Look, the point is you've got to feel
A. They can be worn with jeans and
B. They're five stars
You have zero for Havana and 3 for BB which I think is a 5 star at night but to hell with what I think--go with what you like.
I liked the Zino one and Guerlian--but Guerlian is a 4 star for you. Try a whiff of Vetiver Extraordinaire, or Annick Goutal's
And try Antaeus instead of BB
Himalaya can be worn with anything, and I agree 5 stars.
Foundering with D&G Masculine? Go green with Lowe para Hombre or Iskander. I wish I could say Versace L'homme but I haven't smelled it since its supposedly infamous re-formulation.
I understand where some posters are coming from re ' you can wear it with anything, etc. ' More power to them, I can't wear Dunhill 34 or Richard James with Jeans but-- whatever . . .Hm . . .I can see the potential for a triple thread hijack:
" What Frags made for women do you consider masculine enough to wear with both sandals and tuxedos in hot summer weather? "
It would probably run into the hundreds, from the inevitability of those who cannot refrain discussing how there's no such thing as feminine or masculine;
how you should be able to wear the heaviest Orientals in a crowded elevator at 100 degrees Fahrenheit as long as you do so with panache--and aren't you being a snob by mentioning tuxedos? (or worse, petit bourgouis?) Or perhaps a reverse snob by mentioning sandals? Damn! Throw in something about Creed while we're at it! Hundreds of posts indeed!
Meanwhile, back at Planet Earth:
I've found I can lounge in luxury in jeans with the (to me) 5 star fragrances:
Le Roy Soleil Homme by Salvador Dali
Penhaligon's Blenheim Bouquet
Habit Rouge---You gave it a 4
Kolnisch Juchten by Parfums Regence
ysl rive gauche ph
“The Sandal Tree as if to prove,
How sweet to conquer hate by love,
Perfumes the axe that lays it low.” Rabindranath Tagore, Indian poet.
PR 1 Million as long as it's not hot, Dunhill Desire Blue(nice cheapy), Creed MI, of course there are hundreds!
I tend to go with Habit Rouge, CdG Sequoia, Yatagan, Bogart ... today I'm wearing l'Anarchiste with a polo shirt and black jeans.
For what it's worth, I can't think of any l'Occitane fragrances that I've tried that wouldn't work for casual wear.
It's interesting how opinions can vary on this. I have a tendency to wear a lot of scents that to my mind are fairly formal and elegant, demanding sartorial support (DC 1913, Eucris, Windsor, Tabarome, Royal English Leather, Boucheron Pour Homme).
When I look at your wardrobe, almost all look like good casual scents to me. This is one of those areas where we all invent ourselves I think.
Totally agree. I just don't get this formal clothes only/casual clothes fragrance thing..............if you like it, just wear it, who cares??
Edit this was meant to quote docluv 45's post LOL
Cool Water Game it is very easy to wear. A simple and uncomplicated fragrance, but its not ordinary.
Going to wear my new Chanel Antaeus in modus casual.
I agree with all the guy who are saying wear anything with jeans. I do. Still, I know what you're saying. You're talking about casual jeanswear, right? A good recommendation that doesn't get a lot of love on basenotes: Kenneth Cole Reaction. It's casual, and I've had several women compliment me on it. Like flirty, chick magnet type compliments - not to be confused with the "you really stink but I'm trying to be nice about this" compliments. Worth a try, at least. My wife bought it for me several years ago, and I still wear it now and then. I always enjoy wearing it, but I keep it only for very casual situations.

My Current Fab Four Fragrances:
1) La Nuit De L'homme
2) Valentino Uomo Intense
3) Pure Malt
4) Le Male
Bleu de Chanel, Platinum Egoiste by Chanel, L'Homme by YSL, GPH2, Boss Bottled...
frankly you can wear whatever with any clothes. I've rocked Dior Homme Intense, Tobacco Vanille no problem with jeans on, just smells good
I'd go for the gourmands and aquatics, maybe some citrus scents too.
Doesn't really change anything if I'm in 'Muftie' or not.
I wear what I want, when I want.
Well, Borky, it's been over 6 years since you asked the question, and you still haven't found anything suitable?
