a less sensitive nose? All I remember was some caramel. That was more than a year ago, probably two.

    a lot of the so called quality fragrances can be too overpowering for me...tm a-men ,ysl m7 and some other highly rated perfumes on this forum come to mind ,if you live in turkey they aren't that ideal for that climate either..i don't find ckin2u a better quality fragrance over ck be but maybe it's just my personal preference....if you really want a long lasting quality fragrance maybe you should check out "boucheron jaipur edp" which is quite expensive or "pi by givenchy" which is cheaper but still a quality "vanilla" fragrance....hope this helps...peace.

    Yeah, TdH always lasts more than 24 hours on me. So does Guerlain's Vetiver Eau Glacee and Heritage. Givenchy Gentleman also lasts around the 24 hour range as does Malle's Vétiver Extraordinaire. Almost all of my other scents are over the 10 hour mark.

    Of the ones you first listed I would recommend Guerlain Vetiver. It lasts well.

    L'eau D'Issey and Platinum Egoiste are long lasting "fresh" smells that I think might fit your requirements...

    Give em a try, they are easily available at most department stores i'd imagine

    No doubt, Angel Men lasts even when you might want it to go away.
    Incredible longevity.

    Guys another strong perfume I heard about:


    Xeryus Rouge.


    And also one of my other favorite is paco rabanne XS(which I own and regard well.)


    What do you say about xeryus rouge by givenchy?

  28. #28

    Default Re: The Longest Lasting Men's Fragrance-Help requested

    I have sampled Xeryus rouge a couple of times and from what I remeber it had average longevity. It is a very sharp sweet smell that reminds me of a lighter M7.

    Hmm many people write it has a superb longevity and a crushing smell that breaks through almost any nose-which is a good thing for me -
