    Adonis made a great suggestion. Bvlgari Pour Homme is good stuff, albeit understated.

    am I the only one who thought #2 should have been Burberry London? or I'll +1 to M7.

    BTW, 15% off isn't that big of a sale. (I believe) there's a basenotes coupon for exactly that as it is. Parfum1.com currently has 20% off for example and some of theirs are cheaper too.

    got this one yesterday as a gift from a friend, it is not original scent, but it is very nice spicy oriental imho, definitely for colder weather and evening. There are much better frags out there, though.

    btw. try http://www.cheapsmells.com/ you won't be sorry, I wasn't, cause I get them there practically half the price that they actually cost in stores in Croatia!

    You can also try www.escentual.com and they are based in the UK. Mind you I have never bought from them before, so I can't say much about them.

    As for a designer summer scent, I think you can also try L'eau d'Issey pour Homme. It might be a little too popular in Europe though...

    Burberry London was one of my ideas as you can see above. Would you recommend that over GPH2? Thank you very much for that link. Unfortunately no DH there.

    50ml of DH and GPH2 would cost 97 euros ordered from Escentual.com and 79 euros from CheapSmells.

    Any coupons for CheapSmells? I couldn't find any. If not then I'm propably just going to take a risk here and buy.

    I want to thank you all for your thoughts and ideas.

    Decided to go with Dior Homme 50ml and Gucci Pour Homme II 50 ml delivered from CheapSmells.com for £62.

    Next buy will propably be the Burberry London(+ Voile de Fleur by Tom Ford).

    I LOVE GPHII! You can't go wrong with it. You could try L'Instant de Guerlain perhaps? Or maybe L'eau Par Kenzo eau Indigo. It's somewhat similar to L'Homme (both use ginger) but deeper, darker and less sweet.

    Thanks. L'Instant has some good reviews here. Couldn't find the latter one though?

    What do you guys think about my list? Is Burberry London something you could imagine wearing today?

    Burberry London is nice - but kind of "just nice," like the girl you dated who everyone said was "such a nice girl," but you really wanted her slutty, more buxom best friend. . .

    so far the ones you've bought are relatively heavy handed. Like Dior Homme and Black Orchid are rather thick. I'd say something like Bvlgari Aqua is going to serve you well for a warm-hot daytime. I'm not sure if you've got taht one covered yet. Also L'eau D'Izzey is the same. I'll also put Live Jazz in that pile. so I would choose one of those three. All are relatively well received, pretty good frags and inoffensive. pretty safe blind buys.
    My opinion, I liked Live Jazz but didn't find it lasted more then a couple of hours. Aqua is quite nice, and Izzey is pretty solid.

    I think Rive Gauche is great but it's a definite try before you buy frag.
    I'd lump Bvlgari Black and Black Orchid together for some reason. Both sort of weird ones that may or may not hit. If you can pull them off and others don't seem offended, then sure, but both are VERY much try before you buy.

    I'll put both M7 and London together, some similarity I suppose. I think they both have some sort of cherry or tobacco note or something. Neither of these are groundbreakers, just good solid frags with a little depth/development. I find both rather heavy, like I wouldn't wear them in spring and summer, more sort of fall/winter and evening IMO.

    Gucci Pour Homme II in my opinion is quite light.

    I do not own the original Black Orchid nor do I want to buy it. I was talking about Voile de Fleur which I suppose should be in some way more appropriate during Summer. I wasn't shocked at all to say the least.

    I sampled L'eau D'Izzey yesterday and thought it was ok. Definitely something I might consider to wear although it is hugely popular. But that doesn't matter as I rarely smell anything on others.

    Live Jazz is so cheap and will be among my next babies.

    So, that leaves me with Voile de Fleur, Live Jazz and L'eau D'Izzey. Am I going to end up with them all? Propably.

    My advice is rather spending money on buying designer frags blind like that, why dont you buy samples of BOTH designer and niche ?? =)

    I'm sick of designer frags now :P May be im a niche snob, may be niche is just that much better.
