    Having recently married (three months ago), I can tell you what I wore to my wedding (He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood), wedding reception 6 hours later (Eau Sauvage), and the next morning (Guerlain Heritage).

    Recently wore Rochas Moustache to my daughter's junior high graduation.

    Of your wardrobe, I've only tried the Jil Sander, but I recall that it would do well for a special occasion.

    On special occasions, I reach for something from my Roja Dove and Xerjoff 17/17 collection. The nature of the occasion will determine which one I choose to wear. For instance, for my 25th anniversary I wore Roja Dove "Roja", my wife scent was Xerjoff 17/17 Dama Rose. The last birthday celebration I attended, I wore Diaghilev. And the previous, Xerjoff 17/17 RichWood. For my niece weeding it was Danger. My last business dinner was Xerjoff 17/17 Homme.

    Definitely.

    Interlude Man is my favorite for especially dressy occasions. I wear it casually too... but for a night on the town, it can't be beat!

    Depends on the special occasion, season, event, etc. I do like Jubilation XXV as a celebratory fragrance, especially during the fall and winter holidays.

    Strangely I tend to go for Van Cleef & Arpels Zanzibar - discontinued, rare and rather lovely IMO.

    Generally what is most expensive or limited in quantity:

    Diaghilev
    O Hira
    Extreme Oud Kilian
    Pure oud; oils and attars
    Jubilation XXV
    Tribute
    Homage
    Something from the Xerjoff Oud Stars range
    A White Oud attar I got years ago and have been unable to find since

    To be frank, no boast, most of what I've got probably falls in special occasion territory so I tend to wear them whenever.
    What I'd like to try

    Prices Rreduced!UK Only:Kilian B2B, Incense Oud, Pure Oud/MFK Pluriel/Ensar Oud/AgarAura Oud


    My UK Swapsies!

    Need some Roja help: Need a Roja cap, any one (gave away my Fetish cap)
    Also my Harrods Oud bottle needs a cap
    Muchas gracias

    I generally wear whatever I like the most, within reason. Dior Ambre Nuit, Amouage Reflection Man, Amouage Tribute, Bulgari Black, Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille. Oud-laden attars are potentially a bit much, or so I fear. I'll learn more this winter.

    That depends on the occasion.

    D600 and Memoir Man are great for upper class events. Romantic occasions? Id go with Back to Black or Noir de Noir. Formal ones: Reflection Man or Green Irish Tweed.

    That are more options: Jubilation XXV, Invasion Barbare, Royal Oud, Lumire Noire, Pure Malt, etc. You just need to see whats appropriate for each occasion.
