    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.

    5. Preferred Stock

    I seriously doubt that in any side by side comparison lasting either a day or two weeks, that Joop Homme would not wipe the floor against any competitor in the strength department.

    It doesn't matter whether I am in Melbourne or in Madrid, it is the only scent that on a windless day leaves strong vapour trails in buildings and out in the open, where one wonders where the wearer is, as there is no one in sight.

    Same here, i wear 6+ sprays of anything, Kouros (6), Joop (9), Fleur du Male (9), Le Male (12) etc.
    When I will use One Man Show Gold im afraid after the second spray, and use 3 sprays only. Its another world of strong fragrances.

    Giorgio For Men has nuclear strength where I had to shower after two sprays as it was just too much, even one spray was too much. Never met a frag more potent than this one.

    From what I've tried:

    The Third Man / Number 3 / Le 3' Homme by Caron - one spray to the forearm, the scent fills the entire room.

    A*Men / Angel Men by Thierry Mugler - no explanation needed

    Animale Animale for Men by Animale Parfums - deceptively strong. Can induce headache if careless with the application.

    Jazz (original/vintage) by Yves Saint Laurent - can smell it before the wearer arrives the destination.

    Somehow I don't find Le Male and Kouros to be that strong... Or maybe it's because I don't really like them. They smell too cheap.

    A close runner up is Basile Uomo.

    I agree with my fellow-basenoters....In order due it's strength. 1. Lapidus Pour homme: None and I mean none and compare to the projection and longevity on this walking dynamite. I sprayed this on this morning at 7:30am and now it's 4:30pm and still going strong. I actually got a compliment this morning weaing it btw. Giorgio by beverly hills: Another great long lasting monster projecting BEAST.....This one actually last as long as Lapidus. One man show Gold edition: Very similiar to Lapidus but not as strong in the longevity. Joop Homme: The new formula is good but I don't think it holds a candle to it's predecessor's. Red by Giorgio: This is another powerhouse that has been dubbed down due to reformulation but still is good and has great projection and longevity.
