    Hey buddy,

    Enjoying the fragrance reviews on YouTube. Keep it up. Looking at your wardrobe, I'd probably suggest the following to keep fleshing out your designer fragrance collection. They're all good, so it's basically up to you in regards to what notes you love:

    Burberry - London
    Gucci - Pour Homme II
    Kenzo - L'eau par Kenzo
    Armani - Code
    Polo - Blue

    Those are all pretty good smells which would go along with what you already have.

    In regards to creed - it's so subjective. If you're in NJ, you should just take a day to come to NYC and smell creeds at Saks Fifth or the Creed Boutique. Creeds have all kinds of flavors. If you want something more versatile and aquatic, go for GIT or MI. If you're looking for woods, then head to Tabarome or BdP. SMW is a little more unisex but very refreshing. Acier Aluminum is very sexy (according to a few girl friends). I'd say get one standard aquatic (GIT, MI or OV) and a deeper smell like Acier, Tab or BdP). Be warned that BdP is pretty mature smelling and Tab can also feel a little too intense for younger folks to enjoy. I've smelled all of them. Let me know if you have other questions.

    Hard to say about Creed, but I'd suggest BDP as the first... and even the second choice

    My personal recommendations would be, in no particular order though:

    Azzaro Visit
    Solo Loewe
    Dior Homme
    CK Obsession Night
    Dior Fahrenheit 32

    If they were believable and you got disappointed, will you hurt us? =p

    "I need 5 unbelievable fragrances to buy blindly, that i will absolutely love." - This is quite an expectation. Just curious, have you been disappointed with any blind purchases so far (assuming you've made blind purchases)?

    In that case, my random 5 in no particular order:

    Gucci Pour Homme II
    Hermes Concentre D'Orange Verte
    Narciso Rodriguez for Him
    (Given you like Fahrenheit, this may be worth sampling, er ok blind buying I guess )
    Lalique Encre Noire (Not sure I see too many vetiver heavy scents you have now, I haven't tried some of those in your collection. Expect EN not to work if you do not like vetiver.)
    Dior Homme Cologne (This is not to be confused with Dior Homme)

    I hate to be a bummer about this but a $100 limit is a pretty solid limit on a request for INCREDIBLE colognes. With that in mind:
    1. New Haarlem - Bond no 9 (More than $100. Like $145~)
    2. Body Kouros - YSL
    3. Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    4. A*Men if it's your thing.
    5. M7 - YSL

    so from someone who's enjoyed your video reviews.
    like a few others m7 and jazz by ysl, 212, tom ford grey vetiver.

    as for the creeds, i am in no way really knowledgeable about them but out of the ones ive tried in the past that caught my attention were green irish tweed( a sure win to most id guess) and orange spice.
    cant wait for those new reviews to come online

    Yo JRWRITER!

    If you're going with blind buys... here are my 5 suggestions which you should really like and can't go wrong with a blind buy:

    1. Terre D'Hermes
    2. Aramis
    3. Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    4. Azzaro Chrome
    5. Guerlain Vetiver

    And for the Creeds... I personally think you should go and smell them before buying any, blind buying a Creed is certainly a no no. I really love Virgin Island Water and I also quite like Himalaya.

    spend the $20 to get sample vials. $500 is a lot to risk.
