    Default The longevity god

    which fragrance has a nearly-disgusting amount of longevity? everything ive own/tried lasts 12 hours tops (Givenchy's Pi stayed on over night, first one to do that for me). A*Men is bogus to me (all the youtube reviewers lied!), lasts 8 hours on a good day, Le Male is spotty at best for me (4-10 hours), JOOP! Homme made me nauseous instantly so i never got around to testing longevity (in fact im scared of trying it again!). SIDENOTE: EDCs last bizarrely long on me. Hollister SoCal and Chanel Allure Homme Sport both last atleast 10 hours on me.

    Ive heard Bijan is a beast, Quorum...im not even looking for a good fragrance, im just wondering if there is a fragrance that can last EXTREMELY long

    A*MEN sometimes lasts 8 hours, sometimes 20, depends mostly on the temperature of your body and the weather.

    I got a 20 hours + from A Taste of Heaven by Kilian , 14+ Bleecker Street by Bond no.9 , 12+ Creed Royal Delight

    Looking for cheapies that have 16 - 24 hour longevity? Try these:

    PS by Paul Sebastian
    Arpege Pour Homme (not a powerhouse, but lasts at least 18 hours on me)
    Giorgio For Men
    Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme


    Looking for expensive niche? Mazzolari Lui is vicious patchouli and animal juice that lasts 24 hours on my skin.

    There are a few. For me, and i have scent sucking skin, the most tenacious I've ever run into in my life is Malle's Noir Epices. Lasted till the morning after AND through the shower. It was feint, but still there.

    I wish I liked it more. It's a nice scent, but on me it wears like a pungent, spicy soap.

    NeuroticC: You post a fair amount about longevity. I share your pain, but some scents you really like you may just have to reapply. Looking at your wardrobe, you like a lot of the modern scents and my issue with many of those is they have no legs.

    Some of the powerhouse frags like Shamu referenced above may suit you. Look into some of the power frags- most are very affordable and they're usually pretty potent. There is a reason they're called powerhouses.

    Sample Noir Epices. See if it works for you. It's neither mature, nor youthful. Read the reviews. It's billed as unisex, but it leans way more masculine IMO. My gut tells me if this lasts this long on me, it may last for days on others. I also get a slight sense from your posts that you want something that projects pretty strong and loud long after applied. This does that too.

    Maybe it just works perfectly with my skin chemistry or some such, but it's nuclear on me. Def the strongest shyt in my wardrobe and it's up against some potent juice.

    Polo, green bottle. I have a "vintage" bottle that lasted me last weekend from a shower in the morning, through to the next day while camping. My tent smelled like it for the weekend because it stayed on me and my first shirt.

    I have scent-sucking skin too, but even I don't get that kind of action from Noir Epices (which is a MAJOR LOVE of mine). But yeah, it lasts through the day. If something lasts 8 hours on me, I'm happy. I'm sick of 2-3 hour wimp-outs!

    Polo, as suggested, is probably a good one. I'd also vote for Aramis Tuscany. I still have probably 50ml left of a 15-year-old bottle and it will last me the rest of my life considering I wear it once a year at most.

    YSL Kouros? And I'd probably pick Red Aoud over Black Aoud, though both are strong -- Red knocks me the hell out, and if you get a little on clothing, it's all over. Again, my 20ml canister will last two lifetimes.

    Only from Ultraviolet I get 16+. I can smell it the second day. And from the rest Angel for Men 6 hours and a moderate sillage.
    Therefore the ones that have longevity on my skin are Ultraviolet 16+ and A*Men with a maximum of 6 hrs.

    I guess it depends on the type of skin, of course, and yet I think the monster longevity awards to me go to:
    - APOM Pour Homme Francis Kurkdjian: 24 hours plus, and if you drop a little on your jacket, you will find it there after two days. Not a negative comment at all: I think its neroli note is pure beauty;
    - Obsession for Men Calvin Klein: neverending amber
    - Tom Ford for Men (the first one): neverending patchuli

    As far as ones not mentioned; every time I wear Blue Sugar, I get about 10 hours. It's one of the sweetest gourmand openings I've ever experienced. I also get 8-12 hours with Zirh Ikon, but it is temperamental, some days I only get 4-6.

    Also (though I have trouble wearing this) Giorgio Beverly Hills. Longevity can be up to 12 hours easily, not to mention it's one of the biggest projection/sillage monsters ever made,

    Byredo Pulp - Not only does this last, it's a contaminant. It literally infects EVERYTHING. If I bring out the sample and merely place it on my table without opening it, my whole room is filled.. incredible!!

    Black Orchid Tom Ford - Sprayed my neck and it lasted over 24 hours there.. but more impressively was my seatbelt, on which it lasted over a month.

    Annick Goutal's Sables - Lasts too long, washing machine struggles to get this stuff off

    Opium EDP - Thick, in your face, strong, sweet, just damn persistent. Won't go away.

    M7 - Clings on and on. So while it gets very faint, it will just stay. Stubborn.

    Fleur Du Male - Formula must contain claws. Really hangs on!

    Gaultier 2 - Thick, sweet but most of all STICKY. Stays stays stays.

    Antaeus - Nauseatingly persistent. I wash it off at times. That strong thick slightly sweet leather can get too much.

    Paul Smith London - Strange hazy smoky effect in its sillage so it appears weak/moderate but it's actually VERY POTENT. I mean POTENT. This stuff is so concentrated. It outlasts a lot of EDP's. It pushes 24 hours on my skin without breaking a sweat and stays on clothes for weeks on end. One of the only scents I got tired of and made me feel slightly nauseated.

    Vetiver Guerlain - Lasts very long on me. On a good day I can gett 18-24 hours.. on a regular day.. 10-12 will do just fine.

    There's a lot more, but I'll stop here.

    Its so strange to me when I read that people find Paul Smith London long lasting and, of all things, potent.

    Maybe they wanted say Chanel ?

    The Lutens have specific longevity, depending the skin. But some of them (on me) disappear the night and the morning i can sniff them again ! Like if my skin absorbing the fragrance re-release it after.

    Apparently I'm one of the skin types that kill fragrance fast, so it's always a huge suprise to me when I find I can detect a scent on myself the next day let alone having to jam my nose into my skin to smell anything after 5 or 6 hours.

    That being said, not so shocking is Le Male. If I spray this on my chest today and go for a walk tomorrow morning it fires back up.

    The suprising one for me is Gucci PH II. The day after applying I can get out of bed and move my arm past my face, not even close, just the act of putting on a shirt, and I catch it still. At that point it's old and faded but I dont have to look for it, it's still there.

    Wish I had that problem with all my scents.
