    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 .

    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.

    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...

    I would recommend Dior Homme Intense or Tobacco Vanille.

    AVENTUS by Creed, no doubt.

    It's not a winter scent per se, but it's good all year round. Lasts forever and has nuclear bomb sillage.

    Otherwise, I suggest Rose 31 by Le Labo (as a winter scent). It's totally innoffensive, lasts forever, has great sillage and smells modern.

    Love Burberry London and I carry it in an atomizer as the longevity is sad
    I'm not a big fan of the Iris note in DHI and I hate the harshness in A*Men; however, both are beasts in projection and longevity.

    I'd recommend (in no particular order):
    Bogart Pour Homme
    M7
    Givenchy play Intense (I'm wearing it now )
    Fahrenheit
    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme
    Body Kouros

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport has great longevity and smells good too, but maybe isn't specifically a 'winter' fragrance. Tobacco Vanille from Tom Ford is a rich, warming scent, but from what I've read Pure Malt/Havane do a similar job (and cost less too).
