    Extra-strength Montale Black Musk.

    Regular-strength Cuir d'Arabie is pretty close to it.

    Black Afgano is not the powerhouse that most people believe it to be. I owned a bottle. It is a sweet scent. Don't get be wrong, it is a wonderful fragrance, but not the powerhouse that most people believe it to be.

    I second Complex by Boadicea. Poisonous leather with lethal sillage. Hard to think about anything approaching the volume. For wearable stuff, I'd say the Montale.

    The absolute strongest in my collection by far is Lapidus Pour Homme. It is absolutely nuclear and not something to be handled carelessly. I have Joop!, Le Male, Aventus X02, Original Santal, 24 the Fragrance Gold, New Haarlem, Tobacco Vanille, Tuscan Leather, Quorum, and a bunch of other tough guys. They all bow down before Lapidus.

    Top 5:
    1. Axe Kilo
    2. Lectric Shave
    3. Vicks Vapor Rub
    4. Febreze Pour Homme
    5. Preferred Stock

    This tops all suggestions so far, and should come with a haz-mat warning and used with a licence.

    The Lapidus is strong, no doubt, but OMS Gold is the only frag i know that i am very careful applying, and i am a liberal sprayer by default.
