    Default Best winter daytime fragrances

    Hey all,

    I'm looking to buy a new fragrance for winter. I've got plenty of night time winter options but want something thats best suited for daytime wear for a 30 year old professional.

    Projection and longevity are reasonably important. Looking for something dark, woody, a little spicy and maybe very slightly citrusy.

    Any recommendations?

    Powerhouse-themed, dark, spicy, warm and slightly edgy, but also luxurious- Esencia Loewe, Ungaro III, Santos de Cartier, Zino Davidoff, Van Cleef and Arpels pour Homme, Escada pour Homme, Fahrenheit Absolue
    Chypres, quite close to the first category mentioned above, but with a more barbershoppy and/or soapy and/or citrus and/or herbal touch- Paco Rabanne PH, Azzaro PH, YSL Rive Gauche PH, Habit Rouge
    An even greener category of all-weather daytime allrounders of timeless elegance- TDH Parfum bu Hermes, Voyage d'Hermes, Guerlain Vetiver, Knize Forest
    Orientals- Jaipur Homme, Opium Eau d'Orient
    Gourmands- M7, also seconding Burberry London, maybe even Versace The Dreamer, Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    Leathery daytime scents- Aramis pour Homme, Francesco Smalto pour Homme, Geo F Trumper Spanish Leather, even Trussardi Uomo, Givenchy Gentleman and Chanel Antaeus (the latter three more appropriate suitable for evening wear, but still, partially wearable with very formal/classic daytime wear)

    Corps et Ames by Parfumerie Generale - Upon application, one is treated to a somewhat fresh gust of leafy greenness, with a fruity and minty undertone, from the developing, bourbon geranium. Magical aldehydes add sparkle and brilliance to the verdancy. Transitioning to the heart, the maturing, bourbon geranium takes on a lovely, sweet rose character, and commingles with a faint, sweetish jasmine. Syrupy immortelle infuses the floral-ish brew with its straw-like and burnt sugar facets, as well as an undercurrent of zesty celery and curry. A slight, body odor dirtiness presents. This enticing melange meanders to the waiting base. A creamy sandalwood interplays with a soft leather, mossy oakmoss, and earthy patchouli. And, a whisper of soapiness as well as sweetly exotic incense flutter about. A mildly dark, yet relaxing, drydown ensues. This masculine composition is well-crafted with quality ingredients, and has average projection and good longevity.
