I am looking for a 'blue' fragrance and I was wondering if you could recommend one with great longevity. Thanks! Ben
Bleu de Chanel lasts a good eight hours on me. Gets better with repeated wearings. Give it a try - you can swipe a quick spray or two at any decent department store.
Hugh Parsons (Blue) - plus it smells a helluva lot better than most "blue" fragrances.

I know it's cliche and is the originator of "blue" scents, but Davidoff's Cool Water has great longevity on me & still smells spectacular IMHO.
Bleu de Chanel +1
Chrome +1. This stuff lasts all day, smells good, and is crazy cheap on the Internet.

I am one that likes Polo Blue and will receive compliments when wearing.....Chanel Bleu does not work for me and I wish it did.....Gary
Jacomo Deep Blue
+1 on Bleu de Chanel. It has excellent longevity, and also smells better than just about any other "blue" scent on the market.

Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
+1 Bleu de Chanel.
Also, check out Washington Square by Bond if you get a chance. Kind of a blue/purple smell - good longevity and moderate sillage. A wonderful scent!

Solo Lowe Intense lasts around 6 hours on my skin.
Try Nautica Voyage, smells like the beach and I get much better longevity out of it than Chrome, Bleu or Polo Blue that have been previously mentioned (although I do enjoy these 3 as well considering I own 2/3 of them)
Desire Blue lasts 8-10 hours on my skin.
