Guys any recommendation for a long lasting perfume. I dont care or mind the notes as long as it is long lasting.

Try Paco Rabanne Invictus, lasted a good 12 hours for me when I was standing in the sun for those 12 hours sweating like a pig for Global Citizen Mumbai. Wore the perfume and left home at 10:00 AM and a girl still asked me which perfume and smiled at 11:00 PM

Yes this would be available at any of the big malls, and you can try it there. You could also try Amazon for the actual purchase, since prices are sometimes lower online.

While longevity is one factor, it is always ideal to consider few other factors, which are projection power, suitability for occasion, and your like for the scent.

Some long-lasting frags are:
YSL Kouros - powerhouse, long-lasting, may not be suitable for office, is a frag from the 80s, can be cloying if over-applied
Paco Rabanne 1 Million - long-lasting, sweet scent

What's the weather like where you plan to use your fragrance? And I am guessing you are looking for a signature scent, something you can where everywhere, is that right?

I don't like sprays.

At about 70 rupees, I find this as a very nice Deo. No irritation on the skin.
The fragrance is nice and it lasts a couple of hours.

Nothing beats L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme by Issey Miyake. This stuff is really good. You can also check out Versace Pour Homme. Both smell great!

Le Male has very good longevity and sillage. It may not be suitable for office/enclosed spaces. Don't know about Dior Homme.

L'eau D'Issey Pour Homme is a great frag suitable for office and hot summer outdoors.

This is a woody aquatic frag. The top is citrusy, middle spicy/floral, and the base woody.

Top notes consists of yuzu (a Japanese citrus fruit), mandarin orange, lemon, and bergamot orange. Middle notes are nutmeg, cinnamon, blue lotus, and base notes are cedar, sandalwood, and tobacco.

As I said, this is a woody aquatic frag and not a true-blue aquatic, ozonic, oceanic, or salty frag, but it has an element of aqua to it that gives it a fresh, clean, and uplifting vibe. This has good projection and good longevity of 7-8 hours on my skin, but the sillage is average. I use this frag as a day-to-day office frag.

Surely a good suggestion, which the original poster can give a try.

Try Blue. Its cool and smells well. It should cost somewhere around Rs. 800 at any reputed outlet in Malls.

Thanks, but it is just too strong for my liking. Had got it from Dubai.

I prefer mild tones but long lasting ones.

Can anyone suggest a good online store to get reliable/original perfumes at a decent price. I was looking at Snapdeal, Amazon and Flipkart. There's no major malls in my city and buying directly at a store is difficult.
I've already shortlisted perfumes I am interested in.
