    I suppose today,
    Chergui has proved itself
    worthy of this thread .

    I can ditto Obsession and Ysatis. Amarige is a little less so imo, but I apply it cautiously. Funny thing-- I love Amarige and thought I'd feel the same about Red Door because they share many fragrance notes, but Red Door is a scrubber on me. And boy does it require a good scrubbing to get rid of! I think this is typical of the mid 80s/early 90s fragrances, many of which are named repeatedly in this thread. We did everything big back then-- hair, shoulder pads, Laura Biagiotti sunglasses to shield us from the bright colors of spandex, blue eyeshadow and pink lipstick. Our perfumes needed to keep up with all that.

    I also wanted to put in a mention for Paloma Picasso Mon Parfum. My bottle is more than ten years old, and due to its strong sillage I only wear it on very cold evenings. Between living in Florida and California, I haven't seen too many of these. I always have to put it on at least 30 minutes before leaving the house, not only because I don't want to frag-attack anyone I'm with, but also because I often get stomach cramps before it settles down. Still, the drydown makes me feel luxuriously enveloped so I endure it. To paraphrase Arnold Bennett: "It's magnificent. It's like champagne or high heels, and one must be prepared to suffer for it."

    Thumbs up Re: Top 10 strongest/most powerful perfumes ever?

    My wife & I share a bottle of Habanita de Molinard. Amazing stuff with powerful sillage & longevity. I sprayed some on a jacket (or, rather, wafted the jacket through a mist of the fragrance) and the scent is still there loud and clear--several days later!

    Yep, Paloma Picasso for me too.

    Feminite du Bois lasts until the next day on me. Joy, if I'm lucky, gives me a little hug in the morning before vanishing.

    Ahhhhhh, some stuff on me, just last and last and lasts.


    I was wearing my clothes when I sprayed on some Blue Amber onto my wrists, 3 days later, I can still smell it off the clothes, and could smell it on my wrists for approx. 2 days Ah, and the fantastical Bois D'Argent, I put it on last night at 6pm, it's 8.47am, I could smell it uptill 20 minutes ago, then I had a shower :P! It's a long lasting cologne!

    I really don't know what's with the lasting power of Patou fragrances. They are really beautiful and refined but honestly, they do not last at all and do not have that "in your face" strength; but then again, maybe they are purposely crafted to act that way.

    I should add A La Nuit to my list. I sprayed a wee bit on this morning, and it's been going strong for 13 hours now. Fantastic.
