Since this is only an eau de cologne, I thought I'd have to reapply this fragrance after putting on 2 sprays in the morning, but it was still projecting after a full day of use! Not only that, but this kind of scent DNA is an all-time favorite of mine since it smells like you just use a really amazing body wash, so it doesn't come off as trying too hard to be cool at school. If you want a fragrance that subtly boosts your maturity and hygiene, then you'll have to give Colonia Club a try! The dry-down doesn't smell much different from when you first apply it, but I honestly paid nearly no attention to the base notes. This fragrance is all about the strong-striking freshness that's diluted enough to be used in an office environment. That being said, the base notes added a little extra oomph of masculinity. For this reason, I'd say that it could ideally be used for date nights in the summer. If I could get a date, that's what I'd do with it.
