    It depends entirely on the time of day. If the wedding is in the evening, I'd recommend Creed's Bois du Portugal. If it's during the day.. Creed's Feuille Verte or L'Artisan's Voleur de Roses. Have fun at the wedding!

    CD's Fahrenheit would work. I wish I knew what's in your wardrobe. What other fragrances do you have in mind?

    A kind of practical point of view: if there will be a dinner/supper after the ceremony bear in mind that the smell of heavier foods -onion, garlic, stewd meat, etc- may interfere with your frag, especially in summer. In this case I would choose some neutral, clean frag, like Equipage, Mugler Cologne.

    You actually have a good wardrobe to choose from. Whenever I go to a party that starts on the late day/early evenings, I usually pick a scent that has a decent longevity on me. That way, I don't have to "refresh" constantly. Just in case, I do bring a small decant with me. With that in mind, I checked your lists that you rated five on longevity. I've narrowed to list to:

    1.) Egoiste-- one of my favorites.
    2.) Creed MI-- you could never go wrong.
    3.) Dzing! by L'artisan. Does this really stay with you for a long time?

    I usually bring a handcherchief and spray a little bit of juice in it.. in case of an emergency.

    Good luck and thanks for sharing your wardrobe with us!!

    Egoiste or Dzing! I'm thinking Egoiste is maybe a touch more formal but either would be wonderful, they're beauts.

    You have lots of good ones to choose from in your wardrobe. From your collection I would be choosing from among:
    Egoiste
    Fahrenheit
    M7
    Rive Gauche

    I attended a wedding yesterday (hot weather, daytime, indoors) and considered all of the above, plus Chanel Antaeus. My two finalists were Antaeus and M7, and I ultimately chose M7.

    You did say in your first post that you intended to purchase a new scent for the occasion, so I am not sure why knowing what is in your wardrobe would matter, except for things to exclude as new purchases.

    Therefore, one that would be fresh yet rich and lasting, which would fit the bill, would be Helmut Lang.

    I used Clive Christian 1872 and it was complimented at a recent wedding.
