    Default 2 Months in... Hows my Wardrobe and What am I Missing?

    I'm loving this game and I am looking to keep it going but I feel like I've reached a plateau. I don't know which direction to take next so maybe you guys can recognize the weaknesses of my rotation and give me some direction. Thanks in advance...

    Gucci PH 2
    Dior Homme Intense
    Mugler Cologne
    YSL Rive Gauche
    YSL Live Jazz
    YSL La Nuit
    Tommy Bahama
    Tommy Bahama Sets Sail
    Juicy Couture Dirty English
    Creed GIT
    Creed MI
    Creed Aventus
    Chanel Platinum Egoiste
    Chanel Bleu De Chanel
    Nautica Voyage
    Azzaro Pour Homme

    I would probably take out the Azarro's, Dirty English and the Tony Bahamas (unless you really like them).

    Otherwise though, you have a reall nice collection. But make sure you wear all of them. For example, Mugler Cologne was recommended so much, I bought it, I liked it, but I barely wore it, so I swapped it.

    Suggestions: Burberry London, 1 Million, New Haarlem, Silver Mountain Water, Original Santal, Virgin Island Water

    Very good rotation. You seem to prefer scents on the fresher side. Perhaps you can add something heavier, like a leather. For instance, Estee Lauder Azuree, Aramis, or Knize Ten (the latter somewhat difficult to find). Also, you could add something a little quirky, like Bulgari Black (with a rubber note), or Lush Breath of God (vetiver smoke).

    If you have the money to buy all that in only 2 months, you have the money to spend in samples and test properly the most discussed brands and fragrances in the forums.

    That's a very good start!

    Maybe (if it interests you) some leather / incense / oud fragrances. Maybe something like by Kilian Incense Oud?

    Of couse, you should just read reviews and look for notes that might interest you, and sample away.

    Nice collection dude. I think you have the Creed’s covered, I have the same 3 and I consider them to be the best (Would buy VIW if it lasted more than an hour)

    Suggested editions:

    Rochas Man or Givenchy Play Intense (Very similar in all regards)
    Japur Homme – Boucheron
    Fahrenheit
    L’instant de Guerlain (EDT or EDP)
    Prada Amber
    Bvlgari Black and/or Midnight in Paris

    Nice.
    I see a few of the soapy classic-style.
    +1 Fahrenheit.
    Maybe something heavy like Norne by Slumberhouse, or Back to Black by By Killian.
    Tobacco Vanille?
    Push a natural boundary with Un Jardin en Mediterranee by Hermes..

    Your wardrobe is fine if one note. You could use florals, orientals, leathers, a woodsy, a gourmand. I suggest you find a nice tobacco, a soft citrus floral, and a gourmand to grow your nose into, and work your way into leathers, musks, and chypres.

    I agree with Nosebud that you need something heavier for when the mood strikes or for colder weather. I'll echo his suggestions of TV and Norne, and add Chergui, Sova, and Burberry London (not that heavy) into the mix.

    2 months? I'd say chill out for a second and start using some of your cologne before buying more. Maybe check out a 12 step program asap!

    Nice collection!!! You must have won the lottery...I would get YSL L'Homme Libre if I got the chance...I LOVE Versace Pour Homme for a Flanker, Bvlgari Man or Black can be found in dept. stores for not much money also.

    To be honest, I'd reduce your wardrobe by half - take note over the most frequently used fragrances and keep them. From then on, sample other, more niche houses e.g. Parfums d'Empire, Sonoma Scent Studios, L'Artisan Parfumeur, Serge Lutens.

    I'd start with sampling and working out the notes / themes you like and only then buying full bottles.
