Sick of perfumes just fading away in seconds, please tell me the good, strong, bold long lasting ones so I can finally find one!!!

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle - I know people say the Lidl one is the same but a) it so so isn't and b) the real stuff lasts for ten times longer!

Poison! I think it's awful but different strokes and all that... Literally does not come off.

ElspethFlashman Tue 09-Aug-16 16:06:09

Oh God, Jean Paul Gaultier. That stuff lingers for days!

And Dior Hypnotic Poison too.

Angel. Hangs around you and stays in every room you go into.

Tom Ford - the litte ultra expensive bottles.

scent will last longer on oily skin and less well on dry skin.
you could try moisturising your skin before applying and see if that helps.

Gucci Rush seems to last forever!

I love Jean Paul Gautier and Alien (but everyone I seem to know is wearing it)
Bought hypnotic poison after seeing a recommendation on here. all three last well.

Davidoff cool water

YSL black opium, I sprayed some one a top once and could smell it even after I had washed the top in the washing machine with Daz.

Doje Tue 09-Aug-16 16:20:49

Agree with PP's - Coco Mademoiselle.

ShatnersBassoon Tue 09-Aug-16 16:21:15

Cabotine de Gres.

Alien by Thierry Mugler

I hated it but by Christ,it had staying power. 2 days and much washing and it lingered.

Agree with all of these.

Wearing an eau de parfum (rather than the eau de toilette of the same scent) can make a huge difference in terms of strength and lasting power.

L'heure bleue (Guerlain) can still smell it on my grandmothers scarf - she's been dead 20 years.

It's one of my favourites too.

Lancome Poeme - in a good way.

Sarah Jessica Parker "Lovely". Tried it in a perfume shop. Hated it and colleagues complained about the reek. Couldn't get rid of it - I was perfumed down to the bone.
