    Default Montale Amouage Kurkdijan Longevities?

    what are peoples respective ranking of each brand? I have to apply my amouages but in general I didn't find the longevities on the montale ouds to be that good. Kurkdijan has given me the best of all those brands

    For myself, the following order is true in descending.

    - Montale
    - Amouage
    - MFK

    Very true. Take Amouage for example. Some of their fragrance has decent longevity but not mind blowing. Then you get a beast like Interlude which can keep pumping fumes for 24 hours!! It does depend upon the perfume itself rather than the brand. Saying that.....All 3 you mention rank well into the top half of the table. The only exception to this rule could be Montale as most of their stuff is nuclear.

    I get excellent longevity from my Montales and Kurkdjians.

    It varies - I have monster performers from both MFK and Montale yet there are others from the same houses that are pretty timid

    Generally, most of my Amouage bottles are big on performance

    Some Amouage scents last over 24 hours. I have no idea how long Interlude Man lasts on skin because it's still going when I take a shower the next day. I think some Amouage and Montale scents are actually too strong. Montale's Blue Amber lasted 24 hours plus for me too. And MFK makes some performance monsters too. Absolu Pour Le Soir is a beast. Some of his ouds are beasts too. Grand Soir lasts for ages. His lighter/fresher scents don't last as long, though most still have great performance for me. Aqua Celestia lasts a surprisingly long time for me - well over 12 hours from 3 sprays - though after a few hours it starts to wear closer to the skin.

    I'd rank these three houses, strictly in terms of longevity, as follows:

    Amouage
    Montale
    MFK

    But ranking them in terms of longevity is missing the point of what makes each house special. It's like ranking food by how heavy the meal is rather than how good it tastes.

    In terms of my favorites though, I'd rank these three houses:

    MFK
    Amouage
    Montale

    I love Amouage, but if I had to limit myself to only one house, MFK would be it without a doubt. Aqua Universalis, APOM, Lumiere Noire, Petit Matin... such great stuff, and it's so very wearable. Aqua Celestia is seriously underrated in the fragrance community.

    ditto.....but really depends on which fragrance, as they all vary in performance, but most from these 3 houses are very acceptable IMO.

    Agreed, I've never had any issues with most, I'd probably say MFK is the most potent. I get amazing performance with MFK Oud. It literally fills the entire house when I spray.
