    1. Black Aoud Definitely, just wafts all over the place
    2. LDDM: 1 Spray and I'm good
    3. Guerlain SDV, although I do not particularly like the rum note, it projects very nicely.

    My top three for something that's niche and has good sillage and is a favorite of mine:

    Michael Storer - Winter Star ( best sillage and longevity of anything I've tried - and smells nice, too! )
    Ava Luxe - Midnight Violet ( the opposite of a shy violet fragrance )
    Parfum d'Empire - Cuir Ottoman ( Cuir d'Iris and Knize Ten are stronger leathers, but this is my current favorite. )

    Being fickle, my favorites could change tomorrow.

    When it comes to sillage, out of my extensive wardrobe, Paco 1 Million has the most output. As for longevity, it's between Sables, Joop, AMen, Opium EDP, Prada Amber, Jaipur EDP and many more. All of these last between 20-36hours.
    Check out my Fragrance Review Blog

    Wishlist: Byredo Pulp, Creed Aventus, Montale Black Aoud, Original Santal, Dior Jules, Invasion Barbare, Pure Distance M

    Have you ever try Ambre Sultan?

    Black Aoud
    Tuscan Leather
    A-men


    I have been told by my wife that she can really smell Aventus even after I have left the room for quiet a while. I cannot verify for my nose goes dead to it after a few hours, but have been told how great I smell 8-10hrs after application when I no longer detect it.

    Not sure if Creed is considered niche...

    Silver Mountain Water (Creed)
    Windsor (Creed)

    YSL may not be considered niche but the nose behind this one is...

    M7 (YSL) -- 2.5 hours after application

    Amouage's Tribute attar is probably "the" potent I own - both in terms of longevity & projection - if attars are included...

    No favorite's, but these are huge on sillage when i wear them - picking just 3 from the below is impossible - i have never really measured which has more sillage:

    NK Incense
    Amouage Interlude, Epic & Jubilation XXV
    Slumberhouse Jeke, Rume, Vikt, Ore
    Montale - almost all the ones I own are heavy on sillage.
    Malle's POAL, Geranium PM (Carnal Flower - own a sample)
    Tauer's Incense Rose, LDDM
    Matriarch's Blackbird
    Tom Ford Tuscan Leather & TV
    Kilian's Incense Oud & Back 2 Black
    Nasomatto's Black Afgano & Duro
    Mona di Orio's Oud & Cuir

    Figuier by Heeley has the best sillage, the smell is so mesmerizing and I spray it everyday on my bed before going to sleep
