    Default Looking for a nice casual evening scent..

    Hi,

    I'm looking for a casual evening scent (designer rather than niche) that can be used for a range of activities, whether it be going to the cinema, bowling or a quiet drink in a not-too-overcrowded bar. I don't want something purely aquatic or very heavy and formal. At the same time it can have some sweetness but not be excessive. Finally must have half decent longevity (at least 4 hours) and have some projection so that it smelling it doesn't require people shoving their noses in my neck, but not beast mode so it dominates the room.

    Any recommendations?

    Excellent recommendation. May I also suggest, Midnight in Paris parfum? Fantastic casual, night out fragrance.

    Regular Dior Homme should suit perfectly.

    Midnight in Paris can become sweet and cloying when over sprayed so I would say go with Tom Ford Extreme.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven
