    Default 18 Fragrnces Shootout!

    Hi all,
    I tested 18 different fragrances -all regularly on sales- to verify the LONGEVITY on paper (mouillettes).
    This is not an absolute proof of quality, but only a pragmatic essay for fragrances.
    Keep in mind the longevity on skin is VERY different from longevity on paper... and longevity is only one of the different aspects in perfume quality.
    Longevity is tested simply by smelling papers.




    Here are the CONTENDERS

    FerreForMen (transparent glass bottle)
    Nuit de l’Homme by Saint Laurent
    Antonio Fusco by Antonio Fusco
    Piazza di Spagna by Roccobarocco
    Cesare Paciotti for Him, by Cesare Paciotti
    Paco Rabanne (small PR logo)
    Hypnose by Lancome
    Oxygene by Lanvin
    Eternity by Calvin Klein
    Arrogance pour Homme, by Arrogance (black box)
    Van Cleef et Arpels pour Homme
    L’Atelier pour Homme, by Roberto Capucci
    Cool Water by Davidoff
    Fred Mello, by Fred Mello
    Eau de Rochas Homme, by Rochas
    XS by Paco Rabanne,
    Lancetti Homme, by Lancetti
    Valentino pour Homme, by Valentino

    RESULTS
    Longevity: LESS than 1 day:

    L’Atelier pour Homme, by Roberto Capucci

    4 to 5 days

    Honorable mention to :

    Unfortunately I'm not familiar with most of those scents.
    On my skin Paco Rabanne lasts as long as Eternity and XS, I guess it's different on paper.

    Did you ask anyone else to smell them as well, in case there were individual factors influencing the result?

    Hypnose is a good one.
