I apply it on the underarms. Mixed with just 2 drops of water.

Be very cautious of the quantity of Javadhu. I apply even lesser than what tramway has shown and it works alright for me.
A little bit extra and my sister commented that I smell like an agarbatti. In the metro a girl started discussing with her bf about how this smell reminded her of something.. blah blah... It definitely wasn't a compliment.

I ditched "chemical" deos forever, since I got this. Natural, priced at Rs30. Lasts through the day. Applied right, it does a perfect job of just "masking" the sweaty smell. The good scent will be there really close to where you apply . I am now life long user of this.

Is it in powder OR liquid form? Would this be available in B'lore?

Managed to grab a small 'dabba' for 15/- from a shop near a temple here. I am impressed. The only problem is, your palm smells almost all day (because of rubbing it initially) but other body parts still manage 4-5 hours.

Been careful with the quantity.

It's powder. I was told that I need to mix the power with water in your palm and then rub it on your body.

Doubt whether this'll be available in Bangy, you may check in shops near temple where pooja items are sold.

Like swiftnfurious mentioned, should be available in shops near temples.

Here we get it at a simple grocery store which sells south indian products - pooja items and assorted eatables and snacks - all specialties from Chennai, Tn etc. Tramway mentioned it is a TN product.

The Burberry London EDT that I bought lasts a good 5-6 hours, very mild till about 10 hours. I just LOVE the notes, its the perfect replacement for Jacques Bogart's Silver Scent (the only perfume on which I was complimented more than 10 times by different people).

However, I'd still want to know if there's a perfume that lasts even longer, like the whole day?

EDIT: I like woody/leatherish fragrances so something which has these as base notes. Spicy & Musk is something that I can't tolerate.

All, please suggest a strong aqua fragrance which can last for 8-9hrs.

Thanks,

Try Davidoff Cool waters or Bvlgari Aqva
Love these two, they are awesome to say the least good longetivity too.
Rest is dependent on the moolah you're willing to spend on either/or/both

Aquatic scents generally are not strong or long-lasting relatively speaking.

Popular aquatics to name a few:

Aqua Di Geo
Bvlgari Aqva Pour Homme
Kenzo Pour Homme
Davidoff Cool Water
CK Eternity

Slightly OT: Can some one please suggest a good aftershave which lasts couple of hours (4-6 hours would be awesome) with musk\wood undertones?

You could try Issey Miyake Nuit. Its fairly lasting, and has musky tones. It might suit your requirements. I however prefer using the Issey Miyake Sport. Its an unusual fragrance, and not very long lasting, but really love the notes.

Hi Guys,

As most in this thread I am also fond of good fragrances. My daily wear use to be Versace Pour Homme which got somewhat citrus notes but since last few days I am getting headaches whenever i use perfumes. I am not sure whether its a medical issue or something else. I tried changing and used Dravidoff cool water but still same issue.

So my question is does any of you also face same problem of Headache from perfumes? if yes then how do you avoid it? Can you please recommend any mild one, I like citrus, flowery notes.

For citrusy/flowery scent that is mild and long-lasting, you may try Issey Miyake Laeu D'Issey Pour Homme - classic version.
