    Default Comme des Garcons fragrances with Longevity

    I have been sampling some Comme des Garcons fragrances and have found their longevity to be poor. My favorites thus far, Rhubarb and Dover Street Market last about an hour. Has this been your experience with CdG scents? Which CdG scents have you discovered that have good longevity?

    I have no longevity problems with any of the CDGs. But I find that the longevity issue is vastly overplayed here on the board. Example.....I get 12 hours from Artek/Standard and Vettiveru, and these frags have been noted here for low power output. Navegar, a notorious one for being accused of being a weak sister with longevity gave me 8 hours of output yesterday. Many noses here get fatigued IMO from constant sampling everyday and overspraying. Just my opinion, because my nose has become much stronger since I lowered my sampling and used a few less sprays on application.

    Kyoto
    Hinoki
    Vettiveru
    Artek/Standard
    Wonderwood
    Jaisalmer

    these all give me a full day of longevity.

    Good Luck!

    CdG Eau de Parfum goes for days!
    The only CdG fragrance I have longevity issues with is Wonderwood. But I'm still gonna buy a FB because it's awesome.

    Series 4: Cologne seem to be the only ones that didn't last on me, out of the ones I've tried.

    The strongest, longest lasting CdG's I've smelled are: Comme des Garcons Eau de Parfum, Series 3: Incense Avignon, Daphne Guinness, 2 and the more 'synthetic' ones (the two Odeurs, the Series 6: Synthetic scents).

    One reason why I don't own many of them even though I enjoy them. Calamus and 2 Man being examples. Strongest CdG scents that I know of are Sequoia & Avignon which already have been mentioned.

    Yes the original of course but my most favorite "2" is great as far as longevity.

    In general, the rest also do last on me but the output is not the same hours after the start. The scents obviously evolve and some become skin scents but they are there. To me that still counts. The evolution of the scent is part of the deal for me.

    Avignon, Zagorsk, Sequoia, Kyoto all seem to possess very good to outstanding longevity. Avignon is actually too high quality for the amount dispersed by the nozzle. A dip by a stem of a vial applicator is probably sufficient.

    CdG's attention to quality gets a lot of respect from me.

    Odeur 53 lasts for two days on me and longer on the clothes.

    Another vote for the original CDG. I have an empty bottle of it that I've left, unstoppered, lying on the top shelf of my coat closet. It seems to be working at discouraging the moths.
