    Given the reviews I've read of D&G The One on how this works on others, it would be perfect in this scenario but I don't think I've ever tried a fragrance that I've gotten worse projection or longevity on (it's pretty much gone instantaneously) We've briefly kicked around the idea of going to San Diego for the day this weekend and GIT is the one I've gotten pegged for that day as I get excellent longevity on it. L'Homme would be another good option for the day but I don't think I'd wear it around her at night

    Thanks for articulating some of the other thoughts I had on this, I definitely do want to keep her guessing and keep things interesting. I also don't want to put the idea in her head that I'll be wearing PE all the time and want her to know I'll be rotating through a number of things. Especially considering PE is not something I would want to be wearing often, right now I only wear it ~once a month (although I always enjoy it when I do wear it)

    The last three comments I've had on Aventus from girls are "that smells feminine", "that smells like something I would wear" and "what are you wearing, I want to get it for my sister" although all three enjoyed it a lot. I might wear this one around her during the day at some point, but given the other options I have for tonight there's no point taking a chance on this as I don't think this is really what she's looking for.

    I actually thought about wearing all of these at one point or another (except for the Prada, again too feminine smelling I think for her), good job reading my mind haha. Body Kouros, Armani Code and GPH1 are probably the second tier down from the 4 I mention in my original post. Nothing wrong with these, I just don't like them/wear them as often as the others. YSL Rive Gauche I think is the same issue as Terre D'Hermes, very sophisticated but doesn't lend itself well to an intimate moment (at least I think). I just worry it only smells clean and might be a bit boring

    I am not straight - not that there's anything wrong with that. But I have had many female co-workers (a variety of ages) ask me specifically what I was wearing (Terre d'Hermes) because they wanted to buy it for their husband/boyfriend - and they also made some lude comments in the process.

    I too have received a number of lewd comments upon wearing this, but unfortunately a good number of them negative. If the opportunity presents itself, I'll have her sample it tonight since if she does in fact like it I think she'll like it more than what has been previously suggested in this thread. However, given my experiences with it I just think it would be too big of a risk to wear in this situation. While with La Nuit or Herrera for Men at worst I'll get a reaction to the effect of it "you smell okay/good" with Terre D'Hermes could be "you smell strange, go wash that off"

    She may enjoy Egoiste still more than Platinum Egoiste - many (myself included) think it a better scent. Perhaps you might pick up a bottle, wear it, and thus elude the obvious choice by improving on it?

    In retrospect I wish I had purchased Egoiste, but what's done is done. I don't wear PE or similar scents enough to justify purchasing it in addition to PE, but if I end up seeing this girl long-term it may be something I'll look into (or maybe I'll just convince her to buy it for me on an upcoming gift giving occasion haha)

    Since we're not going out, I was going to go fairly casual with the tennis shoes, jeans and band t-shirt (most likely The Ramones), but now looks like I'll have to dress it up a bit more given the cologne selections I'm choosing from. Going with an athletic fit v-neck, Diesel jeans and Bruno shoes, hopefully her outfit and her eagerness to remove mine will make up for my trouble

    Congrats on dating someone into fragrances. I can't even imagine what that would be like.

    I'd go with Varvatos - it's pretty masculine and dark to my nose. She should like it.

    Honestly, just wear whatever makes you most comfortable. It's going to be all you're wearing in a short while, so just make sure it lasts.

    That's the thing about The One you can definitely make it work by just applying more. You said you guys are gonna be watchin a movie at your apt. You don't want anything that's gonna project wildly throughout your spot. You want somethin subtle. With The One low projection it could work to your advantage. Spray enough for her to smell when she gives you a hug when sh enters and if she wants extra smells she'll have to get nestled under you....hahaaaa.

    I ended up wearing Herrera for Men which she instantly commented on and told me she loved, but PE is still her favorite. The way she snuggled up close to me for most of the date and kept putting her nose to my neck while commenting on it made me think twice about that assessment though, Pure Malt certainly didn't have the same effect. I didn't get a chance to show her the Terre D'Hermes as I had hoped but perhaps the opportunity will present itself at a later time.

    Unfortunately, overall the date did not go as well as the cologne selection. Apparently I gave her a "major player vibe" because all my terrible habits of saying right things, being funny and making a girl feel wanted were in full effect last night and her plans to stay "alllllllll night" quickly turned into her hastily making an exit at 12:30am. As the old saying goes, "the best laid schemes of mice and men often don't get you laid"

    Thanks though to all those who provided sound advice in this thread, it's good to see that there's a mix on this site of hopeless romantics, unapologetic pervs and everything in between

    You're a cool cat. I know I'm late to this, but I, too, would have said PE. I've always been attracted to "saving" a perfume for a special occasion, but thanks to my friends on here, they tell me EVERY DAY IS A SPECIAL OCCASION.

    This came about because I bought Derby and was waiting a couple of months to actually wear it. LOL

    Sorry to hear that op. Next time pull out the big guns (Plat Egoiste) and if you still get rejected at least you'll know it's you that's the problem and not your cologne.

    That sucks...She could think you're a playa from your vast fragrance collection. I could give a further assessment into the situation but that is a totally different topic and a totally different site.

    Anyway glad you chose a good fragrance to wear for her.

    I may be committing sacrilege in saying this, but the success or failure of any given social situation is not entirely dependent on what fragrance you happen to be wearing at the time. The problem was most certainly me, in that I was in rare form last night from the get-go in that I had her laughing and entertained nonstop throughout the night, which was also my undoing as she commented several times "you're too smooth/way too good at this" and "are you always like this with all the girls?".

    I think she realized she liked me a lot more than she initially thought and was worried that if we took things that far on only our second date, I may lose interest in her and not want to pursue her any further so she abruptly decided to save her ace for another night. Ironically, the only reason I was so forward was because she had given me the invitation to do so earlier in the day, I was enjoying my time with her regardless and would've been content just continuing the date as we were and saving the main event for perhaps a less mundane night.

    Either way, I really have enjoyed my time with this girl and I suspect there will be a number of other dates and a number of other colognes, so it's hard for me to feel anything less than incredibly positive about last night. I'll try everything that's been suggested in this thread around her and get her reactions if it goes that far. Right before she arrived I had a brain flash that she might also really like Ralph Lauren Safari, so that will be added to the list as well
