why must it be blind?
Thread: Cheapie blind buy
I am going to blind buy one of these fragrance and would like the help of BN to help me choose which one. The choices are:
Aquolina - Blue Sugar for Men (100ml)
Burberry - Weekend for Men (100ml)
Bvlgari - Aqva for Men (30ml)
Versace - Blue Jeans (75ml)
Joop - Jump (100ml)
Armani - Remix for Him (30ml)
Givenchy - Pi (30ml)
Jacamo de Jacamo (100ml)
Jacomo de Jacomo Deep Blue (100ml)
Lacoste - Style In Play (50ml)
The main thing I want to avoid is poor projection/sillage. I like fresh/sweet fragrances (my last purchase was Rochas Man which I love). I am not a fan of buying smaller size bottles but will consider it for the best fragrance.

Don't know about how it would suit the "fresh" part of the equation but if sweet is your thing then by all means join the Blue Sugar fan club. There might be an obscure bottle of a bay rum barbershop splash made with pure cane sugar infused with honey and real bits of gummi bear that might, and it's a small might, be sweeter. But I doubt it.
Out of those, I'd say Pi. I have Weekend that I don't use if you're interested in it...
For the sweetness factor, I would go for Pi, but out of your entire list I would go for Bvlgari Aqua.

Versace Blur Jeans.
People hate on it but it's one of those masculine fragrances that you'd expect Indiana Jones might wear. Not sweet though but smells good.
Bvlgari - Aqva for Men
We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
If you looking for fresh and sweet then go for Joop Jump...
Sweet: Blue Sugar, Blue Jeans, Pi
Fresh and Sweet: Joop Jump
All with good longevity and sillage.
Blue Sugar is so sweet that it will make you Diabetic....
Actually, I forgot to mention, I have smelled Versace Blue Jeans before and I liked it.
I'll check the thread later, scent with most votes wins.

Jump is a nice fragrance. It's basically a sweeter version of Nightflight. Sillage, projection, and longevity is better than average and to my nose it smells like a cross between Allure Homme Sport and Bleu de Chanel.
Jacomo de Jacomo
Joop Jump meets your criteria. I have been enjoying it alot this summer
Sorry guys, I've changed my mind.
Just watched a few reviews for JOOP! Nightflight and I want to get that, it seems like that's exactly what I'm looking for (big size, projection, sillage, longevity seem to be good, fresh etc). I can get a 125ml bottle. My only worry is if it's similar to Versace Dreamer as I already have two 100ml of that.
I'd go for Blue Sugar for a sweet gourmand (I actually prefer it to Angel Men, personally). For a fresh, clean scent, I'd skip Joop Jump and get Joop Nightflight. (by far, my favorite scent from Joop).
The others are ok, except for Jacomo de Jacomo. Man, I hate that original scent of theirs (a medicinal clove bomb that is very "old man" smelling).
Bumping to say I bought a 125ml Le Male EDT instead. Sorry guys.
I remember last time I made a similar thread I was stuck between Le Male and Rochas Man and went for the latter.
I've actually smelled Le Male before but it was a long time ago, can remember it being minty though.
As long as it's a projection beast I'll be happy.
Got Le Male today.
It's very strange. Smells kinda plastic-y to be honest. I don't think it's a projection beast either but my mum said she could definitely smell it from a distance.
Seems quite a linear fragrance too, not much difference that I can notice between the opening and drydown.
