    Default Which "male fragrance" has the best longevity and sillage?

    I know it's a wide-open question, but which fragrance do you use that has remarkable longevity and sillage? I'm looking for something that I will sense on myself for at least 12 hours without freshing up, and which others around me will notice.

    Anything except Montale Black Aoud which, as I have posted before, is wonderful, but just very short-lived on me because of olfactory fatigue or whatever reason.

    Thanks.

    I have Reflection. How much do you use at a time? Two/three sprays? Or more?

    Well, on me, I would list, alphabetically, (see also my wardrobe http://www.basenotes.net/wardrobe/47321 ; most of my listings have my subjective take on "longevity"):

    Absolue pour le Soir
    Azzaro pour Homme
    Beyond Paradise for Men (I'm guessing others would probably not list this, but for me, it lasts)
    Bogart pour Homme
    Kouros (long half-life! ;-] )
    M7
    Michael for Men
    Number 3 / Le 3me Homme / The Third Man by Caron
    Rive Gauche pour Homme

    I can still identify each these on my skin 24 hours (or more) later.

    Bogart pour Homme is the longevity king on me, at least. 24 hours is not uncommon.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Musk Ravageur

    Edit: At first I thought the thread title said "which MALLE fragrance has the best sillage and longevity". None the less I stand by my recommendation.

    Mazzolari Lui. I have only used this as a dab-on from a sample, but I imagine that a spray from a bottle would be devastatingly potent and last forever

    Kouros. Ten sprays. You'll smell it for the rest of your life, and so will everyone else in your area code.
    My top 5: Sea Mist; Minnow; Crab, tiger, and almonds; Semprini; Rancid Polecat N° 2
