I've said it before and I might just say it again, has anyone else found that CDG smells don;t last more than about half an hour? They're great fragrances but I'm certain that by mid-morning there's not a trace left on me. Are some longer lasting than others?

I've got Man 2 as well as the Monocle x CDG Hinoki and Laurel ones.

I have all 3 of the Monocle series - all three are not the best in terms of duration.
I have tried 2 and WONDERWOOD which like you said dont last two minutes! All EDT.
Same with my new AquaDi Parma Essenza, this is after shave lotion.
The only true "perfume" i have had is Black Afgano by Nasomatto - this actually lasts Days on me.

Will the same aftershave smell differently on different men?

Yes, because each man’s body chemistry and skin type is a little different. The logic is this: fragrance molecules are oil-soluble, so the oilier the skin, the slower the fragrance release and the longer the scent will last.

Men with oily skins should keep away from heavy, oriental notes. Choose light, crisp fragrances: Citrus and Green notes or the Fresh/Crisp interpretations of Florals, Orientals, Woody notes or Aromatic Fougère fragrances.

Men with a dry skin will probably need a more potent, richer fragrance to hold the notes. Choose any Rich interpretations from the Fragrance Manual or select from the Soft Oriental, Oriental or Woody Oriental families.

Generally, men with blond hair and blue eyes will tend to have dry skin. The darker the skin, the browner the eyes, the more likely a man’s skin will be oily, the longer it will hold a fragrance.


From ere…..

CDG is a mixed bag for me. 2 is average. Play Green is worse than average. Wonderwood is rubbish. Standard is good. Kyoto and Avignon are good. Patchouli is unbelievable (can smell it on clothes weeks later) but it is a strong smell anyway.

You get the parfum or eau de toilette Jords? The latter you have to pour half the bottle over yourself to be able to smell it 10mins later.

So true. Smells great but utterly pointless as it's gone when you leave the house.

Was hoping the parfum would hit the sales somewhere but doesn't look like it.

I've noticed that when CDG releases a new scent many brand new bottles end up on ebay and go for under retail. I think CDG give a bunch of free bottles to bloggers/influential to get the word out.
