    Default Pick 1 out of 5 Designer Frags for Me (Perplexed!)

    Guys - i have a good offer online for these - please do the honors!
    Which one would you rather buy? for General use for everyday scent.

    I dont want to spend too much because i've just blown the wallet on Epic Man,Opus VI,Absolte Pour Le Soir,Bel Ami, and Mousson (Hermes)



    Thanks all once again!

    Out of these, Guerlain Vetiver (even in the current formulation which is not the best IMO).

    Meaning that vintage Guerlain Vetiver could make a better option but If you don't have access to it, the current Vetiver formulation is still a better alternative to all the other fragrances in your list....obviously in my opinion.

    Thanks alfarom you are the master! there seems to be two choices
    1.With the striped bottle (http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/G...etiver-69.html)
    2.A Flat Bezeled Bottle (http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/G...iver-3827.html)
    - probably this not what you mean? and is actually describing an older bottle?

    There seem to have an "Extreme" version as well - any good? - I am planning to get ARAMIS Concentree as well - just dont want to criss-cross territories - dont want too much of the same thing.

    You have great taste buddy!

    I only have experience with Xeryus Rouge so I'll suggest that one. It's a good one, just not one that I reach for that often...but then again, it is summer and it's definitely not a summer frag, to me at least. I don't tend to classify frags as summer of winter frags, but this one has so much spice to it, I don't think I would ever wear it in warmer weather.

    Like the previous poster, I've only had experience with Xeryus Rouge out of the ones you listed. It's a decent fragrance. Rather sweet, but not a gourmand type of sweet. Kind of unusual, but nothing too weird or disagreeable about it. I liked it, just not enough to buy a bottle.

    First bottle is the current formulation. Now they changed the bottle again but the juice is the same. Second bottle looks exactly like the vintage EDT but the one in the picture is the EDC (which smells great but it is not so easy to find). Vintage EDT has the same bottle has the one shown in the second picture (golden cap) but it says EDT and comes in a green box?

    None of them are particularly great stand outs. Save your money.

    I agree with the poll. Guerlain Vetiver by a country mile.
    We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.

    Givenchy Xeryus Rouge. Incredibly longlasting and projective. Musky-sweet but cold at the same time.

    I like the Versace, too. It's either that or Vetiver for me, but I find the Versace more interesting, personally.
