So, what is your longest lasting aftershave scent? Which one can you apply after your early morning shave, and still smell when you get home for dinner?

My study is complete. Not scientific, and not a very large sample size—but I reviewed all 11 of my aftershaves. (I think Claus might have me beat there)

#1 Lozione Dopo Barba by Santa Maria Novella.

#2 Floris Elite.

Pretty close to a tie, to be honest.

Since we're not supposed to have a scent where I work, I'm limited to weekends for these aftershaves. I tend to use D. H. Harris Pink aftershave, or Aqua Di Rose by Santa Maria Novella during the week. The scent is pretty much gone by the time I arrive at work.

So, which aftershave in your collection has the longest lasting scent?

This has always been a bit of a mystery to me - I might get an appreciative 'you smell nice' from my partner but I can't detect any remaining scent trail at all. Others I can smell hours later and they register not a jot with her. I tend to use a complimentary Edt or parfum and therefore don't necessarily want my a/s to persist. It's not always the case though - if you're doing not much around the house at the weekend I'm not going to break out the Creed or Hermes. Here are some that do seem to persist for me -

Old school -

Another vote for Alt Innsbruck
Tabac
Floid Black label

More modern -

Fine Platinum
Wickham's Citrus Musk or Russian Leather
OSP Orange Patchouli or Lemon Cedarwood.

Have fun finding out what works for you.

Yes, Xpec should be on my list. It's probably #3, but might be #2.  I forgot about it.  Just found it at the back of one of the drawers.  The scent lasts all day, especially when used with their shaving cream.

Ahhhhh yes, D.R. Harris Marlborough.  One of my favourite winter scents.  I use it along with their shaving cream.  But, for me, the scent is  gone by noon.

Another vote for PAA, especially Cavendish, Sk8shop, Ciderhouse 5 and The Beach. All day. And since I soak my Selleck-style mustache in the stuff, even longer.

How long does it last for you? I've been looking for AdP scented aftershaves that's long lasting. I have several here that vanishes within 30 minutes if not 5.

Alt Innsbruck is not an after shave.


Some may use it as one, but it's an EDC with an actual EDT strength.


I own it and use it for what it was intended for, worn as a perfume.


Now you can use what ever you want for an after shave - feel free to do it, but does not change the fact, that Alt Innsbruck is a fragrance and not an after shave.

clubman special reserve
vintage avon wild country
apply at 530 am and you will still smell them at noon of the next day albeit at about 15-20% strength.
In fact I cut special reserve with witch hazel and it is still pretty strong.I stopped at a fast food restaurant about an hour after application one morning and the lady working the counter who was taking my order suddenly looked at me and asked what was I wearing.I told her and she murmured something about her boyfriend needing to acquire some........

and the overlooked coachman,it will be apparent til you shower that night.

By far, Elsha splash.  I will smell that at least 6 hours after I use it.  The leather base note will stick to me forever.
