    Title says it all, but don't say Aventus. Already have that, and while I like it I'm ultimately underwhelmed by it based on the ridiculous hypetrain

    Well it depends...

     

    What is your age range? Where do you typically go? Climate of the area?

     

    Its VERY hard to answer questions like these because its so subjective, especially when we need so much more info. 

     

    That being said out of the frags in my collection I would reccomend

     

    Guerlain - Spirituse Double Vanille:

    Pros: It's interesting enough to garner attention, very smooth, casual and classy at the same time. It's like your smelling good without trying hard and more than likely no other person they have dated will smell like it. Excellent projection and longevity

    Cons: If it's too hot or too outdoorsy an activity (say minigolf) it would get too cloying. However I have puleld this off here on hot and humid miami nights. We run from AC to AC. 

     

    Christian Dior - Bois D' Argent

    Pros: Very much universally relevant for all dating activities. A unique smell. Versatile for multiple age ranges. 

     

    Cons: You wouldnt want to wear this clubbing or to a smoke heavy place. I don't think it will cut through.

     

    Bond No.9 - Riverside Drive/Bleecker Street -

    Pros: Very innoffensive smell goods. More uniqueness with the bleecker street. The strength lies in that there is nothing really bad to say about it. Neither are very cloying or too daring os a smell.

    Cons: Nothing that screams out extremely unique

     

    Amouage- Reflection Man

    Pros: This is a step of a familair smell for most people so it will not be very offensive. It smells great in all situations, is very versatile and has great projection and longevity.

    Cons: Nothing unique about it. You hated Le Male.

     

     

    Also Creed Royal Oud could work as well.

    I HAVE been meaning to get back over to the Dior boutique to give this one another look. Last time I was there i walked away with DHI, the time before that Leather Oud. Right now, Bois D'Argent, Oud Ispahan and Ambre Nuit are all on my radar, but if Bois D'Argent will suit the purpose I've been looking for it might edge out the other two.

    LiteEmUpGood, what a GREAT post! I love when people take the time to write out descriptions like that. I've been meaning to sample Bois D' Argent too. Thanks for the reminder!

    by Kilian's Amber Oud - its a misnomer of sorts as its more amber with little to no oud & ladies somehow love amber based on men, at least that's the reactions i've received. Other ones similar & cheaper will be HdP Amber 114 or MPeG's Ambre Preciaux...
