    Thumbs up New Scent For School

    Hi guys,

    I'm in my last year of school and trying to decide on a new fragrance.

    In school, I rotate between

    Issey Miyake L'eau D'Issey,
    Perry Ellis 360 Red,
    and HM by Hanae Mori

    I love Bvlgari Black, but it doesn't last as long on me as L'eau D'issey, which is the main one I'd reach for in the morning.


    I'd love something similar to those three listed above and lasts a long time.. something around the 10 hour mark would be great. Money isn't the biggest of concerns but price still is a factor.

    Thanks a lot!

    Get:

    Visit for Men by Azzaro - One is initially treated to a wave of spice. An abundant nutmeg, with its soft and sweet, cinnamon-like character, couples with cardamon, with its slightly woody and anise-like facets, pink pepper, with its fruity and tart highlights, as well as ginger, with its peppery, lightly sweet, and faint lemony aspects. A menthol-like undercurrent from cedar leaves carries the stirring brew to the heart. Here, the Atlas cedar comes into its own, imparting its richly balsamic and camphoraceous accord, and vies with a lively incense, with its resinous, myrrh-like smokiness, for dominance. Guiacwood infuses its tea-rose woodiness, while a muted nutmeg is relegated to the background. Transitioning to the base, a skin-like musk intermingles with an ambergris, with its fleshy, slightly leathery and sweet woodiness. The bustling incense flitters about in the background. A pleasant drydown ensues. This masculine and well-done composition has very good projection, a 2-foot scent cloud, and very good longevity, about 10 hours; resultantly, spray sparingly. This appealing fragrance can be had rather inexpensively.

    &

    Issey Summer. It is more tolerable than the original, but you still get the same vibe.

    But... IMO you should go with something different from what you have.

    That's a good one, but I don't get anywhere near 10 hours from it...closer to 5 for me.

    I also agree with Goody...mix it up. Aim for something different. I'm an eighth grade teacher...have been wearing Obsession for Men to school lately. It's been lasting all day without over-powering. Great scent.

    Agree, but use the EDP if longevity is an issue.
