That may be true for most aftershaves. However, there are one or two exceptions. For example, I always found Aramis aftershave to be extremely long-lasting, and it didn't need to be re-applied throughout the day at all. I could splash some of it on in the morning and I could still smell it at bedtime. And that was just the aftershave, not the EDT. That was before the new EU regulations came in and before a lot of fragrances started to be re-formulated, though. That is why Aramis was, for me, the best aftershave for longevity. Nothing else came close to it. It even outlasted most other EDTs that I used, so I knew it was good stuff.Longevity isn’t the point of an aftershave lotion. Also, we can get used to our fragrances; thinking that longevity is on the wane when it isn’t.
As I said....then re-formulation came in and ruined a lot of fragrances. They haven't been quite the same since. Bloody EU.
