    I am fairly obsessed with buying frags that last all day on me...If I spend the money, I want to smell it 5+ hours. Most Montales and Most Bond no 9's fit the bill. NOT that they all smell good, most Bn9's smell awful, but I love New York Amber and I can smell it on my pillow the next day (24hrs longevity) Montale Black Aoud, Dark Aoud, Louban, and Cuir d'Arabie also last long and smell good.

    Joop Homme! .. by a long, looooong way. Even the after shave version blows away any EDT or EDP I've ever tried. And I've tried some of the big hitters mentioned on here such as Aventus, 1 million, Tobacco Vanille.. Joop Homme is an absolute monster. I actually quite like the smell but I'm too embarrassed to wear it in public because it is ruthlessly strong stuff.

    Bijan(vintage) for men is the winner,and everyone here knows that,I think alot of people dont like scent of Bijan,
    vintage Bijan for men has powerfull sillage, long lasting projection quality,after 18 hours later its still projecting as 18 hours ago,I respect everyone opinions,but there is no fragrance in this thread which have long lasting projection quality

    the vintage Bijan for men is a powerhouse fragrance

    I tried alot of really powerfull fragrances and my goal was to find strongest one with all powerfull qualities, and I can recommend you with confidence that
    you can say "my vintage Bijan will punk any frag you have in your arsenal"

    Thanks for telling me what I know rather than asking me. That's very not-rude of you, except for the part about it actually being quite rude. ONE spray of Black Afgano is all it takes to blow a hole in your theory, though I'd rather go with 2 sprays of Interlude Man. My god, that stuff is crazy strong and lasts 24 hours. And, in this case, I'm just talking about 2 sprays from a sample vial which might equal only one from an actual bottle. Still, I don't doubt Black Afgano is stronger.

    You might want to do a search here. You'll find that a lot of men (including straight men, in case that's an issue for you) wear Poison. And they get some pretty excellent feedback from women.

    I will open thread Bijan(vintage) vs Interlude Man vs Black Afgano and we will see,how many people will vote,and which fragrance will be winner
    and
    For some reason, when a men wear something that is stereotypically feminine, that is seen as being weak. It's not right, but that's the way it is

    It was opened in the men's forum but the poll included Black Orchid(marketed as a woman's fragrance), didn't it? Your comments are inappropriate for Basenotes or perhaps anywhere else.

    I'm not sure if you ever smelled Black Afgano......but vintage Bijan is not stronger than that. And that's just one of the top of my head. Speaking in absolutes isn't the wiesest thing, unless you've tried every edition, of ever scent ever created. As far as fragrances for men and women go. My friend, I live in New York City. I only wear men's fragrances, but I have friends who are pretty highly esteemed in the business community (a few in the power set as well) and some of them wear scents commonly thought of as produced for females. It doesn't"make you any less of a man for doing so, it just means that people have different tastes than you do. And that's going to happen your entire life, so you better get used to it now.

    Why bother even replying to this guy(HOVO)? Ignorance should be isolated to be extinguished and letting him get under your skin only provokes more asinine comments from him. Besides, if he hasnt figured out some of the amazing scents marketed towards women that work well on men too, then that leaves more for us right? Not to mention Bijan has to be one of the most repulsive and dated frags I have ever smelled to date.

    Bijan is a monster, but it isn't the most powerful powerhouse. Lapidus, OMS Gold, Bogart PH, Kouros, Enrico Sebastiano, and Giorgio are all stronger to me.

    From a recent purchase: Prada Amber PH Intense.

    Smells great, but you have to take it easy on the trigger. I spritzed on three sprays, and I had to slide down most of the windows in my car, in the middle of February in NY, on a parkway.

    From what I hear, By Kilian Taste of Heaven is pretty potent as well; one well placed spray is all you need.

    I've had several project like a beast sometimes but not others.

    I think Aventus is my overall winner only because it's my most complimented which gives me some indication it's projecting fairly well.

    It's interesting how much skin chemistry has to do with it because even VC&A's Midnight in Paris has nice projection and longevity for me.

    Now my girlfriend's Midnight Poison never ceases to amaze me. Best fragrance purchase I ever made. It lingers in a room for an hour after she's sprayed it twice and I can always smell it after an 8-10 hr. work day. Funny because it's an edt, too.
