    Default Day/Night/Hot/Cold

    Here's a question I've been wanting to pose for a while. Basically,
    what type of Fragrance is best suited for Daytime and for the Night.
    Same query for Summer and colder climates. I know there's no set rule
    and lot of variables (skin type etc...). Just in general. I need a
    baseline.

    Thanks,
    John

    Default Day/Night/Hot/Cold

    Although I'm of the opinion that you should wear what you like when
    you
    like, many people will stick to lighter/fresher fragrnces in the
    daytime, or for general daywear (in the office/college etc)
    and then go for something richer and warmer in the evening and
    special
    occassions.

    Similarly, summer fragrances tend to be lighter and winter ones tend
    to
    be warmer.

    Whatever you choose though, remember don't put loads on! Your
    fragrance should be smelt by people *close* to you not anyone within
    a
    10 metre radius!

    Anyone else have any opinion on the day/night/hot/cold [email address redacted] wrote:

    You can wear what you want when you want, but remember that not all
    fragrances match all situations. Example: Tiffany for men or
    Boucheron Homme would not fit a t-shirt and blue jeans. Is anyone
    following me?

    Yes true,

    Rykiel Homme and Versace Blue Jeans fit a t-shirt and blue jeans though ;)
    (You need to see the bottle for rykiel homme to understand!)

    I'd never looked into Rykiel Homme until you mentioned it. Sounds
    great for casual wear. Love the shape and I'll have to sample it
    soon. I've tried Blue and Green Jeans and am blown away by both. So
    is
    my better half. I just ordered a mini bottle of Versus as I hear
    much praise for it and need a few more Romantic/Night out type
    fragrances. If it's available in sample size I give it a test drive.
    It's a great learning experience in discovering what's seems more
    appropriate for different circumstances. D&G and Chrome are next.

    Hey John,

    In general, I like to wear lighter fragrances in summer and heavier
    ones in winter.
    To me, a typical light fragrance usually contains citrus top notes and
    woody middle notes. Examples of this are Eau Savage(Dior), Escape(Ck),
    L'Eau D'Issey Summer and Vetiver(Guerlain).
    Heavier fragrances for winter tend to consists of spicier
    notes(pepper, nutmeg, corriander) and base notes of tobacco and
    leather. They also often fall into the oriental catergory and
    generally exude the heavy sweetness of vanilla and other spices.
    Good examples of this are By(D&G), Habit rouge(Guerlain), Envy for
    men(Gucci), Le Male(Gaultier) just to name a few.
    As for night and day, I do not normally have preferences. However, I
    tend to reserve my bottle of Dolce & Gabbana by Dolce Gabbana for
    those hot summer nights.

    Regards

    Andrew

    Hi Andrew,

    I appreciate the pointers. That kind of info. is of great value as
    more and more types and categories of fragrance are constantly popping
    up. I use Chrome and 360 during the day and at work so I figure I'm
    going along that line. I also wanted to state how thoroughly I second
    your admiration of Dolce & Gabbana. I ordered a mini of that little
    evening gem, tried it and is that ever nice. The sweet tabacco hints
    are like silk. Pure sophistication but allows for casual wear. I just
    ordered a 2.5 oz. Today and will use it on many an evening. Being in
    Central California, the warmer evenings are plentiful. It's presence
    on my dresser will be a constant.

    John

    G'day John!

    Glad someone out there shares my passion for Dolce &
    Gabbana. You hit the mark when you mentioned about
    those silky smooth hints of tobacco. That is precisely
    why I love it and why I also think it works so damn
    well in the evening.
    The fragrance is best described as a seamless fusion
    of spice, lavender and tobacco which creates a very
    masculine, yet soft fragrace, laced with the freshness
    of lemon and sage.
    I cannot possibly think of another fragrance that
    would compliment my bottle of tequila on those hot
    balmy summer nights by the pool.

    Cheers!

    Andrew

    hi john,
    in my own opinion , wear what you want anytime you want.
    but mostly for summer citrus note like eau du coq by guerlain, or eau
    adrien by annick goutal, or fougere like YSL by Yves saint laurent or
    HoHanng by balenciaga
    and winter oriental notes like habit rouge or ambre sultan by serge
    lutens.
    I think for nigth time leather notes like bel ami by hermes or women
    perfum like vol de nuit guerlain or cuir de russie by channel


    regards
    vajira
