    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...

    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.

    ^^^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...

    It's a shame, because these are two of my favorite fragrances but I'm lucky to get 2 hours out of them. Tom Ford for Men and Versace Pour Homme are in the 4-5 hour range and that to me is acceptable. I'm surprised to see Aventus and Grey Vetiver get a mention; those are two I have to be careful not to overspray. I get a good 7+ hours from each.

    Paul Smith for Men (the green bottle stuff). I've always liked this one, but it just doesn't last. Three hours max. Fortunately it's cheap in the UK, so I buy big bottles and apply liberally.

  38. #38

    Default Re: Colognes you love but they just DON'T LAST

    Most colognes last quite well on my skin - in fact, MI seems to be a beast in terms of longevity for me. There are a few that don't last - Allure Homme Edition Blanche comes to mind, as did Carthusia Mediterraneo, and pre-reformulation (woodhue box) Eau Sauvage also had similar issues.

    Also of note: If you like the smell of D&G The One but want a richer, longer-lasting version, march into any Express and pick up a bottle of Express Reserve in addition to another 1MX.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    2) Back to Black - By Kilian
    3) M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL
    4) Aventus - Creed
    5) John Varvatos Vintage

    My mission statement: "I am not afraid to keep on living - I am not afraid to walk this world alone."

    +1 on L'Humaniste. I'll add Lomani AB Silver . These are colognes that I'll spray on after I get home from work as they'll only last me 4-5 hrs. And that's with a liberal 5 sprays around the neck area.

    Gucci Pour Homme II is very nice, but yeah -- longevity REALLY bites. I refused to buy it for that reason, even though I had a deal at the time.
    Creed's Green Irish Tweed fell too short on longevity to buy, and a small decant from a friend of Millesime Imperial performed much like Maurer+Wirtz 4711. 4711 has terrible longevity but it is so cheap and pleasant smelling that I just use it as an aftershave.

    Chanel's Allure Edition Blanche has a great fresh aroma, but after 30 mins it turned into a skin scent.

    I don't really care enough for Egoiste Platinum to buy a bottle, but even if I did enjoy it more I wouldn't buy... because it also fades to a skin scent too soon.

    Cristobal Balenciaga Ho Hang Club has weak sillage, fading to a skin scent after about 1~2 hours, but it's a beautiful fragrance and worth re-applying.

    Not on me. I love the smell but the edp disappears about as fast as the edt.

    Also, Acqua di Parma's Colonia, Intensa and Essenza. Great smell, terrible longevity.

    Creed MI lasts a long time, but very close to the skin.
    Same with Creed Himalaya.
    GIT lasts a long time for me and projects very well.
    Gucci PH1 dies out in under an hour.
