What are you doing for New Years?
Going out/having fun with the boys? 1 Million
Family get together/indoor party? Bleu De Chanel
At the bar/club? 1 Million, Bleu, La Nuit
La Nuit honestly works for any occasion. If you like one more than the other, don't worry too much about what you're doing, just purchase the one that smells best. Trust me, 99% of the people around you aren't going to think "that fragrance is inappropriate for this event..."
Blue De Chanel
Clubbing/partying: La Nuit or One Million. I prfer La Nuit. Bleu is also outstanding. They are all sooooooooo good. Now I'm confused. lol
Of the ones you mentioned, I'd recommend Bleu de Chanel.
Current Top Five:
1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford
Ysl La Nuit
And learn how to set up a poll.
1. La Nuit
2. Bleu de Chanel
I've only wore it once but Costume National 21 is simply fantastic! Your question sounds like you're looking more for a party scent so unfortunately it would probably fall short. But I doubt you're buying a cologne just for one day so go with it anyway!
If you're looking to grab attention, use 1 Million. I like that one as well but it would never be a signature scent for me.
Ditto on the Bleu de Chanel. It is an excellent fragrance. Very versatile also
of the ones you listed, bleu
Yes, +1. I concur.
Bleu de Chanel is a decent, contemporary scent - and while it smells fair, to me...it offers nothing really "special".
La Nuit de l'Homme definitely does. You may want to consider other scents outside of these...let us know if you are open to suggestions.
“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
Im going out clubbing for New Years. DHI is currently my signature scent but I want to get something else since the bottle is going by quickly. I have about 15 other colognes but nothing is on DHIs level. And yes im open to suggestions. There seems to be no clear cut winner judging by this thread.
I would go with Costume National 21 of those choices for sure, as it is the only one I like.
