    Generally any powerhouse masculine fragrance from the 80's.

    Or, any recent woody-orientals.

    PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!

    First, you might change your terminology.

    On this site, there are certain meanings for the word "cologne." I take it that you are using this term as a generalisation for any fragrance.

    There are colognes (as in eau de Cologne), which are the weakest, followed by eau de toilettes, then eau de parfums, and the strongest are the pure perfumes (also known as extraits.)

    I would start with Aramis. This is inexpensive and a very enjoyable floral leather.

    Firstly skip colognes if you want long lasting scents. Why in gods name Americans call all colognes and Eau de toilette for 'COLOGNES' is beyond me

    Get Eau de toilette or Eau de parfum. Skip colognes !!

    Longest lasting on me:

    KOUROS
    OPIUM
    DAVIDOFF ORIGINAL
    LE MALE
    AZZARO PH
    OSCAR DE LA RENTA POUR LUI ORIGINAL
    ARRAN BAY CITRUS
    DIOR FAHRENHEIT
    YSL 'YSL' CONCENTRAT
    VAN CLEEF & ARPEL PH
    GUERLAIN L'INSTANT EXTREME
    DOLCE & GABBANA PH
    VERSACE THE DREAMER
    ANTAEUS
    HAVANA ORIGINAL

    Try these, they last 10-12-14 hours on me using 5-8 sprays

    Agreed. Plus remember Eau de Cologne as a fragrance type as well as a concentration

    Ohhh well, guess this is the same reason Americans call 'American Rugby' for Football - ignorance & arrogance in great mixture

    Not all of them, just the masculine EdC- and EdT-strength fragrances, and I think that's because the mainstream market was traditionally dominated by eaux de cologne and EdC-strength fragrances.

    Habit Rouge EdC lasts longer for me than many EdT formulations of other scents. As Grottola noted above, some of the "oriental" fragrances can be tenacious. If you don't like them, it can become a bit of an endurance match.

    In addition to the powerhouses, Grey Flannel is a good choice if you want strong projection in addition to good longevity.
