    Default Anything like Mugler cologne that lasts longer?

    Mugler Cologne has to be my favorite out of my collection,
    I cant get enough of the fragrance - but the scent disappears so fast..
    Can anyone recommend something similar that would have better longevity ?

    I read that Creeds Original Vetiver is similar, but also that it doesn't last very long..

    Any help appreciated,
    Thanks!

    MC lasted only a few hours on me so I sold it - my OV though lasts all the way through the day and then some.

    OV is similar to Muglar Cologne, but a little softer and more complex.

    It isn't a longevity champ, but it does last longer than Cologne.

    Comme des Garcons Vettiveru. It lasts a bit longer than Mugler or Creed, but not by much.

    Have you tried switching up your application? Hair is real a scent-soak. On a very weak fragrance you could get away with spraying on your forearms and chest and hair, and it would last quite a while.

    Chanel Allure Homme Cologne Sport. This is in the clear bottle, not the grey. Good sillage and lasting power. Pricey, but man, it sure gets the compliments. Strange thing is, I probably have not worn it in two months.

    Creed OV lasted a longer time on me by far compared to Mugler, and I like them both. About 6-8 hours longer, the other difference is the price.

    Not sure how long you're wanting the scent to last, but OV is a pretty good alternative to Cologne when it comes to this. I dont time these things or anything like that, but it should last 5-7 hrs.
    I'm a fresh scent junkie and proud of it!

    Let's not forget Vetiver de Puig, which I now see is on amazon.com at reasonable prices. That stuff lasts and is quite good !

    Thanks for the suggestions guys,
    I'll probably end up buying the OV, it'll be my first step into the more pricey fragrances..

    Ill take a look out for the others suggested as well..

    Well, learn something new every day. A concentrate version of Mugler's Cologne???
    I thought that's what OV was...... :-) Is it exclusive to Nordstrom's?

    Default Re: Anything like Mugler cologne that lasts longer?

    no clue...but you really cannot miss the bottle....its a long slender version of the cologne bottle...try and imagine and obelisk...with the mugler's T cut out on one of the sides...

    http://shop.nordstrom.com/C/6016213/...origin=leftnav

    check this link...its right there...with the precious liquod. during the last nordstorm fragrance week it was bundled along wiht the mugler soap and the mugler alum stone

    you can also check out macys....they too have that

    I saw that bottle at their site as well as Mugler's site but there is no mention of if being a concentree at all. ??? It looks like the bottle is only a spray, not the bottle that can be converted to a splash or spray.

    no clue sir..you may be right....I was merely mentioning what the the nordstorm SA said ...I was sucking up to him for free samples



    call me shallow - i wont mind...but when you get 2 dozen samples for free- I think it behooves that I suck up to him

    Hmm I cant seem to find anything about a concentrate version,

    I have both the large 300ml splash bottle


    As well as this 100ml spray

    I think the SA said the same to me, meaning the "cologne" was more concentrated than the EdT. Although I'm not sure if they carry an EdT anyway.

    the second slender bottle ...thats the one i was told as the concentrate...after using 4 samples of it and comparing it with my bottle of mugler cologne...I concur with the SA...it seems to be lasting longer than the regular bottle juice

    my two cents on the longevity...also try the divatologists method here on basenotes- it works like a charm

    I forgot to mention

    Miracle La Aquatonic- Lancome...

    its comes very very very close to mugler cologne with amazing longevity

    A great choice.

    I don't find it as close in smell to Cologne as you do, but it is similar in feel and I wear it in the same circumstances as Muglar Cologne.

    Another in the same vein is Givenchy Green Energy.
