    Default Dang - Back to Black is long-lasting...

    Yesterday, I applied two spritzes of Back to Black around 1:30 PM after taking my late shower.

    After dinner out, relaxing, a good night's sleep, waking up, getting lunch, and working out, I could still smell Back to Black, right before I finally took my shower for the day. I knew from past experience that A*Men lasts for eons, but I had no idea that Back to Black could last 25 hours as well. For the money I spent on Back to Black, I think I got a pretty darn good bargain.

    Naturally, my SOTD for today is another longevity monster that my mom likes: M7.

    I am always glad to learn of frags that are longevity monsters, as that is a very important consideration to me.
    I'll have to look into this juice more carefully.

    UPDATE: Just researched it a little. Price tag makes it a no go for me

    I have tested it 4 times - LuckyScent sample - used a 2 ml sample.
    I only get 6-8 hours longevity on my skin

    Wish it lasted longer......love it more than Chergui and Tobacco Vanille (I also like TV, Chergui is just too sweet and can only work for me in very cold winter weather)

    You can buy a refill instead of the expensive bottle.

    Exactly. A glass bottle with a good sprayer is not that expensive, so if you can live without the fancy original flacon, the refill is great value

    Regarding the longevity of Back to Black, I got only 4-6 hours out of it. Mind you, the samples I had were vials without sprayers, hence I had to dab it on.

    Yeah, for this one, it's so strong and long lasting, you could even just get by with a handful of samples.

    The honey note has heat longevity. I can't stop smelling my arm when I spray it.

    I own and love this one - agree with OP - this one is a BEAST.

    Or do what I did - buy the travel spray and refills (4x .25 oz for a total of 1 oz) for $145 if you like both the scent and the packaging.

    get grt longevity & projection from all the frags i own from kilian...
    Anyone spending $$$ on the full box / packaging for Kilian's are IMO wasting money...a SA with whom I spent some time discussing abt Kilians, then kept in touch thru emails for a few weeks - when i finally went to buy from her 5*50ml refill of diff kilian frags, she was extremely generous - gave me a 100ml kilian pure oud free on the purchase & abt 15 samples from kilian & another 10-15 samples from other niche houses that she could get her hands on...grt experience & more importantly, grt value for my $$$

    Just bought two refills in Paris, they are much cheaper than in the U.S. B2B, and S2H for roughly $96usd a piece.. I will go back and get Cruel Intentions and maybe one of the Ouds.. Love by kilian..

    Cruel intentions last 24hrs easy on skin and eternity on clothes and although it's not thought of as a crowd pleaser, my lady complimented me on it the last wearing.
