    A*Men will last through a work day. Not that i would want to smell like that for a long day, but it will make it.

    A few that come to my mind are le Male, Paco Rabanne PH, Pure Malt , Kouros (up till most recent offering) and many cheaper alternatives (You can buy any number of bargain bin frags that will last most of the day)

    If "quality" isn't a requirement, than anything you can find at the supermarket.

    Kouros for sure.

    L'eau D'issey , Aventus and Old school Drakkar noir are up to the task...

    Pretty much anything in the Deodorant/Aftershaves sections, such as Denim or Axe, which also do "fragrances". That stuff lasts for weeks. I was just sticking to the topic: powerful and cheap - none mentioned quality.

    Brut Dominant - will give up to 8 hours (at least I get that)
    Heavy Application of Adidas Ice Dive will give 5-7 hours
    Sung Homme - pretty much an all day one
    Cuba Red - decent longevity, nice "comfy" scent
    Agua Brava - decent longevity I think it lasts longer than the wearer thinks it does

    It has been my experience with blue collar type guys that a good "manly" smell on other guys is fine but coming to work smelling like you are getting ready to go on a date all the time may be a little much, so keep that in mind and save the "good stuff" for the ladies or your S.O. and actually a lot of women also like the scents I just listed and everyone of them is inexpensive so within anyone's reach and none smell "stuffy" or like a "rich guy"

    If i where in this line of work i'd most likely wear Fahrenheit. I also was friends with someone who's dad was an Iron worker and everyone used to call him the nice smelling man. he wore PS design on a daily basis. He was an older gentleman but everyone always said he smells so good. I ended up buying that fragrance when I was in my early 20's. unfortunately I didn't get that feedback. They all said I smell like old spice. this leads me to believe the man makes the fragrance...not the other way around.

    Actually many standard designer brands are available in Supermarkets in UK. This week I have seen Le Male and many others in Tesco.
    Can't speak for USA though.

    +1 for A*Men

    Kouros would act more as camouflage than fragrance for the sewer plant worker.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Creed - Original Cologne
    10. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men

    Curve yellow bottle is very affordable and smells nice and you can get it at Walmart, Target etc. don't let that discourage you, all my friends love it on guys for some reason.

    Any old school 1980s powerhouse fragrances. Those tend to be longevity & projection bombs. My father worked in a packing plant and my uncle worked as a truck driver back in their day. There signature fragrances were respectfully Fahrenheit & Ted Lapadis Pour Homme. Both those scents are very strong.

    Perhaps another suggestion to the already great recommendations above: Preferred Stock, a lasting, both rugged and maturely elegant powerhouse, while easily available both in retail and online at very good price, its quality stands above its going rate, making it a good value buy, as well as with a good skin development.

    Great suggestions so far. +1 for Amen/Leau d'Issey/LeMale

    Will also add for great, long lasting cheapies:
    Cuba Prestige(cheap and great AMen clone)
    Cuba Gold (great LeMale clone)
    Animale Animale
    Thallium
    Hanai Mori HM
    CK One Shock
    Diesel Plus-Plus
    Nautica Voyage
    Perry Ellis 360 Red, 360 Black and M

    Also anything from the Bogart house, I have Silver Scent and Silver Scent Intense and both are super long lasting.

    Three+ sprays of Amouage Interlude Man - that will outlast a full day in the sewer plant, for sure.

    Kind of expensive for that sort of job, though, so I'd recommend cheapie powerhouses. Drakkar Noir, Salvador Dali Pour Homme, Kouros. You can buy these all for under $30 and they last all day. Some of the suggestions above surprised me - you probably don't want to smell like lemon cake or a dainty flower when working in construction or sewer plant - you want something BIG and BOLD, an old school powerhouse, from when fragrances were made to fill a room and almost choke everyone in it. Those are the only ones that will stand out to the environment you described, heat and sweat, and last a full day with ease.
    Currently wearing: Odoon by Pekji
