    Default A longer lasting CK Be?

    I love the smell of CK Be, but its longevity is so crappy. Does anyone know of a fragrance that is close to CK Be but has decent longevity?

    Hmmm, Burberry Touch is somewhat similar to me. Alternatively you could buy a dupe oil of CK Be, this lasts much longer. It's not exactly a very complex frag so it's not so hard to copy. There are several good dupes on the market.

    I once mistook the Mugler cologne's drydown for Ck Be's. If you sweat a lot wearing Mugler Cologne, the drydown would turn out similar to CK Be's, if no sweat, they are in different leagues.

    I think the longevity of CK Be isn't bad at all. My brother used 3 sprays and I still got a whiff of it from him after 6 hours.

    Well, Ck Be lasts a lot on me. It is a shame because a very awesome scent ends up being anoying. Gendarme shares some similarities with it and I think it lasts long too.

    That's weird; I've always found the longevity to be poor.

    I will check out Burberry Touch. Thanks for the help everyone.

    I don't see any similarity between Touch and cK BE. I would recommend you trying "Reporter" by casini and "Chrome" by Azzaro.

    such a lovely scent, ain it! it's a kind which dies on the wearer pretty soon..occasional whiffs maybe...but, it lingers on pretty well..as Kiatbkk mentioned...probably the people around get much more of it.. a susbstitute, hmmmmmm, i havent come across any that makes me feel that way... you may still wanna give Helmut Lang Edc (for men) a try...it's musk heavy like Be...i think you will appreciate it.

    edit: Burberry Touch maybe worth a shot. it;s powdery like Be (more intense) and has a note of violet, which may remind you of Be..although, it can't replace Be.

    I find the longevity is pretty good considering that there isn't meant to be any real "depth" to the fragrance. There only seems to be a top note then a middle note then its gone but it does seem to stay on clothes quite a bit.

    I 100% agree with this. I can wear ck be or at least I used to and I dont think touch has any similarity. Throw the price into the equation (ck be is usually cheaper but not always) then I'd pop for ck be any day. There isn't really anything else like it and it can be a bit fleeting. However for the price, buy a huge bottle of it and just re apply as and when you like.

    My 2 cents
