    I would go with Burberry Brit, but if you want to do something bolder, Dior Fahrenheit might be a good choice. Good luck, and above all, have fun!

    I'm torn on this one. I would think you wouldn't be the only one wearing Code, AdG, Play, or Le Male if you wore any of them. I think I'll still choose Le Male anyway, along with L'homme or 212 (one of my personal favorites). I would also think La Nuit de L'homme would be a good choice if you had it.

    I like Gucci Envy's subtlety on a formal event night. There are fine scents in your collection, and all that are already suggested on this thread will work well for sure. If I needed to pick for ME though, in your position I would go with Envy.

    Tom Ford for Men smells classy and sophisticated, Prada Amber pour Homme would also go well with a suit.

    Ask what your date's wearing, so you compliment her.

    Your suit/her dress and your boutonniere/her corsage are designed to match, so why not your fragrances?

    I'd say L'homme, if you can get to a sephora and spray on some Nuit de l'homme you'd be even better off. Have fun!

    good idea, maybe she should smell the different colognes and see what she likes best

    From this list I'd go with Burberry London. A lot of the others are pretty common and may show up on the other guys. If you really want to be unique get hold of some Eau Sauvage, Van Cleef & Arpels or Aramis.

    Cool Re: Recommendations for prom

    If all the young ladies who attended the Yale prom were laid end to end, no one would be the least surprised.

    Sorry, I've no recommendations from your list but I just had to quote Dorothy Parker.

    Have Fun

    Gucci Envy or Versace Man would probably be my choices out of the two. I'd probably wind up with the Versace Man if I had to choose.

    proms get really sweaty so le male might turn gross on you, but thats just based on how your skin reacts with it. If you havent ever sweated with it, I wouldnt risk it.

    for you, i like Armani code and YSL l'homme
