    I don't know many mainstream florals, so I'm not of much help. From the few I know I'd suggest Bulgari Jasmin Noir. It's not a sillage monster but it does project nicely.

    Estee Lauder's Beautiful is the first to come to mind. EL is known for quality, affordable and long-lasting fragrances with wonderful sillage, and Beautiful has been a best-selling grand floral bouquet for years. Private Collection is another of EL's opulent florals with projection and longevity. YSL's Paris is very bold and long-lasting, but you really have to like roses and carnation to enjoy it - I do. Guerlain's Insolence is a potent bouquet of sweet violets and roses - again, very long-lasting and lots of sillage. Givenchy's Ysatis is a wonderully rich and somewhat tropical floral with a chypre-y vibe - another favorite of mine. Gucci Rush is also a good candidate, but it's my understanding that you need to move quickly as it's being discontinued.

    Givenchy's Amarige and Dior's J'adore aren't my personal favorites, but they are big, long-lasting florals with unapologetic sillage so they should make your list. And I guess I should mention L'Instant de Guerlain - it's my favorite floral-oriental ever for its gorgeous, velvety magnolia, but the honey/amber/vanilla base makes it too sweet and heady for some.

    There are of course a lot more, but I'd say give these a sniff and you'll be off to a good start. You should be able to find all of these at any perfume counter for under $70, or so.

    i agree with Evangeline. the first thing I thought of was Paris edp. It's so "big" I wear it around my ankles, if I didn't I couldn't take it.

    Another one is FRACAS (tuberose scents in general tend to be sillage monsters).

    Diva is a great big floral chypre & all of these are reasonably priced at perfume online shops.

    I would say the top of the list for me are:

    YSL Paris in the eau de toilette. It packs as much punch as an EDP. (I have never tried the EDP.)

    Guerlain Insolence EDT (VERY loud and long-lasting.)

    Don....several edt's were suggested. Most of the fragrances suggested as edp's, do come in edt versions. Paris, Beautiful, Insolence, Diva, to name but a few.
