    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. I tried to wash it off two times and couldn't. It's like the ink packs they put in money bags--you can't was the stuff off. And I wanted to, believe me. Yuck!

    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.

    +1 Black Aoud & Red Aoud. Definitely live up to all the longevity claims. In fact, a nice handful of Montales last a very good while on my skin.

    Why do people care so much about longevity. It's the least important aspect of a cologne for me.

    The longevity god? Well then, consider me atheist.

    If you want something that really lasts FOREVER, try Les Nez's L'Antimatiere. Other heavy hitters are Fleur Du Male, Jubilation XXV, and M7.

    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

    I'll also agree with the others that Polo is incredibly long lasting. I've gotten easily 24 hours out of one application of Polo.
