    Default Looking for a VERY strong colonge that lasts with projection price range 40-100bucks

    I'm 24 and really liked gucci envy for men when I wore colonge because it was so strong and woodsy and had the best projection Ive ever tried, but since they don't make it anymore and I want to try some new colonges that are also VERY strong. I tried a 2.5oz of creed aventus and I wasn't impressed at all. It doesn't last and its more of a skin scent. I don't care if its woodsy, spicy, or whatever I just want it to project and last also I want it to smell good and get female compliments like gucci envy. What do you guys recommend? Thanks

    Le Male, Joop! Homme and Paco Rabanne 1 Million all have astounding strength and projection. Go and sample, it is the best way to find what you want!

    Buy Dior Homme Intense, female compliments are guaranteed 101 % as well as big sillage & longevity.
    Another good choice but a bit different type would be Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche . Most women love both.

    In mainstream, A* Men has big sillage and longevity. If you want to look into niche, the Montale ouds (like Black Aoud) are woody frags with enormous power.

    Comme Des Garcons Wonderwood is SUPER similar to Gucci Rush, which I realize is NOT the same as ENVY, however, WW has exceptional projection and smells woody (duh) but its one of my faves. well worth a wear!

    Dior Homme Intense or 1 Million... Terre d"Hermes for longevity also.

    As an alternative to 1 Million you can try 212 VIP Men by Carolina Herrera - Similar smelling but better quality

    Thanks for the replies guys but I want to stay away from Le Male since everyone wears that. Also doesn't everyone wear 1 million also? The only one so far that catches my attention would be Dior Homme Intense but are you guys talking about the old version or the refined? I'm in the USA and I can't find it in stores. The only place to buy Dior Homme Intense is strawberry.net I think and thats the refined version that is less strong I heard? Can someone correct me if I am wrong. Also please list more VERY strong colonges so I can have more options thanks again.

    I agree with the already posted fragrances:
    PR One Million, thought I don't care much for the bubblegum vibe I get.
    Le Male, excellent. Not as strong as it was in the past.
    Midnight In Paris, edp. One of my personal favorites.
    Decant of Creed Bois du Portugal. Strong, very beautiful woodsy drydown. I love it.

    Look on Ebay for Dior Homme Intense. They almost always have the vintage formulations of it. You may pay through the nose at times, but I think this scent is worth every penny. I would personally have one amazing frag and pay more for it then to have several to choose from that are only so-so

    As stated previously Midnight in Paris is inexpensive and smells pretty good. Another one stated was Dior Homme Intense. You can't go wrong with either of those bro! Enjoy!

    +1 senore1. Decants of 30ml will be under $100 and would open up your choices a bit.
    I recommend Tobacco Vanille. On a card it lasted over 5 days. And it projects quite well for a long time. I would say you will suffer nasal fatigue before others stop smelling you walk past.

    Midnight in Paris EdP Projection is BEAST MODE, Longevity is BEAST MODE!!! Compliment factor BEAST MODE!!!! My personal favorite fragrance!!!

    A*Men is another great one. Chocolate, Caramel, Vanilla....what female doesn't find that sexy. Longevity is 12+ hours, Projection is good for the first maybe 5 hours and then dies slowly, compliment factor....haven't directly got any compliments from it, not unless a female was all on me and she will say I smell good, not sure maybe this doesn't project as much as I think. Idk

    DHI (reformulation is plenty strong) or Angel Men. I'd go with DHI because it's a little more versatile, weather-wise, and also more unique, since you said popularity/commonness is a concern.

    Also, if your Aventus didn't last and was a skin scent, there is something wrong with your Aventus.

I tried a 2.5oz of creed aventus and I wasn't impressed at all. It doesn't last and its more of a skin scent. I don't care if its woodsy, spicy, or whatever I just want it to project and last also I want it to smell good and get female compliments like gucci envy. What do you guys recommend? Thanks
    As You mentioned Gucci Envy For Men I'd suggest you try the following - Calvin Klein Obsession for men, Hugo Boss No6 aka Bottled, Chanel Allure for men, Chanel Egoiste, Karl Lagerfeld Lagerfeld Classic, Joop! Joop! Homme
