    Default A 'Tour' of Men's Fragrances?

    Hiya everyone!

    I'm not really new to the world of fragrance, but I'm definitely new to men's colognes. To date, I have really only seriously smelled a few...

    To date:
    1. Zeste Mandarine Pamplemousse (I have a bottle of this)
    2. Terre D'Hermes (oddly enough, very similar to Zeste to my nose)
    3. D&G Homme
    4. Acqua di Gio (grr!)

    Can anyone suggest a 'sampler' of mens' fragrances? Like a 'this is what you need to know about men's colognes?' tour.

    I'd recommend:
    All around, day use: Chanel Pour Monsieur and Antaeus
    Evening scent: Dior Homme, Knize Ten, L'instant de Guerlain
    Spicy: Hermes Belami, MPG Secret Melange
    Green/Fresh: Guerlain Vetiver

    I think any of these might be good ones to help you get going. They range in price from afforable (you can get Vetiver online for $20 or so) to pricier (MPG Secret melange is around $100, Creed is more than that), but all are ones that you might like, or at least should try once while discovering men's scents.

    Honestly your best option IMO is to go to your local Sephora (Saks or Neimans would be even better, but like you I'm from Pittsburgh originally, so I know thats probably not gonna happen), get a bunch of sample strips and go to town. I'd spread it out over a couple of visits if you can because your nose is likely to get fatigued. If you're lucky you'll find a sales associate that knows what they are doing. More than likely you'll have to depend on yourself, but its a fun experiment regardless.

    If you want to get more specific, on these boards it seems you'll hear the most about: Guerlain Vetiver, Mugler Amen, Dior Homme, Gucci Envy, Chanel Egoiste and Creed Green Irish Tweed. Not the most diverse group but its a fantastic start.
