    I also immediately thought of Black Aoud.
    But once you get locked into a serious perfume collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

    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.

    I know none of you didn't try this: Alixan By Sharmel 30-36 hours on my hand. on box writen "Made in France". I doubt. I searched very much, but i didn't find any house with Sharmel name.

    I had been to an Essenza di wills outlet recently and I tried a new cologne they had for display. It was known as "Mikkel".

    The stuff hung around FOREVER. Was 24+ hours on my skin, and I may actually buy it, but other things on the "to buy" list keep bumping up.

    Its so strange to me when I read that people find Paul Smith London long lasting and, of all things, potent. I had a totally different experience and many of the reviews I've read on this website and others declare it a subtle scent. I guess it just goes to show that different fragrances react differently on different people...oh well.

    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.

    Genuine oud. Maybe that doesn't count.

    I nearly vomited the first time I smelled it. The dry down took 2 or 4 hours before it became awesome. It lasted forever.

    Really? I don't see myself applying and reapplying a cologne once every 2 hours. Longevity is important if it's under 5 hours.
    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    Kouros lasts to the next day ( I had a shirt go through the wash and then the drier and still smell of it). B*Men lasts all day. Quorum also lasts 12 or more hours (my skin is really tough on fragrances).

    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.
