Too many to list.
I wont ask if you have, I already know that you've been in this situation before, everyone has. Well, at least I know I have..
Name your most beloved fragrance that failed in the longevity department on your skin. Be sure to write down how long it stays on!
My pick: The One by Dolce & Gabbana. It lasts around 3 hours on my skin, with low sillage.

Too many to list.
Most classic British style, slightly barbershop-type EDC: thus most scents e.g. by GFT or Taylor's of Bond Street I have tested.
Love the actual scent, but would enjoy it even more with better longevity.
If Clinique's Happy For Men lasted longer, it would be among my all time favorites for summer.
Current Favorites (not in any particular order)
Hanae Mori HM EDT
Most of them....my skin sucks.
Be Bop Man lasts a short time - 2 hours tops but I still love it.
it's not that it doesn't last it's that it doesn't project enough....La Nuit de L'Homme
Aedes de Venustas L Artisan -love it , but longevity not the best :-(
Many, but I'm fine with them. Usually I re-apply or, if my mood changed, I switch to another fragrance. I'm not always up for a tenacious bomb.
Here are some...
Mark Birley For Men
Chanel Eau De Cologne
Helmut Lang EDC
Eau De Guerlain

Yatagan, if you can believe it.
D&G's The One is my obvious pick. No matter how great it smells I'd never pick up a full bottle of this. Truly abysmal longevity. Recently I picked up Beckham's First release Instinct which is a lovely natural smelling spicy vetiver. I honestly can't detect it on my skin after an hour.
Angéliques Sous La Pluie
Eau d'Orange Verte.
I would go with D&G The One.
When I first started using fragrances I over applied allure homme to the point of fatigue while simultaneously choking everyone if that counts
Lidg is one that did not last as long as I would have liked. Led to to buy the extreme version, but that one loses the luminous qualities that made me love the original
Green Irish Tweed - must have got a dodgy batch

There are quite a few because I have dry skin. I really should try the unscented lotion trick, but I usually either don't leave enough time to lotion up or I forget. I would have to get the lotion into my routine. However, there are frags that are EDP'S or powerhouses that will hold on with there own fortitude. Mitsouko edp is one frag that has it's own great longevity and sillage and will last 12+ hours on me!
I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!
Dia Pour Homme
D & G - The One (How can an Amber fragrance not last?!)
Creed - Virgin Island Water
Creed - Original Cologne
Chanel Eau de Cologne
Clinique - Happy for Men
Verrsace - Eau Fraiche
Kenneth Cole - Reaction
Creed - Bois de Cedrat
Love the smell of all of them... just wish they lasted a bit longer...
Bvlgari Pour Homme. I adore this one, but it barely lasts a couple of hours, even when using the shower gel, after shave balm and body lotion!
My second choice would be D & G - The One, although I do seem to get greater longevity out of this than some other people.
My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:
Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Essenza de Zegna, Zegna Essenze Amber Gold, Armani Privé Sable Or, Armani Privé Vétiver Babylone, Mancera Cedrat Bois, Acqua di Giò Profumo, Amouage Dia Man, L'Artisan Explosions d’Emotions: Amour Nocturne, Zegna Essenze Italian Bergamot/Acqua di Bergamotto
I sampled Heeley's Esprit du Tigre today. For all of the 10 minutes I could smell it on it, I was enamored.
Definitely D&G The one for me as well.
