    Among others, in no particular order (among the ones tested and/or owned so far)

    Aventus and Creed BDP, but pretty much any Creed fragrance tested till now, same situation with almost any random Hugh Parsons, Lubin, Xerjoff, LM, Roja Dove and Serge Lutens fragrances have become familiar with over the years, quite a few of the Guerlain exclusives, particularly Songe d'un Bois d'Ete and the TF niche lines

    amber aoud - roja parfums

    blessed baraka - initio
    Anas b. Malik reported that Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) used to come to our house and there was perspiration upon his body. My mother brought a bottle and began to pour the sweat in that. When Allah's Apostle (ﷺ) got up he said:

    Umm Sulaim, what is this that you are doing? Thereupon she said: That is your sweat which we mix in our perfume and it becomes the most fragrant perfume.

    Definitely Aventus. It's almost too much. The wearer often goes anosmic, but it creates quite the scent bubble and trail, especially when people douse themselves in it. I made this mistake my first few wears thinking it was a weak scent.

    Mancera Gold Incense and Red Tobacco. Honestly, I can still smell those emanating from my laundry basket a week later where there are trace amounts on my shirt.

    Anything with a huge ambroxan/ambergris base like Aventus often makes me noseblind after too much, but everyone around me within 50 miles knows I'm wearing "cologne". Also any of the stronger ouds or incense scents from houses like Amouage tend to plume, or stuff like Leather Oud and Ambre Nuit from Dior. Also Tauer stuff can be bomb-tastic too.
    oh look, I have a signature

    Interlude Man
    Au Coeur du Désert (indie/niche/whatever) seems to have good power
    Al-Khatt
    Ivory Route has power

    I might start saying this more, but, projection bombs are not necessarily a good thing. A nice little aura/bubble around you is plenty, not everything needs to be MAXIMUM POWER!!! as so many people seek. I'd much rather have a civilized bubble around me rather than it screaming at other people.

    Mousse Illuminee (Rogue) is the beastliest beast I've encountered. Well, more of a jolly green giant than a beast per se.

    Unfortunately I just can't wear it (the only Amouage like that for me) - but OPUS VI has awesome, bizarre, and supernatural projection.

    Like constantly emanating rays of light, never dimming, never diminishing. It's uncanny.

    It's not even like a perfume, more a constant shimmering presence.

    (I know this because I sat next to a friend wearing it for a day).

    +1 on Rogue Mousse Illuminee. Very impressive throw indeed.
