    Lightbulb Another one for University

    It's good to be back here again.

    You can check out my wardrobe and suggest pretty much anything.
    As I am quite satisfied by the amount of fragrances I currently have I feel I don't really LOVE any of them. Though some of them I've had only since Summer so I don't know how they project during Winter as they are a bit heavy. So I'm still looking for my signature scent. Can you help me out?

    Something that would drive (young)girls crazy but not too overwhelming. Appropriate for work too.

    Having looked at your fragrance wardrobe I would suggest the following:

    Mitsouko
    Cologne du 68
    Habit Rouge Beau Cavalier
    Coromandel

    Burberry Brit - chick magnet

    Azzaro Chrome - fresh and comforting

    Body Kouros - as I think you miss something "dark" in your collection

    I'm going to try out Mitsouko, Burberry Brit and Body Kouros. Thanks for your help.

    Suppressor, I do miss something dark. Encre Noire? I might like a spicy but then again, sweet scent with great longevity.

    Well you gotta try Encre Noire.
    Maybe try Gucci Envy for something spicy. And Verry irresistible by Givenchy.

    My ultimate spicy and sweet perfume is l'Air du Desert Marocain by Andy Tauer.

    But if I were you, focus on Body Kouros.

    I have a mini bottle of Gucci Envy, decent stuff.

    Last time I tried Terre it was a hot Summer day. Back then I smelled something metallic? Perhaps I like it more now. Body Kouros is on my next to buy list. Rochas Man aka butt plug kinda hurts my manliness but maybe I give it a chance nevertheless.

    Have you tried Euphoria Intense by CK? It's a sweet fragrance. At first it's very sweet on the first spray then after 15-20, on my skin it turns to a sweet floral kinda scent. It's very nice and I usually wear it when I go out Bar/Club. Same with Pure Malt by TM. I like this one a lot too, has a boozey gourmand scent to it. I also enjoy Tokyo by Kenzo, I use this for work and play purposes. Very versatile.

    Try them out, I think you'd might enjoy all three.

    LOL! I don't associate it with a butt plug.
    Don't let the bottle hold you back. Girls seem to love this one on a guy.

    ..if they like the face, too.

    After hearing three HOT 20 yo girls complimenting a guy who was wearing axe in a bar I don't really trust what women do find sexy or not. On some level I think the words " you smell great" are just an opening for conversation just as "hi how are you", not always though.

    Or maybe this is just me trying to rationalize why I'm rarely getting compliments. Yes, propably that.

    Order some Fierce from the Abercrombie and Fitch store in Milan or London. You'll be the Pied Piper of women in Helsinki

    I don't think it is possible anymore to order through their webstore (outside the US).
    You'll have to buy it in the London store or here on Basenotes -> there are people selling it

    Update: I have to admit that Fierce just might be the..worst blindbuy ever.

    Update2: Did some minor updates to my wardrobe. Am I smelling good?

    Some good stuff, especially the YSLs. I'd say you lack a woody/spicy oriental though, save for M7.

    L'instant de Guerlain! The EDT is more versatile, but I prefer the Extreme version.

    Sorry to hear that! I don't like Fierce that much either but it really is a fragrance that most young women seem to love. Have you tried Le Male and Rochas Man? They are similar to Body Kouros and Pi. If you want to try gourmands start with A*Men (hit or miss), L'instant and Dior Homme Intense. Two other sweet classics you might like are Bvlgari Black and Dior Fahrenheit.

    Yes, though I have only tried Fierce once. That was at work and on the way back to home I noticed a lot of people staring me in the bus, not in a good way. I still haven't tried butt plug but will later. Le Male I don't want to even try. I'm afraid I might like it and it would be a waste of my money as it is extremely popular here.

    Dior Homme Intense is something I have wanted to try out for ages. I have the original which I found to smell like lipstick. However I've bought most of my fragrances during the Spring/Summer so I'm not sure yet how they're going to project when it gets colder.
