I tend to not want anything that's long-lasting. The few I've had that were I got from indie sellers using essential oils rather than chemical scents used in most commercial ones. If you want it to last a long time, look for something without alcohol in it and keep in mind that some alcohols aren't "alcohol" according to the FDA, so it may say "alcohol free" on the label and still contain an alcohol (I've seen this with mouthwash.)
I think the trick is to layer the scent use a body wash, lotion & then body spray or cologne. Just make sure it's not to strong. Bath & body works is a good place to look they have a huge variety and their pretty reasonable.

Layering scents make them last longer. Using a shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion and body powder etc will make the fragrance stick around longer. Just be careful that the fragrance is not so strong that people can you smell coming!
I think it depends on who are you using the scent for. Personally ... I love Philosophy Amazing Grace fragrance. very feminine But there are a lot of people who get headaches from perfume fragrances. For body lotions, I find a lot of people who aren't fond of perfumes don't mind almond scented things. The more natural a fragrance, the better.
One scent that I just love and haven't really stocked up on yet is from Bath and Body called Japanese Cherry Blossom...I have it in a hand soap and a lotion [not sure if the lotion is B&BW]...I use this and I can smell the light intoxicating smell all day long. I want some more!!!
