    Default Are there any frags with good sillage and elegant, soft smell??

    It's easy to find sillage monsters that fills the whole room, but they use to have smells that maybe can't be defined as refined: you know, A*Men, Le Male, Chrome, Ambre SUltan... they can pummel any "sillage allergic" nose.

    I have a friend that doesn't like strong smells, or any significant smell at all, so i'm looking for a frag with good sillage (u know, i don't want to waste money in something that even i can't smell) but with refined, soft smell... don't know if you get the idea, but i'm willing to hear your recommendations.

    ThankS!

    Chrome is a pretty soft and elegant fragrance to my nose. From my experience, Chrome has good longevity and sillage, but I personally don't call it a sillage monster.

    Le Male's longevity and sillage is even better, but still and pardon my language, it's a pussy compared to some Montale's.

    I was going to include Jaipur as well. Then I thought it would be too strong.

    I really really like Montale's Queen Aoud Roses. It's very soft and elegant, but as with most montale's, has great silage and longevity. It's somewhat feminine though.

    silver mountain water perhaps but still a tough shot, i would say find a fresh designer frag and see what you can find. most strong sillage frags are not fresh or elegant or soft lol.

    If you'd consider (expensive) niche, Reflection by Amouage fits the bill.

    First that came to my mind was Guerlain L'instant pour homme extreme/edp. Maybe Musc Ravageur with very careful trigger/small amount would fit the bill also.
    Please check out my selling list:

    YSL Opium homme EDP, Rive Gauche pour homme, Villoresi Uomo, Dior Homme vintage, Body Kouros, Guerlain homme intense etc.

    Moschino Uomo?

    Nice spicy lemony florals. Elegant, vibrant, not harsh at all. On me great sillage and longevity.

    Mauboussin Homme EDP is as elegant and refined as it gets, yet it is has a very tactful projection/sillage.

    Good sillage but soft? I think some women's EDP would be good: Chanel 19, Stella.

    For niche fragrances, I would suggest: Gris Clair, Feminite du Bois, Geranium pour Monsieur.
