    Default What would you add to my collection?

    Once I've got rid of the fragrances I don't like or am not too fussed about, I'll be left with the following:

    Le Male - Winter, Night
    La Nuit De L'Homme - Winter, Day/Night
    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme - Winter, Day
    Cool Water - Summer, Night
    Versace Eau Fraiche - Summer, Day
    Acqua Di Gio Essenza - Summer, Day

    I want to add 1 and 1 only to these! Feel free to check my wardrobe and check my ratings for fragrances I've previously owned.

    Which area do you think I'm short and what would you add?

    I've been considering The One and Armani Code.

    Thanks!

    Your missing a true gourmand for winter nights like :

    Givenchy Gentlemen
    Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense
    Fahrenheit Absolute- not a true gourmand, but good all around.


    Le Male is more of a all strong vanillic frag that works in all weather.

    I would look for a good all-around. Something that can be worn Spring/Fall, cool Summer nights, mild Winter days.

    Burberry London pops in my head for one to sample. However, you mentioned D&G The One--which would be solid as well.

    Forget about D&G The One, unless you want to carry the bottle around with you so you can re-apply every 20 minutes, it just doesn't last. Maybe a Thierry Mugler fragrance, A*Men, Pure Havane, and Pure Malt are all great.

    Gucci PH 2 or Bleu De Channel or thinking outside the box, dunno what kind of cash you are looking to spend but you could go for a niche.

    Molecule 01...it can be layered with ANYTHING, works great in all seasons, and spectacularly in summer. Very Niche and nearly a guarantee that your friends will not have ever heard of it. It's impossibly complex and at the same time infinitely simple. You will not be disappointed if you give it a fair try.

    I recommend trying these:
    The one - Winter/summer, night/day. Preferably when you go out with your girlfriend because smells GREAT but doesn't project and lasts too much on some people, so it's going to please the one close to you. (You should try it on your skin, some people say the longevity is very short but on my skin it is avarage/good and there are some that have 8 hours projection)
    A*men/Pure malt/Pure havane - Winter/ night. (Very strong projection and longevity, the opposite of the one, good if you want to go to a pub/nightclub and be noticed by everyone.I'm not saying you can't wear on a date but some people think that it can become agressive if wear this very close to someone for a long time)
    LIDGE - Winter / night (A masterpiece, very classy and unique.It's the midpoint, not too a "date only" like the one and not "SMELL ME" like thierry mugler's ones. But also projects and lasts a lot.)
    DHI - Winter / night (Also a masterpiece,classy and unique. This one has an elegant and a "sexy touch" that LIDGE does not have. Also lasts and projects very good.)'

    Anyway you have to see what is better for you. If you have a girlfriend and go out with her a lot, and almost dont go to nightclubs/pubs/houseparties: Mostly likely choosing the one.
    If you don't have a girlfriend and go to nightclubs/pubs/houseparties a lot: Mostly likely choosing A*men/pure havane/pure malt.
    If you have a girlfriend and go out with her but also go out with nightclubs/pubs with your friends: Mostly likely choosing DHI and LIDGE.
