    Default Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT has bad longevity and projection

    I finally had a chance to wear my Chanel Pour Monsieur EDT that I got from Spain last month... again this is not the Concentree, this is the EDT... the smell is great, but the longevity and projection is pretty bad... I got like 4 hr max with very little projection.. by lunch time it was about gone... I applied 4 spray on me... 2 on each side of the neck.. 1 on the back of the neck and 1 on the chest.... I guess I should apply like 10 sprays next time....
    My Top 10

    1. Amouage Homage Attar
    2. Serge Lutens - Muscs Koublai Khan
    3. YSL M7
    4. Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
    5. Chanel Egoiste
    6. 24 Gold by Scentstory
    7. Amouage Epic Man
    8. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    9. Bond No. 9 New York Oud
    10. Serge Lutens - Chergui

    lucky you getting 4 hr. !
    I would be happy with that longevity about my pm.
    Longevity is the only snag of an absolutely wonderful fragance.

    Just take the bottle along with you and re-apply as necessary. It's good stuff. Subtle and refined is the intended effect.

    Its not the best in longevity but its not weak either, especially in the projection dept. above average imo.

    That's just the nature of this fragrance. It's not as short lived as an EDC, but close. Reapplication is necessary. Also try spraying on fabric rather than skin to help increase the longevity a bit.

    Although I like the regular EDT, I am happier with the longevity and projection of the Concentree.

    Agreed. Not a popular POV on BN, but I actually prefer the Concentree.

    Sometimes when a fragrance smells this good I couldn't care much about projection and longevity....I'll just apply more or reapply mid day.

    Great idea, but this stuff is not cheap to keep reapplying...

    Vintage style scents generally use very good ingredients and some natural ones, too. Thus, longevity is not great, but that's part of it.

    I also prefer the more modern concentree version.

    To me, this scent had indeed no projection, but pretty good longevity, albeit as a "skin scent", very close to me and hardly sensed by others

    yes, this and Eau Sauvage are 2 of my favorites but unfortunately it is very bad at longetivity and projection. worse: the citrus notes off the top which I admire most are gone after 15 minutes.
