    Default Whats the longest lasting modern cologne?

    im 24 looking for a modern cologne that fits my age range that will last as long as say, the green polo(which lasts all day). Ive tried eternity, cool waters,tommy, zino, code, obsession as well as others. The ones that lasted the longest on me were probobaly eternity and code, most dont last more than 4 hours before dying out. my cap is 70. Looking for something modern and interesting/complex

    Perhaps try Spicebomb by Viktor & Rolf to see how the longevity plays out on your skin.

    try Montales - $70 and mega sillage/longevity IMO.
    Just dont know which particular one would be for you.
    Red Vetyver?

    When you said cologne I thought you really meant cologne and was going to suggest Durro but I think you mean cologne as in perfume.

    Then I suggest Noble Vetiver.

    for swap/sale:

    One Man Show Gold by Bogart should last a good while.

    Rive Gauche pour Homme gets good longevity - at least, as far as I know it

    Ducati EDT that came out a few years back is the longest lasting new scent I have come across. I think it lasts longer and more strongly than Eternity.

    The longest lasting scent of all by two country miles is Joop Homme - a good scent if it is relatively unknown where you live, but annoying down here where numerous people wear it and leave vapour trails from a block away.
    Cheers,

    The craziest longevity I've ever seen its Narciso Rodriguez for him.

    The first time I sprayed this only myself, I did my normal 4 sprays. BAAAAD idea. I was a walking violet musk bomb for the entire 15 hours I wore my clothes for.

    I tossed my shirt in the hamper...3 days later, my entire hamper now smells like it..

    I washed the shirt....STILL smelled of it! Wore that same shirt a week later, i could smell it, and even after I applied perfume on top!

    Finally 3 washes later, it was completely gone.

    We use Ecos detergent, which doesn't have all the crap Tide does, so I'm sure it that made it more noticeable.

    1 spray with this!

    Molecule 01, while practically invisible when you spray it on, lasts a veeeerrrrry long time.

    The room where I apply it smells like an Iso E Super bomb went off, even when I don't wear it that day. The scent just keeps building and building with each application, like it never fades at all. In fact, I find the smell is stronger hours in than it is when applied.

    I am quite certain I will eventually be able to smell it the minute I walk in the door at the end of the day.

    I wholly and totally agree. Molecule 01 is magical and amazingly awesome.

    Also, Tuscan Leather lasts a good long time on me, as does Tom Ford OUd Wood.

    Ramone Monegal "Agar Musk" lasts long too.

    Joop! Pour Homme...we are talking all day longevity with only one spray. Not listed in the notes, but I get a warm tobacco vibe from this. Perfect for winter.

    The beast of all beasts for me is Memoir Woman extrait one spray at 7.00 am goes well into the evening hours. Interlude man also from Amouage lasts and lasts. Montale Red Vetyer seems to never gives up the ghost either.

    Guys, just a reminder that this user was asking for advice about this fragrance a year and a half ago. Hopefully he found something by now! (Also, his cap was $70 if you look at the original post).
