The Best Fragrances that Will Last All Day
Is there anything worse than spraying on a perfume or aftershave, only for its smell to disappear within hours? More often than not, you spray on your favourite fragrance to last all day or all evening, not just an hour or two. Whether it’s for work, date night or just for everyday wear, it can make a big difference investing in a perfume or aftershave that has longevity.
Here we take a look at some of the most popular perfumes and aftershaves that can last for hours, making sure you smell your best all day.
1 Million by Paco Rabanne is one of the world’s best-selling aftershaves, with an instantly-recognisable fragrance that is great for any occasion, particularly in the evening. Confident and addictive, Paco Rabanne 1 Million is crafted from fresh notes of grapefruit, mint and mandarin before moving into a bold heart of rose and cinnamon.
Finishing on leather and woody notes, Paco Rabanne 1 Million aftershave is strong and sensual. What’s more, it’s estimated to last around 6 hours on your skin.
Launched in 2011, the eponymous Jimmy Choo perfume is an ultra-feminine, modern and luminous fragrance. Opening with citrus notes of orange and pear, it has an exotic heart of tea rose and tiger orchid before finishing on a sweet and sensual base of toffee and patchouli.
Described as a chypre fruity fragrance, this Jimmy Choo perfume is great for everyday wear and can last up to 8 hours.
Dior Sauvage has become somewhat of a cult favourite, with a fresh and intoxicating scent that has been incredibly popular since its release a few years ago. The aftershave is intense yet smooth, and has won multiple awards over the years.
Opening with pepper and bergamot, Dior Sauvage has a unique heart of geranium, lavender, pepper and vetiver to create its distinct woody scent. A few sprays of this should last around 7 hours, perfect for dinner followed by drinks.
Alien was originally launched in 2005 yet smells as modern as a new release. Housed in its iconic purple bottle, Thierry Mugler Alien is a floral woody fragrance that can be worn for any number of occasions, day or night.
Opening with jasmine, Alien has a woody heart of cashmere before finishing on a base of amber. The simplicity of its ingredients adds to the charm of this fragrance, with an effortlessly rich and feminine scent. The best thing about Alien is you need only a small amount to last you all day, but just in case you can’t get enough, the bottle comes in a refillable version to keep you topped up!
While Creed aftershave may be on the expensive side, it’s for good reason. With a whole host of fascinating notes combined in one bottle, Creed Aventus is a rich and iconic aftershave. Opening with fruity notes of apple, blackcurrant and pineapple, it has a floral heart of rose and jasmine, before finishing on a musky base of moss and vanilla.
Some say Creed aftershave can last up to 10 hours, which is incredibly impressive and handy if you’ve got a long day ahead!
