    Default Just for fun.. Help me pick out for my weekend trip to London.

    Going on a weekend trip to London in the end of the week for some shopping, museum, culture events etc. I`m 38, Wearing a black elegant coat/jacket, plain white shirt, dark grey pullover, dark blue jeans, black leather ankle-boots, and a stylish tie for evening/dinner. I want to wear a fragrance with sophisticated "aura" for day and evening, that emit "good taste".I will carry with me one fragrance, and have limited down to one of these:
    -Please help me pick!

    -Hermès Equipage
    -Cartier Pasha
    -Cartier Declaration
    -Cartier Santos Consentree
    -Amouage Dia

    -I was thinking about Opus 1870 for a long time, but it has really short sillage and longevity on my skin..

    My vote for Dia, followed by Equipage.

    Even better, when in London, stop at Ormonde Jayne and try something there. I've never smelled them myself, but I keep hearing good things.

    Or... you could visit Les Senteurs - they have 2 shops now in London - try out some other stuff, and take away some samples!!

    Seems like Dia and Equipage are in the top (temporary). No fans of Pasha here?

    Seriously - take all six. Decants, if you don't want to take full bottles. You're traveling in style already. No need to skimp on packing fragrances.

    Only permissible excuse for this type of behavior: you're taking only one, so you can buy more while you're there. In that case, ok - and start with Equipage.

    Enjoy your trip.

    Declaration seems the most versatile to me, as it has both enough ease to be worn with more causal attire, but is also formal enough for evening wear

    Declaration and then buy a few new scents Les Senteurs, Selfridges, Liberty, Harrods ...... have fun!

    You have a good haul and it's good to see the purchase of Bois Marocain a scent much underrated.

    I don't know some of those, but Santos Concentree fits the bill for sure!
