    Question Looking for an elegant day wear suggestion

    I easily get headaches with fragrance, I need something Fresh, Elegant and which can't be found on every third man in the street. Any advice?

    Gucci PH II is fresh, elegant and ideal as daily wear.

    Creed Millésime Impérial might do the trick...

    I find Millésime Impérial to be fresh, elegant and somewhat aquatic. Silver Mountain Water would also be an option because I find it similar in style to MI. Fruity? Maybe a little but I mainly get aquatic vibes from MI, SMW and Erolfa. Erolfa however has almost zero sillage or longevity for me.

    Third vote for Habit Rouge. I'll also throw in Terre d'Hermes & Mugler Cologne.

    Funny, I find Habit Rouge EDT very heavy.

    I think Chanel pour Monsieur would fit it much better.
    Loewe pour homme is also great, and is rarely talked about.

    Do you have a Perfumemania, Perfume Max, etc nearby? Those type of stores usually carry HR.

    I agree. While I certainly feel it is elegant, it comes across heavy to me.

    On me, the Habit Rouge eau de toilette is light. The EDP and parfum, OTOH, are much heavier. I guess it is all in the nose of the wearer.

    Yes, it might do the trick for 3 hours.

    Try these:
    Paco Rabanne XS Pour Homme
    Green Irish Tweed
    Uomo? Moschino

    Love HR, but some find this light and some find it heavy. I think it's a bit off the path for Esquire. It is certainly elegant and now through not being a mainstream contemporary best seller, highly distinctive.

    I think Millesime Imperiale might be more on target. It has an infamous melon note at the top, but the overall experience of wearing it is more aquatic than fruity.

    Recalling some earlier threads though, HR is something that should be on Esquire's sample list.
    Sorry your locale isn't conducive to in store sample, Esquire. You should bite the bullet and purchase some samples. Not sure what the best source for that in UK would be.

    I think it does, in..........Jil Sander Sun Men

    Not an aquatic, but the Amouage Dia Men suggestion above sounds good. Dia will not overwhelm in any condition.

    Chanel Pour Monsig. is an excellent call, and if a bit widely available. GIT works, and though I like MI, lately, I have smelled more aquatic than melon in it. When it was more melon, I really thought it different, but now, it seems more aquatic and thus, more mainstream. Certainly well liked and inoffensive, but not as much elegant as maybe appropriate. Tiffany for Men works

    Tiffany for Men is excellent. Better than CPM to me. Both developed by the same nose I believe.

    Elegant is an understatement for this one.
