    Default A Man for All Seasons

    What scents do you find are great for any day of the year? That kind of daily wear scent that works whether it is too hot or too cold out, or the temperature indoors is maybe extreme for you? A scent you like to smell in winter and will gladly wear the heck out of in summer? I am curious about both day and night scents, but mainly curious about what scent you seem to care for on any given day that you apply fragrance, regardless of what season guides most of your other scent choices.

    From my collection I'd consider these guys as very versatile:

    Terre d'Hermes
    Grey Vetiver Tom Ford
    Ciel Amouage
    Infusion d'Homme Prada
    Sartorial Penhaligons

    and with a light touch:

    Great Jones Bond No. 9
    Rose 31 Le Labo
    Paestum Rose Eau d'Italie
    Lyric Man Amouage
    Conscience is what hurts when everything else feels so good.

    All in all I find myself reaching for Green Irish Tweed more on average than any other through out the year.

    I would say most aquatic/fresh fragrances would work fine

    my favorites:
    Guerlain Eau Du Coq
    Mugler Cologne
    Eau Sauvage by Dior
    Kourous Fraicheur
    Platinum Egoiste
    so on...

    I usually wear any of my fragrances year round...with the exception of a couple. New Haarlem tends to be only during the cooler months..it's a little much when it's hot out.

    All of them. I don't categorise fragrance by season and go with whatever I feel like, varying application accordingly.

    Just to name a few-

    Escencia Loewe
    Rive Gauche (I have better longevity with this in winter)
    Invasion Barbare
    Sartorial
    Casanova
    Gatsby
    Charles Street

    I think it really comes down to whatever you feel comfortable with. There have been warm days for me when Heritage feels right while other days it just doesn't seem to fit. After a while and after a lot of sampling you'll find what works for you.

    Mark Birley for Men, although I find the orange notes tend to be more prominent in warm weather and the violet/metallic notes come to the fore in colder weather.

    Any scent is fair game for all seasons, IMO. That said, out of my collection Terre d'Hermes and Amouage Dia seem to get more year-round use.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (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)

    Bleu du Chanel is my most flexible fragrance. Day, night, winter, summer, work, play. It works in every situation.

    Default Re: A Man for All Seasons

    I try to disassociate myself from picking seasons for fragrances. However there are a few in my collection that get to be "too much" in the heat, even with moderate application. That being said, there are a few that are extra-versatile (meaning I can wear for pretty much any occasion):

    Creed Green Irish Tweed
    D&G The One
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport
    Bleu de Chanel
    Versace Dreamer
    Armani Mania
    Aqua Fahrenheit (This one really works all year very well...not too strong in Summer but then again projects well in the cold Winter months)

    Fahrenheit dior, my signature scent. I wear it all year, any occasion, day or night. very versatile
