Eau Sauvage, Habit Rouge EDC (vintage), CK Be, Bulgari Pour Homme maybe, but especially Eau D'Orange Verte.
What fragrances do you have to shower yourself with to enjoy the scent all day?
I had to wear literally 12 sprays of Paul Smith London to get it to last from 9am - 3pm. I've never worn more than 6-7 sprays of anything so this was outside of my comfort zone. Even after 12 sprays, it was only as loud as if I'd put on 2 sprays of Rive Gauche to my neck and one to the wrist. Its a bit of a disappointment to say the least.
Nautica Sunset Voyage.
someone please stop me from buying more cologne.
top five: 1) Creed Vintage Tabarome 2) Creed Windsor 2) Serge Lutens Chergui 3) Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur 5) MFK Lumiére Noire Pour Homme
Chanels two Pour Monsieurs.
Snarky is as snarky does.
Kenzo Vintage. I swear to god I can spray 100 sprays on myself and still not really smell anything
Perry Ellis 360 Black. 16 sprays ( !)....but, honestly, the sprayer really doesn't "mist". It kinda squirts out the juice. I think only half the usual amount comes out of this sprayer. Still, 16 sprays really puts me out of my comfort zone. The fragrance also has poor projection/longevity . Never go fragrance shopping in a mall to "cheer yourself up". Never.
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Midnight in Paris EDP, Aramis New West, Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.
Please PM me !
12 Sprays of Paul Smith London? My god. That is a one or at max two spray scent. Potent stuff.
Me? None. Absolutely not a single scent do I need to bathe in. At most bathing in a scent will lead to it being extremely overpowering and off-putting for the first hour, and also just induces olfactory fatigue more quickly.
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml

Creed's Neroli Sauvage

But i suppose these were meant to be light and brief experiences of scent.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....

Baie de Genievre.
If 12 sprays is considered "bathing," then I do that with all my fragrances (except A*Men).
I know this sounds a bit cliché, but my skin is a fragrance-killer. People have to put their nose right on my skin to smell it, otherwise they won't notice it.
The only one that I go more than 12 sprays is Sean John I Am King. I've had to go about 30 sprays with it.
Eau D'Orange Verte will not even stick if you apply 60 sprays to clothing.
It is still gone in 2 hours, only leaving a hint of oakmoss.
Yet I still do this regularly. LOL
There's other scents which I loved almost as much as EDOV, that did the same thing...wouldn't stick no matter how insane the application,
Penhaligon's West Indian Limes
Trumper's West Indian Limes
Guerlain's Imperiale edc
Creed Citrus Biggarade
Malle Biggarade (immeasurably better than his dreadful concentree)
Arancia Di Capri
they wouldn't stick but I didn't buy them as EDOV is just better / more contemporary (quite a feat for 1979).
Other scent I put 18 or more sprays of, in order for them to last and project:
Kilian Prelude to Love
Hermes Concentre D'Orange Verte
Truefitt&Hill West Indian Limes
Creed Millesime Imperial
Creed Selection Verte
Roger & Gallet JMF Extra Vieille
Bombay Sapphire Infusion
Sisley Eau De Campagne
Alot of my wardrobe is unfortuneatly like this, but I cannot control my taste, nor do i want to.

Re: EDOV, if TdH is sooo loaded with Iso-E, does anyone know if it would work to mix those two, mostly EDOV, but a bit of TdH and that might extend the EDOV's longevity?
I think I'm going to try this and let you guys know if it works.

Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
None - But I don't usually like/buy "weak" fragrances.

I get the same dismal longevity with the vintage Shalimar EDC.
Bulgari Aqva and Mugler Cologne. Bulgari Aqva lasts quite a while but nobody can sense it unless I spray quite a bit.
That and Fashion Avenue by Bond No.9. I know it's a women's scent but I LOVE how this smells.
Female butting in .....
Jo Malone Honeysuckle and Jasmine. This one you absolutely have to bathe in for any longevity .
Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
