    Pomegranate Noir lasts a really long time on me, I am still able to smell it after taking shower.

    Jo Malone fragrances tend not to have too much longevity. The best is probably Pomegranate Noir, and Blue Agava and Cacao.

    They are not known for their longevity, but they do have some that are better than others as noted above.

    Amber & Lavender has good projection ime. Longevity is rather short however at about 6 hours.

    Velvet Rose and Oud has both longevity and projection and actually is an amazing smelling one, for me.

    Another vote for Pomegranate Noir and Amber and Lavender. Also Rose Water and Vanilla.

    Pomegranate Noir projects big time. I used to work with a woman that wore it and she'd fume out the whole office!

    I got decent longevity out of wild fig and cassis, but most of the rest I have tried have had abysmal longevity. Doubt I will ever own anything from this house because all the ones I like simply don't last.

    Wild Fig and Cassis is what I wore for years, and it lasted all day on me, but did not project much (which I prefer). I suppose it might have if I'd gone crazy on the sprays. Pomegranate Noir projects and lasts, all right, but I think it smells like Satan's bathroom freshener, so I did not appreciate that feature.

    I have found most Jo Malone's to fade quickly, but there are a few with decent longevity. The best in my opinion is Rose Water and Vanilla. It's a powerhouse.

    I was not impressed with any fragrances in this line back in 2009, recently I tried their new velvet oud and other new additions and I was not impressed this time either.
