    Default "Me in the bottle"

    Out of your wardrobe, what fragrance suits your person (personality + look + style) best. The one that you could actually call "Me in the bottle".

    For me it have to be Gucci PH II closely followed by Givenchy Pi. Both being nice, inteligent, relaxed, elegant, unofenssive and not overly masculine (ok they are rather feminine lol).
    TOP 5 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Creed Aventus
    3. Creed Millesime Imperial
    4. Lalique Encre Noire
    5. Azzaro Chrome Sport

    TOP 5 cold weather:

    1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. Dior Homme Intense
    4. Dior Homme
    5. Byredo 1996

    Montale - Red Vetyver or CDG - Artek/Standard
    I am not sure why, these just fit my mood most often. I love the smell of cedar and spice.
    I feel comfortable wearing both in any occasion. People compliment me regularly when I wear them.

    The more i think of it, the more i realize A*Men IS me in a bottle. Starts out rough, loud, even annoying. *if im comfortable with the people around me, i can get obnoxious... fast lol* but as it dries down, it gets sweeter, comforting, even kind of smokey *anyone who Really knows me knows im just a pushover who would love nothing more than sit on a couch with that special someone and wrap up in a blanket by a cozy fire*

    The bottle...CAUSE IM A STAR DUH!
    The black outline with a bright blue star as the core can actually be metaphorical for my outlook on life. I come off as EXTREMELY cynical to the world, but the truth is i want nothing more than for everyone just to chill out and live in peace (star of hope within oblivion?...idk i get overly poetic late at night lol)

    Hmmm... My favorite is Amouage Dia Woman, but I think it's not necessarily "me in a bottle"...

    The honor probably goes to the unisex leather chypre Nicolai Vie de Chateau. Versatile, warm, austere, classic, tasteful, and a bit old fashioned.

    Jil Sander Woman III is the other. Same kind of thing.

    My style is pretty boring, really. I'm not a colorful or formal dresser, my life gives me no need to be, so black jeans and a dress shirt kind of maxes out my formality level! Looking at what I wear and trying to match a fragrance to it would probably come up with something fresh and inane, not at all my style of fragrance. Frankly I'm just not that into clothes, and feel no need to put on a tux to enjoy a formal fragrance.

    But in terms of personality JAR's Jardenia ... reclusive, introverted, slightly odd, fond of flowers - and cheese!

    I actually had to go and browse through my wardrobe but I think I foundone. By far not my favourite but consistent and a fairly matching description : Minotaure - Paloma Picasso
    I'm full of contrasts, happy go lucky guy with the eventual let down mood swing and inexplicable frustration. Wholeheartedly devoted a lot of things but often slightly planless. Well dressed (not necessarily expensive) and apparently attractive/sexy but angry at myself for caring a bit too much about it. Old fashioned all right with very precise aesthetic ideas of what I consider class and style.
    Overall just about bearable according to g/f and mates

    Jaipur Homme I would have to say it has the mystery of a Moroccan spice market and is opulent like the intricate art of the far east. I am great lover and collector of items from the orient and most of my home decor is influenced by it so this fragrance does fit me.

    Well, the singular word I think that describes me is 'ingenuous'... and while one synonym of that is naive (!), others are simple, plain, honest, deceitless and natural.

    So there can be just one candidate for me in a bottle:

    Kölnisch Wasser
