    Default A cologne with great sillage?

    Does anyone know of any colognes with great sillage that will keep that going for say 10 hours...? And that would be appropriate for school use? My problem is most of my colognes die down in 3 hours to no sillage and i have to like touch my skin to smell it...so any suggestions?

    In my opinion it is. I'll be wearing BK to college this winter.

    Green Irish Tweed might be worth checking out as well.

    What are you using, depending on the frag, the olfactory bulb of your brain, the section that processes smells essentially, could just be blocking out what it is exposed to for a long period of time. People can smell Azzaro Chrome on me long after I cease to be able to without getting real close to my skin.

    Gaultier - Le Male. This stuff lasts forever.

    It's been years since I wore it, so I'm not sure how I would feel about it today though...

    Givenchy Blue Label, Guerlain L'Instant, Burberry London, Hermes Terre d'Hermes, last all day on me, and can be found fairly inexpensivly.

    Blue Label is a citrusy aquatic that's got a nice woody dry down

    L'Instant is a gourmand but doesn't get too sweet

    London is boozy and woody with port wine, tobacco

    Terre d'Hermes opens citrusy then dries down to vetiver and woods. It has a mineral accord that seems somewhat controversial, but for me it's great

    The scent grows richer, he knows he must be near
    He finds a long passageway lit by chandelier
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange

    Gaultier's Fleur de Male has wonderful strength and sillage and IMO is a much more beautiful fragrance than Le Male.

    We might have a Joop! Homme man among us!

    Unfortunately, you might not like it (although it certainly has fans) but it is king, emperor, generalissimo, and president of both longevity and sillage.

    I'd say Allure Homme edition Blanche. You'll smell much classier than everyone else in school. Steer clear if you don't like lemons though...
    And Joop! Homme is not appropriate for high-school, if I had to sit next to someone wearing more than 1 spray of this for a few hours I'd want to strangle them.

    Maybe if you're in school you might not want something so strong? Close quarters and all? Just a thought.

    Keep in mind too that sometimes you won't be able to smell you after a few hours, but others might!

    I'd say John Varvatos, Has such and awesome dry down, And is very Inexpensive and last all damm day! Much better that most of my niche fragrances.

    Bogart Pour Homme. Although not a favourite of mine, this frag's sillage and longevity is outstanding. 5 sprays to neck and chest and 12 hours later my mum said i had too much cologne on. BPH is cheap too.

    Yeah, same here.

    Friends say they can smell my cologne long after I thought it had disappeared.

    Ditto. Unbelievably powerful frag.

    I'd add Knize 10 also.

    Knize 10? For someone to wear to school? I don't know about that man. I recommend Versace Pour Homme. Fresh, long lasting and has aquatic undertones. Try Allure Homme Sport too!

    Original Jules by Dior has monster sillage on me.....especially in warm weather or conditions.

    I also get it from Opium EDP and Macassar as well.

    Versace L' Homme is really nice, inexpensive, and long lasting. Also would second the Givenchy Blue Label. Very nice and great longevity.
