    Are we talking about the same bottle? the Black one released in 2010? I really like this one! Or at least I remember that I did during a testing spree. I'm just waiting for the prices to go down...

    Oh, I'll test it soon then. Thanks

    I think I found a match to what I'm looking for. CH 212MEN ICE, the 2010 edition. It's not on the directory of BN yet. I'll just be retesting it soon.

    Well because you're in a tropical location have you looked at or considered any of the Tommy Bahama scents?

    All of TB's scents are for warm weather conditions and most seem to get really good reviews here on Bnotes.

    They also seem to be for a large age range, 20's-and up.
    Hey, Odius!

    Yeah, I'm from a country that only has 2 seasons: hot and hotter. hahaha. I think I can pull off wearing some of the fragrances that I use though. I just have to be careful not to expose myself to excessive heat (it's possible believe it or not, we just have to make sure all places we're going to has strong airconditioning)!

    I've heard of that brand. It's not available here.
    Thanks, anyway! I really appreciate it!

    Thanks, for your response bluesoul! I recently went on a testing spree and I coincidentally got to try Guerlain Vertiver. I must say, it doesn't really suit my taste (at least not with the top notes) but the Original Santal, Baldessarini Ambre, and Cologne seems intriguing! Thanks, again!

    I've never been a fan of limiting yourself to "age appropriate" fragrances, as that's determined by marketing rather than any qualities of the fragrance itself. The 7 fragrances you listed have a balance of overlapping and unique styles, but there's several genres that are overlooked. One of my favorite fragrances for social events is Viktor & Rolf Antidote, it's powerful and pleasing and has a wonderful amber drydown for later in the evening. A close cousin is Creed Original Santal. I don't see any vetiver-dominant fragrances, personally I prefer Thierry Mugler Cologne to the ubiquitous (on here, anyway) Guerlain Vetiver. If you're looking for something more upscale or professional, I'd recommend Chanel Platinum Égoiste, which is also my go-to for job interviews. You also have sweeter, more comforting scents like Baldessarini Ambre (dirt cheap and terribly overlooked by most) and Dior Homme.

    That's just a small slice, in general I would apply lightly, go with what you're feeling, and don't expect too much help from fragrance.
