    All of these are great. I would prefer Jaipur Pour Homme EDP over Fresh though. Do let us know where you find the Havana in NYC for a reasonable price as I will be going there in 2 weeks time! :-)

    NYC is usually very hot and humid during that time, so bring scents that are appropriate for that type of waether...

    Enjoy!

    yeah....as a NYC local i'd recommend 2-3 fresh aquatics for daytime...and maybe 1-2 orientals/heavier fragrances for nighttime...in the NYC humidity aquatics work the best in the day.
    CDG 3 (The one you CAN'T find anywhere) for trade.
    Full 4 oz Bottle of Silver Mountain Water(95% full) for trade(purchased at Nordstrom not online). PM me for details.

    Hi Zerby!
    New York is officially in "rot mode". It's when all the garbage trucks have fermented and fill the NY streets with their odor. It's like a fish market that had its refrigeration system fail. NY has gotten wetter and wetter over the past decade and the "rot mode" came early this year.
    That said, in NYC, nothing says "tourist" or "bridge and tunnel" more than a heavy hand with a fragrance.
    Out of your list I would stick with the Creed Vetiver for day and perhaps Tea for Two for evening. NY'ers aren't so big on sillage from others. Antaeus, like smoking, has actually been baned from all NY restaurants. Just kidding.
    Enjoy all the great things that NYC has to offer.

    NONE. Go to Aedes or Barneys or Bergoff or L'Artisan or Bond No 9 or Bendels or well ASK GRANT FOR THE ARTICLE I WROTE ON SCENTS AND NYC and buy something there. It's CRAZY hot and humid. I walk 20 blocks to the studio each day and each day I arrive with my shirt soaked and see through. My actresses make the motion to greet me with a hug then gently walk back realizing they are about to get SLIMED.

    Vetiver works the rest you have are fine scents but may suffocate you.

    Cheers,
    Al
