    Default Looking for a fresh long lasting scent

    Just what the title says, I am looking for opinions on a nice fresh scent that will project and last all day. A hint of warmth isnt bad either. Currently wearing Missoni parfum pour homme, just want something more.

    Odd, 4-5 sprays of Bleu De Chanel EDT last all day on my shirt 2017 batch code. Versace Pour Homme you can easily over spray 6-8 sprays and won’t offend and will make up for performance. It’s highly discounted now so no worries with over spraying.

    The only one that satisfies all these demanding criteria is Kouros.

    Take a look at the sillage and duration bars here, and read through a couple of reviews and search how many times 'fresh' appears in the reviews.

    Good luck, 'cause you really need it.

    A mall with a kiosk in the hallway is your best bet to test Kouros, IMO. Even the smaller kiosks tend to have it, and it's rarely faked.

    I sometimes see it in Perfumania as well.

    One more question, how do i know of my cologne is still projecting and people can smell it? I sprayed my Missoni approximately 6 or 7 hours ago and all throughout the day i get random whiffs of it, but when i raise my shirt and smell it directly i cant really smell anything.

    Dior Homme Eau. Lasts longer than BdC EDT and smells better imo.

    Probably right, but you never know. The new stuff has been neutered enough that it has the best of the old (the classic form and clean freshness) but lacks some of the dirty bits. It's a lot safer than vintage, IMO!

    Asking other people is smart. Also avoid ANY sprays around your neck, upper arms, or upper chest for a wear, and see how it performs. It's easier to get fatigued if there are any sprays up high on you. If you only spray the back of your hands and avoid washing the backs, you can get a good sense over a day, just how long a scent lasts on your skin. You will get many good whiffs over the day as your hands move closer and further from your nose.

    Dior Sauvage EdT and Bond no. 9 Scent of Peace for Him both have wicked performance like that, but they are ambrox bombs that you may not like. Check them out for sure.

    I'm not sure, I've never been to Dillards. However, sometimes it is found for sale at airports - with testers available.

    You ask them. That is the best way to get an idea.

    I would also recommend Sauvage EdT by Dior. I find the perfume to be awful, but it is a fresh perfume and it lasts reasonably well - longer than the Chanels and Versaces. You might like it.

    Completely see your point, but I thought Kouros fit the description to a T, and let's face it - it isn't that expensive relatively and a lot of people actually wear it. I don't expect the OP to like it, but one never knows. I have trouble finding good fresh fragrances that actually last, because most fresh fragrances are either not interesting, or too synthetic, and most do not last that long. Also, he specifically wanted something with very good sillage and projection after 7 hours, which is even harder to find. It depends a lot on circumstances as well - weather, activity. You wear 5 sprays of a fresh fragrance in July in New York and take the subway a few times, go to a shop, have lunch at a restaurant and walk for thirty minutes in the city in the afternoon - I can give it to you in writing that 95% of fragrances (fresh or not) in the western market will not last beyond five hours, and definitely not project after seven hours - no matter how many Basenoters get eight hours of 'performance' out of those from 3 sprays. Of course it's different if one is always in air conditioned rooms.

    Just to be clear, Eau Sauvage EdT smells sophisticated, is fresh and unfortunately doesn't last. I was referring to Sauvage EdT.

    A fresh cheapie that actually had good duration was St. Bart's for Men, and it is very casual. You might want to try that.
