    Default What is your all-purpose fragrance?

    Do you have an all-purpose fragrance? By that, I mean something you often choose for day-to-day wear because you know it just plain works in any situation.

    I gather that most people on here wear a variety of fragrances. I have been doing that too and have been getting a lot of fun and pleasure out of it. But sometimes I wonder whether people have a particular favorite for general use. I知 not sure signature scent is the appropriate term for this because I知 not thinking about something that specifically identifies you洋ore like a reliable friend you always know you can turn to no matter what.

    I知 not sure I have one yet. Do you?

    Thanks.

    Mine would be Dior Homme I think. I wear it most weekdays, and although I have lots of other great smelling scents, some days I feel almost like I'm cheating if I don't wear DH! For me, it seems to work well in all weather (spray less in summer though), and in all situations - scruffy clothes, or dinner suit.

    For me, this is probably a signature scent too because I wear it so often. Some days I wish we worked less and had longer weekends so I can change what I wear a bit more often!

    Rive Gauche
    Hermes D'Orange Verte
    Bvlgari Aqua

    Pretty much my whole wardrobe is versatile now. I got rid of all my heavy vanilla/oriental scents and have been attracted to lighter, cleaner scents as of late.

    Giorgio for Men - was my everyday scent for many years.

    Azzaro pour Homme - if not for Basenotes and the resurrection of Giorgio for Men, could easily have become my everyday fragrance.

    Terre d'Hermes with a slight bias toward warmer weather and Caron 3e de Homme with a slight bias to colder weather, though both work well in any season.

    Thanks for your replies. I always like to see what different people have to say on here, and this is certainly a variety. I own a few of the fragrances named. I find it interesting that Dior Homme was mentioned a couple of times. I own it and I love it, but I see it as more of an indulgence fragrance than an all-purpose one. It seems special to me, so I deliberately don稚 wear it much because I don稚 want to wear it out, if that makes any sense. That does give me an idea for another thread, though, but I think I will spare you!

    Thanks again.

    My wardrobe trends toward the all-purpose, but I will reach for the following in any situation, as they are quite versatile for me:

    Guerlain Vetiver
    Green Irish Tweed
    Burberry Brit for Men
    Dunhill (2003)
    Richard James
    Terre d'Hermes

    It WAS Fahrenheit, before I got this reformulated bottle...

    The reformulation is not such a masterpiece, but I weared it 2 or 3 times and I have to say it's still better than most of the newish crap, if you're in the mood and can accept the changings.

    But not my all-around anymore.

    Ok, I don't have an all-purpose frag at this moment, I just posted to complain a bit more about Fahrenheit.

    I'm still deciding from a group that includes:

    AdP Colonia Assoluta
    Dior Homme
    Scent Intense (Costume National)
    L'Homme (YSL)
    Terre d' Hermes

    This group could grow to include: M7 Fresh based on first impressions
