    "tingling, prickly sharp":

    Acier Aluminium (well, at first it singes the nose-hairs, but it softens considerably on the drydown)
    Rive Gauche
    Cypres Musc
    Kouros

    #1. Bond no 9 - Silver Factory and Creed SMW do sharp tingling things to my nose. So much so that I can't enjoy them. Actually, I get this from a lot of Creeds, but none to the degree of SMW.

    #2. Search the forum for "powerhouse", pick a winner and over apply. ;-)

    The loudest fragrance I can think of is Black Aoud.

    Yep. 8-10 sprays should do the trick.

    +1 Kouros and L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme, neither of which I care for, both of which match that description. Are you sure you didn't try Body Kouros though? Kouros usually knocks people out! You may also wanna consider Giorgio by Giorgio Beverly Hills. Very very sharp strong opening with huge projection. Quorum too for that matter..

    "TINGLING PRICKY, SHARP " I think is helpful for this detective work, but please try to at least narrow it down to a category...aquatic...spicy...flowery...sweet -- even if it is in your own words. We need more clues before taking an educated guess.

    Luckily, math is on your side. MOST people are going to wear what they find in MOST retail stores. Also, sales associates are pretty good at "sizing up" a potential customer, so giving us demographic information may help. For example, if he was young, perhaps they pushed an aquatic.

    Vetiver is a note that strikes me as prickly or sharp. Could be Guerlain's Vetiver.

    It was probably LeMale. And I suspect LeMale because the people that I smell LeMale on seem to overspray it to where the sillage is very strong, and you smell them moments before they're within touching distance.

    Try Fahrenheit 32.Its ,,pricking" my nose so much that I gived the bottle away to my son.The sillage is great and it has nothing to do with the original.It fits in your description.Just try it!
