As stated Gucci PH 2 and Bulgari PH. I prefer Bulgari but it does have longevity issues.
GPHII as well.
I'll have to try the recommended Bvlgari.
Atelier Cologne Oolang Infini

I'm not even joking about this...Amouage Epic Woman.
Love this cub of Chai Tea.

To me it's this one, I love the stuff and have it in weekly rotation. Great black tea note with spices, woods and a little leather.
Creed Silver Mountain Water
l'Artisan Tea for Two
1 spray of Bvlgari soir has high projection on me for a good 7 hours, i think the bottle i got was extra potent because my tester was not this potent.
14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it
I like Carthusia-IO Capri. Its a light breezy frag. with tea, mint and citrus.
My mom's great. I appreciate her sense of humor, patience and fondness for daytime drinking. :0)
Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Rouge
Perry ellis for men . The bottle that has the belt buckle on it . Nice leather aquad
GPH II or
Creed Silver Mountain Water, but I've never tested the Bvlgari to be fair.
L'Artisan Tea for Two if you can find it, one of my favorites and always in my rotation.
Gucci Pour Homme II is also very good and is quite easy to find.

GPH II- Love it and it lasts a long time on me.

Might have to give Soir a few more tries. I thought I remember getting something funky in there that pushed me away from it.
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
I enjoy the Bvlgaris (Black, Soir, etc) too and CDG Leaves Tea (sadly my sample is empty now :-/ ).
My 2 Favourites are Bulgari PH Extreme and Five O'Clock au Gingembre. Althought Soir is quite good too.
