    I have three scents that i switch on/off, based on the message/mood. If you had three scents to cover the following three categories what would they be:

    1. All Purpose - your default or sig scent (Mine is GIT)
    2. Power Play - when you want to kick in the doors and exude your confidence (Mine is Douro/Lords Penhaligons)
    3. Scent the Girls love - need i say more (1903 J. Peterman, go figure! every woman who i put a lineup together of scents always loves this the best)

    Regards,
    Nate
    1. All Purpose = Montana Parfum d'Homme

    2. Power Play = Creed "Original" Tabarome

    3. Scent the Girls love = Davidoff Relax
