    Default Recommend me 3 strong long lasting designer scents.

    Im looking to purchase 3 colognes. I have basic aquatics right now so im looking to get 3 strong long lasting scents that last 10-16 hours that can be purchased at most stores.

    No one can recommend what will last this long on your skin as chemistry is one of the variables in the equation. Instead, I recommend you go to a department store nearest you and obtain samples. What lasts one, may not last on you.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    - Egoiste Platinum by Chanel

    - Fahrenheit Absolute by Christian Dior

    - Fuel For Life by Diesel

    - A*Men (T.Mugler) and Le Male (Jean Paul Gaultier)................... for example

    But more important is that the evidence in your skin!!

    Excellent advice. For example, Armani Attitude is one that lasts all day on me yet most people here complain about it's longevity. I get all day out of it with great sillage also. Same with Armani Code. Try them out yourself as "designer" scents are easy to find in most department stores where they let you spray at will with testers (usually).

    As for my skin, I get the best designer longevity from: Armani Attitude, Burberry Brit, and L'Occitane Eav des Bavx (not really a designer but in the same category).

    I will have to agree on Joop and Obsession, from personal experience. Joop just wasn't my preference scent-wise.
    Now Obsession (for men I presume, I do use both the men's and women's) I really enjoy. It is a traditional Amber powerhouse. I keep thinking of it as a nemesis to aquatic/fresh scents. Obsession is a little less casual. But you could happen to be just like me - one who enjoys the aquatics (though a little less often nowadays) and traditional powerhouses, well, good aquatics and good powerhouses of course.

    I agree!
    A couple of people wrote Burberry London as long lasting.
    Not so sure about that... I read multiple times about the poor longevity on Burberry London.
    I have a bottle myself and it doesn't last at all on me...

    Long lasting fragrances on me :
    M7
    Chanel Egoiste Platinum
    Bois du Portugal
    Giorgio Beverly Hills

    Do sample first...

    212 for Men, Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme, and Rochas Man, but as one of the posts above this one states. A lot of fragrances are temperamental on various skin types and people. So longevity (and even scent development) varies from one person to another.

    Kouros, I'm pretty sure it'll last very long on most people.

    I'm a little puzzled the sole criteria is "long lasting," but in my experience:

    YSL Rive Gauche
    A*Men
    YSL Kouros

    I think at this point the singular definition of "longevity" needs to be established. To some it means the length of time it takes to continue appreciating sillage. To some, the length of time they can smell a smidgen of the scent if they bury their noses in their test-spots. Some gauge it from a half-spray, some with two sprays. Some on skin, some on paper. These will all yield different results even to the same nose. Regardless, there are some long-lasting frags, and that is what the OP wants to know.

    A lot of good choices have been mentioned, but more are:

    Polo - Green and Modern Reserve
    Boucheron Jaipur and pour Homme (especially the EDPs)
    Herrera for Men
    Salvador Dali pour Homme
    ointments and perfume delight the heart....
