    Default Mont blanc legend, bleu de chanel, tobacco vanille for winter?

    What do you think? Which is best for the winter season and for college student (university). OR any other suggestions?

    Well, if you already have TV you can definitely use it for winter, since that is really where it shines. The colder the better. Bleu could probably be used, but I don't personally like it since it lacks character to my nose.

    I'm a college student as well, and this winter I'll be wearing Tobacco Vanille (once I can order it from a split), Pure Malt, New Haarlem, Burberry London, and some Amouage samples (jubilation, epic, honour, memoir) mostly.

    Well,I will definitely say Tobacco Vanille - but if your a collage student I wonder if the price tag is a consideration for you.

    Another suggestion would be Eau Des Beux (my favorite winter scent), along with Mont Blanc Individuel.

    I own Legend and have tried Bleu and TV. I would say that overall, TV works BEST as the weather has cooled down. Bleu can work in something like an office (or classroom) setting. Legend has surprised me. I thought it was mainly for warmer weather, but I've worn it a couple times in 30 and 40 degree weather, and it's handled itself nicely.

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    Put another plus sign for Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford. A very good alternative would be Eau de Baux by L'Occitane.

    Welcome to basenotes! I would not wear Chanel Bleu for sure, but it's not my kind of fragrance. I would suggest Tom fords' Tobacco Vanilla or Costume National if price is not an issue or for a cheaper price tag you could try Terre d Hermes or even cheaper is Rochas for men. Go out and sample as much as your nose can stand and enjoy yourself!

    Tobacco Vanille, followed by Bleu de Chanel.

    Definitely go with TV, followed by Legend. Not sure if Bleu will hold up in the cooler weather.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    I'd go with TV out of those choices.
