I can still smell a trace amount of J.V. in the morning if I do a spray on my hand before jumping into bed. Its probably my favorite scent that I've discovered. On my neck, it easily has above average longevity for me. 5 hours later, and I can still get a nice whiff of it if I puff my shirt. That is to say, however, That is does not have a huge projection off my skin. But I like that.
