I believe that all perfumes are designed "on spec" for a price point - so if the spec does not specifically say, "Lasts all day on even dry skin chemistry" then the perfumer is not obliged to do that, do they?
Maybe the brief says, "Fleeting smell of the night in a Grasse valley." I don't know about you but that one I wouldn't expect to last more than 3-4 hours max even in EDP strength.
So for people who think a lot of modern perfumes do not last as long as they'd like - it's very simple. Vote with your dollar and do not buy short-lasting perfumes then - at whatever price point. Either that or start your own niche company called "The Tenacious Perfume Company" and brew up your own EDPs at 25% perfume oil concentration.
I had once Joop Homme and I can very well remember its having a decent longevity, but the scent itself is nowhere near. Still I haven't had the opportunity to try Goutal, I will try my best.
But in the last 5 weeks I had the privilage to try five Amouages, four Nasomattos, lots of L'Artisans, all of Clive Christians, several Miller Harris' - a really great period, thank you basenotes
