    Need more info. So far all we know is you want something that is a) work friendly, and b) awesome. What fragrances do you like, notes etc?

    It has to be something acceptable at the workplace. Something that's not offensive. Under $75. I have adg and leau dllsey already but I feel so bored with these right now. And with the winter fragrances I don't really have a preference just something to start my interests. I've been meaning to try Rochas man, lidge/lidg, and new Harlem (something about gourmands has my interests) but am open to pretty much anything. I don't really know my preferences yet

    Try Eau des Baux by L'Occitane. It is a quality fragrance with an affordable price tag. Sweet, but not cloying. The scent is very pleasant to the nose.

    I like a lot Chanel Egoiste, a warm sandalwoody that's elegant and not too loud. It is probably $85, so a touch above the limit.

    Try:

    L'Essence de Cerruti by Cerruti - One is initially treated to an invigorating bergamot, with its orangey bittersweetness and peppery facets. The freshness of the bergamot commingles with the compost-like and ever-so-slight barnyard aspects of white pepper. Segueing to the middle, the mintiness of birch encases the fresh opening, and infuses its wintergreen sweetness. A raw and somewhat phenolic leather wafts in the background along with the hay-like character of saffron. Transitioning to the comforting base, a creamy cedar infuses its resinous and camphoraceous woodiness, along with the sweetly vanillic and faintly earthy quality of amber. A sensual, fur/skin-like and warm musk also presents. An alluring drydown ensues. This masculine composition is well blended, and has good longevity, 8+ hours, and average projection, being light enough for an office scent. Given its very reasonable, price point, this versatile and somewhat elegant composition is worthy of purchase.

    I agree. These hit both needs. The Calvin Klein Encounter I have on would also work well.

    so many suggestions out there i need to try out. have done some more research from what everyone has said plus some of my own and came up with a list of possible both work and winter fragrance choices.
    work: gucci PH II, chanel egoiste/allure (not sure yet, got a sample of allure and liked it, but not sure if i love it enough to purchase), boss bottled or eau de baux
    winter: rochas man, LIDGE/LIDG (not sure which), M7, and possible givenchy play intense or pi (again not sure which, tried both and loved them)
    what do you think of the list? I will be able to get 3-5 total so if there are any others to consider let me know.
