    Not sure why, but It just seems to last longer on some people compared to others. Friend and I tested using a bottle I picked up, equal amount sprayed to necks and wrists. Lasted 4 hours on me and barely a half hour for him, we thought fatigue may have been a factor, but his fiancé still was able to smell the scents on me and didn't smell anything on him. And as others noted you can also extend it a bit by spraying clothes, nice thing living in Arizona is its almost an 8 month usable fragrance

    Ok, I am a girl, so as you can imagine I project less than any of you (or so we can imagine). I also can smell it all day, so others, low/medium sillage, and I find it pleasent any time of the year, even if I understand why you're thinking about this for summer. Is a great scent, really. Is an unisex, as you probably know already, yet usually ladies are not appealed to it, but they do compliment it a lot (on men!!!).
    Cheers.

    I know three women who have it as part of their regular rotation, so I do agree, it is unisex.

    I have found with Creed fragrances, the Longevity issue is drastically different with different people for several reasons. I refuse to buy/wear something that I have to bathe in to get any longevity out of. 3 Spritzes should last 8hrs. Some folks argue they get longevity, but when you "read between the lines" they are spraying 5-8 spritzes, spraying clothing, or defining longevity loosely by saying if they bury their nose in their arm and still catch a whiff, it is there. TO me longevity is still smelling it without lifting clothes or body parts to my nose. I have GIT, and it's longevity is 4hrs tops...BUT if I bury my nose in my arm 10hrs later I still smell it.

    I get around 6 hours from my bottle from 2009, The 2011's are excellent from what I've been told.

    Feel free to let us know when you've tried more than 2-3 scents, Because it really counts for little otherwise.
