Looking for a long lasting odp that can handle extreme physical exertion in an office environment.

Good day everyone.

I work in an office environment but on my lunch break I play very aggressive pingpong and get super sweaty.

I am looking for an odp that will last me 9+ hours and goes good with sweat.

I am 30 years old and also in the process of seducing a younger woman so I need something that isn't too "old man".

Price range: I dont want to spend more than $170 on 100ml bottles. So unfortunately this rules out the Tom Ford private collection, Creed and the likes. I don't mind buying the commercial use bottles from Notino.

I've acquired the following samples

Cdg: original, 2, 2man, Wonderoud, wonderwood, hinoki, serpentine, black, avignon.

I find the Comme Des Garcons descriptions really fun and interesting. I love Wonderoud and 2man but they seem too weak for my needs.

Tom Ford: Noir, noir extreme, tobacco oud, black orchid, self titled.

The tobacco oud is probably the most amazing thing I've ever smelled. I have a small sample vial from Saks and I smell it on occasion as a treat but ultimately I can't afford it. The Noir Extreme on the other hand seems more reasonably priced and I really enjoy the smell. Noir extreme is my number one pick so far.

Versace Oud Noir: I like it but it's a bit "old man" smelling for me.

Burberry London: I enjoy the tobacco in this... It seems a tad too fruity for me but I enjoy it a lot and if it was stronger I might order it.

Prada Amber Homme Intense. I almost bought it but decided it smelled a bit too much like bathroom hand soap.

YSL: M7, Homme intense. I almost ordered a bottle of M7 but I'm afraid it might be a bit too girly for me.

Thierry Mugler Havane. I'm impressed with the longevity but the smell is too sweet. I would prefer the smell of acrid rolling tobacco vs a sweet honey cigar.

I am in the process of investigating Montale's dark,black,musk oud's and Amourage's journey, interlude and memoir via a sample order. Haven't sniffed either house yet though.

With all that in mind... Do you all have some recommendations I should look into?

Thank you very much!
