    What are you doing for New Years?
    Going out/having fun with the boys? 1 Million
    Family get together/indoor party? Bleu De Chanel
    At the bar/club? 1 Million, Bleu, La Nuit

    La Nuit honestly works for any occasion. If you like one more than the other, don't worry too much about what you're doing, just purchase the one that smells best. Trust me, 99% of the people around you aren't going to think "that fragrance is inappropriate for this event..."

    He may have forgotten or simply didn't want a pole. I've done this myself.

    I've only wore it once but Costume National 21 is simply fantastic! Your question sounds like you're looking more for a party scent so unfortunately it would probably fall short. But I doubt you're buying a cologne just for one day so go with it anyway!

    If you're looking to grab attention, use 1 Million. I like that one as well but it would never be a signature scent for me.

    Yes, +1. I concur.

    Bleu de Chanel is a decent, contemporary scent - and while it smells fair, to me...it offers nothing really "special".

    La Nuit de l'Homme definitely does. You may want to consider other scents outside of these...let us know if you are open to suggestions.

    Cheers.

    Agree - these aren't super exciting choices and I predict a lot of people will have received 1million at Christmas.

    Also, occasion is everything...

    Im going out clubbing for New Years. DHI is currently my signature scent but I want to get something else since the bottle is going by quickly. I have about 15 other colognes but nothing is on DHIs level. And yes im open to suggestions. There seems to be no clear cut winner judging by this thread.
