    Default Your strongest fragrance - projection & sillage?

    I'm sure there's other polls posted and I did a search and found some similar posts, but were outdated. Since 2006 I've sampled about 480 different frags and found some that were my power hitters. I'm looking for those fragrances that fit that class without longevity being a factor, but does help I would like to know your choices. Multiple selections are allowed. If not on the list, please share that.

    Thanks,
    Jack

    In your set, hard to beat the Montales for sheer power.

    If we include attars, then also Tribute can project like crazy. Nonetheless, the most powerful frag I've ever smelled was the demonic Complex by Boadicea. Like being dipped in a tannery. Unwearable and scary.

    Amouage, Interlude Man. Two sprays from a sample vial is beastly on me, lasting 24 hours and ending up on my t-shirt and the button down worn over it for days even though I sprayed directly on skin, and the scent definitely projects. That's 2 sprays from a sample vial sprayer with 1 to the chest and 1 on my back. It's not even from an actual bottle sprayer! Wow.

    Montale BA rules & will win the poll IMO.

    I have very dry skin & good parfums last abt half the time on me compared to any others. But BA is a monster 12+hrs. Other worthy mentions are almost all the other Montale's / Amouage's (mainly the attar's) / Lapidus PH / Malle's MR or POAL / surprisingly Knize 10 / Amen & Le Male - all fall in the 6-10 hr category...

    I'm surprised that zero people so far have mentioned A*Men. That scent is #1 on my list from my collection when it comes to projection and sillage... any more than 1 spray of A*Men on me will choke a rhino.

    Honorable mentions go to M7 and New York, though both are weaker than A*Men on me (still, don't go over 2 spritzes on either).

    I voted cor Black Aoud. I love it and it xoes not fail!

    With that said, I once sprayed three sprays of Fleur du Male and went out to a gay nightclub. It may be the only time people turned and stared at me because of my fragrance. I have to admit choking myself out! I still sort of like the smell but in very small doses.

    Weird. New York is my favorite from the list, but I've never thought of it as a power scent. In fact, I always found it a rather subtle yet distinct chypre.

    Wearing Olive + Pear today I've realized that for the first 3 to 4 hours this may be my strongest projecting fragrance, followed by Aventus, Norne, and LDDM.
