Thread: strong scents

  1. #1

    Default strong scents

    When reading about how long a scent lasts, often times people mention that it depends on the person and their skin. I have found that there are a few scents out there that seem to last forever on just about everybody. For example, drakkar noir. I really enjoy the power of this fragrance on occasion. I'd like to try out some other strong scents. Can you recommend any?

    Among masculines, I've found that Michael for Men by Kors lasts very long, into the next day. However, a lot of people seem to get olfactory fatigue from the top notes of this one (as I did as a newbie). If chocolate and vanilla are your thing, Amour de Cacao lasts a very long time.

    Drakkar Noir does not last on my skin. I can smell it for about the first 1/2 hour and then it will fade to a skin scent and by eight hours it is gone from my skin and clothes. I have even asked others it they detected it on me and they have replied No!

    So you can't say scent are designed to last on all skin types.....

    I will second Kouros and Guerlain Vetiver, and perhaps add Rive Gauche, Escentric 01, and Lapidus pour homme.
