    Default What to wear to the Nutcracker Gala tonight...

    It's pretty much black-tie, but I don't own a tuxedo, so I'll be wearing a charcoal suit. The night will include dinner, a ballet performance, "cocktail time", etc...

    I don't go to these kind of things as much as I'd like to, but tonight I get to select from my "nicer" fragrances...

    What would you wear?

    Jaipur
    Bois d'Argent
    Dior Homme
    Baie de Genievre
    Bois du Portugal
    MIllesime Imperial
    Royal Delight
    Selection Verte
    Armani Code
    Terre d'Hermes
    Hugh Parson's yellow
    Tea for Two
    Blenheim Bouquet
    Endymion

    If my Feuille Verte arrives in the mail today, I'm pretty sure I'll go with that...

    I could also go with Daim Blonde, but thats a sample.

    Starts in 5 hours...cast your votes!
    Lately I've been wearing:
    Windsor, Bois de Santal, Original Santal, Elixir, Douro, Endymion, Reflection, Arcus, Marwah

    I would suggest Blenheim bouquet or Jaipur. To me they both seem a bit more for formal and evening wear. Not that you couldn't wear them just any old time.

    Have fun

    Bois du Portugal is a gentleman's fragrance to the nth degree. It was made for formal events like you're attending (my opinion).

    Bois du Portugal, or, if you feel a bit more adventurous, Royal Delight.

    I was actually really considering the Royal Delight as well...

    Where Bois du Portugal would be perfect, Royal Delight has the unisex thing going, and at a ballet gala, I'm thinking it might be spot-on...
    --------------------------------------
    Ok, now I'm REALLY screwed...

    Guess who just showed up in the mail?

    Feuille Verte.

    I'd do bad things for a whole flacon of this. Actually, one flacon wouldn't even be enough. I'd buy about ten flacons of this if I could. I'm pretty sure Creed created this fragrance for me, to remind me of dreams I had when I was younger. I doubt anyone likes this scent more than I do.

    jaipur then you will smell like a big queen at the ballet - well, kinda true but the suggestion is serious

    I was lucky enought to try a sample of Feuille Verte (courtesy of ZZ), and it is wonderful, but I wouldn't say it is formal or Nutcracker-like. I'd save it for being the best smelling guy in dance class next week.

    I agree, I'm just really excited about the FV! And this IS a special occasion!

    I DO want my entire life to smell like Feuille Verte. However, until I get a bunch more...unfortunately dance class isn't worthy! I usually rock out the Racquet's for just about anything athletic.

    ..........I just got up and treated myself to another spritz of FV.
    This stuff is really really just ME! I have SO arrived.

    A "Big queen", huh?

    Well, I guess that rules out Jaipur, doesn't it? In fact, I guess I now must ask myself, "Do I ever really want to smell like a "Big Queen"?

    I'm glad you found "your scent" . That must be really neat when that happens.

    So, if you've deemed dance class as not worthy of FV...I'd definitely echo the suggestions of Jaipur. That stuff is class & appeal in a bottle, despite what supermarky says. Plus, I agree it's definitely the right time of year for Jaipur.

    If it were me I would rock BdP or Royal Delight (got a decant from an honorable member and LOVE it) I reckon the RD is a little fresher and perhaps female friendly (not that BdP is not of course).

    Have a good night mate.
