    Default Most versatile, every day frag?

    Which fragrance do you think accomplishes that? A n everyday scent that people find pleasing and is something you put on when you can't decide? Just curious, I could use such a fragrance.

    1. Pure Havane
    2. Menthe Fraiche
    3. Tobacco Vanille
    4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
    5. Green Irish Tweed
    6. Fahrenheit
    7. Musc Ravageur
    8. Tonka Imperial
    9. Gucci Pour Homme II
    10. Dior Homme Intense

    Very subjective - for me whatever I choose to wear on any given morning just before heading to work.

    Sycomore works well for me. Fresh and pleasant, and good also for the warmer days here in DC, but at the same time with the woods and smoke adding some complexity which goes well also for more elegant occasions.

    Troisieme homme is also an all around for me.

    IMO, a cheap, super versatile frag is L`homme by YSL

    Terre d'Hermes
    Wonderwood
    Dior Homme Sport
    L'Homme
    GIT

    I do realize the point of the thread is to highlight a single frag, but I'm still trying to decide. The answer is somewhere in the five I listed thought, at least for me.

    That's where my mind first went. Like it/hate it, it fits what you're asking. I'd also agree with GIT and L'Homme.

    +1 on Sycomore. Works in every season and on any day or night. Great for work, clubbing or formal wearings.

    Yes, Bleu de Chanel by Chanel is an all-season scent that thrives in spring, summer and fall.

    Another to consider is Infusion d'Homme by Prada.
