    Default Versatile Only Fragrances!!

    I'm looking for versatile only fragrances. I want frags I can wear all year around. Anyone else just have versatile frags rather than seasonal frags? To me, I believe you would get more of your money's worth with just owning versatile frags? Suggestions?

    Wow, thanks for the quick replies. Haven't tried either of these. Although I do like YSL L'Homme and La Nuit.

    Dreamer, Eau Sauvage Extreme, Bvlgari Extreme, Platinum Egoiste, Allure Homme, Issey Miyake Intense, Burberry for Men and many, many more. Fragrances that are typically "versatile" seem boring or less artistic/inspired to me. I'd rather fall in love with something new with each season than to wear something less exciting or interesting all year round.
    Fall/Winter Rotation:

    Lancme Hypnse
    Lanvin Avant Garde
    Zegna Intenso
    Dior Homme Intense
    Thierry Mugler Taste of Fragrance
    Prada Amber Intense Pour Homme

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    Aramis and Yatagan are the two most versatile (i.e. all weather) fragrances I can think of. They are both aromatic and dry.

    Rive Gauche - Barbershop vibe.
    Chanel Allure Homme Editon Blanche - Lemony goodness that's masculine.
    Green Irish Tweed - Creed.
    M7 Fresh - Orange with a touch of pepper.
    Versace The Dreamer - Inexpensive and very nice.
    Joop Nightflight - Inexpensive and smells great.

    You're going to miss out on a lot of masterpieces with that philosophy. Just IMO

    Any fragrance you like can be worn whenever you want to. There are no seasonal rules, except the ones you self-impose on yourself.

    Depending on where you are in ohio ( i used to live near Toledo) it can be crazy humid in thr summer. There are few frags that work well in sweaty heat and freezing winters, but i have been using Coromandel quite a bit this summer, and have been pleasantly surprised how well it has adapted.

    Fragrances are not seasonal and have no gender IMO. It's all made up....like magical unicorns.
    Current infatuations:

    1. M7
    2. Encre Noire
    3. Tobacco Vanille
    4. A*Men
    5. Chergui

    I agree that all the fragrances can be used year round. The only thing is that when the weather gets hot, thick and rich fragrances should be sprayed on lightly so that it doesn't get too overpowering.

    My thinking behind this is having versatile cologne ends of being more cost effective cause your wearing it all year around. But with that said, I guess I was taking the seasonal rule to far I guess. LOL
