Recently treated myself to a bottle of this, but the smell seems to wear off very quickly.

Anybody else found this ?

phone the store and ask how long the smell should last, sometimes there might just be a dud bottle....normally the smell should last for 4 hours at jo malone lasted for about 6 hours

Is it that you can't smell it yourself? I use Jo Malone too and used it recently going out one night and then a friend hugged me the following day and commented on it - I couldn't smell it at all at that stage but she still noticed it.

Thats a really good idea, thanks Barbie.

6 hours wow ... its the white mint and jasmine one, I've just sprayed some on now and I'm timing it.

I think I'll be lucky to get 3 hours sad.

I had thought that too Buda, but DS who is my style guru said he couldnt smell it either.

i worked for the company that owns jo malone wink call up the london store and just ask how long it should last....Tell them how disappointed you are that after an hour the smell fades and you wont recommend them....see how quickly they try to do something to help you wink

Let me know how you get on, if you need to the number yell

Hmmm. Disappointing.

Called the London number and they transferred me to customer support.

Apparantly they can't say how long a fragrance should last, apparantly everyone is different and it depends on the interaction my natural body oils have on the fragrance hmm

A couple of hours is acceptable in their opinion hmm

Anyway, I can return it for a full refund if I want, although I have used a good third of it grin

Using the 'disappointed' 'wont recommend or buy again' lines didnt seem to have much effect !

Hey ho ! I think I'll probably keep it, its very nice for the time that it lasts.

But I wont be buying again as I'm obviously not naturally compatible with it !

Thanks for the advice though.

Most colognes ( or is it perfume you have?) last only a couple of hours. If you have got the perfume it should last longer.
