    Default best projection and long lasting fragrance

    Hello to all,i'm new to the fragrance world and my first purchase was dior eau savage eau de toilette,i am very dissapointed of this,it has a very short projection for about 1 hour or so,after 2 hours you can barely feel it and after 4 hours it's gone...the bottle is orginal bought from official store.what fragrance do you recomend that is long lasting and has a good projection so other can smell it after a long time?i am on a budget of let's say 40 euros.

    In this price range you won't find much with great projection and sillage, but you could try looking for Costume National Homme EdP, perhaps 1.7oz bottle will be within your budget. This one is quite strong and long lasting.

    If you can stretch your budget and want something truly thermonuclear in strength - look no further than Amouage Interlude Man. One spray can last 24+ hours. Two sprays will clear the room.

    One Man Show Gold by Jacques Bogart is a veritable cheapie with extraordinary longevity and projection that you should be able to find easily. By the way, welcome to you!

    He says he wants to spend round about 40€ and you suggest a fragrance, that costs 185€ in European countries...

    Yes. Hence I prefaced that with "If you can stretch your budget and want something truly thermonuclear in strength..." - which is what the OP was asking for when he started this thread looking for "best projection and long lasting fragrance." "Best" in this case requires a little more than 40€ to get what he wants.

    Hi there, I'm also new to this site. I love projection monsters and I don't think you can go past a bottle of Joop Homme. It's a beast and you should be able to get it under 40 euros. Ladies love it but it gets mixed reviews as it's quite synthetic. Le Male is also a contender but not sure if that's in your budget. You should get around 10 to 12 hours with either of those. Hope that helps.

    Hmm not sure what quite synthetic means....how many of the recomandations are synthetic i thought most of the ingredients are natural..le male is also synthetic?

    With that budget, nothing can beat Midnight in Paris (EDP Concentration) bought at an online discounter. If dark fragrances aren't your thing consider Guerlain Homme Intense, L'Eau d'Issey and Bleu de Chanel.

    So glad that you listed GHI. I recently tested Guerlain Homme and was hoping for an amp'd up version.

    Just my 2 cents as a gal who knows the "olbie" men's scents: The original spray Lagerfeld is one you'd enjoy trying, and in your price range. Also, Dior eau Noir is a special one, but likely too expensive.
    I will hold myself to a standard of GRACE, not perfection.
