I've never understood why anyone would use a term like "combat" for dating and sex. I'm not talking about you since I realize you're quoting a common term.
My advice is one I was complimented on last night: Gucci Pour Homme II.
I was actually coming here to post a +1 on compliments for it.
Others may disagree, and that's fine since we all have different approaches, but I'm a single guy and I've found that the best choice for a scent is one that's attractive without being blunt about sex. In other words, smell attractive, but DON'T smell like you're trying to get laid.
I don't keep GphII in reserve. I bought it strictly for a dating scent, but it turned out to be so versatile that I now wear it a lot. It's sophisticated enough to wear to a meeting, it's stylish enough to wear out for drinks, it's sexy enough to wear on a date. And the idiots at Gucci are probably going to discontinue it soon. I highly recommend giving it a sniff to see if you'd like it. Another good choice is Aventus, but that costs 3X what GphII costs. It's excellent, but I can't say it's been better for me. I'm glad I own both though.
If you're in a relationship, the rules are totally different, of course. It's easier then since you know what you like and you know what she likes. Wear that
One more thought on scents for intimate moments: A scent with less projection is better. The last thing you want to do as your body heats up is create an overwhelming scent cloud.- - - Updated - - -

Yeah, but that's awesome! It means it isn't common, which means you smell unique. If you wanted something everybody already knows, go with Acqua Di Gio. Personally, I never explain what it is when asked. I just say "It's called Aventus" and leave it at that.
