    Lauder for Men springs to mind. My absolute favourite formal scent, but way too rich and exotic for everyday use.


    Also Aramis, Aramis JHL, Chanel Allure Homme and Dior Homme.

    +1 for Eau Sauvage. But surprised to see Amouage Gold mentioned. I'll add Cravache and Futur by Robert Piguet, New York by Parfums de Nicolai and Opium Pour Homme EDT.

    For me there are two types of formal - business formal and pleasure formal.

    Business formal is cerebral, cold, subtle, clean, serious. I think fresh, woody, green, soapy, metallic, mineralic notes. Bvlgari PH, Platinum Egoiste, Grey Vetiver, for example.

    Pleasure formal is mysterious, rich, smart, complex, seductive. I think woody, spicy, oriental, mossy, smokey notes. Sycomore, Chanel PH, PdN New York, for example.

    Probably my signature - Encre Noir on the bottom, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver on the top. When I layer the two, I seem to have a circle of people wanting to talk with me.

    Formal...that doesn't describe me very well. But when I want to be noticed in a good way and in formal environments I tend to Guerlain Heritage, and Dunhil for men. They remind me of hugging my grandfather when I was a kid, or those gentlemen who wear suits to work.

    Though I have never used them in a formal setting, Egoiste and Pour Monsieur both strike me as very formal fragrances.

    On the other hand, Creed Millesime Imperial is currently my favourite formal scent to wear casual. Sort of like 'dressing up' when you are dressing down.
