    Lightbulb Women's Fragrance with the Best Longevity & Sillage?

    Im looking to buy a frag for my Girlfriend.. it must have the best longevity & Sillage because we live in a very hot country & most of these frags lasts only few hours & it vanishes. Also we sweat a lot, I need something that will last the whole day in very hot weather & have the best Sillage/Projection. thanx

    damnit! its 31'C today

    Angel by Thierry Mugler has tremendous sillage but it may not be suitable for very hot climes, as it
    is quite cloying if over-applied.
    I find Santa Maria Novella's Melograno will cut through most atmospheres
    and it lasts quite well. Also Dior's Hypnotic Poison lasts well and is big on sillage.
    The Estee Lauder's are reknowned for longevity and sillkage too. Why not try some of those.
    A woman without perfume is like a flower without a scent.

    yeah heard a lot abt Angel & my bottle is on the way from ebay, y over apply? will few sprays not last long enough? do u have to keep re applying?. Oh forget abt Hypnotic poison... it gives me a headache why the hell did Dior make such a disgusting smell.

    Delrae Bois de Paradis would fit the bill-- I find it overwhelming in the summer, myself.

    +1 for the Estee Lauder. Very persistent - things like Private Collection or Azuree will cut through the heat and last.

    If you have access to Arabian perfumes, Swiss Arabian Mukhallat Malaki (an oil) is also extremely persistent (and cheap)

    Florida is hot, I have fragrance-eating skin and the best lasting perfume of my small collection is Jailia Yesterday I applied at 5am or so, re-applied around 9, worked all day (in air conditioning) waited for bus outside in the hot, worked out and sweated, and it was still there at 6pm, which is very good performance for me.

    Sisley's Eau de Soir- lasts and lasts and lasts even in hot and humid weather and that's two sprays.

    Any of the Chanels are pretty big on sillage and last on the skin for hours.

    Angel and Flowerbomb but as said very cloying. Aldehydic florals tend to really last.

    I tend to think of the big 80s scents for longevity and sillage - Obsession, Paloma Picasso, Carolina Herrera, Coco, Eternity, Fendi, Ivoire, Jardins de bagatelle, Beautiful, Knowing, Must de Cartier, Moschino, Poison, Samsara, Sung, Tresor, Wrappings, Ysatis. All of these should be relatively easy to find.

    I think you are on the right track with Angel, if you both like that one you'll be in luck - not too pricey, very available.

    Youth Dew will last me a good 12 hours and I tend to have a lot of fragrances disappear on me. $32 for 3.4 oz here in the states and I need two sprays at most. Wore it for a three hour car ride and had to wash it off it got some overpowering.

    Does Angel have a Longevity & Sillage as Joop Homme (Male) ?

    I guess you'll find out

    I don't know if I've ever smelled Joop, but there is a lady here at work who wears the Angel and I can always tell when she's been somewhere, the scent remains, it's loud. She sometimes wears Britney Spears Fantasy which does the same thing, announces her and stays behind. I don't know if that one lasts or if she reapplies. She's our office Loud Perfume Lady but it fits her style and I don't think anyone is bothered by it.

    Also, if you love something but it doesn't last in your climate or on your skin, reapplying isn't a big deal if you are wearing the same perfume a lot of the time. I have purse sprays of my beloved Jailia and Reglisse Noire, and roller-thing of Karmala, and a solid perfume of the Love Etc, together in a little bag in my purse so those are easy to reapply.

    definitively, yes!!! Even much more 'TM - Angel' does have than Joop Homme!!!! But I do not think to be so suitable to weather conditions at your country. it is very cloying and I cannot imagine the effect of it there...

    I would try CHANEL - CRISTALLE EDT (no EDP)
    Excellent sillage and longevity, green, sweet and sparkling!!!!

    Another excellent perfume as itself because its delightful smell and more than excellent sillage & longevity (actually a longevity monster to my skin) is YVRESSE by YSL. Very classy, not cloying, and for me it has a good development. More 8 hours longevity on my skin, and it shows elegance... I really love this stuff!!!!

    I do not know EUPHORIA so I cannot help you. Check the reviews at database so you can approach to this fragrance. But for sure there is someone her who can explain how good or not is this perfume for your expectatives.
