Poor Longevity with Diptyque

I've tried out many Diptyque fragrances and really liked Tempo, Tam Dao, and Eau Capitale. Unfortunately, they only last around 3-4 hours on my skin despite being EDP concentration.

I've heard good things about this fragrances lasting 8 hours from some people so I assume I might be getting anosmic to them but I"m not sure.

I have Tempo and 34 Boulevard St. Germain.
Tempo lasts a long time but doesn't project that much, I can smell it for days on my clothes.
34 Boulevard St. Germain is the same but projects a lot more.
At the moment I'm waiting on samples of Eau Rihla and Opsis.

That could very well be the case. How many sprays do you use?

I have no experience with the ones you mention-Eau capitale didn't seem that strong when I tried it in store. Other Diptyques didn't seem to have a lot of longevity, but others do on me (eg Philosykos and Ombre dans l'eau edp)

I tested the Diptyque ones that were around back in the mid-2000s, and saw that - like your experience - they only lasted three or four hours on my wrists/ back of hands. So I haven't bothered with them since. I just figured that was their style of scent, and it didn't suit me.
Cheers,
