    Default Your most formal fragrance

    Simple thread: What is your most formal fragrance. This is the fragrance you wear when you want to exude confidence, authority, and most importantly a business-like aura. For me, I would have to go with Amouage Reflection. It just does it for me. Not to loud, not citrucy or fruity, but pleasant, formal, and has great sillage. There's nothing I don't like about it, and it is very fitting for a business setting. Can't go wrong with this one!

    In my wardrobe it would probably be Guerlain's Heritage.

    I always reach for Armani Eau Pour Homme or Boucheron Pour Homme

    I think maybe Tom Ford Grey Vetiver for Spring/Summer. For Fall/Winter, maybe Jack Black Black Mark is quite unique and professional smelling.

    I own several in this category, but when it comes to formal authority, and confidence, I must pick Creed Bois du Portugal.

    Probably Rive Gauche YSL. Pretty versatile scent in that way as it is just as easy to reach for if you just rolled out of bed wearing sweats and want to get bread from the local store.

    I have several that fit the category, but my most formal is probably Chanel pour monsieur.

    Default Re: Your most formal fragrance

    If I need to make an impression, I reach for one of two.....YSL Pour Homme, or PS Fine Cologne (depending on whether it's day or night).....both are strong, assured, and classy IMO.

    Signoricci 2 - by far the most formal of them all

    Others:

    Tiffany
    Chanel pour Monsieur Concentree
    Chanel Antaeus
    Quartz Molyneaux
    Habit Rouge
    Heritage
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Lauder for Men

    Chanel PM, followed, perhaps not surprisingly, by Tiffany PH. Chanel Antaeus is a good choice, but is a bit too over-the-top powerhouse for a formal event IMO. Depends on the event, though.

    Patou PH would easily be my first choice, if only I owned a bottle of that mythical elixir, alas.

    Oh I have a whole bunch:

    Guerlain Heritage - business suit or black tie
    Salvador Dali pour Homme - black tie/tuxedo, it's so dark and mysterious but elegant as hell.
    Blenheim Bouquet - so refined it almost screams blue blood.
    Tiffany for Men - everything Chanel PM should be but isn't
    3rd Man by Caron - elegance in a bottle
    Cartier Santos Concentree - Never fails to draw compliments, feels out of place in jeans and a t-shirt
    Black Walnut by Banana Republic - works well in formal attire
    Equipage by Hermes - more posh than not.
    Ungaro III

    There are probably a few others but I can't be bothered to go upstairs to my cupboards to check!
