    Default Which fragrance(s) is a "must try."

    Hey, guys. I'm going on a sample spree journey at TPC. Which frangrance(s) is a "must try." I currently own Bleu de Chanel, Aventus, Le Male, La Nuit de L'Homme, Versace's Pour Homme, Acqua Di Gio, Giogrio Armani's Attitude, 1 Million, Green Irish Tweed, Terre d'Hermes, Dior Homme Intense, Prada's Amber Pour Homme, Burberry Brit, and Burberry London. I don't know if age is a factor, but if it is, I'm 25.

    Bulgari Black is worth knowing about, as well as LIDGE. Both are *quite* distinctive, and even if you hate them they will stretch your sense of what perfume can be.

    I think you should look to try some scents outside your comfort zone and look to some older discontinued scents along with some more current ones... A vintage 80s powerhouse like Giorgio for Men would make a good choice, IMO. A nice soft floral modern leather like Cuir Pleine Fleur by Heeley would be a good choice for that group... A classic hardcore leather like Knize Ten. A nice modern rose scent like Portrait of a Lady by Frederic Malle and/or a more traditional masculine English rose like No.89 by Floris. Finally, I would look at a classic fougère like Patou pour Homme Privé. Oh yes, then there is always the old standby of what many call the greatest masculine ever released (I am not one of them, but love and own it nonetheless)... Patou pour Homme.

    That is just a small sampling, but it would be a nice start... Good luck!

    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)

    Thanks for the recommendations.

    I've tried...
    Gucci Pour Homme II - I sampled this fragrance a few months ago. I wasn't crazy about the tea note.
    L'Instant de Guerlain Extreme - I also sampled this a few months ago - Amazing fragrance.
    A*Men - This was my high school fragrance. I liked it at the time, but now if I wear it, I'm reminded of braces and homework.
    Midnight In Paris - I sampled this a while back because I was told it was similar to Dior Homme. Definitely some similarities, but overall I just wasn't crazy about it.

    All of the other fragrances you guys mentioned I haven't tried before. So assuming TPC has them, I'll order them and let you guys know what I think.
