    Off the top of my head in no particular order I find myself wearing these most often:

    Pure Malt
    Aventus
    GIT
    La Nuit
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche (if a more casual date or daytime, bigtime compliment getter. Actually has gotten me more compliments than the above 4 combined)

    Am very surprised to see I'm the only one to mention La Nuit so far, this one screams "date scent" and would've thought it and Aventus would run away with the thread

    Actually I would change the rose 31 to Original Vetiver especially for a first date. Very under rated scent with a clean, soapy and inoffensive vibe to it.

    Honestly, I could not put together a top five anymore

    In my younger days, I tended to follow the established patterns with gourmands and aquatic, but as I progress in age, the strangest scent choices turn out to be appropriate for dating (at least, according to the fragrance tastes of the dates).

    I guess it all depends on the day/night and activity

    Dior Homme Intense - casual night/drinks
    Frederic Malle L'eau D'hiver (my new found love!) - nights with close encounters
    Creed Aventus - almost any day
    LIDGE - a night after a formal event
    Creed MI/GIT - a safe bet
    Current Top 5:
    1. Frederic Malle L'eau d'Hiver
    2. Tom Ford Noir de Noir
    3. Dior Homme / Dior Homme Intense
    4. Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane / Pure Malt
    5. Creed Aventus / Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille

    Fahrenheit for a date with woman who is edgier than you are.

    i don't wear anything on a date because cologne is so cliche on a date. the woman can flat out smell the desperation off of you. the last time i was on a date, i wore cool water, and even then i gently wiped it off with my neck with a rag because i wanted to be nuetral.

    But if I were to suggest a date night fragrance, go with something light and pleasant. Like maybe Millesime Imperial.

    I know men on basenotes say women really love the super-manly powerhouses, but many women IRL think they're gross.

    But really, wear whatever makes you feel good on a date. Just not too much of it though.
