    Voyage d'hermes and eau d'orange verte. Both great in summer but longevity is ridiculous.

    Dior Fahrenheit, Every Creed(except BdP and Aventus), Prada Amber Pour Homme, and pretty much every designer fragrance ever created. Really.

    Most frags by Diptique fade within minutes on me.

    For me, Neroli Portofino. I know some people praise it's longevity, but on me it's poor. Real shame as I love the scent.

    I find most Kenzo's really bad in longevity.

    I can definitely believe it! I'm on a Caron kick and was wearing Yatagan yesterday. I'd smelled it before, but this was my first time wearing it. I was really surprised it didn't last longer. I wouldn't say I got poor longevity. I got at least five hours, maybe six. But I expected that stuff to be screaming off my skin for ages and then on my shirt for days. Nope. It was average at best. Like I said, that really surprised me.
    I have a 100ml Gucci Pour Homme 2003 that I'll swap for Reflection Man or De Bachmakov. PM me if interested.

    I would LOVE for the dry down of Chanel Les Exclusifs Bois des Iles edt to last longer than the 2 - 3 hours I get. I don't mind that it wears close to the skin, but after a few hours it seems to be gone. Haven't tried the parfum concentration.

    - Yves Rocher 'Trimaran' : Good heavy citrus-woody very fresh fragrance but on me not lasting longer than 1.5 hrs

    - Revillon 'R': A gem by Maurice Roucel and my all time favourite fresh fragrance when lasting longer than 2-4 hrs max. depending on application.

    - Zino (current version): 3 hrs max, no matter how much is applied. I own vintage which lasts 6-8 hrs easily (but also smells pretty different)!
    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Pal Zileri: Cuoio
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme/Solo
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Revillon R
    - MPG: Santal Noble
    - Acqua di Parma: Colonia Intensa /Leather/Oud
    - Knize Ten
    - YSL: Kouros (Fraîcheur)
    - Dior: Aqua Fahrenheit

    Oud, Robert Piguet. Definitely a favorite, though I find it last a couple of hours at best.

    kenneth cole reaction and Eau D'Orange Vert smell awesome but don't last. I just don't understand, do these perfumers even test these out, 2-3 hours is not acceptable.

    ADP Colonia, and Colonia Essenza (and all of the other flankers)
    D&G "The One"
    seriously, what is wrong with D&G and why are they not listening to all of the complaints. I would buy that stuff monthly if they made it stronger... instead i haven't bought it since 2008, after i ran out.

    I get this with a lot of Neroli based frags. It's usually that nice top note that dissipates very quickly. Most Citrus based frags (high quality) don't last.

    Dior - Eau Sauvage, the classic EDT version. And I'm really sad about that! Have to reapply every 3 hours.

    I know the Creed cheerleaders will all chirp in and disagree...but I LOVE Himalaya and it only last 30min MAX on me. I've asked impartial people to take a whiff...gone. What a waste of money

    I and my wife *love* Michael Kors for Men, but the scent only lasts for a few hours at best, even with 6 spritzes.
    Maybe I'll try doing more, and admittedly, the spritzes from this bottle are pretty small.
    With better longevity, this one could damn near be my #1.... with VC&A PH, Quorum, and Prada Amber PH right up there also.

    All the Creed I have and had in the past. Timbuktu by L'artisan , but I hear others in that line have the same problem and TF noir de noir. The last one was surprising to me. Most other people get good longevity from it. I have very dry skin though.
    Current top choices:
    1- Portrait of A Lady
    2- 34 st Germaine Boulevard by Diptyque
    3- Bleecker Street by Bond 9
    4- Acqua Di Parma Oud
    5- Clive Christian #1
    6- Coromandel by Chanel
    7- Acqua Di Parmal Colonia Intensa
    8- Guerlain Derby
    9- MFK lumiere Noir
    10- Dans Tes Bras

    Love the actual scent, but would enjoy it even more with better longevity.
    I have the shaving cream Its fantastic! And I can still smell it on my face after a while If I'm not wearing fragrance.
    To answer the OP mine would be Pure Shot.
