    Default What is your go-to fragrance for each of these situations...

    Office (or School for younger BN'ers): Something that smells like confidence and success, but not too strong or offensive.

    Romantic: Something seductive that will impress your date, wife, girlfriend or perhaps future girlfriend.

    Casual: Something comfortable for hanging out with friends/family that matches your style and personality.

    Feel free to elaborate. Specify your age if you want. You can name more than one go-to fragrance for each or maybe the same fragrance for all three. Add your own situations too. No rules.

    In my case, my fragrance choices aren't determined by situation. Whatever I reach for on any given day would have to suffice regardless of the occasion.

    Office: I usually use this to test out my new samples etc that I'm going to review. However if I'm not I usually go with Polo Blue or L'homme. Once weather get's warmer I'll be going to my love of Original Vetiver by Creed.

    Romantic: I've had a lot of success with La Nuit de L'homme, despite all the hate here for it. If it's cold enough, Pure Malt.

    Casual: I have to many for these situations. Most of my collection can/is worn casually. I rotate depending on my mood and the weather.

    I have pretty versatile fragrances in my wardrobe. As a result, they all work in most situations. If you dress appropriately and carry yourself well, most frags will work for most occasions. There are exceptions - both in terms of setting and individual scents - but by and large, you make the frag work for you through your attire and attitude.

    Regards,
    T

    My Wardrobe:
    Yves St. Laurent Live Jazz
    Comme des Garcons Vettiveru
    Terre d'Hermes
    Guerlain Vetiver
    Lubin Vetiver Itasca

    Endymion, Opus 1870,Cravache, Lui

    Romantic: Something seductive that will impress your date.
