    L'Eau D'Issey Pour Homme comes to mind.

    Another great choice would be Creed Green Irish Tweed.

    I suppose Dior Sauvage could fall in this category...

    For more of a traditional freshness, check out these:
    Acqua di Gio Profumo
    Bleu de Chanel
    Boucheron Pour Homme
    MFK's Aqua Universalis Forte
    New York Intense

    Xerjoff Mefisto, or Mefisto Gentiluomo (with a slight preference for the former). Easily 8 hours of wear, with good projection for the first 4. Great, clean fragrances.

    Invasion Barbare, Costume National Homme, Millesime Imperial, Rehab, Naxos, Mefisto, Fahrenheit (EDT and Le Parfum), Azzaro PH, Rive Gauche PH, Ganymede, Clive Christian X, Ombre Leather

    New York Intense can be fresh if you don't overspray: once or twice, max.

    Perry Ellis 360 Red, it's like a beast mode ADG.

    1+ Dior Sauvage EDT.

    It seems I'm the only one with this experience, but Dior Homme Cologne gives me incredible longevity, projection, and sillage, with only three sprays. It's one of my best performers.

    This would be my choice as well. Super long lasting and can fill a room in the first 2 or 3 hours.

    I'm going to suggest Dior EAU Sauvage here. I guess Sauvage could work too, I feel Eau Sauvage is a very fresh and bright scent on me.
    Another good one would be ADG Profumo.

    Look no further than Sung Homme. Smells a bit like Irish Spring soap and is nuclear.

    Carven L’eau Intense also lasts all day and to me smells like dryer sheets.

    My newer bottle lasts a moderate time, but lacks projection, so I wouldn't call it beast mode. I'm hopeful that maceration will improve its performance as has been the case with many others.

    I don't get any shower gel smell personally.

    Buy the largest bottle you can. If the 100ml bottle is not listed, contact Manuel via his etsy store to get one.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    How about Lagerfeld Photo? Particularly the original formulation. My original signature scent from when it first launched in 1990 (I'm old) and still one of my favorites.

    It's in the same vein as Sung Homme. Soapy and clean, not citrusy, and the original formulation is a legit powerhouse so you have to go easy on the spritzes. It also has many similarities to Drakkar Noir.
