    Default Wearable/mainstream scents for fragrance eating skin

    I donít necessarily want to look for beast mode fragrances, but it seems like not doing so causes the fragrance to quickly burn out on my skin. Iím not interested in super dark, exotic, artistic fragrances - I just want a wearable fragrance (i.e. pleasant to most people) that makes it through the work day. Suggestions?

    I think anything that goes onto the skin enters the body. I wear on my shirt. I really think it's a mistake to put things on your skin such as perfumes. Not a popular opinion here but I think it's sound.

    Versace Dylan Blue might work well for you. It's affordable, pleasant, crowd-pleasing, and has excellent performance, in my experience.

    Honey Aoud by Montale perhaps. (not exactly mainstream though)

    You should look for materials that last well, like leathers and patchouli. Eg the A*men line.

    The Versace Dylan Blue would probably work good for you, as mentioned.

    I'd recommend Armani Acqua Di Gio or Polo Red.

    You can find these almost anywhere, not too expensive, and are generally pleasant mainstream scents.

    First of all you should use scentless lotion before applying fragrance - it will moisturize your skin so it wouldn't absorb your fragrance.
    As it was said before - don't hesitate to apply fragrance on your clothes
    My recommendation for very long lasting mainstream scents would be Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme, Dior Homme Intense\Parfum

    Having a quite fragrance eating skin (at least based on personal and subjective impressions, at the risk of being wrong or at least imprecise) so far have had quite good results with powerhouse cheapies like most fragrances from houses like Lapidus or Jacques Bogart, but cannot vouch as to how mainstream they are (since their nuclear performance and projection makes them rather difficult everyday choices)

    Mancera Cedrat Bois should last with potency for you. It's a great spring/summer scent.

    On the fresher side I would recommend Creed Green Irish Tweed. Smells great and always goes down well with others nearby too - very uplifting. For a darker leaning fragrance I would suggest Tom Ford Ombre Leather (2018). They both have excellent longevity and should see you through most of if not your entire work day.
