    Default Your most versatile fragrance

    I'm the kind of person who says if I can't wear it year 'round, I don't buy it.

    This being said, what is your most versatile fragrance?

    I love SMN's Rose (yes, I know it is a woman's fragrance. But I like it.) and Guerlain's Vetiver. Unfortunately, with the latter, I won't buy a full bottle. The significant other hates it for some odd reason.

    Hmmm ... if you like vetiver, you could try French Lover - it would go at any time of the year. It has a lemon nbote that some associate with cvleaning products (I hate how many mundane things take on scents used in purfumery "ruining it" for others!

    I also think Sel de Vetiver or Terre d'Hermes might be good to try as well.

    Bvlgari Black, for sure. I wear it year-round both to work & play.

    From my wardrobe, I'd have to say Terre. And that's about the only scent I'd consider versatile in my collection, actually. I had Platinum Egoiste as well, but I traded that away.

    It looks like my philosophy is the opposite of yours, Texican - I don't really care for versatile scents, but it's gotta be interesting or I'll get bored with it soon. If you have 10+ bottles, then most likely at least one of them will suit your needs at any given time.

    In my experience - mainly niche-based, admittedly - I've found that both Acqua di Parma Colonia and good ol' Green Irish Tweed have proven themselves to be the most versatile fragrances in my wardrobe.

    They don't cover all bases - cosy winter scents they aren't - but if I had to cut my wardrobe down to a handful of fragrances, at least one of those two would remain.

    Bulgari Black, Balenciaga pour Homme, Versace Versus, Salvador Dali pour Homme, Montana pour Homme and Yang all come to mind right away.

    I've found that Animale Animale is best for me, if I want to appreciate the frag, have it last a long time, and not offend anyone. I think all the other frags I have are either less interesting or have offended someone (since sometimes I'm around people who can't handle anything even remotely strong).

    AdP Colonia, Citrus makes it light enough for warm weather, and Bulgarian Rose gives the fragrance a little weight which makes it stand up to cold weather. Can be worn to a picnic, or a wedding.Versitle fragrance.
    Don't panic. Just stay calm, and reload....

    I wore that this morning on my way to work. Definitely an excellent fragrance. Reminds me of a sophisticated Candie's For Men (the frag I used to wear in high school). While I will keep a decant of it around, I still like MI and SMW better as far as Creeds go.

    I don't know if I just tend to delude myself into thinking my favorites are versatile or what, but here are my top versatile frags:

    Antidote - an oriental light enough for summer wear, yet just heavy enough for winter wear. Not overly formal, not too casual.

    L'Anarchiste - not nearly as off putting as the reputation that precedes it. A light application of this works anywhere, anytime.

    AdP Colonia - basically, what everyone else already said.

    Prada Amber - same reasons as Antidote, despite the scent being much different.

    One more AdP Colonia - Assoluta. Though I bought it in spring and haven't used it in autumn and winter, I'm sure it will be great at that seasons, too.
