    Default Help with projection and longevity

    I'll try and not make this a copycat thread. I am having problems with projection and longevity with some of my fragrances. I tried the Vaseline prior to application. Tried spraying on the inside of my elbows and other hot spots. Where am i going wrong here. Here's what I have, so i be expecting poor longevity with these fragrances??

    Burberry London (Really? I thought this stuff was good to go?)
    YSL - L'Homme Libre
    Polo Blue

    I am using an unscented deodorant. I usually apply 2-Neck, 2-each elbow inside 1-Shirt

    One time I must have done about 6-7 Sprays of Burberry London and I was sitting in a car with someone and they said it was still faint. This may have been about 2 hours after application at most.

    Thoughts??

    Try just 6-7 sprays on your clothes and not on skin at all. Perhaps this is a spray-on-garment-only fragrance. I get decent longevity and ample sillage when I apply it to clothing. Girls often notice (probably 70% of the time) when I'm wearing this particular scent on my clothes.

    Versace Pour Homme by Versace
    Cool Water Game by Davidoff
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    H.M. by Hanae Mori
    Vettiveru by Commes Des Garšons
    Riverside Drive by Bond No. 9
    Soon to include "Ab Spirit Silver"

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

    Are you referring to Burberry London? I understand these other aquatics aren't going to last too long especially in the winter.

    If it makes a difference to anyone else, Im up in the Northeast.

    are you buying your fragrances from reliable sources ? ... London has average longevity and projection, nevertheless, a scent cloud should have certainly been with you in the car ...

    Yea that's what I thought. I bought it from a retail store. I think he mentioned it was a discount shop maybe. I think it was legit though. It came in the classic box and all, everything looks in order.

    I find that initially its a pretty subtle yet present scent. Its just that after some time it gets really close to the skin.

    On a side note, I just sprayed some Armani Sport Code as a sample and this stuff is giving me a headache. Horrible.

    Yeah, I can't imagine it dying out so fast. Strange.

    Could the fact that I am a smoker (1 pack a day) have an effect? I haven't heard comments about how I am drowning in cologne or anything like that. So if its really close to the skin in a matter of a few hours and its difficult for others to smell then it couldn't be the smoking, right?

    I haven't tried any of the brands you listed, but a Parfume should give you some projection. As far as EDT's that I have I get good projection and longevity from L'Occitane Eau De Baux and Enrce Noire, which are two of my favorites. I often wear Amouage frags and the projection and longevity on those is the best of all the fragrances I have. Amouage Jubilation XXV and Memoir Man for example have lasted for up to 12-18 hours on my skin.

    Try spraying one or two on your clothes, that should do the trick
