    Right now, it must be Terre d'Hermes. I just got it yesterday and I fell in love with this wonderful rapidly. I find it really soft, calm, manly, gentle and extremely attractive.

    Chanel Pour Monsieur - It was my first - given to me as a young kid for Christmas. I wear it very rarely - its my holy grail. Just a sniff makes me feel like yah, no worries.

    I first discovered Geir last September when a fellow basenoter by the name of Milamber highly recommended it to me. Knowing my tastes in scents, he insisted that I buy it blind. It was the greatest fragrance purchase I've ever made to this day. At the time, it was not well known on Basenotes until more and more people started mentioning it in threads. I admit I was one of the guilty ones who would rant about this scent day and night while recommending it to everyone. Up to now it is still my holy grail.

    Like most of you I too like a variety -- but my scents that would be considered signature by my friends would be Kouros, Escada PH, Azzaro PH and Cool Water. Guerlain Vetiver, Envy, Allure and Dreamer are getting more playing time too. Now if I ony had Geir, BDP....

    I like Kouros, but, already said, every time I wear it, something bad happens to me...When I buy now a frag, and think, YES ! That ll be the one...pff..after two days, allready want to buy something else :-(...

    While I don't usually wear one scent more often than many others, I'd have to say that my 'signature' scent would be Kouros. I don't wear Kouros very often (it's part of my rotation, though), but it's the one scent that my GF both recognizes and knows by name. Why that is, I don't know.
    I think she went through the same stages of Kouros acceptance as many Basenoters:

    1- Denial (Kouros can't be good!)
    2- Anger (I hate Kouros for being so popular!)
    3- Bargaining (OK, I'll buy a bottle just so people can't say that I'm being stubborn)
    4- Depression (How am I going to explain my change of heart?)
    5- Acceptance (I like Kouros, and that's ok.)

    The last month or 2, I seem to ne reaching for GIT more than any other. That's about as close to a signature scent as I'll ever have.

    Before that, it was Guerlain Vetiver.

    So, I guess I sort have seriel Signature scents.

    I would have to say Dolce and Gabanna. I get the most compliments with this. I wasnt initially crazy about this. I wanted Platinum Egoiste to be my signature scent, but I only got one compliment wearing it. Once I was told I smell like oranges.I guess its the petitgrain. I still like it very much.I wasnt initially crazy about this one either.

    I did a quick search for "signature scent" and it looks like we haven't talked about this for about fifteen months. Like many of the people in this thread, I started out trying to replace my signature scent of more than twenty years [Giorgio for Men - Giorgio Beverly Hills which, coincidentally, is the same fragrance that started MY_2_Scents, the originator of this thread, on his quest. Thanks for leading the way! ].

    As I get further into my journey, I have found a few fragrances that I really enjoy and think smell absolutely wonderful on me. I don't have a rotation but I find that I am reaching for these on a regular basis:

    Hermes - Equipage
    Guerlain - Heritage
    Chanel - Pour Monsieur (1955)
    Chanel - Egoiste
    Serge Lutens - Ambre Sultan
    Caron - Yatagan
    Azzaro - Azzaro pour Homme
    Estee Lauder - Lauder for Men

    So, do you have or even want a signature scent? What fragrances do you reach for on a regular basis? How have your thoughts evolved since this was last discussed?

    My fist signature scent (about 30 years ago) was Oleg Cassini. I wasn't really into fragrances throughout most of my twenties and all of my thirties. Oh, the wasted years! Then I got a little men's cologne sampler box from Caswell-Massey and discovered the joy of samples. My signature scent then became Jockey Club, which I still wear, but not not regularly. Now, I wear so many different scents that people just associate me with smelling good, but not with a particular scent. In the past year, I'd say the ones I've worn the most are: Yerbamate, Bigelow Bay Rum, Yatagan, LV Vetiver, Floris Santal, and Royal English Leather.

    The very idea of a "signature scent" for me, though attractive in theory, is quite impossible to achieve.
    If I could afford it, I would ask an acclaimed "nose" to create the PERFECT scent for me, but after several months/years wear... what next?

    There are scents however that I adore and will attempt never to be without. At this time, the now discontinued "love Potion No.9 for Men" by Penhaligons comes close.
    I cant say its a "signature" for me however, as I seldom wear it often enough for people to make an immediate association with me.

    Some 15 months have passed, and if I would have a signature scent, it would still be Divine's L'Homme de Coeur. I wear LV Uomo more than anything, but somehow feel the Divine scent reflects my personality. I would have not believed that I ever say that. I feel dirty.

    I think everything I have altoether is my sognature because I like my scents and try to wear them all more or less frequently.
    The ones I wear most often are:
    Givenchy Xerius and Xerius Rouge
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Cristobal Balenciaga
    Lagerfeld Man
    Samvatore Ferragamo
    M7 and RG
    Gucci PH and Envy
    Yet, this is such an incomplete list.

    I have very few scents at a given time, mostly for financial reasons. So there is no 'big circulation'.
    The best scent however I've come across during my several years of scent-hunting is Green Irish Tweed. Luckily now I have a bottle - let's say it is.
    I try not to spoil my joy by wanting always more and more scents to have - and to dispose. Without an inner peace I couldn't enjoy what I have.

    I am one of the few here with a signature scent. I wear Bois du Portugal during the week, and sometimes I play with my other scents on the weekends.I like having a scent that people recognize me for, and doesn't smell like everyother guy. I have many other fragrances 75+, but I only wear them on certian occasions.

    I'll edit my opinion from well over a year ago . I still wear CK be & KC Reaction quite a bit...but neither qualify as a "signature scent" anymore. Black, on the other hand, is still pretty close to a signature scent for me.

    However...there is one scent, that my friends know by name, that I've even gotten quite a few of my friends to start wearing because of it's universal (and unisex) appeal...& that's Clinique Happy for men.

    After thinking this over a bit, my answer (today) is Chanel no 19. I wore it comfortably at 17 and nearly three decades later and three children later, it simply melds with my skin and I feel very happy in it most any time. We have history.
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations." Jitterbug Perfume by Tom Robbins p. 189

    I remember reading through this thread when it was first posted, and I could have sworn I posted in it already too, but I guess not.

    My current go-to when other else appeals is 212 Men. I think of it as a signature, but as no one in my life seems to notice I'm wearing fragrance, it's hard to imagine other people pegging it as my "signature".

    Now that it's coming on wintertime, though... that bottle of M7 is calling, but maybe this is too much for every day.
