    Default Having a hard time choosing between all these fragrances

    I posted on here before trying to see which one would be better between givenchy pi or egoiste. Egoiste seems to have more love on here from what I have seen. However I've really started taking an interest in colognes lately especially the gourmands and can't make up my mind on which 1 or 2 to buy next. Here is what I'm debating between:

    Egoiste Chanel
    L'instant de Guerlain
    La Nuit De L'homme
    Rochas Man
    Givenchy Pi
    Lolita Lempicka Au Maculine
    New Haarlem Bond No 9
    Dior Homme Intense
    Pure Malt Thierry Mugler

    As you can tell I have more than a few Im choosing between and its a tough decision. I have Le Male and Angel Men so far and like both. If you were me and had to pick two which one's would you choose and why?

    I highly recommend Rochas Man if your just starting to get into gourmands. It's a good balance of everything IMO. New Haarlem takes it & amps up the coffee, amber, etc. it's great, but can be overly sweet for some. DHI & LIDGE are also must tries.

    My favorite are Egoiste (as in the other poll), and Dior Homme Intense. Lolita Lempicka is good if you like licorice a lot, as that is the main note; I also like Pure Malt, but if you have already A*Men, perhaps you can start from something different.

    There are a lot of really nice ones in here. I say just pick the one you want the most for now and eventually you can get to buying all of them.

    Givenchy Pi and Rochas Man are good, but they are not up to par with some of the other ones on this list.

    New Haarlem is my favorite from that list by far. But Pure Malt and Chanel Egoiste are also very good.

    Do you like Pure Malt over Angel Men? I've heard the beginning in pure malt is better but the drydown is better in A men

    I like both equally, and find them relatively similar. It's just that they highlight slightly different notes, so in the end, it's really about which note one prefers. Now there is also a Pure Leather variation.

    Well, you could do worse than anything on your list. The main question would be weather you want to have a mainly sweet vanilla collection or if you want to branch out a bit.

    If it were me, I'd choose Lolita Lempicka au Masculin and New Haarlem. L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme is excellent but I'm not as fond of L'Instant. Pure Malt is good but not different enough from AMen to add to a small collection at this point.
