    Talking Fragrances with the strongest Performance and tremendous Projection/Longevity

    noticed another thread about "Inexpensive strong fragrances"
    but i wan't to take away that limit and ask the community to give me their STRONGEST performers

    we are talking Le Male and A* Men, Tom Ford etc.
    Stuff that engulfs the room and strangles out any other fragrances.

    Also seen as i have given a couple examples already, I want you to dig deep and find fragrances that are heavy hitters and blast off the skin and last a long time that you know personally and some of us may not know.
    so go for it: Give me your heavy hitters your work horses, your show offs and attention seekers!

    What do you feel is the fragrance with the best performance?

    thanks chaps! George.

    Most Amouages and Histoires de Parfums (at least the few of each I own) have crazy projection and longevity. I'm not allowed to wear 1740 to work ever again.

    Givenchy Play Intense. I sprayed twice in the morning, three hours later a friend asked how much cologne I had sprayed. Needless to say the juice is super strong and not for the faint of heart. If I'm looking for people to notice what I'm wearing, Play Intense is my go-to.

    Had an epic experience with Windsor over the weekend. Put 3 sprays on (one on chest and one each side of neck) an 6:30pm friday night and could still smell it sunday night into monday morning. Thats after 2 showers too. Actually still got whiffs of the eucalyptus until midday monday which is mind blowing . Awesome experience for a first wear. I've gotten 24+ hours out of a few frags (Puredistance, Leather Oud, Le Male) but never 60+

    Montale Black Aoud is some pretty strong stuff, as is Bond's Riverside Drive.

    I think many Montales will be put into this category I.e. Black Aoud.
    Byredo Pulp is pretty beastly and so are some Mancera fragrances, Sand Aoud and The Aoud being two of them specifically. Bogart pour Homme strong as well.

    +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.

    +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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
