    Default Need a new everyday scent-- fast!

    Hi,

    I've been wearing Creed MI for the last few years as an everyday scent. But now its starting to not wear that well on me anymore, plus I've become averse to smelling like the Sean John Unforgivable 'ish. So, I need a new scent.. and fast!

    I've tried Terre D'Hermes, but it smells awful on me (I think). Any other ideas? I'm 23 (see my wardrobe), and I like wearing my everyday scent to work, so maybe nothing that's going to make everyone sneeze. I've sometimes had problems with that..

    Also, where is the best place to apply an everyday scent? On the chest?

    I second Mugler Cologne, Guerlain Veitver and XS, I would also recommend YSL Rive Gauche and Chanel pour Monsieur.

    Parfums de Nicolai New York might also be worth checking out.
    Possibly, but with a capital 'p', Ciel Man by Amouage . . . just a hunch
    Neither are cheap but if you're paying MI prices, why not have a look?

    You need nothing more than Dior Homme Cologne. Make sure it is the Cologne version, I'm wearing it again as my SoTD and I just can't get over how brilliant I smell. Taking of my work shirt after a day's work is like a gift when I wear DHC.

    How about Azzaro Pour Homme? It is perfectly suitable for the office and smells great to me. And by the way, if it matters, it is much less expensive than what you have been wearing, but does not smell like an inexpensive fragrance.

    If anyone looked at his wardrobe, you'd see he already owns Mugler Cologne. :P

    I'm going to go with Cartier Declaration. Great everyday/work scent. Shouldn't make anyone sneeze.

    You can apply wherever you feel comfortable...neck, chest, etc. I apply on my forearms too...the hair follicles (spl?) make the scent last longer.

    I'm not suggesting this one (Sycomore) but I think you'll find it is around USD 200 for 200 ml which actually works out less than MI and a few of the other suggestions here.

    Is this one by Chanel? It looks like it was made for women (which I am not).

    It's unisex, but definitely more masculine than feminine.

    I agree that the Chanels represent great value for the dollar. However, is it your experience that Sycomore wear lighter with less projection that Encre Noir? If that is the case, then that is for me indeed very light.

    Sycomore (in my experience anyway) seems immune to being over-applied, so the projection and lasting strength is fairly dependent on how well you apply it. (I'd also mention that I have the same experience with Bel Respiro which is also in the same line of 200ml Les Exclusifs from Chanel).
