    For me, Prada Amber Pour Homme, I can go with it everywhere with everyone and it always feels great, smells great and always earns some good words from others

    For me:
    Cuir Ottoman. It is utterly beautiful from start to finish. Incredibly easy to wear. A wonderful skin scent hours down the line.
    Warm and comforting in winter But bold and electric in hot weather. I feel incredibly confident when I wear it.

Ended up getting a free sample of this rather randomly (had no intention to) and finally gave it a wearing and I thought "hey, this is pretty nice." The next wearing had me thinking "Wow, this is really nice" and subsequent wearings have not diluted that feeling at all.

    Not only is it really nice, there really is a lot going on in the scent, although the transitions are smooth and the whole thing is a bit reserved and can thus make it easy to miss the changes and easy to write the scent off as boring, banal, trite, or whatever the current popular snobby put down happens to be.

    There are many facets of it that really impress me. First, the vetiver here is actually quite pronounced but so clean and pure (supposedly they are using a special extraction method to get only the purest/cleanest part of the heart of the vetiver note from the oil). The pear in the opening is used masterfully - it's easy to never notice that there's a big pear note due to the wonderful blending, but perhaps most impressive is the use of honey here. It is woven throughout the fragrance from top to bottom, but never ever gets intrusive, urinous, or even really gourmand-like. It's sweet and smooth but never heavy or cloying. And when the cinnamon facet of the cypriol & benzoin join the honey in the middle to late dry down - heaven!

    I haven't even mentioned the wonderfully smooth floral facets that are underpinned so successfully by the "white wood accord" (the vetiver and a clean clean sandalwood along with some cashmeran perhaps and definitely some violet like ionones). The enchanting violet leaf note. The hints of incense in the base.

    This is one of the best designer scents to come along in a long time, and it's just so damn wearable. A definite winner, and one that will surely continue to get panned on BN by those who write off a scent without even giving it a single full and proper wearing, or those who write off anything with less than Montale like projection or the (syrup)-vat-like depth of so many of Lutens' confectionaries.
    Really well written! Thanks for the review.

    I find Givenchy Gentleman to be a versatile juice.

    Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    I love the smell and even the themes that they claim inspired and influenced it. It has a great, old, natural, masculine charm and doesn't smell perfume heavy to a bothersome degree. Just plain fantastic.

    Cool water from like 16-20. That was my everything. Cheap, lasted long, smelled nice, and didn't smell 'old'. Now its probably Creed's GIT. It just works for so many things from casual trip to the supermarket to black tie fancy dinner events.

    Ha, I can imagine your friend's response! Also, you've been here since 2006 yet this is your 9th post? Where have you been...

    Terre d'Hermes and Green Irish Tweed are eminently wearable, as others have mentioned.

    I find Rochas Man and MFK Lumiere Noire pour Homme to be good all-around scents. Rochas Man is one of most versatile gourmands I've tried (can't think of any gourmands more wearable).

    And Lumiere Noire PH has this lightness that is great during the day and in warm weather, yet it's also romantic, warm and elegant - perfect for evenings and cooler weather.
