    You need a serious fragrance, and Antaeus is that one.

    hmmm i actually haven't tried any of chanel's older offerings like antaeus or egoiste but i really like the current chanel offerings so is that an indication if i will like the older chanels?

    I will definitly try to get my hand on some samples though

    maybe something clean or some elegant chypre.

    I personally find your wardrobe full of sweets/gourmands

    I strongly dislike Chrome and with the heat of the gym, it will project like crazy. I don't know if I could control myself and abstain from hitting the person with a 30 pound dumbbell. I would recommend something lighter or more natural smelling for the gym. Obviously, you don't want anything expensive for the purpose, nor do you need longevity monsters. I use things like the Aveda Chakras, the very light Chanel No 5 edt, or more recently some of the Dyptiques.

    I have a few other occasions

    For being a tourist and walking aound strange towns in stinking hot weather, Chrome is the best scent (the others either conk out or wash away).

    Have you picked a scent for funerals? I use D&G Homme.

    For wearing while undergoing surgery, I picked Bvlgari PH - smells okay, but subtle enough not to distract surgeon. It's also a good scent for when you have to sit down and wait a long time in close confines to other people, e.g. in a Doctor's waiting room.

    Your collection looks pretty classy to me. But aren't the two Creeds really meant for something more classy than for regular casual use?

    hmm ok so i think i need some more clean fragrances that will not offend anyone that can work in a gym setting or even a setting like a line or waiting room.

    thinking about adding prada amber then.

    hmm i dunno about the creeds, while they are high class i just dont feel that they're anything that special.

    MI i think i have a bad batch because i cant smell it on myself after a couple minutes and the aventus i have is too smokey for my tastes(very different from the sample)

    Realistically if you have Allure Homme Sport, you have an acceptable fragrance for any occasion. You on top of that have a number of other versatile fragrances than can be used in a wide variety of situations (in addition to the ones you've expressly delineated) so it's really a matter of how much do you want to vary your fragrances and have a number of options rather than a necessity to acquire more fragrances at this point. I do agree that a more formal fragrance like Antaeus would be a good direction to go in next as Dior Homme and Allure are still fairly casual in the grand scheme of what's available out there, but a lot of this depends on your age and how formal these events are that you're going to
