    Default Just wore TWENTY sprays of EROLFA out, smell went away in an hour + Review of Jaguar for Men

    The EROLFA was strong for an hour or so but now it's a skin scent. I sprayed it all over my arms, shirt and everything too. Sigh.

    I blind purchased Jaguar for men, since I like Jaguar cars. It's not bad really. It's basically Tiffany for Men without the sweetness, and with more masculinity. I doubt I would ever wear it out, but it will be in that "Royal English Leather" category - meaning stuff I wear for myself around the house.

    That's pretty surprising. I have never had a problem with Erolfa lasting. Three sprays lasted me all day.

    that sucks, its a great scent. I tried a sample of it back in the day and remember loving it, and even smelled it after a shower on me. Surprising it didn't last, but then again, it's from Creed and as much as I love them I know they are not the longest lasting. One hour is horrible though. That's how MI was for me - 30 minutes and poof, $5 worth of fragrance gone!

    glad you are enjoying Jaguar! Love the fragrance and the cars too.

    I hear this is the worst longevity of the creeds.

    Carry a small spray decant of Erolfa with you. A discreet trip to the bathroom and a quick spritz-up will bring back the best of it in seconds.

    You're lucky the smell of Eralpha went away so quickly.

    Also, I personally see no similarities between Jaguar for Men and Tiffany for Men.

    Yup, I love the smell but can barely make it outta the house before I need to re-apply.

    spraying MORE doesn't make it last LONGER... it just means you'll have more of the smell for the same time period.

    I only get 4 hours max wearing Erolfa in the heat and also in AC. It seems to be one of the shorter lasting Creeds and also one of the poorest in projection. I bought it and returned it for Bleu de Chanel which I like much better.

    Erolfa lasts a good long time on me. Sure you're not just desensitized to it, while you gas out everyone around you?

    Twenty sprays would fatigue even the most well trained nose in a very short amount of time. I imagine you are getting such an acrid blast at first that by the time the heart/base takes over your olfactory senses are absolutely shot.

    Was your Jaguar green bottle/wood cap? If so, what nation is listed? Mine is Made in Switzerland.

    The law of diminishing marginal utilities at it's finest. Consider this, you are very thirsty. You get a bottle of water and drink it, by far the best bottle of water you have ever had. You drink another, its okay but nothing like the first one. Each passing bottle gives you less satisfaction to the point where you no longer desire any water. Applied to olfactory senses, they were overwhelmed by it in the beginning but each passing sniff your sense of smell grew more fatigued until your perception of it diminished.

    Same thing here Erolfa lasts a good 5-8 hours on my skin, it really evolves after 20 minutes of application...

    gross. twenty sprays? glad i don't know you.

    also, people who test fragrances out before they buy them, guess what? It pays to find out what works on YOUR skin before you OWN it

    Never any problems with me personally. I'd say it's average to slightly better so for longevity compared to other Creeds. If your hypothesis is it doesn't last long, try spraying yourself 20 times in a room full of people. If no one clears the room, bitches or complains, then your hypothesis that it's weak is probably true. But I'd bet the house this isn't going to be the case.

    LOL, it looks like you are on a "whats listed at the bottom of the fragrance bottle" kick. I'm pretty sure just telling what cap a Jaguar bottle has is enough.

    I agree. I find Erolfa to be on the powerful side and its longevity go for up to 24 hours. It's easily one of those scents that I wake up smelling the next day from just a couple of sprays to the chest.
