    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.

    Geir lasts a day and a half.
    M7 last suprisingly long, about 12 hours on me.

    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.

    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 )

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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

    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.

    Really?? It's so weird how fragrances react differently, on me I would say it lasts the least ammount of time compared with all my other frags which is annoying because I LOVE it. How many sparys do you use? I put 2 on my neck, 1 on my shirt and 1 on my wrist.

    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.

    Hocam selamlar,

    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.

    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).

    New York by Parfums de Nicolaď 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.
