    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.

    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.

    Have to agree with this one! Most find Polo Blue rather generic but I also like this one!

    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!

    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)

    Most people here are just picking a fragrance with 'blue' in the name.

    Do you mean 'blue' as in shower gel/aqua/high street ubiquity?

    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.
    Fall/Winter Rotation:

    Versace Man by Versace
    Iceberg The Fragrance by Iceberg
    Amber Intense by Prada
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    Burberry London
    Lanvin Avant Garde

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    This is actually going to be one of my next purchases. I know everyone says Eternity Aqua is a ripoff of Polo Blue, but personally, I like it a lot more. It does have that melon/cucumber vibe, but Eternity Aqua seems much wetter and more aquatic, while Polo Blue is dryer and more herbal.

    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 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
