I'm so glad that you've found the solution to better longevity. Scented lotions really do make a difference in extending longevity. I remember trying Ambre Fetiche body lotion and have it last 24+ even after a shower! However anything lotiony that touches my body sans hands, and neck, breaks me out big time! Have you smelt Vol de Nuit in extrait? It really does smell like a richer version of Shaal Nur.
