    Here we go again. One man's pain is another man's pleasure. But anyway, you might start by looking at the
    thread that lists the most complimented by females (at the top of the Male discussion Forum). Some of
    these I like, some I don't . You might want to write down any that sound good and try to test them at
    a fragrance shop. I find that a cologne with a musky base will usually last awhile. I like Hugo Boss in
    Motion for it's orangey musk smell. Until you can figure out what type of scent you actually want,though,
    you will get more suggestions then you could possibly need.

    Carven Homme fits the bill. It's economical and excellent for all seasons. An exceptional citric woody.

    Not much lasts long on me.

    Daily as in daytime (i.e. work, casual, etc.):

    -- VETIVER (1961) BY GUERLAIN

    --Tommy Bahama (Tommy Bahama)

    -- L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme (1994) by Issey Miyake

    The above suggestions weighed heavily on daytime appropriate instead of specifically long lasting. Unfortunately, the ones I'm familiar with as having great longevity, were missing the daytime quality. The above also kept in mind your requirement of DAILY meaning nearly every day. Thus, fragrances were chosen that would not smell the same all the time.

    Original Vetiver (Creed) could be tried. It is a favorite of mine and many others. Personally, I get tired of it as an every day scent.

    Like all suggestions, take them as pointers toward further research to narrow down options. Then, sample. Buying blind is very risky.

    Original Vetiver (Creed) could be tried. It is a favorite of mine and many others. Personally, I get tired of it as an every day scent. On me, it's linear for a while, then BAM...wonderful sandalwood dry down.

    Like all suggestions, take them as pointers toward further research (by you) to narrow down options. Then, sample or test a few times*. Buying blind is very risky.

    * If sample vials can not be obtained, I suggest, essentially, go in to the retailer with clean & scent-neutral skin, apply, and leave. Don't confuse your nose with smelling other fragrances on cards or spending too much time inside as it soaks up the atmosphere of the stench of a thousand notes left by the cloud of others spraying.

    Diorre Homme Sport works well, as does its more sophisticated big brother Tabarome Millesime.

    Allure Homme also covers a lot of ground, is inoffensive, and performs well (at least on me) as well.

    Green Irish Tweed, and Aventus are both powerhouses and suitable for everyday wear in my opinion.

    I would also like to mention Bleecker Street by bond no. 9. The dry-down on this one is really nice.

    Could never get into this frag. Smells too much like cherry vicks vapor rub to me but I hear it works better in the summer to which I haven't had a chance to try it.

    Heard great things about MJ legend too but never tried it. Frag bros did a nice comparison of it as it's a clone to a much more expensive niche house, just can't remember which one. Creed maybe? actually New Harlem Bond no 9, not creed.

    Looking for a cologne that projects, lasts, is suited for daily wear and is quality is like trying to find a wife who will work 9 hours a day, come home to cook you dinner and clean the entire house. It's not happening, lol.

    Seriously, maybe Platinum Egoiste,
