    Default Club de Nuit Intense longevity

    Hello everyone!! After reading a lot about this fragrance which as you all know resembles Aventus I decided to purchase one. I've read that in most of users it lasts many hours (8-12) with strong projections but on me I can barely notice it after 3 or 4 hours tops. People tell me they can smell it on me but only close to their noses. I don't know if they are smelling it actually. I've got a 2016 batch made in France (I read there are two different versions) and I also read that the 2017 batches might be weak ( not so sure about that since there are few comments on this issue). Anyway my bottle is from France (knowing that there are bottles made in United Emirates) and from 2016. Can anybody help me with this issue? I'm not sure if it is my skin or the number of sprays I wear (usually 2 - 4) or olfative fatigue. Im wearing it in cold weather if this helps (maybe heat increases projection and longevity reactivating the scent). Thanks in advance!!

    I don't get 8-12 hours from ANYTHING. Now, I like CDNI a lot, but even with that I only get a few hours. And that's in warm weather. I suspect when the weather gets cold here, the performance will not be too great. Like many frags.
    Spray some CDNI on fabric, and you will find it lasts for many hours. But on fabric it does not project as it does from skin.
    Relatively speaking, it is still one of my more potent frags. But more than a few hours on skin? No, not with me.

    I like it a lot also. What I did is a test to check if the fragrance was still there despite of the fact I wasn't able to smell anything. I boiled water and when the steam started I got my neck (the area of the fragrance) close to the steam and the fragrance was definitely there. And it started projecting. This was after 8 hours (soft but it was there). Only with one spray. I will try to wear two sprays on the same spot to see if I that increases longevity. I suspect it must be better using it during hot weather.

    I've never tried CDNI before but my friends, who live in the hot-humid country, say it does pretty well in longevity and performance. Hope this helps.

    Unlike the smooth base in Aventus, the base of CDNI uses a lot of a chemical called norlimbanol. It's supposed to smell like wood, but it's kind of harsh (actually, I find it extremely harsh). It's often used in affordable fragrances because it's cheap and it lasts for ages. So if you're only getting a few hours, you're experiencing olfactory fatigue.

    You are probably experiencing olfactory. CDNI last at least 8 hours on my skin.

    It lasts about 6 hours on me, but I will usually re-apply at lunch.

    I have a May 2016 batch that's made in France and is quite strong. I get 4 to 8 hours of longevity before it becomes a skin scent. I can smell it on my skin into the next day. It depends on the weather. I find that in hot weather it seems to disappear more quickly. I also occasionally layer it with Demeter Pineapple cologne.

    Anotther questions is what happened to it? The usual online retailers and Ebay sellers in the USA don't have it and those that do are charging about $10 more for it. Is it being reformulated or did Armaf listen to those who said the Feb. 2017 was weak and scrapped production until more juice was cooked.

    Well I've heard and read many users are complaining about performance on 2017 bottles of Club de Nuit Intense but so far are only comments and is not massive I guess. I think in hit weather the fragrance should increase longevity and so you are able to sense the smell for longer maybe

    A friend came to my house recently.
    I said to him you're wearing CDNI aren't you.
    He said yeah how you know?
    I didn't say a word, I just left the room and came back with a sample of the Aventus horsey juice.
    And like a friendly doctor I prescribed him the pineapple tonic and said these words
    "Spray this 3 times, once a day for one week and you will be cured of all that ails you."
    ....and he lived happily ever after for the rest of his days.

    I get at least 10 hours and I only use 1 spray. The first time I wore it I did 2 sprays one on each wrist and a few coworkers said they smell my cologne everywhere. When I use more than 1 spray I make sure its not on exposed skin, usually on the lower chest. Lately I do 1 CDNI spray and 1 Laventure on the shirt and im good to go.

    I read somewhere that it was recently reformulated and has a grey cap now instead of black. If urs has a black cap you should be fine with 1-2 sprays

    Lucky you! What do you mean by black cap? You mean the sprayer or the tip of it? (The one you take off to spray)

    Forgetting about the longevity for the time being, what happened to Armaf's shipments? Many retailers are out of stock online including Amazon. Even Craze is tough to find and those that do have CDNI Men are charging quite a bit more than it cost last month. I emailed Sterling Parfum a few days ago and never heard from them.

    That's right. They're out of stock it seems. It's been reformulated or something?! I was reading in fragrantica that new bottles have the silver tag (?). Help!
