    Default Top 5 Designer Fragrances for Winter

    What are your top 5 designer fragrances for Winter? We're in the middle of winter, so it would be interesting to see what everyone is wearing currently. (if this has been done recently, my apologies)

    I've only got top 3 and its:

    1) Givenchy Play Intense
    2) A*Men
    3) Jean Paul Gaulter Le Male

    ^Not very exciting, so im looking to see what everyone is wearing for ideas.

    For me personally, in no order:

    Angel Men
    Burberry London
    Dior Fahrenheit
    JOOP! Homme
    Le Male

    Worthy mention to Roadster by Cartier that would have made my top 5 in place of JOOP! Homme or Le Male if the projection was a bit stronger.

    I see a lot of people recommending Burberry Brit as a winter scent sometimes but it is one of the fragrances I love for summer. I don't think it's cloying, it smells incredibly powdery and clean so I think it works well in summer and projects well because of the heat. (Sorry for hijacking the thread lol.)

    Another good choice but I didn't pick this because Angel Men is also a chocolate scent but is better in every way.

    Winter is probably the best time to wear La Nuit De L'Homme EDT. Rochas Man is also an excellent bang for the buck.
    Top 5:
    1) La Nuit De L'Homme by Yves Saint Laurent
    2) Venetian Bergamot by Tom Ford
    3) Costa Azzurra by Tom Ford
    4) Royal Oud by Creed
    5) Allure Homme Sport Extreme by Chanel

    Totally agree my man. I tried Brit this winter and it just doesn't smell good or project anywhere near as well as in the warmer months..

    My list changes all the time, but right now I'm using these the most..

    New Haarlem
    Antidote
    Allure Homme

    I think Chergui and New Haarlem are fantastic but maybe not "designer" as such?

    5 isn't enough! Lets see some that you might like based on what you've got

    1) Givenchy Play Intense
    Depending on what part of this one you like, you might like Very Irresistible Pour Homme, Rochas Man, Armani Attitude, YSL La Nuit de L'Homme, or Polo Double Black
    2) A*Men
    Most of the flankers are better than the original, Pure Coffee, Pure Malt, Pure Havane, B*Men. Also check out Guerlain L'Instant Pour Homme Extreme
    3) Jean Paul Gaulter Le Male
    212 Sexy Men. Or maybe Joop Jump. I prefer either to Le Male

    As for stuff thats nothing like what you have, you dont have anything with a spicy note.

    So check out Cartier Must PH, Body Kouros, Lolita Lempicka au Masculin, Black XS, Burberry Brit, Obsession for Men, Giorgio for Men and Givenchy Gentleman.
    Lastly, a tip from Renato. Joop Homme Aftershave Splash, that you decant into a bottle with a spray. All the goodness of Joop Homme without the room clearing obnoxiousness...
