    Red face New & Curious I need advise on how to use my fragrances.

    Hello, Pardon me, English is not my language.

    I have read Basenotes for a few months now, I found some really useful imformation here.

    As a 28 years old governing officer (Plan & Policy Analyst) in Thailand which is so hot & humid, I use fragrance everyday to enhance my style.

    Now I own these fragrances.
    - Chanel Platinum Egoiste - My Office/Spring&Summer Scent

    - Davidoff Cool Water (Original & Summer Drive) - My Casual Scent

    - JPG Le Male - My Clubing/Fall&Winter Scent

    - PR One Million - My Clubbing/Fall&Winter Scent

    - L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme - My meeting scent

    - RL Polo Double Black - My formal event scent

    - CK Free - It is a gift that I do not quit like it

    - Davidoff Champion

    - Dunhill Desire Blue

    By the way, I have just bought Chanel Antaeus today. I went to Chanel Shop for Egoiste which I have smell the tester and I love it, but Egoiste has left the building (sold out) so I bought Antaeus instead.



    Here comes the questions.

    Question 1
    What is your recommend on using Chanel Antaeus ? Winter ? Night formal party ? I do not think it is suitable for office since it is really strong so it might offense someone.

    Question 2
    My new boss will arrive at the office in 10 hours. Which one should I wear for the 1st impression ?

    Question 3
    I am going to attend my colleague's wedding on Oct 15th. Which one do you recommend for a wedding party ?

    Question 4
    My colleagues & I going to have a winter trip to South Korea on December which will be freezing cold. Which one do you recommend for such condition ?

    Question 5
    I bought L'Eau D'Issey pour Homme Intense at a Duty Free Shop as a gift for my colleague months ago, I also bought Le Male for myself. Is it better than the original? I might buy it when I finish the original.

    PS. Today I had really weird experience. During hectic work hours, a male colleague rushed to me and suddenly asked me to sniff his chest, then ask what I thought of the scent. I believe it is Burberry Weekend for Women. It can be understand if he ask me to sniff his wrist, but seriously you should not ask someone to sniff your chest, right? It is quit an intimate area.

    IMO it is suitable for any occasion at any time. Enjoy it.

    I'd go Platinum Egoiste for question 2
    Question 3? Hmm like you suggested for formal, Polo Double Black! Or if it's a little hot, why not L'Eau D'issey?
    For Korea I'd go Le Male!

    I think you need Chanel Allure Homme Sport for warm/summer days...you seem to like Chanel and I really don't think you have many summer/hot day scents.!

    The answer is Antaeus for all the questions.

    Apply 1 or 2 sprays when you can find some strong fragrance problems, and overspray when you want to be noticed.
    Antaeus is fantastic

    Before buying Ahs, see if you can sample allure edition Blanche as well!

    As for your collegue I think he was asking for an honest opinion, but unfortunately had sprayed the scent in the spot where he would smell it himself, without looking silly(i.e. sniffing his wrist every 2 or 3 minutes). Diplomatically suggest he spray the fragrance on some paper or tissue, the next time he wants your input. (Unless, of course, he was playing a joke on you.)

    P.S. Nice collection you have started there

    Thanks, d4N13L for really useful tip.

    I will try to find Egoiste, then try AHS and ADB to see if I will like them.

    Thanks, Roger.
    I have ask him to get me Davidoff Cool Water Summer Dive before its release in Thailand so he know I like fragrance,

    Anyway, I think developed my passion for fragrance from my parents.
    My mother love Chanel No.5 and own so many fragrances.
    My father have used Fahrenheit (original) and I recently saw some armani fragrances in this wardrobe.
