Thread: Need a Powerhouse
I'm looking for a powerhouse frag, something to get me noticed.
I've tried both A*Men and Le Male. Projection on both is alright for the first one to two hours, after that it is nearly a skin scent. Longevity is about three hours for Le Male, four to five for A*Men
I don't know if it's because of the reformulations or my skin, but I was very disappointed. I adore the scents of both, but coworker feedback tells me that they just can't smell it after that time unless they're right next to me, leaning in to catch the scent.

Le male only lasts 3 hours on your skin?? What sort of skin you got, are you an alien or something? Lol
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
Perhaps Guerlain Heritage or Zino Davidoff- only the latter is truly a powerhouse, but longevity and projection of either was always good judging by previous wearing experiences so far.

Italian Cypress by Tom Ford

Balenciaga Pour Homme
Lapidus Pour Homme

Sashka Black by M. Micallef probably has the most nuclear sillage I've experienced yet, though I've yet to plunge down the niche wormhole.
Oh, and of course there's Sex Panther by Odeon.
As mentioned, Lapidus Pour Homme will get you noticed. Believe me!
Amouage - Reflection Man
Tom Ford - Tobacco Vanille (that will get you noticed!)
As much as I don't particularly care for A*men and Le Male, I find it hard to believe people couldn't notice them.
On a different note, do you really want to be projecting like a beast at work?
It sounds like you want your scent to be noticed and appreciated. So:
Creed - Original Santal. Check other threads regarding OS. Basenoters tend to thumb nose toward it, but it is a nuclear crowd pleaser. No doubt there. Just wear it for an hour before you go anywhere.
Also, Scent of Peace for Him by Bond no. 9 projects very well and again, is a crowd pleaser.

Montale Black Aoud
Montale Aoud Ever

Boucheron Jaipür Homme EDP

I am guessing that since you tried LeMale and Amen, you are not interested in expensive niche fragrances or Vintage versions of old powerhouses that always get recommended. So here you go:
Note: Its highly concentrated

Another for Lapidus Pour Homme
Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.
In another direction, Caron 3rd Man or Yatagon.
maybe 24 Gold?
Anything from Montale will do the trick , though I only adore Aoud & pine and I get a scent bubble for an extremely healthy 12+ hrs and this is considered one of the tamest in the Montale lineup. The other one would be Roja Dove "Amber Oud", oohh yeah almost forgot "Aventus" plus jubilation XXV are also candidates
