    Yes.

    I'd suggest Rive Gauche by YSL for a year round/ever occasion scent.

    I second Guerlain Vetiver and Rive Gauche.

    Also, my personal fave, Armani Eau PH might be a good choice.

    I could wear Kenzo Power all year, its easy to wear in summer, but also very easy to wear in winter autumn and sping,
    I really really like the stuff, but to be honest I still couldn't wear one frag the whole year. I have to have variety lol

    Its very hard for me to find Guerlain testers retail around here. I guess I will have to order a sample from somewhere...

    Bulgari Aqua ( but not cold winter)

    Does TM's Ice Men fall in the "all year" category? I have only smelled it once and have been meaning to revisit it.

    I can't see your wordrobe , so those were blind sugestions . Hm, I have worn Chanel PMC today too , great feeling , isn't it ?

    I love Armani Code , but i feel like it is not to popular around here , I wear this one all year round , Dior Homme is my safe choice too whenever I want to feel luxurious and elegant ,...

    If you were thinking about guerlain vetiver anyway, maybe encre noire? I only tried it recently, but I'm very impressed by how clean its dirtiness is, so to speak.

    Default Re: Need suggestions for good "all year" fragrance.

    Ok so I'm considering these from this threads suggestions so far:

    Vetiver by Guerlain
    212 Men
    Dior Homme.

    I just need validation that these are kind of all year fragrances for Memphis TN USA

    I love Guerlain's Vetiver, and I agree that it is definitely heavy enough for winter (especially the mild ones that we have in the South). I think that it is a love-it-or-hate-it fragrance, though, so I would suggest testing it first. I bought mine at Perfumania on sale, so it should be fairly widely available to test.

    You know, one fragrance that I could wear all year round is Bay Rum. It is a surprisingly refreshing tonic in the heat of summer, but the depth of spiciness is perfect for winter as well.

    I'm having a very hard time finding samples for Guerlain vetiver anywhere and its not in department stores and the perfume store here doesn't have a tester of it

    Kenzo Jungle? or is it too sweet for summer?

    To me, if you say "all year" fragrance, it is gonna have to be vetiver based or a fougere. That is just my opinion, though.
