    Jenson, for me the wearable would be Route du Vetiver, but the Histoires de Parfums 1828 that I'm wearing today is awfully strong. While I don't like 1828 nearly as much as RdV, 1828 might be stronger.

    The wearable at home might be hard for me to pick--I wear just about anything out that I'd wear in. If you had to push me I might say Guerlain's Jardin de Bagatelles, but I don't wear it, I save it for a girlfriend.

    Unwearable strongest would be Joop! Homme. It's very powerful.

    Well, for me it has to be Ambre Sultan (Serge Lutens - how often did I mention that today...?). But I wear it "with proud"! There are no unwearable scents in my collection. Guess why? I don't buy something just for the sake of owning it.

    Everything that get's bought get's worn.

    Wearable category: Antaeus and Black Aoud are a tie.
    Wearable but not in public: Kouros is much better in private.
    Not wearable at all: Jovan Musk for Men. I remember this horror from the 70's being the smell of a slightly deranged tranny-hooker.

    I think that almost any fragrance (save a few!) can be just totally unwearable if not applied correctly! But as someone above wrote, the only one I wouldn't wear either out and about or at home might be Z14... that one hurts me!

    As far as I'm concerned,

    Joop Homme EDT is the strongest, almightiest and most potent, and

    Aramis has the most output, and

    I don't understand the concept of personal not public use, and

    the only not wearable scents are the women's scents much loved around here.

    Furthermore, in any side by side comparison, the much weaker Joop Homme Aftershave splash would make mincement of most of the scents nominated in other posts as the most potent.

    Black Aoud sounds pretty scary...sounds like the headless horsemens scent from Sleepy hollow or the scent of some characters from lord of the ring...

    A showdown between Joop! and Photo Lagerfeld. That's pretty intense. (How did your co-workers enjoy it?)

    Potent favorites of mine would have to be Black Aoud and Kouros.

    The only unwearable scents I have tried are:
    -Rive Gauche pour femme. It smells excellent on my wife, so I thought I'd give it a try (I know...). Two sprays of this one under my clothes was enough to give me a panic attack and make me jump in the shower. Honestly, I couldn't wear anything for two days after. Fragrance overdose.

    -Bois de Miel. Just too much. Totally unwearable.
    You are not your perfume.
