    Default Mature Men (45+ ) What are your top 3 fragrances?

    What the title says.

    And blatant crib from the 'Young Men' Thread

    Let's make this thread organized. Please post your current top list in this format:

    Age: 50 / Early 50's (if you don't want to specify your exact age)

    1. Creed Bois de Portugal

    2. Chanel Antaeus

    3. Comme De Garcons 2 Man

    Looking forward to all your responses, Fellow Real Men.

    At this moment they are:

    1. Vintage Tabarome
    2. Bois du Portugal
    3. Neroli Sauvage

    All by Creed. But I am very fickle about top whatever lists. I could name a top 100 fairly easily. Fragrance promiscuity, you might say.

    I'm 54, I've worn fragrances for a long time, and have a very large wardrobe. For me it doesn't get any better than Chanel Pour Monsieur, Dior Eau Sauvage, and Guerlain Vetiver.

    I'm 48...mature? Questionable.
    Fragrances are like an amusement park for me. I like to try just about all the rides out, but now that I've gotten older, I tend not to go on the spinning rides as much. Spining rides might be something like Black XS, Abercrombie, Pi and so on.

    My top 3 as of late:
    Tom Ford-Tobacco Vanille
    Nasomatto-Hindu Grass
    L'Artisan-Dzing!

    I do love Creed Bois de Portugal, but haven't been wearing as much lately. Guerlain Vetiver and Eau Sauvage will be with me for life.

    For me to list just 3 is difficult, so I'll name 3 that I own in my wardrobe. I no longer own Patou Pour Homme, so I'll leave that one out.

    I'll very soon be 54 and sample quite a bit before adding to the drobe.

    I have so many I truly enjoy, I have a tough time picking three. But I'll pick three (uh, four) that I feel are somewhat easier for a man over 45 to wear and revel in being over 45.

    Frankly, many of the frags being listed just illustrate Basenoters of any age just wear whatever they want.

    Only a handful of scents being listed are the ones typically bashed as "too mature."

    1) Harrod's Limited Ed. Oud
    2) Rose 31 Le Labo

    4) Escentric 01

    I had to list 4 to include my favorite fresh scent right now Escentric 01.
    I am 62. I'm not sure how "mature" I am though.

    Kevin said he was 90 last year on an age thread. He is 100 this year. So forgetful, Kevin.

    I don't believe in top three, as my preferences are subject to climate, time of the year, and 100 other circumstances. However, some of my constants are:

    Day time: Eau d'Hermes / Mosieur de Givenchy or a really light classic cologne

    Sunset and later
    : Nicolai New York / Knize Ten / Arabie

    Special Occasions
    : Black Aoud / Mitsouko / Bandit (the original where incense is predominant)

    and... Kouros, of course !

    2. Patou Pour Homme - while it lasts . . .
    3. Santal Noble I have to have a sandalwood at hand.

    Others: Villoresi Uomo, Amouage Homage, and a decent EDC Eau du Coq, Eau de Guerlain, Cologne du Parfumeur, Villoresi AdC . . .

    Dear God how hard is that!!!

    I'll have a stab at it

    Hammam Bouquet
    Cartier Santos Concentree
    Le Labo Rose 31

    But there are about 20 others pushing me for their attention, three is just too small a number. I could swap those three quite happily with

    Caron 3rd Man
    Ungaro III
    Heritage

    Seriously, I could do this for ages and rarely hit the same three.
