    +1 on above. i might add montale and nasomatto (all of them), almost any powerhouse frag from the 80's (that's not necessarily a good thing), tuscan leather, tom ford extreme, some serge lutens as well (chergui for instance).

    Wow, I wonder how many people claim that Black Aoud is so strong. Ok, it's not weak, but it's not insanely strong imo. The longest lasting scent I know is sables by Annick Goutal. It's quite strong, but I don't think it is room filling. How ironic knowing that most Goutals are rather faint and short-lived.

    Oddly, Boss Bottled. I have no idea why, but Boss #6 gets crazy longevity on me. Too bad I don't like it.

    My skin chemistry must be really odd because A*Men doesn't last particularly long on me. Le Male is strangely gone in 3-4 hours. On the other hand, there are a lot of woody fragrances that go all day on my skin.

    These both last forever and project on my skin:

    HdP 1740
    FM Carnal Flower
    FM Portrait of a Lady
    MFK Absolue pour le Soir
    Tom Ford Amber Absolute
    SSS Tabac Aurea
    Bond NY Oud

    My skin eats most scents. FM Bois d'Orage is gone in about 30 minutes, and Nasomatto Duro is a tame puppy on my skin.

    Poison (Dior). Some years ago, I applied a bit after showering before I went to bed. The next morning I had a class at 12 and everyone was sniffing it. I felt so self-conscious lol

    +1 for Poison. Adding Opium, Obsession & Youth Dew, none of which l like.

    Of those l do like; l agree with Amber Absolute & Ambra Mediterranea, as well as most Montales. Also Fracas & Alien.

    Yes, Opium would be long lasting - but my soap & water along with a strong scrubbing kept it from lasting more than 30 minutes.

    Gucci Pour Homme ii and Tommy Bahama Set Sails St. Barts last through a shower and the night into the next morning - but have little to no projection on me. And some of the biggest projectors dissipate far before it's convenient for them to do so. Go figure.

    Another +1 for Joop! You shouldn't be aloud to come in contact with another human until 1 hour has passed after applying this stuff.

    The strongest, longest lasting perfume I ever had was "Sandal". It was an Indian hanky perfume. I don't think that it was meant to be worn on the skin, but the lady that gave it to me wore it on her skin and it smells sooooo amazing on her. When you walk on the 3rd floor, you can always tell if she is working because you can smell her perfume as soon as you get off the elevator. It lasts a long time on the skin also. You can take a shower and still smell hints of it afterwards. Same applies when you wash the clothes you wore with the perfume. You can still smell it in your clothes after a wash or 2.
    Diva is fartin in your perfume mist before you walk through it!! Walk slow and let it marinate......

    Burberry Touch, Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille, Creed Santal, Creed Himalaya, Bvlgari BLV and Bvlagari Aqua all have HUGE longevity with my chemistry.

    As you mentioned above, Le Male is a killer.

    Tom Ford's Black Orchid lasts forever and can really project. If you're leary about wearing a frag marketed toward women go with Jaipur Homme EDP - it lasts all day and can fill the room if you put more than 2 sprays. But you have to buy the EDP to get the projection and longevity. Also, try some of the classic 80's fragrances - alot of "loud" ones there!

    Nothing lasts more than the faintest trace beyond 6 hours. I mean, you would literally have to stick your nose on my wrist to smell it, even if I have 4-5 sprays on. This includes heavy hitters like Fracas, tobacco vanille and SDV. I have very, very dry skin. Lotion helps- but not as much as I would like.

    It's not olfactory fatigue either. I've asked a lot of people, they can't smell it either (until they are 0.5 cm from my skin). Im currently wearing 12 sprays of acqua di parma. Lol.

    That's why I chose scentsucker as my username.

    Two more to add to the list: Chrome by Azzaro. It's inexpensive, easy to get your hands on, and a few sprays will fill the room and stay on you all day. And, my favorite "performer": Winter Star by Michael Storer. I seriously only "spittle" this onto my skin. I don't even give myself a full spray. A tiny bit of it on each arm - less than half a spray and I'm good. Give it a full spray on each arm and you will anounce your presence the second you walk through the door. This is good stuff indeed.
