    Default Endymion longevity problems

    Well for the first time in a long time I've found myself having problems with a fragrance not lasting long enough. Specifically Endymion. It seems like it dies after 3 hours of putting it on. I've been using 3 sprays. Anyone else have problems with this frag and or suggestions to make it last longer?

    I seriously love this thing though it just dies so fast. Don't know if buying a bottle could be worth it at this point.
    Expect the unexpected.

    Don't have experience with this particular fragrance but maybe you could try applying an unscented lotion prior to applying the fragrance and see if it lasts longer.

    I get about 4 hours with Endymion, wore it earlier today. If you dont mind a mid day spritz. Its one of my favorites, no doubt.

    Endymion is an EDT, but is very light at best. A nice scent. For longevity, try the EDP of Midnight In Paris. Similar to Endymion.

    I have noticed that Penhaligons may improve their longevity, otherwise, it would be a shame for such good fragrance notes to last rather short.

    I never had that problem with it.

    I find that in general, fragrances die very quickly on me if I apply them right out of the shower. Are you doing that?

    If so, I recommend waiting a good half hour before applying.

    I am pretty sure Endymion is EDC strength; at least my bottle only says cologne.

    But I do get decent longevity out of it.

    To be honest its powdery general signature was only just detectable even when it hung around, which on my skin was not that long... I was not too impressed with it scent or longevity-wise, albeit I have encountered much, much worse on both counts.
