    Thumbs up all purpose "anytime" fragrances - your top 2

    seattlelight started a thread in the Female Forum that I think is a great idea.

    As an ode to her, I am blatantly ripping it off for the Men's Forum.

    To quote seattlelight "You know the ones I'm talking about - weekend, work, out to dinner, home alone - the frags you wear when you don't have time to put a lot of thought into it - like the fragrance equivalent of a white shirt - goes with anything, anywhere, anytime."

    My top two "go with anything" fragrances are: Chanel Pour Monsieur and Azzaro Pour Homme.
    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    For these occasions I usually pick Bvlgari Black or Divine l'Homme de Cœur. During summer it's usually l'Artisan l'Eau de l'Artisan or Comme des Garçons Odeur 53.

    For me, it's either Mugler Cologne or Narciso Rodriguez for Him.
    Top 5 for Winter:
    1) Musk Oud - By Kilian
    2) Straight to Heaven - By Kilian
    3) Back to Black - By Kilian
    4) Encre Noire - Lalique
    5)
    M7 (vintage or Oud Absolu) - YSL

    "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."

    Another vote for Eau de Rochas Homme, though somehow I can't wear it everyday.
    Chaleur D'Animale is the one I use the most.
    Also used Clinique Happy only the after shave Balm a lot but now it is so hard to find !
