    Beautiful spring day: Fou d'Absinthe or Bois d'Iris
    Hot summer day: Erolfa or Terre d'Hermes
    Gloomy (rainy & cloudy) day: Dunhill Edition or Lolita Lempicka au masculin

    Interestingly, the "Gloomy" weather fragrance was the hardest one for me to pick, because on days like that, I crave variety more than I crave any one scent. I would actually want to have "gourmand" scents like Very Irrésistible, Yang, and Ava Luxe Café Noir on hand in addition to the two choices I listed above.

    Cool Re: Which fragrance would you choose?

    Beautiful spring day: Versailles PH, Havana, Patou PH, or original Montana Parfum d' Homme ( What's going on? Have the gods discontinued Spring? )

    Hot summer day: Lowe Para Hombre, Selection Verte, 1948 Vetiver, or Gai Mattiolo Uomo.--- Just remember hot=spritz very lightly!

    Gloomy (rainy and cloudy) day: L'Occitane Vetyver, Nicole Miller, Royal English Leather or Vintage Tabarome

    Sunday church service: Himalaya, Santal Noble, or Cacharel--- in that order.

    Office wear: Creed OV if it's serious. Mont Blanc Individuel if it's fun. Insane scents if it's slavery, e,g; Xeryus Rouge, Idole de Lubin, Nostalgia Motor Oil, etc.

    Wedding: Dunhill '34, Salvador by Dali, Roma or Minotaure; Nicole Miller, MKK --You did see 'Wedding Crashers.' didn't you ?

    Funeral: None. Unless you killed the guy. In which case wear your dark, pin striped double breasted Michael Corleone suit-- and Bulgari Black.

    Personal all time-favorite: Antaeus ( by night )

    Cheers,

    Mario
