    Default Suggestions for my collection? Is it time for a powerhouse?

    Hi , Im looking for something with a professional feel to it for an office environment that people notice but its not overwhelming. I usually spray once to chest, once to adams apple and pat some behind my ears. I find that even my GF cannot smell my frags from 1ft away after an hour.

    Would it be safe to go with something with a good sillage like Kourus ? Or something else to balance my collection?

    Considering:
    Derby by Guerlain
    Azzaro pour Homme
    Eau de Guerlain
    Bois du Portugal
    New York by Parfums de Nicolaï
    Burberry London for men
    Body Kouros

    Current Collection:
    M7
    Vetiver Guerlain
    Terre D'Hermes
    Davidoff Echo - gift

    Kouros is too strong for the office unless you've had it on for 4 hours before you going into work.

    Burberry London is best in cool/cold weather. Not really great in hot weather.

    PdN New York and BdP are pretty similar, with PdN being a lot less $. Both are strong, kind of old school powdery and spicy, long lasting, and you'll either love it or really hate it.

    Wearing something in the office that's too strong is risky. You can end up being "that perfume guy". Strong sillage is better for the clubs, or even on a date.

    For work, I recommend

    YSL Live Jazz (cheap, long lasting, good stuff)
    Nasomatto Silver Musk (good sillage, lasts a long time, expensive)
    Creed Erolfa, Creed Aventus, Green Irish Tweed (all very nice, kind of expensive)

    I vote for Green Irish Tweed. It'll work with a white shirt and tie or T shirt and Jeans, hot weather, cold weather...

    When someone talks about "an office friendly fragrance", I equate that to something quite boring and bland - and not anything I want in my collection. IMO you can wear any fragrance you listed to the office, including Kouros. You just don't want to over-apply anything.

    I haven't tried Body Kouros, but I've seen comparisons to Bulgari Black. I recently sampled that one, and it is a good smokey vanilla scent. Also, Fahrenheit is still a great one, as long as it isn't too hot where you work.

    Thanks guys. i ordered Azzaro - pour Homme and my next purchase will probably be one of the following:
    Burberry London for men
    Body Kouros
    YSL Jazz

    The others are a bit out of my price range (expensive shipping to Aus)

    A great office scent is Ricci Club, the Guerlain eau de colognes are ok but they last for a very short time and would have to reapply constantly, another very elegant office scent are Fendi Uomo, Armani PH but be sure to spray sparingly, also be sure to check out Monsieur Balmain.

    Azzaro is very pleasant , in this kind of family , you also have " Drakkar noir " from Guy Laroche
