    Default What do you wear when you can't decide what to wear?

    Ever have those days where you stand in front of your 'drobe looking at all your bottles & you just can't decide what you're in the mood for, so you throw on an old favorite/standby? What are the ones you wear in this instance? Mine are: CK one, CK be, TM Cologne, & Ken Cole Reaction.

    My wardrobe isn't all that big, so I usually just have to throw a coin. Sometimes I roll a dice.

    Default Re: What do you wear when you can't decide what to wear?

    Happens to me practically every morning ... and it costs me money. I can't tell you how many times I've been late to work because I just can't decide.

    But depending on the season ... warmer weather it's M7 Fresh and D'Orange Verte Concentree when I can't decide. In cooler weather it's Brit and Cuiron.

    I wear CK one also. But I usually look towards Echo or Curve, just frags I think are suitable to wear almost everyday cause they are no so special to me.

    This time of year its the trusty Dior-Homme-under-Bulgari-Black combo, but Burberry London is quickly becoming a frequent default. I've gone through about 95mls since mid-september.

    Default Re: What do you wear when you can't decide what to wear?

    I usually wrestle with my decision until I get an answer or end up wearing nothing at all or just sampling something.

    For days when I have to leave the house and meet others, I choose from the following fail-safe choices:

    Warm weather - D&G Feminine, Halston Classic, Eau Sauvage, Caron Bellodgia, Crown Perfumery Eau de Quinine.

    Cold weather - Guerlain AA Winter Delice, Lagerfeld KL, Guerlain Shalimar parfum, Estee Lauder Youth Dew.

    All year round - Yardley Sandalwood, SL Fleurs d'Oranger, Guy Larouche Fidji, Gres Cabochard, Anna Sui Dreams, Guerlain Champs-Elysees.

    I have many more to choose from but these give me a wide enough varity to satisfy any mood and not offend others.

    Favourite (Winter) Crazy Combos

    Tabu + Orange Blossom * Hermes Rouge + Bellodgia* Voleur du Roses+ Rose Ispahan * Rasa Extreme + Paris * Wood Coffee + Cafe Noir *

    These are all good "stand-by scents" in my wardrobe:
    Halston Catalyst for Men, Léonard pour Homme, Paul Sebastian (Original) for Men, Jean Pascal pour Homme, Eau Sauvage Extrême, Bulgari Black, The Dreamer, Equus (usually the eau de parfum version), Shalimar, Bois de Portugal, Havana/Havana Reserva

    I rotate a lot, so I'm usually not in want of anything. I try to keep seasonal issues in mind. I have a stash of the first and second:

    1.) Balenciaga Pour Homme
    2.) Davidoff Relax
    3.) Shiseido Basala
    4.) Laura Biagiotti Roma Uomo
    5.) Ralph Lauren Safari for Women

    For me it would have to be Christian Dior's Eau Sauvage, Lorenzo Villoresi's Uomo. I always have an atomizer of Christian Dior's Bois D' Argent in my messenger bag for emergencies.

    When I cant decide, I usually go for

    Gendarme

    Totally inoffensive, even if you cake it on. I can't imagine using too much of this. I think I am going through it faster than anything I've owned!
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    Mugler Cologne these days. It's easy to grab this bottle when I can't decide because it's so large and stands out -- plus I really like the scent.
    Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger.
    There is really nothing to be said about it.
    It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.

    For me it would be Aimez Moi, if I weren't conserving my decant until I can get more...this one has consistently made me feel wonderful - it feels like me.
    "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

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Usually whatever Bulgari scent seems most appropriate at the time. Saying that, I've developed a close affinity to L'Eau d'Hiver by Malle this last month.

    I didn't like it so much at first, but Davidoff Echo is really growing on me for this purpose. I'm starting to see it as the perfect sort of just plain, inoffensive, fresh, pleasent scent which suits day to day wearing. I like the synthetic nature to it as well.
