    Strictly judging by my own wardrobe: XXL by Daniel Hechter, any projection and longevity being gone in half an hour or even less.

    Extract of West Indian Limes by Geo F. Trumper. It really is a shame because I absolutely love the invigorating blast of natural lime it begins with... Unfortunately, that beginning is also the end, as it disappears within a minute (litterally).

    +1 for D&G The One. Some of the best top notes I've ever smelt. This doesn't even turn into a skin scent...it completely disappears.

    I think its unfair to put 4711 in this category.
    Its original purpose was to refresh the skin with a liquid, and then they innovatively added some fragrant materials in the formula, to it have smell while it does its job.
    Its like a shampoo, its normal a shampoo that the smell goes away seconds after application, the purpose is clean the hair and head.

    They say "That means more $ for "Us", because you need to go through a bottle a day due to reapplying constantly. May I have your repeat order today? ... And you *may* want to stock up with a few extras for when you run out again, like tomorrow. ;-)

    Mugler Cologne. I absolutely DRENCH my skin in it, and after fifteen minutes it's barely there; totally gone in an hour.

    Even worse than Bois de Cedrat, which used to be my most fleeting.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    Hmm... it lasts a bit more than a minute on me. Now Penhaligons Extract of Limes, that one can perform magic tricks.... unfortunately, its trick is a disappearing act!

    David Beckham's line also have horrible longevity. I still have Intimately Beckham in my collection and that has horrible longevity which is a shame because I think the Beckham frags are quite good.

    D&G The One lasts and projects very well for me, but what doesn't, and one of my absolute favorites is Creed Windsor I/II. On my skin I get maybe an hour, on clothing it lasts considerably longer so I do 10-15 there.

    The term Happy Hour does not apply to this - it is giving it a little too much credit.
    My brother used to wear this and it would linger for hours. I've never liked it and found it quite annoying that it would be still visiting when he'd left hours ago.

    I was just sent a sample of Alvarez Gomez "Agua de Colognia Concentrada" and I really like it, but it was gone in about 10mins Seriously fleeting.

    Maybe you have really dry skin, because bois de cedrat lasts 6-8hrs one me.
