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.
Bulgari Blu. Fantastic powdery fresh ginger

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.
NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .
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.
Current Top Favorites:

Polo blue and Issey Miyake are your best bet for longevity .
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
Yes, I meant an aquatic fragrance with good longevity...sorry for not being more clear.
I don't mind either way.....if they are just mentioning ones with Blue/Bleu in the name, that is fine. I was originally looking for 'aquatic', so again I apologize for not being more clear.
Givenchy pour Homme Blue Label
Bleu de Chanel has terrible longevity on my skin. Bulgari Blu lasts longer, with less sillage. And yet no one seems to wear it.
Current Top Ten:
1. Creed Millesime Imperial
2. Serge Lutens Chergui
3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
4. Creed Virgin Island Water
5. Chanel Eau de Cologne
6. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
7. Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme
8. Bulgari Blu
9. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
10. YSL Kouros
Jacomo Deep Blue doesn't last very long on me at all. I'd vote Subtil by Ferragamo ahead of many of these. Coincidentally, this has shorter longevity on most people who've reviewed it. Guess it all depends on the skin...Subtil is a GREAT (not good) aquatic on my skin. You wish you smelled this good....
And Kenzo PH as well.
Lanvin Avant Garde
Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
VC&A Midnight in Paris
Dior Homme Intense
Davidoff Hot Water
If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

+ 1 on Versace PH
Any thoughts on Eternity Aqua?
I've sniffed E. Aqua several times now, and each time I love it more and more. I usually don't care for CK fragrances, but this one is different and is by far my favorite of theirs.
I will go with Nautica Voyage here.
But I do Like Hugh Parsons, always will.
I sampled it on paper briefly with about a dozen other fragrances on a Macy's binge. I don't remember much about it other than I did like it but it didn't blow me away. Have been meaning to sample this one more extensively to form a more conclusive opinion as I am an unrepentant fan of the CK house
D&G light blue.
Dunhill Desire Blue
