Rose Oud By Kilian........ this stuff lasts all day and I hate it !
I think scents shouldnīt be so agressive. Its a kind of egoism obligate people around us to keep breathing our scent even if they wonīt like the smell. I believe scents must be powerful just for me and some inches around me. Scents must have a "half life", they should "die" after some time instead of stay pounding all the time. Itīs great when some hours later all you have in mind is the trace of a delicious scent that remains in your skin. Then, we will be willing for the next great "trip"...soon.
Bogart Furyo +1
Heritage by Guerlain has great sillage and longevity. Exceptional drydown. Beautiful on a man or women.
Original Bijan Women, Giorgio Beverley Hills and most of the 80's cloying mothers.
no fragrance will do such feat as the thread title on my skin 8 hours of close projection though i can do with several frags (tobacco vanille, l'instant extreme, etc.)
My sales thread
Many Bogart scents will destroy nearby cities.
Furyo and Bogart PH spring to mind.
1 Million is is turning into a modern day Joop imho, not only does it project like a bomb but it is common.
CK Euphoria will suffocate babies (despite it being my favorite female scent).
Bijan men, Tom Ford TV, Joop (and Joop is not in a good way) A*men.
Or how about Nasomatto Duro...yup this is some strong stuff that goes out there with just one spray.
Aventus...... but ONLY a certain batch
joop+10 and obsession if you spray more than two
Gucci Envy is one that always knocks my socks off every time I wear it. Very powerful stuff

Providing real data on fragrance projection and sillage! Check it out
Tobacco Vanille has excellent projection on me and medium to above average silage, and I have perfume eating skin.
As others have said nothing. I think people are overstating things in this thread. Ten meters is a large distance, almost a third of an Olympic sized swimming pool, and while I don't doubt there are fragrances which provide ten meters of sillage (a trail) or even projection right out of the bottle I take any claim that they can fill an area with a thirty foot radius after twelve hours of evaporation from only two sprays with a grain of salt. I own and have tried too many of the fragrances listed here to believe that everyone is speaking with a clear head, and from tested and proven results.
Granted I have dry skin and many fragrances don't last long on me, but this doesn't take anything away from those friends have used or which my wife has used. Still, I have some vintage parfums, some Attars and some classic powerhouses and niche fragrances which generally last until washed off, several days longevity, and I have some fragrances which project in a big way, but the fact of the matter is projection declines over a scents life. In order for a fragrance to be projecting ten meters after twelve hours I have to wonder how far was it projecting out of the bottle, and with a mere two sprays?
Sounds like fantasy.
Edit: just to further reinforce my point. Let's consider Le Male and A*Men, both popular fragrances many people here claim have ten meter projection after many hours. These scents are popular in my country, and if this were true you'd think whenever I went to a mall, or walked the city streets or got on a train there'd be someone wearing one of these scents and I'd be floored by their sillage. In fact if this were the case I'd imagine most crowded public spaces would smell of little else. Yet I can say with certainty that this this is absolutely not the case. Occasionally I pick up a whiff of something recognizable and popular like 1 Million or Le Male when I walk by someone on the street, but that's it.

Definitely not 10m, but A*men will project and last quite a bit.
Another vote to Escada pour Homme. One shot to each wrist. My wife smelled it as soon as she came downstairs (I had sprayed it two rooms away). Stayed strong all day...filled the entire first floor of our house.

Are you kidding? Amen is a skin scent :-)
Ok, new york is strong, but ten meters?
+1 Joop! Homme
You guys named so many...
Opium the lady version. A lovely asphyxiating fragrance, very easily overdone.
I like to have people beating their chests, and gasping for breath, as i have a malicious streak
Oud Ispahan has amazing longevity, i put it on at 4 in the afternoon a couple of days ago, and could still smell it at 11 the next morning. It started off innocently enough, and then seemed to grow bigger, bolder, stronger. Ah, lovely stuff.
Miket is absolutely right. In my 50+ years on the planet, I have never smelled anyone's perfume from 30 feet away! I expect it's possible from a fresh and very generous spray, but absolutely not after 12 hours from 2 sprays.Sounds like fantasy.

Not a single one of them will be detectable from 10 metres away, 12 hours after 2 sprays.
Not sure about projection but when it comes to longevity Platinum Egoiste does it for me. Still can smell PE on my wrist after 48 hours and I took a shower twice and still can smell it clearly. This is insane!
Dear lord. Why are you asking? Are you planning to use it as a weapon?
If a fragrance were to project 10m(!) on two sprays for 12 hours, can you imagine how unpleasant it would be to stand next to that person at 5m, 2 hours in!
Why not just spray yourself with tear gas and be done with it.
