    Default The worst of the worst: Projection / Longevity

    As the title suggests, drop your fragrances that just have terrible longevity and horrendous projection.

    The following made my list:
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche sitting at 2 hours, with 1.5 hours stuck on skin
    Lacoste Essential Sport
    D&G The One
    D&G The One Gentleman

    As much as I love Gucci II, it's probably the weakest frag in my wardrobe for both projection and longevity.

    Creed Royal Island Water and Virgin Island Water. I really like the pleasant softness of these scents but they just die on my skin and on my clothes they last not more than one hour.

    Amouage Dia I can not smell it after ten minutes of applying it. And Creeds Neroli Sauvage I bought two samples from two different places and after twenty minutes on my skin both times it was gone with hardly any projection.

    Wow, HDS, I can smell Erolfa all day long. Why we're all different.

    For me:
    Borsari Aqcua Classica and Ed Hardy Love and Luck.

    Millesime Imperial too if it's really hot. No problems on mild days though.

    Love all of the below but longevity/sillage is an issue. Only wear them when I'm only going out for a short while

    Polo Blue
    Givenchy Pour Homme Red (Although I'm discovering in recent times it's not as bad as I first thought)
    Carlos Santana (Great while it lasts though)
    Hanae Mori EDT
    Higher

    I love Trumper Extract of West Indian Limes, but longevity is nearly nonexistent. You put it on and get a great invigorating natural lime, then it is gone in minutes (or maybe I should say seconds). Too bad, really.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
    9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie

    This is irrelevant in a way, but I've been waiting for an opportunity to say that VIW lasts a good 15 hours on me! I love this one, so it's a bonus!

    Creed Bois de Cedrat. I love it, but it disappears almost immediately into a skin scent even if I bathe in it.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Why "terrible" longevity and "horrendous" projection? Not all of us want to smell like the Empress of all the Russias all the time.

    On some hot days I only want to wear a simple eau de cologne, and if I have to work closely with people, a close skin scent that I can feel comfortable in is all I need.

    Hermes d' Orange Verte - really like it, but so short lived, it's a deal killer for me.

    On El- good scent, yet even after half an hour, any trace of longevity is gone in spite of generous and- often repeated- applications

    No kidding. How can they keep selling this? 10-15 minutes. Maybe someone with a super sensitive nose can get something out of it. It's heavenly lime, but gone before you leave the bathroom to get dressed.
