    Default Your 2013 Fragrance Starting Lineup?

    These threads have came and gone in the past... so here's a fresh one.
    YouTube reviewers do these Starting Lineup videos from time to time - it is basically a strict choice of fragrance for each occassion:

    1. A Signature Scent
    2. A Work Scent
    3. A Going Out Scent
    4. Close Encounter/Intimate Scent
    5. Most Daring Scent
    6. Sophisticated/Black Tie Scent

    Feel free to post a video or write what yours are, starting this year.
    I tried to be strict but it's hard Also I think this is mainly a winter one, I wanna do one in summer too

    Thanks Dailey! I like to think my taste is very broad, but I'm also very very particular.
    Let us know yours

    Every fragrance in my bottle is up for rotation. It just depends on what I feel that particular morning.

    As someone in college, some of these don't apply to me, but:

    1. A Signature Scent- Aventus by Creed
    2. A Work Scent- Green Irish Tweed by Creed
    3. A Going Out Scent- Depends highly on what I am going out for (clubbing/date/study session/party?)
    4. Close Encounter/Intimate Scent- Memoir Man by Amouage
    5. Most Daring Scent- Sova by Slumberhouse
    6. Sophisticated/Black Tie Scent- Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford

    Honestly, i think these line-up things are silly , at least to me. Because I have several scents that fit into each category.

    But I'll just say that I've been wearing a lot of Dior Homme lately.

    I think that's the same as most people here - but that's the idea of the starting lineup - forcing to choose 1. It's only a bit of fun.

    To be honest most of the comparison, top 5, vs., and all other lists are silly, we all have several scents that fit into each category That's the point.

    Selfridges. Easier to get hold of here in the UK than Montale's if you have one in your town.

    P.S

    Cheaper too!

    I've seen the line in Selfridges quite a bit but never gone over for a sniff!

    On any given day, this list could look different, but right now, this is how I would put it together. From the fragrances I own:

    1. A Signature Scent (Gucci Pour Homme 2)
    2. A Work Scent (Burberry for Men)
    3. A Going Out Scent ("Joopilation" = Joop ph + Jubilation OR "Royal Golden Water" + Suratti Golden Sand oil + Creed Royal Water oil)
    4. Close Encounter/Intimate Scent (Divine L'homme Sage)
    5. Most Daring Scent (Probably Joop ph)
    6. Sophisticated/Black Tie Scent (Amouage Reflection OR Interlude)
