    Default Recomendation on a "evening/date/special occasions" scent

    Hi Everyone!
    Well so I'm looking for a nice and not extremely expensive fragance for evenings, dates and special occasions... probably you know what I mean.
    Searching in my online drugstore I found a few, which based on this forum should be appropiate. I just can't decide and I would appreciate if you could help me.
    1. Mont Blanc Individuel
    2. Van Cleef Midnight in Paris
    3. CK Contradiction and Obsession Night
    4. Rochas Desir
    Also saw Encre Noire, Zino Davidoff, Ungaro III... and also I think in other one I saw the Ferragamo F Black.
    I know that the fragances I listed here are quite different to each other, but what can I say.
    As references while describing (if it helps) I have been using before for example Rochas Man, Azzaro Visit, Dunhill Desire, Animale Animale. I have been sniffing recently (few days ago so I remember them pretty well) Armani Code, Opium PH and some more, but there is no point of listing all the fragances.
    I'm open to every type of fragance, but take into consideration that I'm about 25 years old.
    Thanks beforehand.

    Van Cleef Midnight in Paris would be fine IMO.

    Try:

    Bulgari pour Homme Soir by Bulgari - An initial burst of refreshing bergamot, halfway between a lemon and an orange, with its tart and juicy green and very faint mint-like aspects, professes the clean and fresh opening. The darjeeling tea beckons the invigorating bergamot to stew in the heart, and infuses it with its somewhat powdery and medicinal woodiness morphing the sharp citrus into a more fruity bent. Guaiacwood, with its honey and smoky features, and papyrus, with its withered grassy and light wood facets, serve as a background for the simmering brew, which has acquired a sweet and wet earthiness. The waiting base, with its soft and almost syrupy amber as well as its radiant and slightly soapy musk, tugs for recognition and carries the tea blend to its delightful drydown. This classy fragrance can be an all-season treat, and has average projection, becoming a skin scent, and good longevity.

    And, by the way, Midnight in Paris by Van Cleef & Arpels teeters on the feminine side.

    Check out YSL La Nuit de L'Homme.
    My favorite date night scent would be Dior Homme Intense, but it's a bit more pricey.
    Mont Blanc Individuel is not a bad choice either.
    I will also second the recommendation for Bulgari Pour Homme Soir

    Seconding this. Girls love it and it's an outstanding reasonably priced scent.

    Individuel attracts too much attention. Obsession Night is excellent and versatile.

    From your list, Individuel.
    I also love La Nuit De L'Homme

    My favorite by far from your list is Individuel by Montblanc. But you may or may not like it. It's kind of loud and "sexy", if you will. If you're looking for a more serious or sophisticated type evening scent then you may not like it. Personally, though, I love that it commands attention and is a bit "loud".
