    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.
    Currently wearing: Sir by D.S. & Durga

    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.

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