    Default Recommendations based on Likes

    Hi Fellow Basenoters,
    This is my first post. I find the perfume reviews highly subjective and the biggest issue remains as to what would be applicable to you. As you will realize from the list below that my choices do go against conventional favorites at times.
    I was wondering if i could get recommendations me based on my exisitng likes. This the list of perfumes i have used and liked or disliked over last 8-10 years.

    L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme - 5/5
    Gucci PH II - 5/5
    Versace Eau Fraiche - 4.5/5
    Aqua di Gio - 4.5/5
    B* Men - 1.5/5
    CK One - 2.5/5
    CK BE - 2/5
    John Varvatos by John Varvatos - 3.5/5
    Versace Dreamer - 3.5/5
    Armani Attitude - 3/5
    Le'Male by JPG - 2.5/5
    L'Instant (Guerlain) - 2.5/5
    Hugo by Hugo Boss - 3/5
    Magnetism by Escada - 3/5
    Everlast Original - 1/5
    Cool Water by Davidoff - 3/5
    Lapidus PH by Ted Lapidus - 2/5
    XS PH by Paco Robanne - 3.5/5 (from my memory of many years ago)


    Based on this list, can you guys suggest me few names that i can try? I am 30 something and generally look to wear the perfume at all times (work or going out or partying)

    Thanks
    Diki

    - Chanel allure sport : similar to Aqua di gio , but a class above in miles

    - Chanel platinum egoiste : fresh and citrucy in the opening , then cools down to a floral woody paradise

    Since you like L'eau D'Issey you may want to give Bellagio for Men a try. It falls into the "cheap but good" category. I prefer it to Issey but it definitely has a similar vibe to it.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Based on your likes I HIGHLY recommend two fragrances:

    Guerlain Homme L'Eau

    Dior Homme Sport

    These are excellent fresh fragrances that seems very much in line with your taste. Very versatile and well received by others.

    Also, if you're feeling a little more adventurous, take a look into Cartier Roadster. At least sample it. You may really like it.

    Awesome suggestions! The tool mentioned by Dr_Rudi is quite interesting. thanks for that.

    I am now very curious to try out Allure Sport and Dior Homme Sport. thanks tdwctdwc and Busyblind.
    BTw, i am quite surprised at Burberry London being suggested. I always thought that it is very Woody and Tobaccoish in smell. But i havent smelled it so i may be wrong.

    Also any reccos for something similar to Gucci PHII. I am quite smitten by the aroma and just cant get over it. If there are any similar in line and possibly slighly more projecting, then even better.

    Thanks again everyone. and yes thanks for the great welcome.
