Prada Amber ph Intense.
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 :]
Prada Amber ph Intense.
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.
Tom Ford Extreme
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.
Tom Ford Extreme, bt Kilian Incense Oud, or Bond No. 9 New York Amber.
Current Winter Favorites:
1. House of Matriarch - Blackbird
2. Brückner - Aoud 1
3. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
4. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Generation Man
5. Creed - Royal Oud
6. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
7. Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 - Mortal Skin
8. Ormonde Jayne - Black Gold
9. Creed - Royal English Leather
10. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
London would also be my suggestion. It's very popular but unique in scent. Most people notice it right away.

"I love fragrances because they provide a sheer endless variety: there is a scent for every occasion, mood or feeling. Standing before my collection in the morning matching a perfume to my needs is one of the most enjoyable things in my day..."
My Top 10 Winter :: T. Mugler Taste of Fragrance :: Amouage Interlude :: Victor & Rolf Antidote :: Davidoff Zino :: Escada Magnetism :: Penhaligon's Halfeti :: T. Mugler Pure Malt :: Dueto Golden Boy :: Tom Ford Noir EDP :: Davidoff Leather Blend ::
The scenario conjured up Cuir Mauresque for me but I see there is a mainstream caveat, so I don't know, .... say Antaeus.
Dior Homme Intense.
Current top 10 (No order):
1. Pure Havane
2. Menthe Fraiche
3. Tobacco Vanille
4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
5. Green Irish Tweed
7. Musc Ravageur
8. Tonka Imperial
9. Gucci Pour Homme II
10. Dior Homme Intense
Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum would seal the deal.
- A lot of people thinks that they live when the only thing they do is simply exist.
Dior Homme Intense or M7.
Get those gourmands out of the closet!!
LIDGE for me
Arpege pour Homme
Dior Homme (/Intense)
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.

Add another vote to the following:
Regular Egoiste (not the platinum) by Chanel
Original A*Men / Angel for Men or A*Men Pure Havane by Thierry Mugler
Vintage M7 by YSL
L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme (even the regular would work) by Guerlain
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.
Noir de Noir
Absolue pour le soir
Dior Homme Intense
CURRENT TOP 5
1. Dior Homme Intense
2. Creed Aventus
3. Tom Ford Extreme
4. Gucci Pour Homme II
5. Terre d'Hermes
