Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille lasts forever.
Thread: This is really irritating me!
I can't seem to find a scent that lasts longer than 2 hours! I've tried Aventus which lasts about an hour and smells like lemon pledge cooked in a skillet on high. Tuscan leather lasted a bit longer at 2 hours, but I don't like how it smells like chocolate (not a huge fan of gourmands)
The only one I've really liked so far is Rochas Man because I get around 11 hours with it, and I love how fresh and fruity it smells. Anyone else irate with the lack of longevity beasts that smell decent? I've been told Fresco is a good one, so I'll need to check that out.
Anyone 'aware' of some good ones? Need help on this
Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille lasts forever.
Boucheron Homme Jaipur EDP perhaps?
I can confirm, I get 12+ hours from my Fresco but it might be a bit smoky for my liking. I have yet to try Aventus but I think I will stick with Fresco since you don't get great performance.
Have you tried D&G the One? My buddy swears by it and he always smells good.
I have the same problem with Aventoos as well. My favorite cologne The One lasts forever. I know a guy whose uncle helped make it and apparently it's called that because it lasts for one whole day. The more you know
The One is gone in an hour...
THanks guys, Yea I've tried The One. That one is potent! It always lasts into the next day for me. Will be picking up a bottle of this soon.jpg
How is this possible that TV doesn't last for you and The One till the next day?
Rochas Man smells fruity to you?
Tuscan Leather has chocolate for you?
When you say the scents do not last long on you, is it that you cannot smell the scent after a few hours, or others cannot smell the scent on you?
I have a friend that makes the same comments as you. He spritzes 10 sprays on himself of strong fragrances like A*Men, and he says that he cannot smell it. Yet everyone in a 2 mile radius of him gets choked by the cloud of fragrance around him. Their is something broken inside his nose.
I'd test DHI, YSL La Nuit Parfum, TDH Parfum for longevity (for me and to my nose, their longevity was more than enough, yet they're still not to be bought without prior testing, depending on chemistry, the actual longevity on the wearer and a few other factors like these).
What type of bodywash do you use Xerbia? I hear that the Axe ones can make your scents last longer. Ex, Dark temptation to go with the chocolate note you get from Tuscan Leather
You could also try oiling your skin before applying, maybe jojoba oil on your neck before application. I swear I read that here somewhere before
Interlude Man by Amouage. Ho-Lee-Mo-Lee. That stuff sticks around a full 24 hours, and it smells fantastic.
L'Air du Desert Marocain by Tauer. I get at least 18 hours from it.
On the cheaper side:
L'eau D'Issey summer 2013. I sprayed a card with it a few days ago and it still smells so strong, though I can't speak to the longevity on skin since I only tested it once.
L'Occitane, Eau des Baux. Excellent longevity, though it's more of a fall/winter/night kind of scent.
Hanae Mori, H.M. I get excellent longevity from it, and it's a compliment magnet.
You should try YSL Kouros, better if an earlier (vintage) version
I'm hoping he isn't planning on taking his grandmother to cage fight... again...
I believe you are having olfactory fatigue. WHERE exactly are you spraying the perfume? I suggest that you apply it farther away from the nose. The best place is the chest, under the shirt. Try it out, and tell me if it worked.

----- People laugh at me because I'm different.... I laugh at them because they're all the same -----
Sounds like to me you need to go put some gasoline in some atomizers and start wearing that. If you can't smell Aventus, TV, or Tuscan Leather, you have some real issues going on.
I have also found that I get more Longevity and sillage from Fresco than Aventus. Musc Ravageur as the guy on top recommended is a must buy. Easily in my top 5.
Man, what's with all the trolls on Basenotes lately?
If Aventus only lasts you an hour and you want it to last twelve, you could use the same dosage twelve times on an hourly basis. It's scientifically proven to work.
10 sprays of Lapidus Pour Homme should do the job.
So I sampled Fresco today and I love it. It's been lasting a long time too.
I also smelled Jaguar Vision but I didn't care for it because it's nearly identical to Aventus.
Hang on. You own FOUR DIFFERENT BATCHES OF AVENTUS, including the X02 and K04 batches, which seem like polar opposites to me (I've smelled both. One is sharp pineapple and the other muted pineapple and heavy smoke), and you think Jaguar Vision smells nearly identical? And you love Fresco?
Stop feeding the trolls...
Musc Ravageur is very citrusy, and powdery. Women LOVE it.
Xerbia is trolling???
Well that's just great, what am I going to do with my case of Axe Dark Temptation bodywash and litre bottle of Fresco that I just ordered ?
I'll have to start doing decants on ebay.
Wtf why is everyone saying I'm trolling? Not a troll serious

The one gentleman lasts a long time. And projects well. Also Dior homme sport
Like a Facebook rape? (or "frape" to use the technical term)
Oh well, it's my bed time..
Some people really need attention apparently...and on a fragrance forum!? LOL
There have been an odd number of trolls here lately.
