    Yes it's that all important, life changing, sweat n' stress inducing decision that we all have to make at least once a year, which frags to take on hols

    I am mid twenties, going to spain(hot weather) and of my collection i am considering any 3 of the following;

    1. Bvlgari PH Soir

    2. A&F Fierce

    3. Gucci PH II

    4. Guerlain L'Instant

    5. Le Male

    6. Creed MI

    7. Rochas Man

    8. Victorias Secret VS for Him

    Im travelling light and don't want to look wierd having half my luggage as frags.
    If you only had these frags, which 3 would you take on holiday to a hot country?

    I appreciate any input, as always

    I'd say you just need to bring MI and Bvlgari pH Soir. MI would be a perfect day scent and pH Soir would be perfect for evenings. If you need to add a clubbing scent, then you can maybe add L'Instant. Better yet, pick up Dior Homme Intense when you're in Europe!

    Edit: Ooops, just realized that you're British, so you can get Dior Homme Intense at home too. Scrap my last sentence :P

    Buy some small plastic atomizers and fill them up with as many as you want to bring. Then you are not limited to your choices, and also don't have to carry full bottles with you.

    I agree.

    But if that doesn't work for you, take one. And for me, that would be MI.

    I'm familiar with half of your choices. Yeah, you could take them all with small 3 ml atomizers.
    I'd probably say definitely take Victoria Secret Very Sexy. Maybe the Rochas Man as well.

    Leave 1,2, & 8 behind. Take the others.

    Plus another one for MI, but I think L'Instant could do well on a warm Spanish day, too.

    If I had to choose from your 8 frags, I would bring 2 bottles. One for the day and one for the evening. And then I will buy 1 or more bottles in Spain so that everytime I would spray these frag/frags (the ones bought in Spain) I would always remember my trip there.

    Day: Creed MI
    Evening: Rochas Man or Bvlgari PH Soir

    1 Bvlgari pH Soir, 4 L'Instant de Guerlain pH, 7 Rochas Man. Just personal preference; as for day and evening, I would mix them all up, even if the Bvlgari is called Soir...

    I would not take anything and shop for some unavailable fragrances wether in the Duty Free shops or in Spain...

    Thanks for the tips!

    I don't have atomisers and don't really have time to buy some, the only thing that worries me about L'Instant is the hot weather, it could get cloying out there no?!

    I think the MI and Soir suggestions are good, i'll take them, still undecided on # 3 though.
    Thanks for the suggestions =D

    I absolutely agreee with the MI and Soir recommendations. I would also take Gucci PH 2 - to me it's a warm weather scent that I think would work day or night. Also I have heard A&F Fierce is similar to Chanel Platinum Egoiste. Not sure, but if that's the case, I would take that (as I would take the Chanel over the Gucci)
