    Default Acqua di Parma Colonia VS Dior Eau Sauvage edt. Best longevity?

    Acqua di Parma Colonia and Dior Eau Sauvage edt. Both are fresh and light, but which one has better sillage and longevity?

    Vintage Eau Sauvage > ADP Colonia

    Current vs Current...

    ADP Colonia > Eau Sauvage

    Neither are longevity/silage monsters given their structure, so reapplying after 4-6 hours is probably your best bet.

    Personally, I’d take vintage Capucci Pour Homme over both. I find it “brighter,” “happier” and I get better performance than either of the two others mentioned.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    I don't recall enough about Eau Sauvage's performance to comment, but I do know that longevity is an issue with Colonia - and it's frustrating, because I love the scent. Now you've brought it up i'll give it another go when I get chance.

    Agree with all of the above, particularly the Capucci part.

    While I do not layer as a practice, I've done this twice with good results - Shiseido Bravas after which I've used Capucci PH or Eau de Rochas pour Homme. Eau de Rochas PH by itself is as good as Capucci also, but the performance goes low based on the temperature.

    Best thing to do is just order small decants and try 'em out. Do to a lot of factors, sillage and longevity will vary from person to person.

    Agreeing with others that in current form acqua di Parma lasts longer, but neither is a longevity monster.

    Neither lasts more then 2 hours on me. I would love for AdP come out with a stronger concentration but for me it's not worth bothering with unfortunately.

    Acqua di parma usually doesnt have anything that is very dense and long lasting.
    And I dont like Sauvage to know if it is long lasting.

    Agree with the consensus that the current Acqua di Parma lasts longer than current Eau Sauvage.

    For me - the Dior.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Fairly equal, perhaps with a slight advantage of Eau Sauvage EDT even in its current formulation
