    Default Let's pair colognes with outfits!

    Well, I thought this would be a fun and interesting ithing. Let's pick fragrances we know/own and pick the appropriate outfit for them. You don't have to be specific, just rough descriptions. Some fragrances can fit with practically anything, so mention that if that's the case. This should also be useful for those who are still developing their noses. I'll start with a few of mine, correct me if I miss:

    Havana: Dark shirt & tie/ suit
    Le 3e Homme: Suit
    Cologne by Thierry Mugler: anything
    Millésime Impérial: jeans and above

    All I can think about right now is how great a white dress shirt(casual, maybe unbuttoned) and jeans will go with Dune and Bvlgari Aqva. Or perhaps a black sweater and jeans with Bvlgari Black.

    Le Male - Skimpy little sailors uniform. Not really though, more or less a nicer casual. Jeans and a button up shirt.

    Default Re: Let's pair colognes with outfits!

    M7 - dark shirt (perhaps blood red, like the bottle), black pants

    Versace Jeans Couture - the brightest shirt you own, jeans (obviously)

    Geir - like it matters, you could go naked and people would still love it

    Havana - good call on the suit and tie, the more formal the better

    cool topic btw

    Default Re: Let's pair colognes with outfits!

    When I work in a suit I generally wear Neroli Sauvage or Tabarome Millisime.

    Its only the tabarome which I find too formal to wear with casual clothes, and the Acqua Di Parma which is too casual to wear with a suit (works perfectly with smart casual) all my others (including Bois de Portugal) seem to work with any attire.

    Ripped jeans with stains left by old food that dropped in your lap.
    Puke Green shirt with ruffels (shirt has yellow arm pit stains)
    Old red canvas shoes (sole is coming loose in the back and flapping up and down when you walk)(also, shoes used to be white but are red now because of the hatchet incident)
    Back on Basenotes after about a 6 year absence. Need to time to re-adjust

    A personal favorite of mine...

    Lacoste Essential: Lacoste picque polo w/khakis or shorts in the summertime.

    They go hand in hand in my opinion.
