    Winter Star by Michael Storer. I seriously have to "spittle" it from the bottle. A full spray is way too much!

    So far of the around 40 or so fragrances I have tested, there are 2 that stand out

    1. Aventus: Projection - 72.5 inches, Sillage - 33 seconds
    and
    2. Leather Oud: Projection - 66 inches, Sillage - 36 seconds
    I'm liquidating my collection to help fund my site. Please show your support for the FPindex and buy buy buy - Tuscan Leather, Egoiste, Costume National 21, etc!

    For me, the king is Joop! Homme. Tremendous projection and longevity.
    Montale's Red Aoud is a close 2nd.

    I agree - Montales are insanely powerful. It's a toss-up between BA and Cuir d'Arabie for the most overtly powerful fragrance in my collection.

    Brilliant - now I really can't wait for my Slumberhouse sample set to get here. The combination of Pear and Olive sounds so different, and to hear it's a powerhouse? I'm excited!

    I'd have to ask somebody else. I don't know how a wearer can be aware of just how much they're projecting.

    1 Million is easily my strongest. I can use 1/2 spray and still smell if clearly at the end of the day.
