The best long lasting perfumes for men

31st July 2022 | Rachel

Oriental fragrance lingers on the skin usually longer than occidental fragrances, however there are some perfumes for men that last long and are perfect for a date night for example.

What kind of perfume stays longer?

Perfume (or Parfum in French) contains the most oil and usually is the most expensive with the longest staying power. The next options are eau de parfum and eau de toilette, eau de toilette being the most suitable for everyday application.

What is the longest lasting scent?

The longest-lasting perfumes and colognes usually have an amber scent. The longest-lasting notes after that are oriental, woodsy, and musk notes such as patchouli, sandalwood, resin, tuberose, and vetiver.

Which Notes Last the Longest?

Fragrances are usually structured to have three layers: the top, middle, and base notes. These layers will determine what you smell when you first spray the fragrance on your skin and then what lingers throughout your day.

What Makes a Fragrance Last Long?

If you’ve experimented with different fragrances, you’ve probably discovered that some of them seem to last longer than others. There are several factors that contribute to the length of time a scent stays in the air or on your skin once you’ve sprayed it.

Concentration. The more concentrated a scent is, the more powerful its smell will be and of course the longer it will last.
Fragrance Notes. As explained before, fragrances are made of 3 layers including the base notes which are the ones that stay longer on the kin. (Some cheap fragrances skip the base notes, which can explain how short-lived they are). The top notes are what you smell when you first spray a cologne, the mid notes are the heart of the fragrance, and the base notes linger long after the other notes have faded.
Skin Chemistry. Believe it or not, dry skin does not have the necessary oils to distribute the scent evenly, and therefore a cologne that smells great on someone else, can fall flat on your skin. One way to control this is to apply some moisturizer before spraying your cologne.

We will review below some men’s perfumes that have base notes with a strong scent and that will usually linger on your skin for quite a long time.

Bleu de Chanel

Long lasting perfumes: Bleu de Chanel

The longevity of Bleu de Chanel is amazing. You can expect it to last anywhere from two to four hours if you wear a light application such as the Eau de Toilette, and up to eight hours if you wear the perfume or Eau de Parfum. Bear in mind that this scent is very strong so it’s important not to apply too much perfume on your skin.

Bleu de Chanel doesn’t last very long when you wear the Eau de Toilette version, especially in the wintertime. Indeed the citruses tend to fade away from the skin quite quickly making this version of the perfume last a couple of hours.

Versace pour Homme

Its base notes are amber notes, oud, musk and tonka bean.

Pour Homme gives you a pretty straightforward clean citrus smell and is very pleasing. It isn’t super long lasting (around 5 hours) but that is usually adequate enough for most daily purposes.

Bvlgari Man In Black

Bvlgari Man In Black by Bvlgari is a Amber Floral fragrance for men. … It lasts a very long time and smells like shaving cream/leather/powder, cinnamon.

Calvin Klein CK One

CK one is a unisex perfume for those who embrace diversity. Instantly memorable, this citrus green scent pairs green tea with rose and amber for a youthful and fresh, clean scent and definitely unisex fragrance.
