    Default Burberry london your opinion on longevity!

    So i whipped out my newly fresh Burberry London bottle from the box today and man was amazed by the smell of it fresh, my nose picked up some holiday scent to it like an alpine Christmas tree smell hinted with a sweet bouquet of something i cant describe totally AWESOME!

    But... here comes my dilemma do you guys who wear it get poor longevity like 2 hours? I sprayed 3 times two in the neck one in the chest after 2 hours the scent fainted away! do you guys get this complaint?
    (remember summer time i live in long island NY humidity and sweat when not in an a/c)

    It lasts four hours on me but I find if you spray it on your shirt or clothing the scent lingers much longer.

    This fragrance does last for many hours but I just can't get into that Christmas, alpine tree smell. I actually feel guilty that I do not like this scent. I had a bottle and passed it on to my brother.

    Lasts like 3 hours on me and I use lotion on my skin.

    I really like it because the Christmas smell, kind of want to pick up a small bottle just to wear it on Christmas.
    Expect the unexpected.

    Love it, it's probably my cold weather signature. That being said, I seem to be one of the lucky ones because I'll get 8 or 9 hours every time.

    I get average longevity out of it. If I want to punch it up a bit I'll pair it with the aftershave, which is excellent.

    I only get an hour or two from it (I have this issue with many frags) but I think Burberry wanted it to be subtle.

    It has average longevity on me either. Apply behind earlobes, on the hair.

    It has excellent scent which might be my favourite ever but one of worst longevity. (anything after 2 hours is very very close to skin).

    Terrible longevity on me. I got maybe two hours out of it the one time I tried it on my skin.

    I get reasonably good longevity with this, although I'm aware many people report poor longevity.

    Although I have no problems with this scent, there is at least one other in my collection that is widely praised for it's excellent longevity, whereas I only get 2 hours or so from it. And it's incredibly annoying as I love the scent in question!

    So although I don't have the issue with this particular scent, I can sympathise with those that do!

    Burberry London for Men by Burberry has average longevity and projection.
    This nicely blended composition cries out for the cold so it may manifest all its glory.

    i too am on long island but only where it in cooler. i think this scent mixed with sweat would not be a good combo for me. lasts most of the day on me though.

    I'm wearing Burberry London for the 2nd time this week. 8 hours since application and I can still get consistent whiffs of it. The way I sprayed it though is with the spritzer really close (about an inch away) to my skin (nothing on clothing).
