Perfume that smells like a stronger version of Eau Dynamisante

That's it pretty much, I'm trying to find a perfume that smells like a stronger version of Eau Dynamisante, I love it, but wears off too quickly even if I layer it with the shower gel. I've just not come across anything else like it.

Any ideas?

This blogger suggest Eau Sauvage. Diorella has been reformulated but is difficult to get hold of. You should find it and be able to try it at every men's department. Steer clear of the 'parfum' concentarion.

I love Eau Sauvage and wear it every now and then - women have worn it since it was launched. There is a big family of related herby colognes, including Annick Goutal's Eau du Sud and L'eau de l'Artisan. If you like heavier and woodier stuff, Acqua di Parma is worth a try. Fleeting duration is a family characteristic of citrus colognes, they are very volatile top notes and meant for splashing, you can get long wearing time only with chemical trickery.

Agree eau sauvage. I was convinced for ages that h was using my ED

Really?! Brilliant. I love Eau Dynamisante but wouldn't fork out £££ when it wears off after an hour.

Another vote for eau savage.

Yes agree with all . I wear Eau Dynamisamte for every day and Annick Goutal Eau du Sud when I want something stronger.
Also like and have often worn Eau Sauvage and like smell of but haven't bought Dior's Escale a Portofino.

If you like ES, google Eau Sauvage Rene Gruau - you are in for a treat <nostalgic sigh> And sorry about shocking spelling and grammar today - multitasking, not very successfully

Roger & Gallet's Jean Marie Farina perfume smells a lot like Eau Dynamisante. M&S do it, and it was 20% off yesterday.

Diorella also very nice, as noted above.

ooh great suggestions thank you!

I am heading off to have a sniff. Not even thought of mens which is daft as I used to wear mens fendi and loved that. Have just ordered a bottle of the Roger & Gallet's Jean Marie Farin anyway as really like all their things. Thanks for all the help.

Eau Sauvage and Diorella are great suggestions. The original O de Lancôme is also quite citrussy but more powdery ... Not the horrible fruity incarnations.

polyhymnia Thu 06-Feb-14 10:32:06

Yes, O de Lancôme used to be my everyday scent before I started on Eau Dynamisante.

Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino is also pretty similar (though much more expensive!)

It's 40 degrees here today and I am wearing Hermes Concentre D'orange Verte. Hermes do great citrus scents.

polyhymnia Fri 07-Feb-14 10:45:21

Ye, that Hermes one is nice. Can never decide what I think about the Tom Ford one - some lovely citrus notes but also has some sweet ones that are not for me. Hate any sweetness in a perfume.

It's annoying isn't it? I love the Clarins Eau D but no, it doesn't last. I asked at Clarins and they said that's the whole idea of it ... It's a light, multi-spray "swoosh" of uplifting spray. It doesn't therefore, have the power to 'develop'.

Eliza22 Fri 07-Feb-14 11:42:39

Oh, should say that I do do, is layer it. I use the deodorant spray and the amazing (but again expensive) Eau D body lotion and as a summer scent, it does last longer. smile
