I know this has been covered before but my question differs slightly in some regards. As the title suggests, I'm looking for a really strong scent. When I say strong, I mean somewhere in the ballpark of Sung Homme in terms of strength of aura, sillage, and longevity. I need something that if I use two sprays it'll be enough for eternity.
In addition, forget niche scents and stick to the ones that are mostly easy to find (IE department stores, perfumania, etc)
I'm pretty much open to most scents, but stay away from the more controversial ones (IE Kouros...PS, how is the sillage on Kouros Body?)
Finally, I'm not looking for anything over-the-top distinctive (IE one man show) but something that's still great.
Thanks for the help!

Opium pour Homme EdP (Yves Saint Laurent) - the EdT even more so
Terre d'Hermès (Hermès) - two full sprays is enough

I am curious, why is sillage the most important factor here? Wouldn't you rather wear a scent that you love, even if it's not a sillage monster?
I can understand if you are just looking for suggestions to check out but still, it seems an odd question, like "which CD is mastered the loudest?"

Another is L'Antimatiere. Smells like almost nothing on your skin but leaves huge clouds of sillage. You need to be moving to detect the scent though. If you are stationary, despite being surrounded by the scent, you won't notice it (due to the way the chemicals in it work - they are too large to be constantly detected and are only noticeable when first hitting the olfactory bulb, hence why movement is needed).

A*Men, that's sillage monster Juice right there. I'm curious too though...why exactly do you need a sillage monster?
