Looking for light "Dinner" fragrance

    Looking for light "Dinner" fragrance

    post #1 of 9
    Thread Starter 

    My gf can wear peach or coconut or many other fruity scents when going out to dinner, but nobody likes eating a cologne burger, so I just avoid wearing any colognes when going to a restaurant.

    I'm looking for something light, but still manly, that won't offend other dinner-guests. I'm thinking perhaps something cedar-toned or fruity, but I know nothing about fragrances.

    Thanks in advance:)

    Nautica Voyage. Inexpensive, inoffensive yet attractive in polite company, does not have a prototypical "cologne guy" scent. Not cedar, but does have a nice juniper note on top, and a more generic woody drydown later on in the wearing.

    This would be an excellent, low-gradient entry into fragrances that should meet your above criteria.

    Millesime Imperial. Not too heavy. Light citrus scent that is pleasant on the nose.

    I had something in mind when I first began reading your post and then, when I got to the part where you said,cedar toned or fruity, a big smile came across my face...because the fragrance I had in mind actually features both. And it's light. And it's manly:

    Carbone de Balmain

    Check the reviews out on Fragrantica. It's basically an incense/cedar/vetiver frag with a dark fruity fig note and a little citrus via the elemi note. It's on the darker, quieter side, but is not heavy in the least...in fact, in that sense, it's light. I would suggest it's more of a fall/winter frag but really could be worn all year round.

    Ignore any actual marketing from Balmain, however. Their description of their own fragrance seems completely off and misrepresentative of what it is.

    KOUROS...just kidding, they would ask you to leave.. I think Hanae Mori would be a nice choice.

    Pull out the One Million bro; 4 hits to the head, two to the chest, two to the wrists and you're good to go.

    grin.gif ofcourse.

    But seriously YSL L'Homme should do the job.
