    Default 2-3 hours of heavy/good projections must have fragrances?

    I'm looking for some smooth creations with little to no harshness, i recently got fed up (AGAIN) with multiple summer fragrances that don't project at all, so the Fall will come to rescue haha

    Please give suggestions, you can see my top 10 and some of my fav in order to get the idea what i like.
    1. Dior - Homme/Intense (vintage)

    2.
    Creed - Aventus

    3.
    Amouage - Jubilation XXV

    4.
    Amouage - Reflection Man

    5.
    Dior - Feve Delicious

    6.
    Hermes - Terre d'Hermes

    7.
    Parfums De Marly - Herod

    8.
    Tom Ford - Oud Wood

    9.
    Serge Lutens - Chergui

    10. Lalique - Encre Noire Extreme

    Life's too short for average fragrances.

    Perhaps Dior DHI and Hermes TDH Parfum could be worth (re-) testing and (re-) considering: while the projection and sillage are not just sufficient during the first 2-3 hours and beyond, both fragrances also lack harshness quite perceptibly and know to assert their immense lasting power in a silent, polite understated, but still undisputed, undeniable way

    Smooth and not harsh but with good projection. Does this go together? Anyhow check out:

    Fahrenheit Cologne
    L'Eau Kenzo Intense
    Or maybe some of Acqua di Parma's recent offerings

    In this case, maybe also Guerlain Heritage EDP (or vintage EDT), along with Hermes Voyage Parfum and Boucheron pour Homme EDP (again, along with its limited edition flankers-often to be discounted and by fare not as rare and expensive online, thus providing quite great value and quality for the money) could perhaps also be worthy additions to sampling list, as they all achieve a quite elusive balance between strength and polite, gentlemanly understatement

    Jean-Claude Ellena designed it to be like a "second skin". I find it last for hours though and am glad to own it.

    Based on the top of your list

    By Kilian: Back to Black (above average projection and average longevity on my skin) I never wear DHI anymore. They don't smell alike but fill the same spot in my opinion and I just enjoy B2B more

    Mancera: Cedrat Boise (awesome performance. Draws lots of comparisons to Aventus. While I understand the comparison They are completely different. I find CB to be a bit sweeter, fruitier, and for lack of a better word.....prettier, while Aventus has a dark/mysterious side and is a bit more complex. CB is more Pretty boy Aventus is more bad boy IMHO. "Wouldn't be without either"

    Amouage: Epic Man (you can almost flip my CB/Aventus comparison above by plugging in Jubilation for CB and epic for Aventus. Jubilation is sweeter, fruitier, and for lack of a better word.....prettier. Epic has a dark/mysterious side. Again "Wouldn't be without either"

    Clive Christian: No 1 ( Somewhere a couple of hours into its heart this really takes a similar path as reflection but IMO is even nicer. Certainly not the same but I couldn't imagine one liking Reflection and hating no. 1. Reflections opening is MUCH nicer but no. 1 I find overall better. Price aside this is a remarkable addition you will be proud to own.)

    2 more I love based on your taste:

    Roja Dove: Enigma

    Andy Tauer: L'air Di Desert Marocain

    Best of luck!

    You should check out Ferrari Bright neroli. A good sprays of that gives a good projection and would get you through the Summer and Fall. It's a high quality scent and very uplifting. For the price it's a massive bargain!

    Also, imo Opium pour homme it's a classic masterpiece that performs very well, on me at least.
