    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 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)!
    My Top '10' : (In no particular order)

    - Dolce & Gabbana: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Paco Rabanne: Pour Homme (vintage)
    - Loewe: Esencia/Pour Homme/Solo/7
    - Davidoff: Leather Blend Edp
    - Dior: Eau Sauvage Parfum

    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 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.

    1- Portrait of A Lady
    2-Guerlain Heritage
    3- Chez Bond
    4- Amouage Dia
    5- New York oud
    6 34 st Germaine boulevard by Diptyque
    7- by killian Pure Oud
    8- coromandel by Chanel
    9- MFK lumiere Noir
    10- Clive Christian X

    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.

    Eau Sauvage leads the way in this department. Gone in two hours.

    Too bad, as this was my grandpa's signature, and I wanted to buy a bottle for memories' sake.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    Current formula of Egoiste doesn't last more than a couple of hours on me unfortunately. Also went to Liberty on Friday with the plan being to buy another bottle of Vettiveru for the Summer but instead, and at twice the price l leave with a 100ml bottle of the very lovely Carthusia 1681. Smells terrific and I like the idea of an incense for the warmer months but so far I am finding it fading astonishingly fast for a EDP!
