    Default Help, scent for going out

    Hi all !!
    I'm thinking my next purchase, i want something for going out at night, something casual, alluring.

    So key words:
    -sexy
    -night
    -casual

    I made this little list for the poll: versace the dreamer, polo explorer.
    You can give another option
    Thanks in advance

    Those are the only two choices? Are you in Montevideo? Have you been here?

    The poll is about what you think is best, polo explorer or the dreamer.
    And if you could give me the name of another frag who fit the bill, even better!!

    sorry, maybe i wasn´t clear

    A.) Tobacco Vanille, Tom Ford
    B.) New Harlem, Bond No. 9 New York

    I would wear B.) if I didn't have an established relationship with the significant other since choice A.) is slightly risky as it has a whispy smoke note that creeps up occasionally which might make them think you smoke a pipe. Also, the projection of choice A.) is closer to the body, but it has very nice longevity.

    Both meet all 3 of your requirements with equal balance, in my opinion.

    Great for clubbing, but not distinct enough. Try something sweet, like La Nuit De L'Homme, JPG Le Male, Dior Homme Intense, Paco Rabanne 1 Million etc..

    I just picked up Explorer on sale for 12 bucks! 2.5 oz too. Anyways, ya it's not a very versatile one, it may be hard to wear. It's definitley unique though, so props for that. Projects nicely and lasts long, and has a very fitting name. As far as it being sexy.. well that's debatable. Night? Ehh not really. Casual? It can be if that's you're thing. I definitley wouldn't blind buy this at a retail price, even if you've tested it on paper, try it on your skin first.

    The Dreamer is always a great choice, great projection with a little amount. Sexy indeed, but probably not to a younger crowd. Good for night and casual if you don't apply too much. The Dreamer can be very versatile if you wear it right.

    As for other stuff, I'm gonna go ahead and mention one of the greats -- Burberry London. You really can't go wrong with this. There are very few people that flat out hate this stuff which is good since it's so popular and well known. Sexy, casual and night.. absolutely. I also gotta recommend the famous Le Male. The only problem I have with LM that others have as well, is when you wear it too often, it loses that special delicious smell due to olfactory fatigue. Finally I gotta mention John Varvatos. Fitting of all the requirements: sexy, casual and night. Projection and longevity can be a problem for some though, and as many have mentioned, sometimes this stuff projects well, while other days it may sit very close to the skin for the entire time.

    I could name a few others, but I tried to keep it more mainstream and common.

    Why limit yourself to The Dreamer and Explorer when you can have A*MEN, 1 Million, Body Kouros, Boss Bottled ?

    Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance.

    Polo Explorer's so weak it could only work for going out the living room, methinks.

    What do you mean by "going out"? Based on age and lifestyle, going out can mean very different things. I know that for me going out at night is a very different activity from when I was 19.
