    Default What should I get from my current buy list?

    I just turned 22 and i want to treat myself to a new spring fragrance!
    I want a fragrance thats good in the warmer months but also complements my current tastes. My current favorite is Bvlgari Pour Homme Soir, I can't really explain why, but it just does it for me. What from the buy/try list do you think I should get next to complement this fragrance and enhance my wardrobe and make it more versatile?

    my current buy/try list is...

    Eau De Rochas
    Rive Gauche
    Eau d'Hadrien
    Bvlgari Pour Homme
    Eau Sauvage
    Prada Infusion d'homme
    Versace Pour Homme
    Polo Sport
    Mugler Cologne
    Kouros
    Eau des Baux
    Encre Noir

    All of your responses are appreciated.. Thank you

    I'd say either Prada Infusion d'Homme or Versace Pour Homme would be good choices and would work well in many situations.

    I agree - those will be enjoyable in the warmer months! Maybe Eau Sauvage and Mugler Cologne, too.

    i really like the fragrances suggested. These are naturally competing fragrances so its hard for me to choose. Mugler vs Eau sauvage and choosing between the beauty of Infusion versus the general likability of VPH

    My summer faves from the list would be either Encre Noire (fresh vetiver, but with a touch of dark woods) or Mugler cologne (informal, just pure synthetic freshness). Encre Noire would perhaps work also in more formal situations, Mugler cologne seems definitely less suited to those.

    rive gauche is one that i love but i feel so green wearing it among the older men i work with. i got the body wash, maybe it will help me build the confidence to wear it. Do you think a 22 y/o could pull it off?

    There are a few I haven't tried on your list, but my choices would be Mugler Cologne and Eau des Bavx.

    Eau des Baux is an excellent, natural vanilla...I might buy it but mainly for fall/winter.

    Versace pour Homme and Mugler Cologne are nice ones for spring-fresh and modern

    I highly recommend Eau des Baux and Encre Noir too, but they are more suitable for cooler weather. Maybe put them on your buy list for Fall.

    Bvlgari Pour Homme
    Eau Sauvage
    Prada Infusion d'homme
    Versace Pour Homme
    Polo Sport

    these are all very safe, but I would DEFINITELY go with Eau Sauvage.

    Eau de Rochas is my favorite from that list -- the oakmoss is sublime. However, longevity is not great, and it's rather old-fashioned, so it depends on your look too as you're 22.

    I started looking around on YT on mugler reviews due to high votes in this thread and found this review hilarious.
