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 :]
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.
1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
2. Creed - Aventus
3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
4. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
5. Clive Christian - 1872
6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
7. Xerjoff - Nio
8. Neela Vermeire - Bombay Bling
9. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
10. Chanel - Allure Homme Edition Blanche
London would also be my suggestion. It's very popular but unique in scent. Most people notice it right away.

Givenchy Play Intense
"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". I don't want to miss that
Current Top 12 Spring: | Chanel Allure Blanche | Guerlain Homme Intense | Dior Fahrenheit | Givenchy pour Homme | Carolina Herrera for Men | Narciso Rodriguez Him | T. Mugler A*Men Sunessence | Trussardi Inside | C. Herrera Chic | Azzaro PH | M. Kors Michael for Men | Pal Zileri Sartoriale |
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.
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
Tobacco Vanille, Burberry London or Bogart pour Homme (from my experience)
...Terre d'Hermès: succes guaranteed...!
Dior Homme Intense, Royal Oud, Idol De Lubin, Spicebomb, London, Back to Black, Pure Havane ... ah ... endless possibilities. What a great time of year for wearing awesome fragrances
Tobacco Vanille, Jaipur edp, Midnight in Paris edp, Black Afghano.
Mainstream? I would say DHI... Overall I would go with Musc Ravageur or my new love Noir de Noir.
My current top ten:
1. Spice and Wood
2. Epic Man
3. Noir de Noir
4. Tonka Imperiale
5. Musc Ravageur
6. Bois d'argent
7. Apple Brandy
8. Dior Homme Intense
9. Tobacco Vanille
#TOP 5#: Antico Caruso, Penhaligons Racquets,Creed BayRhum Vetiver,Domenico Caraceni,Castle Forbes 1445
DHI and Musc Ravageur. Maybe Nuit L'Homme too.
V&R Spicebomb will have the desired effect......in the mainstream category as you stated
1. Dior Homme Original
2. Musc Ravaguer
3. Portrait of a Lady
4. Noir de Noir
5. L Instant Guerlain pour Homme Extreme
6. New Haarlem
7. Pure Coffee
8. Blu Mediterraneo Sicilian Almond
9. Rose 31
10. Spiritueuse Double Vanille
I almost cried tears of joy when I looked outside, saw the fog, took a step out, and finally felt COLD weather. Frag season is back gentlemen!
My choice for this topic is of course Jean Paul Gaultier's Le Male, but since no one wants to hear me say Le Male over and over again, I'm going to go with La Nuit de L'homme.
Must de Cartier Pour Homme.
In my swap list: Gucci Pour Homme (2003) BNIB.
I'm looking for Reflection Man or Andy Warhol (silver bottle w/Andy's face)
Another vote for Dior Homme Intense.
But if I really wanted to turn heads I would probably wear something a little more old school and daring like Chanel Antaeus or Aramis Havana.
Based strictly on my experiences: Gucci Envy for Men.
