    Magie Noire; lasts overnight on me, got some on a silk robe about 2 weeks ago & it's still there.. *sniff*.. mmmmm

    Fracas, Carnal Flower & Beyond Love are also hot contenders. l too wish all of my frags could do this!

    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.
    Gucci Pour Homme II? Wow, just wow...the shortest lasting fragrance of all time? That's a 10 minutes fragrance for me. I just can't believe it, where did you get your bottle from?

    I agree with many of the ones mentioned in the thread, but MPG - Magnolia Pourpre is tenacious beyond reason.
    Many of the mentioned stubborn frags above undergo diminishing of the projection power, but This monster retains its prowess to an alarming degree. You might wanna scrub it with a knife. I love it, nonetheless.

    Yeah it blows me away. Especially since I usually need to have my nose against my skin to smell 90% of my fragrances after 2 hours. I hate that I dont get this with all my fragrances.

    Someone has mentioned this already, a lot of times the whole blended basenotes do not last, just one note. Everything else has burnt off, one has the tenacity of a Bull Terrier. So what you can smell the next day is probably not as pleasant and enjoyable!

    Gucci PH - the cedar from this is still going the following morning.

    Antaeus - that Leather note is easily 20 hours +

    Tiffany for Men & Boucheron pour Homme - the Oakmoss in the base of these 2 must be irradiated, it has a half-life approaching 30 hours.

    The only fragrance I have tried where the drydown smell is still unaltered next morning is Pi.

    Bond no. 9 - Broadway Nite. It was a nightmare. I did not care about it much to begin with and then it resisted all attempts for washing it off. I was still getting whiffs of it from my wrist after two weeks - no kidding!!! (And I do shower and change my clothes every day - just to eliminate a hypothesis ).

    I don't dare to test any more Bond no. 9 scents.

    Two weeks? I'm pretty sure you were getting paranoid. And don't worry about Bond no. 9s, they don't last that long. But I'm sure it's a brand you can live without

    Same here. I got whiffs of this 48 hours later (no joke).

    Also pluses to Paul Smith London (got a bit of that under my fingernails while decanting and could catch it 3 days later) though on skin probably over the 16-20 hour mark or more.

    Tauer's stuff, especially LDDM has gone well over 24 hours on my skin.

    In addition I've caught whiffs of Aventus probably close to 20 or so hours after applying (though that one's a bit of a dark horse in this category).

    And last but not least I'll include a heartfelt nod to Black Aoud. High projection, sillage and longevity on all accounts.

    If youre looking for longevity, stay away from Bvlgari Aqva. I've heard its longevity and sillage is good, but at 2 sprays to the neck, it barely lasted an hour, and even right when sprayed my girlfriend couldn't smell it unless her nose was within 3 inches of my neck. I liked the scent, but I was very dissapointed. The scent lasted a long time on my shirt however...

    +1 Amoauge Jubilation XXV - and it is delicious
    +1 Real Oud oil - as stated, sometimes you have to wait some hours for the drydown to progress enough to leave the house - now this can be for the horrible ones as much as for the awesome ones.

    I've discovered many longevity kings:
    YSL - Kouros for me is the longest lasting from this house (for men)
    - Opium FOR WOMEN EdP (EDT is good too) has shocking longevity, the EdP may even last longer then Kouros
    - M7 has excellent longevity, I don't think you'll have problems with this one
    - Even Rive Gauche has respectable longevity for me
    In conclusion... YSL doesn't make faint scents, all that I've tried from this house had great longevity.

    Cristian Dior - Poison (Vintage Poison is a longevity bomb), The poison elixirs, Pure perfums for all their fragrances, Fahrenheit & Fahrenheit Absolute, Dior Homme Intense... these are the ones that last very long on me

    Chanel - Anteus is the most persistent, but Egoiste, No. 5 and No. 19 also have fantastic longevity

    Givenchy - Gentleman is really strong and tenacious, and so are Pi and Amarige

    Cartier - I've only tried Santos but it blew me away. One of my faves definitely.

    Less refined fragrances that have incredible longevity: Le Male, Angel and A* Men, JOOP! Homme, The Dreamer etc.
    Most of the fragrances that I've tried have good and excellent longevity, even if I didn't like all of them.

    I used to spray about five sprays and this would last 12-15hrs, until I let a friend try some and experienced the massive vapour trail I had been subjecting others to. I now use 3 sprays and that lasts all day (10-12hrs). People will comment on it (nice comments) easily 6-8hrs after application.

    -Clive Christian X for Men. Lasts for days on clothing and lasts a very decent time on skin. Yep, I know it's pretty much hated around here, but it does last a looong time, and if you like X, chances are you'll enjoy the whole process.
    -Amber Absolute and Bois Marocain by Tom Ford are both great for longevity for me.
    -A*Men. By god, I think I like it and then I try to wash it off and no. It WON'T GO. I can't vouch for how it smells after a while, because by the time I'm trying to wash it off, I've already gotten sick of it so any remaining scent will pretty much smell awful.

I got 24 hours out of Vermiel one time. Suprisingly I got 24 hours out of Dior Homme even though it is a weak scent IMO.
