    in casual settings i would look into getting some gendarme or bulgari pour homme...these would also be great for board meetings because they wont draw attention to you but you will feel more confident because you know you smell clean.

    In a formal setting, like a romantic dinner or even a fundraiser, wear something like chanel egoiste(not platinum egoiste).

    other casual honorable mentions:
    kiehls original musk oil
    Tommy
    Eternity Summer(any of them)
    Geir
    Acqua Di Gio
    Santa Maria Novella Verbena
    Canali
    4711

    Formal Honorable mentions:
    Vera wang for me
    LeDandy by Dorsay
    Michael by michael kors

    Those would be my picks....my older brother who is 30 and is a director of southeast for a major medical equipment corporation wears the following regularly:

    When working--burberry brit, polo double black
    when at play--Tommy Bahama, canali, joop nightflight, mugler cologne, victoria secret very sexy....however his wife keeps begging me to buy him acqua di gio because she loves it...so thats what hes getting next from me as a gift!

    My range is not as wide as as many of basenoters, but my experience is that the following will set you out, in a good way, in a business setting.

    Guerlain - Vetiver
    Creed - Tabarome Millésime

    Bulgari - Pour Homme
    Lalique - Pour Homme
