Rinosaur, welcome to Basenotes! Great screen name.
I'll leave the recommendations to others and just point out that sillage (a measure of how many blocks away neighbors' dogs start upright and look quizzical, agonized or enraptured when you walk out the front door; as volume is to sound so sillage is to perfume). Sillage does obviously vary from scent to scent but it also depends upon how much you've applied, where you put it, and how long you've had it on. I recommend light application on you upper chest for close encounters like what you're describing. You'll still be able to smell it but the stranger in the front seat will get it only subliminally until they are suddenly compelled to bury their nose in your chest screaming, "I have to have you now! In the Diamond Lane of this very bridge! Oh my God, when you picked me up I assumed you were ready for a commitment!"
Also, applying earlier so that the top notes have time to calm down before you chance an encounter like the one above is a good idea.
