    Default I really like YSL L'Homme BUT I need something that lasts longer

    Hi everyone,
    With a few EDT samples from Nordstrom I've been thrust into the world of men's fragrances. So far I have tried a few fragrances and I really like YSL L'homme. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to last for more than three or four hours.

    Are there any similar scents that last all day? Or does this type of scent generally die down quickly?

    any recommendations appreciated

    I feel you, man. L'homme is on the sweeter side, so I might try 1 Million by paco robanne.
    I think anything that lacks deep basenotes has longevity issues. Great thread; I am curious myself to see what people suggest. Are you open to trying things a little more pricey?

    Possibly, if I really like the scent. I guess I like the citrus smell of l'homme with its masculine base notes. But I could imagine this "profile" will have longevity issues because of isn't very imposing or strong.

    I like that l'homme is understated and not imposing. Unfortunately it might mean I have to apply it throughout the day.

    Anvers 2 makes a good substitute for YSL L'Homme. Similar feel, higher quality, better longevity.

    YSL L'Homme Concentrate is like an intense version that last much longer and the sillage is much better.
