    Default Need advice on a Long lasting frangrance VERY similar to Gucci Pour Homme II 2

    Hi all, I recently bought a 3.3oz of Gucci pour homme ii 2 and I just cannot seem to get it to last no matter how many sprays I wear. I know that most colognes as well as this are EU de toilette which is not long lasting and I really don't have the money for parfum either. I was wondering if you guys know of a nice frangrancw that is almost identical or at the very least extremely similar to gphII BUT lasts. I understand thatfor eu de toilette my options are limited but give me some ideas

    I agree with this. Make sure you get HiM and not the regular HM. Two different fragrances.

    +1 on the HiM. I was astounded at the resemblance; plus, it comes in EDP strength if I'm not mistaken.

    I think HiM is inferior though. I could definitely tell the difference in quality between the two even though they have similar qualities.

    Perhaps also YSL M7 Fresh

    agreed 100% -- Hanae Mori HiM in the EdP is quite good and has great longevity as well as being quite similar to GPH II.

    Thank you ALL you guys! I love Gucci pour homme 2 but it does NOT I repeat does not stay on my for over 30 mins lol. Actually I can't smell it even if I put 15 plus sprays on. And no its not overwhelming to the people around me when I put that on. They can still only Smell it is they are literally clinging next to me. Why must this fragrance be so wonderful but its scentjust does not come out?! Ugh

    You may be spraying it too much, actually, and fall victim to the dreaded olfactory fatigue. Try fewer sprays, and try spraying your clothes for better longevity.

    If that still fails, definitely try Hanae Mori HiM EDP, it's very very close to GpH II and it lasts all day and then some. I own both of these and for most intents and purposes, they are pretty much interchangeable.

    I have only been into fragrances for 7 months and Gucci pour homme 2 is one of my favorites . I also have the same problem with it not lasting very long . Im going to give Hanae Mori HiM a try as well.

    YeAh I've tried spraying it on my clothing as well, but I honestly can't smell it almost at all. my friends all say the same thing too. So sad its such an amazing fragrance but just does not smell much at all! I'm ordering some Him right now and I'll see what its like. I actually ended up returning the gphII because of it not being a strong scent. So sad because I liked it so much but I'm going to look if I can find a bottle for cheaper online since it was $85 at ulta. I see I can get it on ebay and amazon for about $55 so I may do that. But I'll let you know how the him works out first once it arrives

    Just received my HIM hanae Mori in the mail this morning and I LOVE IT. my advice to anyone in the same situation as me, BUY THIS! it really is so identical to Gucci pour homme ii I honestly can't tell the difference except that it lasts much longer and is a little more potent on the prohectio. A plus plus hanae mori

    I have never smelt, let alone heard of that before. Is that new?

    Why do I not see the connection here? My friend gave me a case pack of samples from when HiM launched, I'll have to revisit.
    I don't have longevity issues with gph2 though.
