    Default Need suggestions to complement my collection

    Hello guys, I have been around at BN for some months now and I have found a lot of interesting information and the people here its very nice and helpful. I just wanted any suggestions based on my collection and what you people think my collection might be lacking and what scents you recommend me to try (please only designer scents because in my country niche scents are impossible to find)
    take in mind I am in my early 20´s, Athletic, not too conservative, and I´m a recent student pilot graduate

    here is my collection:

    Aqua Di Gio – Giorgio Armani
    Givenchy Blue Label – Givenchy
    Very Irresistible – Givenchy
    Very Irresistible Fresh Attitude – Givenchy
    Pi – Givenchy
    Style in play red – Lacoste
    One – Calvin Klein
    Euphoria - Calvin Klein
    Escape - Calvin Klein
    Eternity – Calvin Klein
    Cool Water Happy Summer – Davidoff
    Aqua – Carolina Herrera
    L´eau D´Issay – Issay Miyake
    Bvlgari – Bvlgari
    Latitude Longitude – Nautica
    Black XS - Paco Rabanne
    Rochas Man – Rochas

    *these ones I don´t like that much

    L´homme – Yves Saint Laurent
    Black – Ferrari
    Red – Ferrari
    Be Delicious – DKNY
    Gentleman – Givenchy

    thanx in advance

    You seem to have a little bit of almost everything, and certainly a lot of fresh/citrus/aquatics. You don't have much by way of 'formal' type fragrances, either.

    Perhaps some fougeres or orientals would round out your collection - Ralph Lauren Polo (original or Modern Reserve), Chanel Egoiste, Calvin Klein Calvin, Aramis (original, 900, Tuscany, or Devin), and Guerlain Habit Rouge.

    You could also use a masculine/patchouli, such as Givenchy Gentlemen, and you could use a vetiver or two, such as Guerlain Vetiver or Lanvin Vetyver.

    None of these are niche, but I don't know what the availability is Bogota is for all these brands. Hope this helps.

    I think you might want to try Narciso Rodriguez for Him. It's certainly complex and different, but from what you seem to like, I think you might just enjoy it. It's one of the most "niche" like designer scents I have.
    You should also try Gucci pour Homme for an incredible woody, incensy scent, Geir for a sweet/tart bright, clean scent (you've got plenty, but it's always worth a sample ), and even Balmain Ambre Gris. The Balmain is positioned to be a hugely niche scent by places like luckyscent, but it can be found at really reasonable prices elsewhere. Think slightly sweet, comforting, musky scent with just a touch of coconut.

    Hey bro - you may want to try something along the lines of LeMale, Dreamer or Bvlgari Black. One of those three would be a good addition to your strong aquatic lineup.

    I also thought something formal or semi-formal would be a nice addition, for example Dior Homme (any version but NOT the Sport version), Gucci ph or Comme des Garcons 2 Man, or both male Prada scents. A non-aquatic citrus, for example M7 Fresh, Concentree d'Orange Verte or D&G Masculine may also make a nice addition.

    Hey guys I really appreciate your responses too (jrdt4t, marymark, fakepurseninja)

    I have been testing and still have some to go like for example M7, Rive Gauche, Dreamer, Narciso Rodriguez and a couple more...

    But for now I have narrowed it to two:

    Bvlgari Black ( even though I found it a bit similar to Rochas Man, really like it)
    Dolce & Gabbana Pour Homme I love how it smells


    and I´m still looking for another two more ( planning on buying 4 scents to replace the ones I don´t like)

    always open for more advice

    Hey buddy -- glad you enjoyed Bvlgari Black! It's a big compliment getter for me and the bonus is the longevity is truly great. It's my daughter's favorite frag out of 60 bottles.

    I am curious if you have tried LeMale yet?
    Peace ~ Markymark

    Yeah Bvlagri Black its very good! thanx man I´m going to buy it next time I can.

    I tried Le Male before but didn´t like it, it is just too loud for me just like A*men. I preffer scents on the discrete side, you know what I mean, for example I tried Fleur Du Male too and liked how it smells but I would never see myself wearing it.

    DG PH is a great buy!

    Black Orchid is very good scent, very unisex. the newer one Voile de Fleur struck me as more feminine, but still very good

    Issey Bleue
    Mugler Ice*Men
    Hugo Boss X&Y
    Kenzo L'Eau par Kenzo pour Homme
    Kenzo Tokyo

    They are all on the fresher side with a twist (except for Tokyo, which is not exactly a fresh type, still a great one)
