    Talking Fragrances with the strongest Performance and tremendous Projection/Longevity

    noticed another thread about "Inexpensive strong fragrances"
    but i wan't to take away that limit and ask the community to give me their STRONGEST performers

    we are talking Le Male and A* Men, Tom Ford etc.
    Stuff that engulfs the room and strangles out any other fragrances.

    Also seen as i have given a couple examples already, I want you to dig deep and find fragrances that are heavy hitters and blast off the skin and last a long time that you know personally and some of us may not know.
    so go for it: Give me your heavy hitters your work horses, your show offs and attention seekers!

    What do you feel is the fragrance with the best performance?

    thanks chaps! George.

    Most Amouages and Histoires de Parfums (at least the few of each I own) have crazy projection and longevity. I'm not allowed to wear 1740 to work ever again.

    Givenchy Play Intense. I sprayed twice in the morning, three hours later a friend asked how much cologne I had sprayed. Needless to say the juice is super strong and not for the faint of heart. If I'm looking for people to notice what I'm wearing, Play Intense is my go-to.

    Had an epic experience with Windsor over the weekend. Put 3 sprays on (one on chest and one each side of neck) an 6:30pm friday night and could still smell it sunday night into monday morning. Thats after 2 showers too. Actually still got whiffs of the eucalyptus until midday monday which is mind blowing . Awesome experience for a first wear. I've gotten 24+ hours out of a few frags (Puredistance, Leather Oud, Le Male) but never 60+

    Montale Black Aoud is some pretty strong stuff, as is Bond's Riverside Drive.

    I think many Montales will be put into this category I.e. Black Aoud.
    Byredo Pulp is pretty beastly and so are some Mancera fragrances, Sand Aoud and The Aoud being two of them specifically. Bogart pour Homme strong as well.

    +1 on the Bogart line. I'll add Blue Amber by Montale. The longevity is insane.

    Costume National 21 lasts for about 2 days on my skin. Stuff is an absolute steal at $60/100ml IMO

    All of the Costume National scents in my wardrobe fall into this category. Excellent quality and not over-priced.

    CDG Wonderwood lasts a very long time on my skin, one small spray on my wrist and I could still smell it a day later after showering & washing my hands more than once.
