    Default Winter modern fragrance that covers sillage, longevity, projection for men in their twenties.

    Hi guys, what's in your opinion the fragrance for men in their late twenties that is modern with good sillage, projection and longevity, not offensive and most importantly for winter?

    Hermes Vetiver Tonka, YSL La Nuit De L`Homme, Dior Homme Intense, VC&A Midnight in Paris -- are all good introductory fragrances IMO

    Welcome!

    Very many. I'd single out Chanel Egoiste (the regular one), warm sandalwoody with some candied fruits. Or Caron Yatagan, dark woody.

    Angel Men was the one to come to mind when I read the topic title. If you can't stand the top or think it's offensive, the currently still available Angel Men Pure Leather might be up your alley.

    Pure Havane. Had this on today , great stuff , honeyed cherries with a touch of tobacco . Longevity was 6-8 hours , with good projection in the first 4 hours.
    Other great ones : YSL La Nuit , L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme , Dior Homme Intense , Fahrenheit ( it may be old , but it's timeless ) , Le Male Terrible ( not the original one ) .
    I would've said Burberry London but you mentioned that you want good longevity and projection .

    Eau des Baux by L'Occitane (Tobacco Vanille "Lite"). If you have the $$$, Tobacco Vanille itself, or get in on one of the various splits in the splits forum.

    Burberry London almost wins this contest, but longevity is an issue. I bet it would last longer if you paired it with the Burberry London shower gel though.

    Angel Men, but try before you buy.
    Pure Malt (projects almost as well as A*Men, but does not last as long).

    My thoughts as well....London was the first to come to mind when you put winter & modern together, but it just seems that most people have projection & sillage issues with it. I find the longevity's ok and the rest can be improved by a few more sprays, or layering a couple sprays on top of each other in a few key areas...
