    From your list I'd pick DHI, MiP, then The One since it seems like you already have enough daytime/fresh scents.

    Another vote for DHI, which I suspect will a bump La Nuit out of it's job as primary date/night scent.

    My next choice after that would be Fahrenheit.

    From your list: DHI, MIP, Fahrenheit & Mugler Cologne are all very good ones IMO.

    Hey - welcome to Basenotes!

    Great choices. I don't think you can go wrong. I think DHI is a nice new one for your wardrobe to grow in a new direction. I love Fahrenheit, too, but it took me a while to come to grips with it. And it's still strong stuff. I just recently wore too much to work - I was zoned out and applied something like 5 sprays. I had to hide out until noon!

    In your list, I'd go for DHI and the Mugler cologne. DHI is warm and suits elegant occasions as well, the Mugler cologne is fun and fresh.

    If you want a couple more things to try, I'd recommend bulgari Black, which has a fun rubber note.

    +5 on Bulgari Black - one of the most imaginative designer offerings out there. I love that one.

    Can't go wrong with Dior Homme Intense and Mugler Cologne.

    Can't go wrong with the great advice already give, so I have nothing else to add but to try and sniff these out via samples or in person.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    If you only need 1. Go for Fahrenheit By Christian Dior. Timeless classic.

    Fahrenheit and Mugler Cologne if picking two from your list. If only picking one, Fahrenheit is the more distinctive choice, IMO.

    I OWN the following:
    La Nuit
    MI by Creed
    Versace Pour Homme
    Versace Man Eau Fraiche
    Gucci Pour Homme II
    You've already got some really good ones - love MI and Gucci PH II and the Versace scents aren't bad either.

    I think you could definitely add MiP and Fahrenheit in there. But be aware the MiP comes in both EdT and EdP form. The latter is way better in my opinion and last much longer. It's a more refined version of DHI, although that one has many fans as well.

    Don't recommend Mugler Cologne at all. It's nice and fresh but it doesn't last and is very linear (it doesn't develop at all).

    DHI, The One and Fahrenheit.. IMO, those are two tried and tested fragrances that you wont go wrong with. I agree that MiP is more "refined" than DHI, but personally I prefer the dry down of DHI than MiP....As always though, order\get samples of the fragrances 1st so that you can make more of an informed decision.

    Others Id suggest:
    Mont Blanc Individuale
    Eau des Baux
    Versace Eros (not much talk here about it, but it gets love elsewhere)
    Dior Homme Sport (2008 or 2012)
    24 Gold ScentStory
    Bleu de Chanel
    Chanel Allure Line

    ok thanks for all of the replies, My list as it stands in order:

    DHI is definitely garnering my attention as of right now. As well as The One

    I need something that I can be comfortable in a college party setting but also something refined/unique and not as loud and in your face as something like1 million or other scents in that arena. But I still want the scent to pack a little punch.

    Default Re: help me add 1 or 2 fragrances to my collection

    +1 for DHI and +1 for MiP(or Fahrenheit) but not both. You might want to look at Bvlgari Black as well as an alternative to the last two.

    Default Re: help me add 1 or 2 fragrances to my collection

    ok, DHI is going to be my first fragrance purchase of 2014. What about for my second?(consider my current selection) something that'll suit well for a junior/senior in college with both the ladies and casual/raging get-togethers or parties. Much appreciated to all.

    maybe a pure malt/pure havane/ chanel egoiste/platinum/ allure blanche/sport would be a good addition?

    All of these are great, but my favorite/recommendation would be Pure Malt. It's probably moved into my top 3.
