    Default Your Wardrobe - Why/When You Wear It!

    I've seen quite a few wardrobe critique posts so why not condense it and get to the root. Everyone's taste is different so putting down your wardrobe and why/when you wear it seems more logical and a better way to 'critique'.

    For example, mine...

    A*Men Pure Malt - going out winter scent that's romantic and mature. I like how blended it is, the patchouli and malted whiskey note.
    Abercrombie Fierce - year round fragrance when I want to get noticed, sexy crowd pleaser. It's quality, sharp, woody and leaves an amazing scent trail.
    Bond No. 9 Fire Island - fun unique beach fragrance for summer. The best beachy fragrance I've smelled, lasts and projects and always reminds me of the beach.
    Bond No. 9 New Haarlem - delicious night time winter time gourmand, fits well for a jazz club or any chill place like a cafe. When I feel laid back and enjoying the finer things in life at night. Smells so delicious I'd like to taste it
    Burberry London - my favorite fall fragrance, very festive, evokes memories and girls love it. Reminds me of pumpkin pie, christmas and thanksgiving.
    Fuel For Life - unique attention getting club fragrance. I love the unique raspberry lavender note and it leaves a strong trail that cuts through a lot of things.
    Grey Vetiver - Love sniffing it, feels formal and sophisticated yet modern. Often wear it to work.
    Gucci Pour Homme II - perfect year round and any time where subtly is key like a first date, school and especially in fall.
    Hypnotic Poison - Sexy, seductive gourmand for the winter and loud enough to get attention at club/bar, for when I'm 'hunting'
    Infusion D'Homme - For when I feel sharp and dressing fashionable and it works very well at work, feels clean.
    La Nuit De L'Homme - sexy attention getter, for when I want to get noticed. Never fails. Sexy time fragrance!
    M7 - Perfect for a formal night out, I call it the cougar catcher lol. For when I'm feeling bold
    Mugler Cologne - Subtle, fresh and invigorating. Love it right out of a shower or before the gym. Reminds me of Irish Spring soap and that freshly showered feeling.
    Paris Hilton Man - Fruity, fun and flirty. When I feel casual, spontaneous and energetic
    Rochas Man - Perfect for romantic occasions and very seductive and sensitive. It's not overpowering yet strong enough to get noticed. It's soft and very pleasing. Reminds me of a lot of first dates since I've worn on first dates quite a bit and the ones where I ended up dating the girl for a while.
    Imagine there were no hypothetical situations.

    Default Re: Your Wardrobe - Why/When You Wear It!

    A*Men Pure Malt - sexy sweet daily/evening romantic and clubing scent for winter. I love sweet patchouli on this and it reminds me Angel for women. Currently it's summer and I use it just for my joy before going to bed but I plan to make it my signature during winter (hopefully with backup bottles it will last me few years)

    Acqua Di Gio - my office scent for summer. Its almost impossible to overspray with it and except of synthetic opening its very easy for your nose. I wont buy another bottle of it tho, because its bit feminine for my taste and there are plenty aquatics to try.

    Armani Code
    - everybody loves it.. except of me. Its not bad, but nothing that would wow me. I sometime wear it to office and I consider it being better daily than evening scent. I would sell it but I have good memories about awesome sex with 1 beautiful lady when I wore it.. (No I didnt get her on Code . It was actually Gucci II that she loved on me ) so it will stay in my wardrobe.

    Black Suede Touch - sexy peppery vanilla. Reminds me lot YSL La Nuit L'Homme. Its IMO evening scent for MATURE man, any weather and has signature potential... but I have other favourites for this events so I use it mostly just before going to bed.

    Body Kouros - sex in the bottle. 1 spray and you are set for next 10 hours in summer, 2 sprays and you are good for whole evening in winter. I use it when I want seduce with fragrance.

    Bulgari Aqua pour Homme
    - my entry into world of fragrances that was also my signature for half year. Original, fantastic opening.. has bad habit to turn sour on my skin so I use it rarely now. Its my choice for rainy days in work.

    Dior Homme - sweet, luxurious, elegant. I tried to wear it daily but its too special for casual office wear so I keep it for formal and semi formal clothes.

    Encre Noire - wow. This is so special. Signature fragrance potential. If I had pick just 2 fragrances for my wardrobe it would be Pure Malt for cold days and Encre Noire for rest.. Sexy, masculine, outstanding longetivity (2 sprays on chest lasts easy 12+ hours on me).

    Gucci PH II - If i had to pick just 1 fragrance to wear year around it wouldnt be Pure Malt or Encre Noire.. but this. Its me in the bottle. Gentle, warm yet refreshing. My office scent for spring.

    Nightflight - masculine old school fresh fragrance (ok I didnt smell many old school fragrances but it has such vibe to me). I use it with shirt and short trousers when I want smell good without making any special statement or for sport. It will be my summer choice once bottle of ADG is gone.

    Pi - this 1 had lot of wearing during last winter. My daily winter office fragrance. Unoffensive, comfortable, long lasting.

    Rochas Man - I often describe it as coffee with dirty flowers. I was huge fan of it till I smelled Pure Malt... Now I plan to use it just sometime as office fragrance in winter.

    CK One - I loved it first, now it smells feminine and synthetic to me. My mother uses it more than me. Its obvious summer choice.

