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

    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 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)!

    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.

    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- Guerlain Derby
    3- Tom Ford Cafe Rose
    4- Bond 9 New York Oud
    5- Clive Christian #1
    6- Coromandel by Chanel
    7- Acqua Di Parmal Oud
    8- Chanel 19
    9- Dior Oud Isphahn
    10- Carnal Flower

    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.
