    Default 2012 Two-Week Challenge

    Hey all:

    Two-week business trip coming up for next week and the week after. I'd like to repeat the two-week challenge I did last year:
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/293...nge?highlight=

    At least this time, I'm not writing this post from the airport. Have a look at my wardrobe, and suggest something I can wear for two weeks straight. Yes, I know I can bring decants/more than one with me - but Rive Gauche was such a winner last year all by itself.

    Additional criteria - good for day/evening; going to Paris and Frankfurt. Going to be locked in a conf. room for much of this, although there may be some chance for a little fun in the evenings. I'm checking a bag so I don't need to worry about size for carry-on.

    I'm leaving on Sunday - thanks in advance for the input.

    You have a few that could be worn for two weeks straight:

    Gucci Pour Homme II
    Tom Ford Extreme
    Sycomore
    Egoiste
    AdP Colonia
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver


    I would never want to wear the same thing every day, but if I had to, these would probably be at the top of my list from your wardrobe.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Brückner - Aoud 1
    4. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    5. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    6. Dior - Vetiver
    7. Les Nez - Turtle Vetiver Back
    8. Neela Vermeire - Trayee
    9. Amouage - Jubilation XXV
    10. Creed - Royal English Leather

    Sycomore seems to me perfect both for all day office meetings (fresh, pleasant) and for evenings (some deep woods).

    I'd also be deciding between GPHII and Tom Ford Extreme.

    From my wardrobe, I'd chose Penhaligon's Opus 1870, probably.

    You're one of the few to have Mark Birley for Men in you wardrobe. Take that one, it will serve you good.

    I'd take either Egoiste, Habit Rouge, or Rive Gauche. You did RG before, and the other 2 are maybe a bit less versatile, but I've worn both for all occasions and I think they would suit.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions. As of right now (Wednesday afternoon) I'm contemplating Sycomore, or maybe both Tom Fords (Extreme and GV). I'll post the "winner" when I really decide.

    I loves me some GphII. I'm wearing it today, in fact, but I'd vote for Tom Ford's Grey Vetiver.

    Black Walnut! I hadn't even thought of it as a contender, but it might be just the thing.

    OK, so trying this today. Not really making the cut, sad to say. It's nice enough, but just that. I always think of BW as the inferior Burberry London, but that's me.

    The winner is: Burberry London
