    Default Fragrances you love that doesn't last on your skin

    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.

    Have fun!

    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.

    The above, at least most recently. Stays very close to the skin and lasts for 2-3 hours max, shame.

    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

    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.

    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

    I'm pissed at the Creed house and for all the batches they have, witch different juice in every one of them. Some of them are excellent, while some of them are terrible. Why is that so? I don't understand it, at all :/

    I just got done sampling LIDGE, and I'm not impressed with the longevity what so ever. I got 5 hours maximum, which is pretty damn bad for an Extreme version (if they're goal was to amplify the juice) but it's better quality compared to the Original. I get the most awesome mint chocolate out of it!

    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!

    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, Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque, Armani Prive' Nuances,
    Armani Prive' Bois d'Encens, Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud, Essenza de Zegna, Amouage Beloved Man, Fahrenheit Le Parfum, Dior La Collection Couturier Vetiver, and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam.

    I have remarkably good skin. Even Guerlain's Imperiale lasts for good 6-7 hours. Only fragrance that doesn't last is Extract of Limes by Trumper's, but then again, it is literally lime juice and alcohol. It's physically impossible for it to last.

    I've been pretty lucky as far as longevity goes on my skin, but the two that I absolutely love but just can't get more than a couple hours out of are Cartier Declaration Cologne (gotta love that ginger note, so fresh) and Armani Code. I will not buy those simply because of the longevity and projection issues I've faced with them. My roommate is lucky in how well Code matches his body chemistry. Oh well, win some you lose some!

    Chanel Les Exclusifs Eau de Cologne, hands down. I've taken to spraying it on my shirt....much better longevity that way. Beautiful fragrance, nevertheless.

    All Creeds- bummer. Most other frags also- bummer. Im sure it has something to do with over saturation at home because last time i went on vacation I could smell one spray of any frag all day. It was crazy.

    Opus 1870 - Wish I could get more than 4-5hrs out of it. Still a gem, though.

    I'll add Rochas Man. Beautiful gourmand scents, with terrible projection and longevity.
    Also, Havana Vanille / Vanille Absolument by L'Artisan. Also a beautiful gourmandish vanilla scent that sticks to your skin like crazy, with minimal longevity. It's a shame, these scents are amazing.

    Roadster Sport. It smells fantastic. If this would stay, I would make it my signature scent. But it only hangs around for an hour or two.

    The crown perfumery's spiced limes, among many others. I get less than 30 minutes from it, no matter how much I apply. Penhaligon's juniper sling is another, but thankfully over-application helps me get the length I need. Still, I run through my bottles of it pretty fast.
