    Default Colognes you love but they just DON'T LAST

    Burberry London & L'Homme are my picks. Burberry has the greatest opening I've ever smelled but it dies literally an hour later. L'Homme has an opening that blew my mind but it only lasts 2 hours max to me.

    Wonderful fig scent for the eight or so seconds that I can smell it. And yes this is for the parfum as well...

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    The newish Versace Pour Homme Oud Noir smells really good but the longevity is only three hours. Though it's pretty much subdued and close to your skin by hour two. Shame!

    D&G The One. Smells nice when it starts but becomes a faint whisper after a short period of time.

    Recently bought Narciso Rodriguez For Her...like the pink rose and peach scent but unfortunately stop smelling it after an hour ...seems to vanish without a trace from the chest, back of neck and wrists...

    But I suspect that I maybe anosmic to this one perhaps...why because when sprayed in the armpits it seemed to vanish like on other body parts but at night when going to sleep I could get a faint creamy rose and vanillaic aroma wafting from there...

    So confused

    I remember the old Armani Eau Pour Homme---used to have to figuratively bathe in that one to get it to last. Great for a few hrs, then from what I remember, fades away into nothing.

    L'Humaniste (Millesime imperial) if 6--12 hrs needed but if 4-6 needed then initiall sprays would do but if previous need then , definitely need a traveling atomizer to take with you to revamp revive it

    Gucci pour Homme goes on like it's going to be a beast but regretfully fades quite fast on me. CdG Ouarzazate is another I wish lasted longer on me

    ^^^Hahaha! So bad! I mean, I normally have longevity issues with frags, I'm used to that, but usually I can at least smell some weak, hardly recognizable basenotes whereas this one disappears without a trace like it had never been sprayed on. Such a sad story, even sadder the fact that I love it and would buy a fb right away if it lasted at least a bit longer...
