    Default Your the 'average joe' which two frags do you live with for the rest of your life?

    Everyone knows these people. They buy one designer frag that they usually hear about through word of mouth or often recommended by a woman. They will wear it every occasion often over-applying. Put yourself in their shoes if your the average joe and had to restrict yourself to one summer and one winter fragrance what would they be?

    Keep in mind being the average joe price will be a factor and you know nothing of niche frags. Ideally these won't necessarily be your favourite frags nor will they be rare but two that are universally pleasing. For me those would be...

    Summer:

    Winter:

    Eau Sauvage is a good call for summer.

    For winter I'd take Polo Modern Reserve.

    I don't quite get this.
    If you are by definition uninformed then surely you will choose the ones that are advertised and recommended to you. Are you really asking "What is the most commercial crowd pleasing scent? " or even "What is the biggest selling scent? "
    If so a quick google search should answer it.
    This just came up in no particular order from the perfume shop's best sellers:

    "From top left: Chanel Allure, Armani Code, Terre D’Hermes, Joop!, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, Boss Bottled, Dolce & Gabbana The One, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male, L’eau d’Issey Pour Homme, Davidoff Cool Water, Paco Rabanne 1 Million."

    Strangely no mention of ADG..

    Perhaps this is more useful:

    No, I don't know "these people". And what makes you think that they don't know any so called niche fragrances? Creed's, for example, are readily available in department stores. They might not be geeky enough to know that they are niche though, that's true.

    When I was an "average joe", the only place I went to was Macy's, and some known local fragrance shops around here. I did not even enter Sephora because I thought it's only for women's.

    My friends here thought the same way about Sephora, until I sort of "introduced" it to them. One friend even said "They have men's cologne here?", and another friend never heard of Terre D'Hermes until I brought him the bottle to sample.

    If I were the same person I was before, I would have no distinction between Summer and Winter fragrances; and I'd probably pick Bleu de Chanel as my cologne.

    The answer holds no mystery:
    1. The most popular (sales).
    2. The 2nd most popular.
    Regardless of wearing appropriateness / suitability... as I believe the 'average' gives it little, if any, attention. Decades back, it was Grey Flannel year 'round. Fast forward... AdG, same. Fast forward... A*men, same. The cologne du jour is always in the air.
