    Default Going on a date and indecisive...

    I saw another thread like this and I find myself in a similar situation. I got a date coming up in a few days and I'm having a hard time choosing what cologne to wear amongst my collection. Back when I only had like 7 bottles it was easy and I'd just reach for good ol' Acqua Di Gio. But things have changed and the weather is cooler now.
    I chose 6 of my best date scents but I'd like other's opinions. Thanks!

    Of those The Dreamer is the obvious winner imo but there's a number of others in your collection that would do nicely that might have been worthy of the poll (GIT, MI, London and Prada PH to name a few)

    Thanks for the input guys. The Dreamer was another one I was seriously considering and I forgot to put London on the poll! I definitely meant to include it.

    Johnny, just do it mane! The longer you wait, the harder it will be to ask her.

    Pure Havane is obviously the most popular but do you think it will be too much for a first date? I know these Angel Men colognes tend to have monster projection.

    pure havane hands down!!

    D&G ph starts gorgeous but quickly turns into something sour with the tobacco-pepper duet striking your nose. IMO

    Very surprised by the direction this poll has taken, did not expect Pure Havane to be in the running let alone the decisive winner

    I know what you mean. I thought The Dreamer or D&G Pour Homme would have cleaned house but Pure Havane is taking it. I really like Pure Havane, but I'm afraid it might be too much for a first date. I was thinking of D&G Pour Homme.

    You want her to think you are at least interesting on the first date, and then something to really bring it on home for the second one. So you might not want to bring out your big guns right off the bat. If you feel like you have a chance, I'd work the build up if I were you.

    I was thinking about that. That's why I narrowed the choices down to those 6. I left out my Creeds. D&G pour homme is one of my safer romantic scents and I think it will be enough to draw her in for the first date. The next time we go out, then I'll bring out the Creed or Pure Havane and show her what's up.

    From your list, excluding Pure Havane which I haven't smelled as it's not sold here, I'd pick Hanae Mori.
    So I haven't voted, as I can't make an informed decision.

    Disagree, first date is when you want to make the best possible impression because a) there may not be a second date and b) if there is, you'll have more leeway if you made a very good first impression on the first date. If the "big guns" provide the best possible impression, then you go with them on the first date. Plus, there are enough "big guns" out there to be had for future dates as well haha

    I was actually really considering MI b/c it smells incredible. I myself can't stop smelling my wrists when I'm wearing it.

    Well now I'm at a crossroads again. I was 100% sure that I was going to wear D&G but then MI came into the mix and Pure Havane is slowly working it's way into my #1 spot...sometimes it's difficult being a collector!

    I beg to differ. If someone's gonna show up and let his fragrance do all the talking, then he IS a boring bastard! I'll go with The One Gentleman for a 1st date. At least it won't appear as if you're trying too hard to impress. Girls have a built-in radar to scan for 'desperados'. Haha!

    I agree. The A*Men line is loud and obnoxious... probably better for clubbing or fishing rather than a date. I like MI better but either of the D&Gs would be fine too. And whatever you do, go light on the sprayer.

    I'm leaning towards MI or the original D&G. MI smells very very nice but D&G has an almost reserved, casual sexiness to it. And fear not, I will be going light on the trigger.

    You say you're from "somewhere really cold." Perhaps, MI is out of season there ... try the GIT, which you list in your

    wardrobe; it can be worn any time ...

    Think how many people would play it safe in this situation and not wish to offend with their scent. IMO the OP should wear whichever scent best reflects his personality. Of course it wont do all of the talking nor disguise personality failings, but I think you have to be confident to wear a fragrance a little less run of the mill and with alluring notes like honey and tobacco on a first date.

    Given the atrocious longevity of The One Gentleman (not denying it's a good scent), if he goes with that, it best be applied immediately before the date starts, and hope that the woman spends a lot of time in close quarters and the date lasts less than an hour. I can only think of one type of 'date' where this would occur, and it involves the exchange of money for services.

    EDIT: looks like I'm too late!
