    Default Best "Cold night" or nighttime wardrobe Scent that turns heads...

    The scene is a cold fall night, formal, and the wardrobe is a nice long, wool or heavy jacket. Its not raining, but it is indeed chili, and a cold night, maybe in a nice metropolitan city.

    What fragrance are you going to wear to get noticed, but in a head-turning way? Try to stick to mainstream please :]

    Mainstream ? I'd probably go with La Nuit De L'homme and Dior Homme Intense.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    A solid dose of Burberry London would be my 1st choice if we're staying mainstrem. Prada Amber pour Homme might also work because it's formal.

    mainstream, though??? I mean, I agree (& you're choices are solid), there's far more Niche or high-end options for this scenario, but I guess I was thinking a more reasonably priced designer when he said mainstream.

    London would also be my suggestion. It's very popular but unique in scent. Most people notice it right away.

    The scenario conjured up Cuir Mauresque for me but I see there is a mainstream caveat, so I don't know, .... say Antaeus.

    Burberry London for Men by Burberry cries out for the cold so it may manifest all its glory.

    Heritage, Egoiste, A*Men Pure Havane, or Habit Rouge EdP would work.

    As others mentioned, LIDGPHEE, Dior Homme (regular or intense), and Eau Sauvage Parfum would fit the bill too.

    Errrr... Going mainstream is wayyyyy too limiting! :/ This is Basenotes remember!

    Okay... well... My vote goes to YSL Opium pour Homme. Just imagine walking from the cold street into a warm bar at midnight, unbuttoning your jacket to hang it up, and the warm, smooth spicy scent wafting out as an attractive young waitress (or waiter if you are so inclined) comes to take your coat...

    It's still a classic.