    Knize Ten, Armani Eau pour Homme, even Chanel Antaeus- sheer formality, with a twist, the kind of frags I want to wear when I want to feel elegant, yet without giving up a certain note of artistic individuality

    Versace Blue Jeans, Guerlain Vetiver, Gucci Envy for Men- informality, again with a twist, when I want to feel relaxed and pleasantly refreshed, yet without giving up a certain touch of style

    Francesco Smalto pour Homme, Horizon by Guy Laroche, even Ungaro III- frags which I love, even if just for the reason that they are so unique and creative, that they evade any predictable sort of description

    4711, Tabac Original- apparently, mass market frags, but with a certain cleanliness and timeless appeal , which makes them almost ideal for uncomplicated everybody wear

    Bulgari pour Homme Soir - warm weather, romatic occasions
    Chanel Pour Monsieur - warm weather, sometimes as my day scent but I see it fitting a formal occasion
    Azzaro Chrome - defintely a casual warm weather scent....sort of my "throw something on - summer" scent
    Dolce & Gabbana pour Homme - not really sure....like it but don't love it. Won't be renewing once my near-empty bottle runs out
    L'Occitane Eau des Baux - see this as a great fall scent, but can be worn in summer. Different occasions, leaning to the casual...wear when I work my weekend bartending job
    Grey Flannel - rainy dreary day
    Aramis Havana - warm weather, day or night....like to wear this one when I am going to the track, or otherwise gambling
    Kenzo pour Homme - daytime scent, warmer weather, especially spring
    Divine L'Homme Sage - romantic wear, colder weather
    Creed Millésime Impérial - special occasions during warmer weather...going to a beach bar/pool party
    Cartier Must de Cartier pour Homme - winter, night out, romantic wear
    Chanel Platinum Égoïste - one of my favorites. day/night/romantic very flexible....smells classy to me, especially like wearing while playing poker tournaments
    Rochas Man - cooler weather, nights out with or prowling for younger women (college age)
    Versace The Dreamer - really not sure...maybe fall weather...have heard romantic use, but not sure
    Vicky Tiel Ulysse - occasional warm weather casual scent

    If anybody has recommendations or suggestion for a better use, I'm open to them!

    Default Re: Your Wardrobe - Why/When You Wear It!

    Burberry Brit - fancy dinner date, any kind of formal event
    Pi Givenchy - just like Brit, this is a warm cozy scent that i use for candle light dinners or when i make a girl dinner or soemthing like that
    Bvlgari BLV Notte - any kind of formal event where i need to dress nice, but isnt as much of a secret weapon as Brit and Pi. i will also use this for just going out with friends if we are going somewhere nice
    L'Instant De Guerlain(will get this one by tomorrow)- I will probably put this in the same class of Brit and Pi for me. A very formal scent that i will wear when im in a more sophisticated, classy, formal event. whether it be a fancy diner date or something else. Probably going to be my suit and tie fragrance.
    Kiton Men, Boss Selection- These are suit and tie fragrances, but i also use it as a "watever" fragrance. i could use it whenever i want to smell good at any occasion.
    Aqua Di Gio, Le Male Summer frgrance, B*Men, Givenchy Pour Homme- to me, whenever im going somewhere, just stepping out of the house, going out with friend. going to dinner with buddies where im not neccesarily dying to impress someone, these are what i whip out

    p.s. i wore givenchy pour homme right before i stepped out the hosue to go to dinner with my buddies. while i was walking out, a female was walking the opposite direction to go to her apartment and she stopped and said "ohh! wow u smell good"

    Nice list. That would make a great video for your youtube channel or did you scrap that? Also Rochas Man is on sale at perfumania.com for $24 for the 50ml and $34 for the 100ml and they have free shipping.

    Adidas Moves - Nice fresh, cheap and totally inoffensive, Great for after working out
    Aqua Nautilus - I love this little known gem, I wear it for a night out or date, despite all the expensive fragrances I have this one without a doubt gets me the most compliments, I always get told what a sexy scent it is.
    Cereus No 4 - This one is nice but honestly the only reason I ever bought it is because I came across it for ten bucks, can't beat something being over 90% off and full
    Creed Bois du Portugal - A very sophisticated fragrance that requires a suit and tie in my opinion, I love it but I'll never own a large bottle because I don't think I'd ever use it all
    Chanel Pour Monsieur - Slightly formal fragrance that just says good taste in my opinion even if it's not for everyone.
    Serge Lutens Chergui - I don't think I have a certain time I set this one aside for, but I love wearing it, smells amazing and is one of the few gourmand fragrances I've ever tried and loved
    Escada Homme - Love the boozy feel of this one, great for cool weather and dirt cheap for how good it smells
    Creed Green Irish Tweed - Always my scent of choice for a date, I have yet to meet a non-basenoter that does not love this fragrance, has the absolute perfect mix of masculine and sensual
    Creed Himalaya - Great for cooler weather, I love to wear it any day the air feels crisp and fresh outside
    Diptyque Philosykos - My go to day time summer and spring fragrance, fresh and beautiful
    Xerjoff Uden - One of the most divine and unique smelling fragrances I have yet to encounter, I don't know how it's possible but it feels completely fresh and gourmand all at the same time. I rarely wear this one because of the cost, even though I managed to snag it for half off :-D
    Creed Windsor - My favorite fragrance of all time, this is one of the best smells I've ever encountered in my life, period. Words can't describe how much I love Windsor, I'd marry it if I could lol. Figures it would be a ******* limited edition. It's so versatile as well, you could wear it with a suit or on a date and it would fit the role of professional or sensual perfectly.

    Still tons I wish were in my wardrobe but I just can't afford them right now unfortunately.
