My first (I think) questions on this truley great community!
I´m searching for the ultimate "all-time" fraguence, thats works everywhere and every time. Is it existing?
What I´m searching is some long lasting, smooth, non-syntetic, easy, kind of unisex more than "manly"... just truly great perfume. Wich perfume is I lookin for?
I like Mugler Cologne really, really much, bad that it somehow dissappear in an hour on my skin..
Dior Homme is a frag that my nose like too, but it is a bit "dark" i think.. Otherwise it´s lovely and long lasting! Sadly a bit too common.
Something inbetween these two would be the optimum..

I second the CK be option as being a great frag, but unfortunately the longevity is kind of lacking. The scent that immediately came to my mind was Clinique Happy...but that too has some longevity problems. L'eau D'Issey may work for you, too. I'm sorry Mugler Cologne doesn't work! That's one of my very favorite fragrances.

Hello and welcome Niclaas!
It is hard to pick just one that is universal for everyone but mine is Geir by Geir Ness. It is almost an fresh oriental with sharp, crisp notes and warmer ones that people often have thought were too feminine. It is listed as masculine but may be seen as both. With notes that contrast very much but work together SOOOO well it seems like the perfect "ultimate scent."

Guerlain Vetiver might be worth trying. Good longevity and it's worn by women and men in just about any weather.
Thanks for your suggestions! I realise that it´s hard to describe fragurances, especially when you are´nt that good in the English language..
Anyway, if the perfume is somhow "light" and a bit descrete it´s a good thing for me. I don´t really like the type of "citrus" frags and those who feels sticky in the nose. I want a "naturall" and clean one!
Well, a frag that is year round, and allround that I enjoy is L'Eau D'Issey by Issey Miyake. I find reaching for it in almost any weather. When you try it don't be put off by the top notes, just wait until the basenotes, they are just incredible.
I would suggest Platinum Egoiste.
If you want something that doesn't stick out but has a good clean smell and lasts really well, try Lanvin L'Homme. Light, discreet, non cirus, long lasting. A great office scent.
I am terribly biased towards Eau Sauvage, however duration is iffy. YSL Pour Homme would work, natural smelling with great duration. The Eau Sauvage leans more in the unisex realm while YSL PH has a dirtier, more masculine drydown.
How about Silver Mountain Water? This leans on the synthetic side but has good duration on me (on others it may be gone in a flash, and SMW tends to be expen$ive so try before you buy with this one)...

In rotation: Greenbriar (new), Silver Mountain Water, Dunhill for Men (1934), Acqua di Parma Colonia, Habit Rouge EDC, Ho Hang, B*Men, Agua Brava
Chanel Egoiste PLATINUM.
I would definitely try FRAPIN 1270, from your description.
Not citrus at all, creamy clean, smooth, with no prominent note.
It lasts long, not boring, very suitable for a man, unique!
I recommend YSL Body Kouros... I love that stuff on guys

These work for me at anytime...
Boss no1 (1985)
Gendarme comes to mind
Lately I've been wearing:
Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah
Nino Cerruti (1979) - fresh but classy, smooth green, no major citrus, unobtrusive but lasting, not overly macho, but far from the fruit punches and synthy musks of today.

Hello Niclaas and welcome,
Lanvin is a good suggestion. I would suggest you also test GFT by George F Trumper. They sometimes offer free samples on their Website.
