    Welcome to you nao4! Enjoy your time here at Basenotes! Montblanc Explorer would be fine IMO.

    Of those, I'd go with Prada. But any of those should serve the intended purpose for you.
    Along those lines I would also suggest Aqua Di Gio Profumo, Bleu de Chanel EDP, YSL Y EDP, YSL LaNuit.
    Enjoy!

    Thanks for the recommendations!

    Already own ADG Profumo and i love it but I'm using it for more upscale scenarios. Already tested most of the above, but would want to go with a "cheapie" for casual use

    Just ordered the Explorer, since gf liked it a lot on me ("That's the type of fragrance i like on a man"), more than I did. For me it was just a like but I find it to grow on me and enjoy more and more.

    explorer would be my pick.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Versace pour Homme would perhaps fit the bill.

    My pick from your list would be Montblanc Explorer. Not a big fan of Luna Rossa Carbon, in fact I can't stand that fragrance. Dylan Blue is nice, but Explorer is better.
