    Default For casual wear, street wear (i.e. jeans) ?

    So many fragrances I smell feel like they should be worn with at least a shirt and tie or at least a button down shirt abd slacks. What are some fragrances that can be more casual and wouldnt be out of place when you don a pair of jeans and a shirt or polo? I certainly dont think I have any in my wardrobe.

    Mugler Cologne
    Creed SMW
    Creed GIT
    and lots more

    Any fresh frag is great with jeans but there are a lot of exeptions. Dzing for example.

    Do you think you could post your wardrobe? That would help a lot. While I see what you mean about scents coming off as formal, I can't exactly relate. Maybe you have overall more formal scents than me, because I feel fine wearing anything of mine any time. I would say that in general oriental scents come as as more formal, so maybe watch out for that. I think that green/earthy/citrusy/whatever scents are great with jeans. Some quality examples that come to mind are Terre d'Hermes and Phylosykos.

    Well they're both on my top five! They go especially well with jeans and casual, but I've worn both of those to work (in smart suit and polo shirt) several times now and enjoyed them in that attire also.

    Eh, I pretty much believe any fragrance CAN be worn with any clothes. That being said, I think L'Artisan Fou d'Absinthe is a great t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers 'fume.

    From Borky's drobe, D&G Masculine, Himalaya and Kenzo PH are great for jeans in the day and the rest would be fine in the evenings.

    You wear the fragrance; the fragrance doesn't wear you. If you remember that, everything will go with jeans and a t-shirt.

    They get little respect, but a lot of the Hilfiger and Calvin Klein scents are perfect for casual, lazy-weekend wear. But anything fresh, green, or (if you must) aquatic would do the trick, I figure.

    That said, I too wear jeans nearly every day and routinely spritz on "formal" scents. It offers a nice contrast.

    i feel as if there is a large selection of colognes that can be worn with casual clothes, a lot of the designer ones will do you well enough. I would recommend mayb some aquatics or green and citrus frags. Possibly consider versace man eau fraiche, leau d issey, cool water, kenneth cole reaction, lacoste essential. Stuff liek that

    I agree with those who believe any fragrance will work under whichever circumstance you choose. Weather conditions dictate fragrance choice to me much more than my wardrobe. I tend to be a casual dresser (chinos and sport shirts) so I'm good with any fragrance I choose.

    For spring and summer days, Mugler Cologne is great; very light and fresh fragrance, great for casual wear.

    1) Walk into Macy's
    2) Find the clear, green, or blue-ish bottles.
    3) Pick your favorite
    4) Wear it!

    I find only a handful of fragrances to be actual suit-and-tie ones. John Varvatos is the only one i find to be like that...or atleast thats how i use it haha. Darker bottles are often indicators of darker, less casual fragrances I.E. Varvatos once again. Youre gunna wanna go for more citrus, aquatics, green, or light woody fragrances as theyre much more casual than say Givenchy Pi, a woody gourmand, which i find very hard to find the appropriate situation to wear it in
