    Default Scents that you love but don't see yourself wearing

    There are a lot of scents out there that I think are extremely made and well done. I just don't see myself wearing scents like Musc Ravageur and Tonka Imperiale at all but I appreciate the quality and depth of those scents. What are some scents that you love but don't see yourself wearing?!

    Everything in my collection, I love and as a result wear.

    Narciso Rodriguez Essence for women. Received a bottle of this by mistake once. Very nice but just nicer on a woman than on me.

    Diptyque Philosykos. A super fragrance, very well made and an authentic fig note. Just can't seem to wear it though. Why do I want to smell of figs?

    Amouage Tribute is a great fragrance but I find it just to opulent to wear as a everyday fragrance and too expensive to buy just for special occasions. For me wearing this casually would be like going to work wearing a tuxedo or going to the supermarket driving a lamborghini.

    1881. Blind bought it because it was really, really cheap. It's nice, but just not something I see myself reaching for ever.

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Intenza. Gorgeous fragrance but borders perilously close to 'too feminine' to my nose.

    Egoiste - had a decant & think it's great, but just could never bring myself to wear it over others in my collection.
    L'air du Desert Morocain - have a decant & it's a beautiful fragrance, but I just can't picture for the life of me when and wear I would wear this out in public.
    A*Men - like it, wouldn't say I love it, but again, just don't picture myself wearing it over many others I have.

    In all likelihood, I probably just need some time to get even more comfortable with these scents and perhaps I'll change my tune in the future.

    It's usually the other way around. I smell something that I could see myself wearing, but usually don't love it enough to purchase.

    A men, pure Malt. Im a big fan of the house and the original Amen, BUT the Pure Malt does not last on my skin as the original. To me its too similar on the dry down so I stick with the original!

    Quite a few scents, because of a few different reasons:

    Braukmann Classic by Hildegard Braukmann- I simply love this orange-dominated, EDC style scent, yet would only wear it if it lasted longer (on my skin, its longevity is quite a joke, even if the notes are still great)
    Several Guerlains, especially feminine ones- love them, but am reluctant to wear them, not just because some accords may lack unisex suitability, but also because of a quite limited versatility

    I honestly can't say that I've run across a scent that I like that I wouldn't also wear.
