    I think your examples of Dior Homme Intense or Fahrenheit are worthy possibilities for your needs and desires. Others will add some other good options.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    I loved Lagerfeld by Lagerfeld on my husband. I enjoy Dior eau Noir on my adult son. Might check those out! Good luck. As a beginner in scent, please remember to let the juice you put on your skin dry down for at least an hour -- this lets the scent develop on Your skin and you can also begin to see how long it will last with your chemistry. Also, don't drown yourself in scent--mostly a turnoff for many women.

    DHI 5 star scent 5 star longevity. It's simply one of the best frags on the market at any price but at less than a hundred dollars it's legendary.

    Too bad you can't up your limit.

    If you could afford Creed Aventus you'd have women swarming you like flies to shit, apparently.

    I'd say L'eau D'issey or Versace Pour Homme. I literally get more than 24 hours from D'issey and get around 11 from Versace. DHI is by far my favorite scent I own. I'd recommend also shocking out Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb. To me it's better than One Million and lasts longer on my skin. Just to warn you people do have some longevity issues with D&G The One. I love this fragrance but I normally only get 3 to 4 hours. On the rare occasion I may get a decent 6 but it's scarce. Good luck with your search!

    You;ll get lots of different top threes. I'd say:

    Farenheit
    BDC
    YSL La Nuit.

    Those are the standouts on your shortlist - along with Dior Homme. BDC and La Nuit are safer and versatile. Farenheit you should sample first.
