    Default Your niche favourites for...

    Ok, guys, shall we make kind of a Starting Lineup?


    I know the idea is not new, but it´d be fun to see other fellow friend´s choice, here! So, the idea is to tell two fragrances, one for Spring/Summer and the other for Fall/Winter, for the following occasions:

    - Work;
    - Formal;
    - Date;
    - Night out;
    - Signature scent;
    - Daring scent.



    Ok, here are my picks:

    Work: Amouage Reflection Man/Frederic Malle L´Eau D´Hiver
    Formal: Creed Millesime Imperial/MFK Lumiére Noire
    Date: Amouage Lyric Man/By Kilian Back to Black
    Night out: Creed Aventus/Serge Lutens Chergui
    Signature scent: Le Labo Bergamote 22/Tom Ford Tuscan Leather
    Daring scent: Le Labo Iris 39/Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur

    Categories I can relate to even though I don't categorize my scents and are always non-season specific for me, to play along:

    Work - Burberry London
    Formal: Clive Christian No.1 Limited
    Night out:Gengis Khan
    Daring scent: Hard Leather (recently)

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    I never categorize what parfums / cologne's I own - wear anything anywhere & haven't really had bad consequences...totally up to the mood I'm in when selecting to wear.

    Gotta poke my ugly little head in here and ask:

    if you're asking people to name two fragrances each for 6 categories, isn't the idea of a signature scent defeated before we begin?

    This 100%

    The only thing i can say is that from the mid 90's to the mid 00's when it was reformulated, i wore D&G PH a LOT.
    And in 2012 when MFK Oud was released, i wore that one a LOT.
