    Default Suggestions for a new fragrance

    I am looking for a new fragrance with no particular seasonal criteria. I am looking for something that has average to long projection and sillage that smells good. I currently have YSL L'homme, Le Nuit, Dior Homme and Intense, Aqua Di Gio, John Varvatos, Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme and Edition blanche. Any suggestions are welcome. Also, I am 24 year old going into the business world.

    I have or have had all but one of the fragrances you listed. I'd suggest/recommend trying Cartier Declaration, Spicebomb, Armani Code, Pure Malt, and Pure Havane.

    Try something vetiver'ish for a change?

    Guerlains Vetiver is great, fresh but still polite and versatile with a great longevity and a decent projection.
    You could also try Diors Eau Sauvage Perfume, the vetiver flanker. It's (in my opinion) damn good, lasts for a great while and projects above average.

    If not those, I'd recommend a straight up eau de cologne. Check out Aqua Di Parma Colonia. Yummi goodness. Pair it with the shower gel and it'll last a surprisingly long time, and you'll end up smelling fresh and clean.

    You have a mix of fresh and warmer sweeter.

    For another fresh, I also recommend a vetiver, as hreple. Another one would be Tom Ford Grey vetiver.

    Or you could add something more avantgarde to your collection, for instance, Bulgari Black (rubber), or Lush Breath of God (smokey vetiver).

    +1 for Jaipur Homme, but only the EDP. YOu could also try Winter Star by Michael Storer, but it may not be the number one pick for a "business world" scent. Way too sexy.

    I love all the scents you've purchased so far and am in the same age group (I'm 22), so this might helpful. Try and get a sample of Diptyque Philosykos. It's basically an invigorating, aromatic fig scent with hints of cedar in the background. You can wear it anytime really during the spring and summer.
    Top 3:

    1. Dior Homme
    2. Diptyque Philosykos
    3. Burberry London
    4. Hermessence Ambre Narguilé
    5. Creed Green Irish Tweed

    I could see something like Chanel Platinum Egoiste, or even a light application of Versace's The Dreamer working well in a business environment.

    3. Tobacco Vanille
    4. L'Air Du Desert Marocain
    5. Green Irish Tweed
    6. Fahrenheit
    7. Musc Ravageur
    8. Tonka Imperial
    9. Gucci Pour Homme II

    thanks for all the input guys. It is hard to sample as I only have a Bon-Ton near me which only has a slim selection of designer fragrances, but I have used perfumedcourt before so I'll look into some of the ones you suggested.

    Based on his current collection I'd agree. He'd probably dig it.

    Have a sample of Spicebomb, which I really enjoy. I'm not sure it works as a work scent though because it seems like it could be overpowering but I'm new so what do I know lol. I think my first test is going to be for platinum egoiste since it is the easiest for me to find a tester for.

    Sampled both Platinum Egoiste and Guerlains Vetiver and I wasn't a fan of either. Egoiste wasnt' too bad but didn't impress me and I absolutely hated Guerlains Vetiver.

    I have a sample of Platinum Egoiste and as much as I want to like it I can't imagine owning an entire bottle. I think a specific note in there just gives me a headache after a while.

    And if you like Spicebomb try Cartier Declaration.
