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.....

Tiffany For Men
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)
Most used scent nowadays:

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...

Lumière Noire pour Homme
Noir de Reminiscence
At the moment...
As of today, it's Mugler Cologne.
I wouldn't say it's my favourite but at the same time it's not surprising to me it's my most worn. It's because it's so versatile, and so pleasing to wear. It's the frag I reach for without having to put thought into when I am undecided.
It's becoming MI. Uplifting and cheerful. It brings me the sun when there are clouds.
Is the juice worth the squeeze?
Although, since I've been keeping track in my wardrobe, it's Aventus.
Currently Hugo, by Hugo Boss is my most used fragrance.
My 3 Signature Scents:
Rive Gauche Light (2004)
Paul Smith Man (2009)
Probably Allure Homme Sport, even though this is not my favorite fragrance (it is very safe for work in the tropics)
In the last year, a tie:
M7 and Egoiste, but closely followed by Ballenciaga Pour Homme.
All time: Aventus, my first niche and I wore it a lot 2 or 3 years ago. Recently years not so much.
My most used fragrance in general is Virgin Island Water, it is one of my all time favourites and one of a very few fragrances that I finish up and always repurchase, that aside it is also very inoffensive, light and suitable for many occasions, I wear it to work easily since it never bothers anyone and people often ask me what am I wearing..
And at the moment, my most weared (since I spray it all the times at the moment, even when at home) is Escada Born in Paradise...I know I know...its very cheap and simple and nothing "high quality" or artistic in it but it's such an entertaining fragrance for me, so much fun, and uplifting and mood booster...it's kinda "have a great day" fragrance and really people notice it and love it!!
Oops...just noticed this is a male fragrance thread...sorry for interrupting..newbie alert

We're now in the full swing of spring (finally) and my top guns are:
Green Irish Tweed
with support from...
Virgin Island Water
Millesime Imperial and Virgin Island Water is my most worn. But this wasn't suppose to be the case, Dior Homme was suppose to be my signature scent. But it doesn't make my feel as good as the other 2 does.
What coach Rob says determines what I spray
Aventus and D&G Light Blue pour homme
Tied...Millesime Imperial and Bleu De Chanel
