    no such thing as everyone has completely different tastes and since I'm not into the too "out there" stuff my recommendation would seem generic to a lot of the community

    Fall/Winter: Angel Man Pure Leather (Mugler) (use Axe Dark Temptation Wash/Deodorant to compliment it)

    I don't believe in breaking them up by seasons or by notes for the most part, but I do sort them my own way. My tastes are a bit less sophisticated/complex than many here, but maybe more "functional"

    Every man should have a romantic scent: YSL La Nuit de l'homme, LIDG
    Aquatics aren't popular here, but some are nice, and women love them: Bvlgari Aqva
    Big, sophisticated, and complex for when you feel that way: LIDGE, YSL M7
    Just because: Gucci Pour Homme II, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver,
    Smell great in the office, out with the guys, casual date: Dior Homme Sport, 2008 or 2012, best of the sport genre and incredibly versatile, 2008 being a bit lighter and sportier, 2012 being a bit more romantic

    There are no Must-Haves, in my opinion. Buy what you love, and only you can know what you love. But this is my list of 5 that really should be tried. And when I say tried, I don't mean smelled. I mean sampled and worn.

    - Dior Homme
    - Green Irish Tweed
    - Knize Ten
    - Kouros
    - Old Spice (Yes, really)

    Winter: Tobacco Vanille. I'd be quite content if this were my only fragrance from November-February. Honorable mention: Egoiste.

    Spring: Aventus. It says, "Yeah, the heavy days of winter are over but I'm still a force to contend with." It's a great transition from the heavier winder scents to the fresh and light summer selections. Honorable mention: Bleu de Chanel or Dior Homme Eau (which, the more I wear, the more I enjoy).

    Summer: it's a tie! Le Labo Bergamote 22 or Chanel Allure Homme Sport Cologne. The AHS cologne is rapidly becoming my go-to Chanel. After a shower at the gym, it's simply perfect.

    Fall: Hello, Dior Homme Intense! Welcome back to the rotation. Honorable mention: L'Instant de Guerlain.

    First, I think it's important to determine how you wish to categorize. Some would say by season, some perhaps by occasion, while I would do so by accord genre (can't recall technical term anymore)...

    1. Aquatic: Agua de Loewe El
    2. Woody: Lalique Encre Noire
    3. Spicy: Dior Aqua Fahrenheit
    4. Floral: Salvatore Ferragamo PH

    After all these years around this hobby, I realized I like lavander, vetiver and patch, that I regard longevity and sillage - wise scents as off puting and that inexpernsive options can be well complimented.

    Based on these facts, if I'd have to choose only five scents, these would be my options:

    Lavander: Caron┤s Pour Un Homme or lavander water from a local high-end haberdasher (James Smart's Leslie).

    Vetiver: Guerlain's. Vintage Carven's is better, but discontinued.

    Patch: any good quality patch oil or Givenchy Gentleman or Coromandel or Fueguia's Caoba or Fueguia's Otro Poema de los Dones - in all cases, applied very lightly.

    Tradtional Eau de Cologne or Eau de Cologne-like scents: Dior's Eau Sauvage or Monsieur de Givenchy or Chanel pour Monsieur or "Colonia Tradicional Inglesa" (Traditional English Style Eau de Cologne) from a high-end haberdasher.
