There are too many to list; all depends on your skin chemistry too. I suggest you go to basenotes.net and check; sometimes you can get decants or partially used bottles (some SG sellers too) for a steal.

Oh, and my main suggestion: DO NOT WEAR WHAT EVERYONE TELLS YOU TO. You'll just smell like everyone else on the street because it's the "fad" smell. Find a unique scent from an unusual scenteur, like Diptyque, L'Artisans Parfumeur, etc and you'll stand out.

I use lacoste essential,chanel egosite,polo black and bvlgari mainly.

It does depend on your skin too.
For mine,the smell does not appear strong and will never last moe than half a day.

The ones you listed have poor longevity... There are others that will last all day and continue to make your laundry basket smell good... :D

any recommendation?

I personally use Paco Rabbane XS
XS is very good, but it has a strong sandalwood/cedar note that some girls like, others don't. What's really important is if *you* like it. :)

If you want a powdery/vanilla scent, Burberry Brit is good. If you want something unusual, try Givenchy Irresistable. It's like a hazelnut latte with a twist of cinnamon... Really gets good attention. :)

Davidoff's Cool Water for me. It's fresh and light, much better for me than those musky ones

oh, it's not so simple or taken for granted at all. It's a huge, specialized industry.

some of my favortites on a cold day like this are Musc Ravageur, Burberry Brit, CK Obsession Night, Paco Rabanne XS or Diptyque Tam Dao.

On a hot day, something like D&G pour homme or cool water.

FYI: Cool Water is actually a cheaper imitation of Creed Green Irish Tweed. If you like Cool Water, try Creed and if you have a sensitive nose you'll be able to smell how much cleaner and less artificial the Creed smells; Creed uses natural oils, Davidoff uses synthetics.
