    Default Going out fragrances

    As the title says what are some ideal fragrances for going out? When I mean going out I don't mean on an elegant date with a special someone. I mean if I am going out to a club or a party where everything is going to be hot and sweaty. It does not need to be season specific. Something with good sillage and longevity that screams a little bit of "dirty". I am 20 years old if that helps out any. The colognes I have are as follows:

    Body Kouros
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    Kenneth Cole Reaction
    Aramis Havana

    I have a few more but never wear any of the others!

    going out for?

    vacation? a good aquatic like bulgari aqua marine hits the spot
    formal outing? Heritage, CPM
    date? M7, Habit Rouge

    Clubs demand stuff with huge sillage, namely M7 and Heritage :P

    Well in my main post I clearly state it is club/party only. Is M7 really that good? It gets alot of talk around here.

    A*men smells like I just came from my grandmothers house where she was just making cookies. Does not really scream "dirty" to me. As for the others you mentioned I will have to try them.

    yep it is that good. but do sample it first before buying. It's not up everyone's alley.

    It drys down to a musky ambery scent.

    I plead the 5th commandment.
    (Critiquing M7 may lead to death threats )

    Anyway if you're looking for something a bit on the animal or " dirty " side there's MKK by Serge Lutens or
    Ead d'Hermes by (appropriately) Hermes.
    Check out the reviews.


    Then there are powerhouses sillage monsters that really project--even with one spray, but that's another story. They vary widely from Platinum Egoiste (battery acid?) to Antaeus (80's elegant flashback)

    Check out: http://www.basenotes.net/group.php?groupid=36

    And just the "usual suspects " for clubbing, i.e; John Varvatos, Mont Blanc Individuel, Roma Uomo, etc.

    What are the others that you have but don't like all that much? Perhaps that would give us a better clue as to what to recommend.


    Cheers,

    Mario

    I think weird and fun scents are for having a weird and fun time, which is what I like parties to be. What smells weird to you and would be fun to wear is what you should pick.

    From my collection I've been happy with Diptyque's Ofresia or Diptyque's Eau Lente for parties. Also Carlo Corinto's original scent is great for wildness because it is one mighty loudspeaker of a scent. Grey Flannel is also great for this type of scent (it's always great) but from the ones listed in your original post I'd pick Havana for my Friday and Saturday shake-it nights.

    I own Body Kouros but I do not see it really as a sillage monster. Does it last on you when going out?

    yeah it last and has a good sillage but u're right, isn't a "super sillage monster".. i love it for going out, i dont like BK for office or school.. try more sprays.. dont know, each skin is different.. with 4-5 sprays i'm fine..

    Yeah, evidently according to an article Spray once posted, women get aroused by a scent akin to Good and Plenty candy, which sort of corresponds to the licorice notes in Lempicka. I am amused by that. Mostly amused that the article specified "Good and Plenty" candy and not licorice or anise.

    Just an old guy who doesn't go to hot, sweaty clubs anymore checking in. Get back to your M7.

    I vote for Rochas Man or Body Kouros. Two of my faves among the more youthful scents.

    Hahaha! I remember. I loved that about good and plenty. Still breaks me up. Now I know what to buy when all the breath mints are sold out.

    What are your thought on Opium for men? I will be testing this as well. From what I am reading it does have the potential I am looking for. Any thoughts?

    Costume National Scent Intense has very pronounced longevity & sillage, same with Lolita Lempicka. You shouldn't have any problems with either of these 2!
