    Default im looking for great sillage and light scent

    anyone know a scent that has nuclear sillage, im talking about stuff that will be known across the room, yet has a very light and non offensive smell to it? also a scent that has a very strong aroma, yet very close to the skin?

    Across the room but also close to the skin???

    Well a non-oriental (IMO) is Paco Rabanne XS that has amazing sillage and is not very heavy.

    Geir maybe? has good sillage/staying power, but is (at least in my opinion) very light and refreshing...

    The only one i can think of right now is Dior Homme. *It's not heavy, i often catch subtle whiffs of it, and people tend to notice it 10 feet away, so there ya go, maybe also John Varvatos, Ultraviolet Man and Allure. *Other light scents that have some sillage are Mat Male, 212, Bvlgari Pour Homme or Extreme and CDG Kyoto.
    Current top 5:
    1. Puredistance M
    2. Naomi Goodsir Bois d'Ascese
    3. Amouage Fate Man
    4. Creed Spice & Wood
    5. Bond 9 Harrods Oud

    I think Chrome does that. I smell it so strongly allllllll day and it is still light and clean like Geir. That is the first thing that came to my mind. Most orientals are heavy on top of being ultra stong.

    What he said. But you have to go light with the Geir or there is a good chance you'll become nauseous. This is one of the few which gets stronger as the day goes on.

    Possibly Acqua di Parma - Colonia.
    Some have said that Bulgari Pour Homme actually has quite a bit of siliage, but you might not notice it on your skin.

    Machineo, Samouri by Alain Delon is your baby. Light, but incredible sillage.

    Light in the sense of background, airy, something people sniff but wonder what it is or could be. Incredible sillage as in, well, an olfactory siren like the screech on a fire truck running down the highway. Sillage to the hazmat level, even, I'd say. Makes da laydeez pucker up it's so strong.
    That girl, that bottle, that mattress and me.

    I think Geir will do the trick!

    Geir and Chrome would both work.

    I read this as you asking for two recommendations, no? One light yet trailing, another strong, yet close to the skin.

    I'll second Geir for light yet wafting, also Dior Homme.

    For more intense but discrete......I am stumped.
