Colognes : Polo , Burberry , Boss
Try 'Wild Stone" they are good. Though I am not a Deo user. I am using Terre Hermes and Amouage Men.

Have tried Nivea, Garnier, Axe, Adidas and few more deos. I liked Nivea the most since it has a pleasant mild odour. Axe deo tends to be too strong for my liking.
Have a small bottle of Davidoff Cool Water, which is also mild. I hardly use it. It was gifted by my brother about three years back, and only half of it is empty till now.

Never seen Wildstone - but what i have used are Wild Stone soaps - if they are the same thing , very very good but again very limited in availability.

Surprisingly some of the AXE deodorants are good, not too strong and/or artificial smelling. These are my favourites:

1. AXE Inxtinct: Not readily available these days. It lasts really long, (9am - 9pm), which I consider pretty good. And it has a smooth scent, not too powerful, but you know that it is there.

2. AXE Dark Temptation: Or the AXE 'Chocolate' Scent. Not really a chocolate, but nice and spicy. Similar to Inxtinct, but milder. Does not last as long.

3. AXE Recovery: More Citrus and Lime scented, it good for summers. Some people might find it strong.

4. AXE Apollo: A very mild scent, hence some people may not find it VFM. But is lasts long and is not overpowering, so can be used to office as well.

Other AXE's which are ok: Click, Music Star, Blast, Marine, Musk

AXE's to AVOID: Denim, Provoke, Dimension, Pulse

Which deo (preferably without alcohol) lasts for say 8-12 hour's ? From the ones that I've used so far (Nivea, Garnier Men's, Reebok, Park Avenue) only Nivea sport and the silver one lasted long. All the other's are good only for 1-2 weeks after which they don't last beyond 6-7 hour's.

Have tried Fogg, after being an Axe fan for over a decade. Fogg doesn't really last as long as Axe. Somehow felt all the ads about gas is indeed gas.
Axe is still more effective than Fogg.

Strange, my personal opinion is direct opposite to yours! I have felt that Fogg lasted really long than many deos out there. The only grouse is that the liquid could initiate a burning sensation on the skin and some particular models of Fogg are pathetic.

Well, that is a huge list. Contrary to yours, all the perfumes I have are received as a gift. I do not recall buying any perfumes in last 5 years or so
