    Default office scent recommendation similar to versace pour homme

    hey BN members!

    i've been in search for an office scent for long. particularly i'd like to find a better alternative to versace pour homme which i get 1 or 2 hs longevity maximum. i like the mediterranean, masculin and handsome nature it has and its versatility but i'm fed up with its zero durability.

    i know, allure homme sport comes to mind first but i don't find those 2 similar except top notes. i find ahs a semi-masculin, creamy, citrus scent which is not what i'm looking for. do u think bleu de chanel would fit the bill? or can u recommend sth else?

    thanks in advance!

    If you don't find AHS similar then I doubt you'll find Bleu even remotely similar.

    i think i couldn't describe the similarity well enough. the similarity i'm looking for is about "the feeling it gives" rather than "the smell itself". for instance, i find versace ph and bleu comparatively macho scents while ahs gives a much more gentle impression to me. don't know if it makes any sense..

    I think Bleu de Chanel would be a great office scent. Not sure it has great longevity either though.

    try:

    Beyond Paradise for Men by Estee Lauder - Upon application, one is treated to a salt water and fruity melange. I suspect Eden's Mist is calone with its watery, marine and ozone accord furnishing a delightful, fresh, seashore apparition. Fruitiness of ripened melons and somewhat medicinal cucumber is provided by the Brazilian jabuticaba, while South African buchu leaves impart their rain forest vibe with their lush and woody aspects as well as a faint mintiness. This refreshing opening drifts to the waiting middle. Here, in the heart, herbaceous lavender, with its inherent freshness, a mediterranean accord of earth and sweet cistus as well as vivacious herbs overhaul the blend. Balsamic sage along with verdurous tarragon, with its licorice and lemon vibe, as well as lemony and woody thyme wonderfully interplay. The strong base usurps this bracing mix. Old and weather-beaten beachwood, green and grassy vetiver, minty and muddy patchouli, earthy and foresty oakmoss as well as light and spicy melaleuca bark, all bestow their sensuous character. A fascinating drydown ensues. This impressive and manly composition has good projection and very good longevity.

    Bond Andy Warhol Montauk. It is aquatic and shares a hyacinth note with VPH, and also some dry woods in the base.

    Honestly though, I can't imagine only getting 2 hours of longevity from VPH. It smells STRONG on me 8+ hours after I've applied. Maybe try spraying less (as counterintuitive as that sounds), as it could be a case of olfactory fatigue.

    u may be right. top notes of vph are really strong for a citrus-aquatic and can easily cause olfactory fatigue although i spray it far away from my nose.
