PARFUM D'HABIT, VETIVER and EAU DES ILES by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
ANTIDOTE by Viktor & Rolf
ARPEGE POR HOMME by Lanvin
and many others.....
Just discovered a new one only a day or so after I posted my list (see first page of this thread). "What is this frag," you ask? ARABIE. (Not that I necessarily wanted to smell like a molasses covered kolache all day, mind you . . .)
Took two showers to finally get all the sugar off my wrists. I'm going to throw this generous decant into my next swap a little lagniappe, so some gourmand out there in Basenotesville should be exceedingly happy and olfactorily sated.
Btw, I just added Creed Aubépine-Acacia to my swap list -- check it out by clicking on the scent bottle icon to the right of my name, then clicking on the "swap list" tab.

I can only go with Aramis.
They recently dug up the skeleton of a man who died the day after its release in 1965. He was so excited about buying his bottle that he put on one spray and dropped dead from joy; the excavators commented on the skeleton's cologne.
Aramis reminds me of Christmas, and wearing a woolly jumper whilst having a beer in the snug at your local. Timeless.
Obsession - Calvin Klein is a stayer... good for the cold seasons too.
There is one thing that you should keep in mind, some fragrances last long, but after a few hours you don't smell it anymore. You think that it doesn't last but you are mistaken. Also they say that it depends from person to person. Some fragrances last long on some people, but not on another. I have doubts about this. I think that this is more of that your nose got used to the fragrance and doesn't sense it anymore. You should better give them a try before you buy. If you read some of the reviews on this site then you would see that some people complain that a fragrance did not last on them more than 2 hour and some would say that they had no problem with it and it did last for so many hours.
Among the ones you have asked then I would tell that Hugo and Ungaro last long, but there are sure other fragrances that last longer than these two.
I couldnt find a better stayer and projecxtor then hugo.
A smell that both projects always and lasts long is a very hard thing to find.
Despite the fact that I think many of my favorites disappear on me in just an hour or two, I can confirm:
All last pretty much all day, although the are quite faint by 4 PM
Kouros is quite potent and long lasting. If I apply it early at the morning, others will clearly notice it and compliment from one meter distance at 6PM (even I don't smell it myself).
PS/Paul Sebastian is even more potent and longer lasting than Kouros. It's kind of bright and ornamental almost feminine scent and I don't like it with regular clothes, but I use and like it with highly decorative chinese style silk shirt and hand painted jeans. It fits very well with decorated clothes.
Montale Royal Aoud is also very long lasting, at least 48 hours on me.
Van Gils is probably the strongest scent I have. It's the only scent I have to hold my breath while applying it and breath again after leaving the bathroom. Otherwise I get a very nasty taste on my mouth and throat. It still has a good sillage at the next morning (24 hours after application).
I don't recall seeing this on the list so far but Opium homme eau de parfum hangs on for dear life in a very good way.
Versace The Dreamer. Sample it CAREFULLY and wait at least 20 mins b4 u put ur nose near the card ha ha. I just bought it, its good ^ ^
MUST de Cartier lasts forever on me. Kouros, I have to admit, also has great longevity.
New York by Parfums de Nicolaï has very good longevity. There are others, but I wouldn't recommend many of them. Civet gives many fragrances their longevity and poorly produced frags end up smelling only of civet.
I have bought my last perfume
L'Eau de Issey.
Yes tit is not crushing noses in despair but smells very good and has a good longevity...But it is a popular smell...
When will I buy my next perfume,unknown bu sure I will
BTW:l'eau de issey seemed like a mixture of paco rabanne ultraviolet and DKNY be delicious for men to me.
Some good stinkers are...
Joop maybe three days?
Obsession (the original one) more than 12 hours
Antaeus more than 10h
Givenchy Gentleman about 10h
Hermes Bel Ami more than 8h
Fumerie Turque about 8h
Ungaro III about 8h
Xerius Rouge about 8h
Dolce e Gabbana PH about 8h
:::::: Visit My Blog: La gardenia nell'occhiello ::::::
Joop?Three days? lol
Xeryus Rouge I thought about,but patchouli makes me think twice...I can easily get pure patchouli essence here in Turkey and at a very good price..I dont need a perfume for it(given the fact that xeryus is a patchouli based scent lol)
Tom ford loves patchouli too.
D&G PH is really so longlasting ?
When i first tryed guerlain vetiver on my neck i was surprized that it is there after 12 hours and the next day i was blown away.
