What are the Best Long-Lasting Perfumes for Men in 2022?

Long Lasting Perfumes For Men

A man’s fragrance is a defining decision that needs to be considered carefully. A bold perfume reflects the character of a man. And although the right scent can be difficult to find, when it’s found, it typically sticks around for years to come.

One of the major complaints from men in regards to perfumes is that they do not last as long as they are supposed to. This is because many perfumes are actually eau de toilette; a more diluted form of eau de perfume.

Eau de perfumes are typically the longest-lasting perfumes. However, the selection of these perfumes for men is significantly smaller than that of women. This is pretty typical for many personal care products. Men tend to have fewer items to choose from. That’s just life.

For this guide, we surveyed the best of the best and handpicked the highest quality, longest lasting men’s perfumes to meet all sorts of tastes and fragrance preferences.

We’ve included products in a wide range of prices, ensuring that you’ll find something just right for your budget. Ready to take your manly fragrance to the next level? Read on for our picks for the top 10 best long lasting perfumes for men in 2022.

Im done w/ toliette. Some are good, most are scented water & alcohol, good to spray on clothes, that’s all.

Did my research, always thought perfum was for girls, & cologne was for guys, didn’t know it was all about concentration.

Spend an hour in ULTA smelling their men’s selection, toliettes & perfums.
Some smelled like pure fruit punch juice, others like fresh laundry detergent.

of their limited selection, my favorite, the ‘neo-oriental’, Bvlgari Man in Black.
what a blend of genuine oils, modern, masculine. Can’t wait to discover more perfums

Thanks for making such an excellent list

Versace Oud Noir is my choice, but far better is ORIGINAL INDIAN OUD CONCENTRATE …

David - November 28, 2018

Thank for sharing useful tips

Mouser - March 2, 2019

I miss the days any if not most fine men’s fragrances were available in a splash. While you had to be careful not to waste, they seemed, to me at least, stronger and longer lasting.

william - March 13, 2019

Surprised there is no tom ford here.

Sylvester - March 14, 2019

I had been looking for a scent which is appropriate for casual and formal wear. Quite pleasantly surprised to see such a comprehensive and coherent list of perfumes. I am looking forward to trying some of the perfumes on this list. Hopefully I will not regret it.
Thanks for the fantastic list of perfumes.

Taylor - May 9, 2019

Hanae Mori is absolutely terrible. I would suggest Blue De Chanel for a good everyday long last cologne, as well as the Yves Saint Laurent ‘L’Homme Intense’ one of my personal favorites but my absolute favorite for everyday is Montblanc Legend. I worked at Nordstrom in mens apparel for 6 years if that helps anyone with a fragrance selection.

Leo Passion - July 3, 2019

Thanks for the list. Creed Aventus is the best

Salih - July 18, 2019

I would like use the opportunity to remind about Fahrenheit by Christian Dior. one of my favorite, the smell attracts opposite sex intensively

basit - July 22, 2019


Pattrisia Bolton - July 22, 2019

What a list! I wish I could buy them all at a time! But I will go for L’Homme this time.

Tobias - August 22, 2019

Really you must be kidding to put YSL L’homme on this list. It’s a great scent (actually is my signature scent), BUT it has such a weak performance. It simply doesn’t last. I’d say it’s one of the weakest mid-range fragrances ever.
So while it is a classic and a must in many top-10 lists, it has nothing to do in THIS list.

khare - September 9, 2019

I think baccarat rouge 540 extrait de parfum should be on this list

Sajjad - December 17, 2019

Add Holborn perfume in this list..

Thelonious - January 23, 2020

Look for Romeo Gigli.

Phil Walker - March 9, 2020

I was looking out for long-lasting perfumes and I came across your article and after reading this article I ordered for the Creed Aventus and I really loved the perfume as it was super long-lasting and had an amazing fragrance I am really happy with the choice I made and thankful to you for sharing this article, it was really helpful for me.

Patrick Schneider - April 6, 2020

Versace-The Dreamer….smell it, and you’ll understand why.

Arun Sharma - June 4, 2020

Thank you so much for the list, I gifted “Christian Dior” and he loved it. The fragrance is long lasting.
