After further review, it seems that the three I've worn most are:
My wife suspected as much and I confirmed it after scanning the 'drobe. And yes, they're probably my three favorite scents.

TdH and Declaration, though I'm also burning through samples of AdP Colonia and Colonia Assoluta, and Annick Goutal Eau de Sud.
To sweat is unavoidable. To smell of it either. So the frag couldn't fight against it without being overwhelming. The frag would preferably connect to that very bodily odor and try to transform it into something more interesting at least, if not pleasent. The technique of transforming a particular odor by connecting an other to it is well known in parfumery. Why not deal with body odors? That is the very utility core of perfumery isn't it?
<edit-1> To give an example: Givenchy Insense is besides it's qualiy as being a "floral for men" (it isn't, it is a aldehydic for men, not "floral") a scent that connects to male sweat. It doesn't turn sour and never peaks out as an overlay to ordinary stink. It takes the ride from fresh green towards salted cheesy smells without any dissonance. Anyone sniffing around would take the idea of someone taking overt care of himself, instead of a weak sister trying to hide underneath some aromachemicals ...
<edit-2> Givenchy III, a chypre directed against the wallets of females connects to - garlic! Just try as an experiment to eat as much of that "lilly of the kitchen" as possible e/g in butter applied to grapevine snails aka escargots, parsley ... . Luca Turin once mentioned that someone else mentioned the reason for chypres success being food. Again, connecting to B.O. is a purpose in traditional European perfumery. Your ELDOrado for sensual colognes could be the phalanx of well done original chypres and orientals instead of maligned "fresh" scents.
<edit-3 and out, promised> Valentino, Ocean Rain is a cologne that has a bite. Wearing that would for sure recall lucky days a the beach, hot days, eye watering smells of decomposing algae, and -no- silly ozone-something disney-fresh TV-adventures with Flipper. Being really at the shore makes a difference an intelligent human will argue anytime in the back of its mind. It connects to sweat too, perfectly.
