I find Acqua di Giò pleasant, but pretty bland as well. Not offensive but not very interesting either. Skip the obvious ones...or at least list what your options are and we can help narrow down the ones that aren't worth the effort. Having said that, some popular scents are popular for a reason...

K10 was one of those that smelled fantastic the first time...then gradually became less and less interesting. Still, it's a solid scent and I wouldn't give my bottle away. Wearing CDG2 today. Nice balance of aldehydes and chewing-on-tinfoil.

Agree with the comment above...Kouros+orange (same perfumer if you're curious). I happen to prefer OS to Kouros, but for the price difference, I'd take the latter.

I really like O&C! Wearing No. 22 today.

Hmmm...hard to tell. I've never been a good judge on whether or not something projected. I think it's because I don't produce enough body-heat(?) I'd be fairly confident that it projects relatively well though...it's one that I continue to catch...
