2. Mouchoir de Monsieur
3. Vintage G-Gentleman
No matter what, I can't distance myself from Jicky: I wear it every day, in every strength. Over the course of the day, I layer it with Mouchoir de Monsieur, and I use vintage G-Gentleman everything: Soap, deodorant, powder, aftershave, and a blast of the EdT on my belly button. Try as I might, I can not get away from these. What I wear to bed, on my own around the house, on weekends & for special occasions, I suspect, doesn't count.....

are all tied for the top, roughly.
Lately, I have been using Monsieur de Givenchy for day because it is so unobstrusively elegant and well-mannered.
And for night outs, L'eau d'Hiver from Frederic Malle or sometimes if it is cold outside, M7 from YSL.
Most used scent of all time:
1. Grey Flannel
2. Déclaration (Essence & EDT)

Cool Water probably. I take many trips and I just take Cool Water with me, so I won't be too disappointed if my luggage is lost (it's the cheapest, not because I don't like it).

For abt 3 yrs straight - 1000+ days, I used Hilfiger Athletics (Cologne, shower gel + deo) - this was in India, extreme hot weather in the city I lived with 90% humidity. Worked wonders. Just so u know, we had 2 seasons in the city - summer (35 deg + humidity) & then hot summer (40-45 & humidity)

Even doe its my lest expensive bottle. My go to has Been Nicole Miller. I love the smell of it and on my it last most of the day. Also no one every wears it anymore.
My most used fragrance was Ice Men and it's Live Jazz now, but while I do like them, I find them too dry on certain days. My choices for such weather seems very limited, and I still haven't found my go-to summer scent. When it's really hot, and I know I'll be spending some time outside, I often stick to just an anti-perspirant.
At night I wear whatever I want, paying no heed to the temperature. A small price to pay for the experience.
My most used is Shalimar EDP.
Like many things in my life, I go through phases where I get obsessed over one thing for awhile, then leave it alone. My frags are the same way...currently it is Ramon Monegal, I have worn Dry Wood or Agar Musk every day for a week. Last week I was wearing Bn9 New York Musk every day...
I have a TON of Full Bottles/Decants/Samples for trade/sale. Montale, Oud Oils, Amouage, Mancera, Penhaligon's
Sycomore most. Perfect for work and relax.
Most used: Gucci pH & Fahrenheit
