I need some information from all of you. Which perfume you think has the long lasting fragrance? please tell me names with the time period their fragrance may last.
thanks in advance.
Poison, Esprit de Parfum...lasts for-ev-er.
Hints of Narciso Rodriguez for Her (even the EDT) can be smelled 2 days on fabric after I wash my clothes.
Chanel's Coco: Damn!
Q: How do you make a feminine fragrance masculine?
A: Add 'Pour Homme' to the bottle
- Pierre Bourdon
Clinique Wrappings lasted 17 hours on me.
thanks all. i already own poison and indeed it has great smell but now i am going to try other too
But seriously. Why do you want to know this?
I've found that arabian perfume oils can last for days, even with just a drop. Diesel's Fuel For life also lasts too long, and without changing at all - booring!

Paloma Picaso and Youth Dew both are very longlasting. Eau de Soir too.....
Une rose chyprťe Tauer
A, quales ego mane rosas procedere vidi!
Nascebantur adhuc neque erat par omnibus aetas.
The longest-lasting in my experience is:
Knowing -- it never goes away. I have put on scarves, which have been tucked away a YEAR, and they still smell of Knowing.
1st runner up:
The Party in Manhattan -- lasts for days.
Honorable mention to Amouage Dia PdN Odalisque.

I would say Trussardi Action and Kenzo Jungle!!
Try Clinique Aromatics Elixir. Recently I sprayed some on my hair, at noon to be precise - stayed out all day, took a shower in the evening, went to bed, and could still smell the perfume on my hair the next evening!
Vivienne Westwood Boudoir lasts AGES on skin. I've applied it in mid-afternoon and smelled it the next day, and its alleged honey/pussy qualities really come to the fore.
Both Wrappings and Aromatics Elixir are multiple-day commitments. I love both of them but know that if I decide to wear them it will be at least two days before I am entirely free of them.
Youth Dew Amber Nude sticks around significantly longer than regular Youth Dew.
Cacharel Eden is merciless on clothing. One washing will not get rid of it. It's strange because on application it doesn't seem like THAT loud of a scent...but it goes on and on and on and on....
Montale Black Aoud - two drops are enough!
The most powerful scent I own.
Also very strong( and I'm loving this!):
Azzurťe by Estee Lauder
First by Van Cleef&Arpels
and one of the worst scents ever (I'm hating the stuff!!!): Giorgio by Giorgio Beverly Hills. So over-powering...and a headache guaranteed!
Carnal Flower -- about 36 hours!
Soir de Lune by Sisley is extremely long-lasting, too.
This week, 'Chanel Cuir de Russie: Skin Scent' at http://thescentimentalist.blogspot.com/
Eau de Soir also by Sisley - very long lasting. 2 sprays will last all day on my scent eating skin.
+1 Aromatics Elixir.
+1 for Carnal Flower- very good longevity. Equivalent to extrait. When I decanted it, it was very oily in texture. This is wonderful stuff and the price is good for such quality .
Krigler Pleasure Gardenia - very much like Giorgio of Beverly Hills and cannot be washed off.
Montales in general- very good tenacity .
La Prairie Silver Rain- one big spray lasted an entire plane journey from London back to LA and saved me from asphyxiation due to my neighbour's BO. If I had not been able to sniff Silver Rain I would have died during the flight. Forever grateful for its nuclear longevity.

Petty small minded people have no place in my life.
eden by cacharel lasts for ages, no doubt about it.
Rumba by Balenciaga. Three days' worth from one application. And it gets better each day.
Reformulation without information is fraud. Call the police.
What an odd way to phrase the question.
It has been my experience that some fragrances last longer than others on me but that is not necessarily the case with the same fragrance on someone else. An individual becomes asnomic to a scent they themselves wear but others can still smell it quite clearly. The dryness of ones skin also effects longevity of scent, as does humidity and temperature.
In other words, it's subjective...to a point.

Here's my list:
Estee Lauder's Beautiful - Vintage - absolutely indelible. (Sophia Grojsman's creations all-up were heavy hitters).
Christian Dior's Hypnotic Poison - one of the best of the 'new' for sillage and longevity. Old School. There till you wash it off.
Dana's Tabu - I'm not sure if the current formulation is strong but the one I wore in the late 70's early 80's was a monster.
Yves Saint Laurent's Opium - Vintage only but the EdT is all you need for at least 24 hours worth.
Guerlain's L'Heure Bleue - Surprised no one has mentioned this. Lasts for days but does wash off ... eventually. xD
Special Mention to Bvlgari's Jasmin Noir - the sillage is poor but the longevity is stellar (48 hours+).
+1 to Chanel's Coco - if I don't wash the shirt or coat after wearing it, it can scent my wardrobe for a week. Also Vintage.
+1 to Kenzo's Jungle L'Elephant - Phew! All of the above plus cardamon! Lol be prepared to smell it everywhere for days.
+1 to Estee Lauder's Knowing - I don't like this and being able to smell it for days is not a good thing for me but it fits your bill!
I'm sure Thierry Mugler's Alien and Angel fit the bill too but I don't enjoy either so I can't tell you how long they last. I'm sure others can.
If you are to try any of the above, test with no more than one spray - in fact, half a spray will do you!
Please note that my nose is sensitive and as RHM says this is all personal opinion, experience and body chemistry. All of the above lasts forever on me but may not on you. You have a few to test though! Happy sniffing!.
