    Post POLL: Which is best on a date/socialising setting!? Pure Malt, Ambre Narguile, Midnight in Paris...

    I have found that the problem with having a really good collection or trying to get that perfect collection (like 90% of us on here are trying to do, knowing that we never will lol) is years down the line when you get some really good ones is it can get confusing what to wear at times. Or is that just me??? I find myself mentally battling at times as to what I should wear, then 10 minutes later washing it off because "I changed my mind" .

    In your opinion, what do you feel is IDEAL when in the company of a lady friend or in general social environments?

    What I usually wear most in order:

    1. Midnight in Paris
    2. Armani Code
    3. Pure Malt
    4. La Nuit de l`Homme
    5. Ambre Narguile
    6. Pure Havane
    7. Allure Pour Homme


    Honorable mentions/What else I have:

    1. Chanel - Platinum Egoïste (Work Scent)
    2. YSL- L'Homme (a bit boring)
    3. Love & Luck (GYM)
    4. Dior Homme Sport original(Summer, boring)
    5. HM Hanae Mori (A bit too feminine)
    Top Fragrances

    1. Ambre Narguile

    I'd probably say Armani Code although I like and have all seven in your top list and 4 out of the 5 in your second grouping.

    Tough, I voted La Nuit de L'Homme, though Midnight in Paris is absolutely perfect for the same task.
    On a side note, before I got into this hobby, Armani Code was the only fragrance I had, but MIP smells similar but so much better I find (the leather vibe that is). MIP I hope it becomes a legend, the bottle is flat out stunning, and the smell carries its own too, totally underrated

    I fully agree this. However I disagree, I DO NOT want this to become a legend(although it deserves to) I HATE smelling like other people, I like to have my own unique aroma not the "You smell like Mat" comment I used to get everytime I wore D&G the one lol... It is my hidden GEM nobody knows about it but the fragrance community ...

    Ambre Narguile is a fine scent for some occasions, but it is too sweet and "apple pie-ish" for a date IMO. Armani Code is a very nice choice, but I find Pure Malt and Pure Havane garner the most compliments from what you have listed. I think either of those would be yoru best choices - except maybe in very warm weather, in which case I would probably have to say MiP.

    I think Ambre Narguile smells a bit too much like holiday spice potpourri.

    I voted for Pure Havane.

    Its funny you say that because I have only got compliments from from my girlfriend and she only likes it because it reminds of Mip. I always wear it but never get a single comment from anyone...

    I'm surprised by how well Midnight In Paris is doing here. I guess I may need to seek that one out. Does it differ enough from Bvlgari Black to make it worth owning if I already have BB?

    I too am surprised.

    I love PM and based off the compliments it would be my go to, specifically for dates I would also throw in La Nuit

    I went with La Nuit.
    It's "sexy" enough for a date and well known to where it won't come off as a "weird" fragrance to others. Even though everyone knows it, it still gets compliments.

    On a date, I usually wear nothing. Whereas most guys come off as trying too hard where they spray a ton of cologne, I wear the most exclusive kind of cologne that is available to a man, even more exclusive than Musc Ravaguer. And that's Nothing.

    Ok, here's what I think of these fragrances:

    Midnight in Paris - i enjoy this one (very underrated), great for a safe social setting
    Armani Code - not bad. not original and a bit synthetic, but i like it.
    Pure Malt - good choice, especially at the drydown
    La Nuit de l`Homme - i know this is considered to be a deity on BN, but i just don't like it
    Ambre Narguile - haven't tried this one
    Pure Havane - smells like someone chewed tobacco and took a cherry-honey lozenge to ease the throat pain
    Allure Pour Homme - very good fresh (a little bit floral scent), sophisticated and timeless

    Put another plus for Pure Havane.

    Two sprays (chest and back) are enough for me: the scent lingers and it leaves a subtle sillage. The drydown is superb and very enjoyable.

    Armani Code seems to be the winner among women, though this is a large generalization. I'm not a fan of Midnight in Paris at all. Personally, I'd go with either Ambre Narguile or Pure Havane, and on most days wear Pure Havane. Ambre Narguile to me smells like straight cinnamon, which doesn't work all the time. When it does, it's unbeatable.
    Current Top Five:

    1. Creed Green Irish Tweed
    2. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    3. Hermes Concentre d'Orange Verte
    4. Bond No. 9 New Haarlem
    5. Creed Original Vetiver

    I find MiP to be more similar to Armani Code than Bvlgari Black. It smells like Armanic Code minus the star anise/licorice smell.

    I've been considering MiP myself. I enjoyed Code, but it had some sort of nauseating note in it -bad enough to where I had to wash my arms within 1 hour.
    Would you say that MiP is more of a toned down Code?

    Not necessarily toned down b/c it projects and lasts longer than Code on me. It is a slightly more feminine version of Code. It's perfect for romantic occasions. Plus the bottle is absolutely gorgeous.
