    Lightbulb Situational Fragrances

    This might have been done before, but I believe this will be a fun tag. So you know a lot of people have separate fragrances for different situations (e.g. a heavy cologne might not be the best match for a pool party). Below you will find 10 categories, and I want you put the fragrance you think suits every situation best. Some of the categories are realistic, while others... It can be fragrances you own or you would like to own - as long as it's one you love. Think of it as a Male Fragrance Dream Team Tag.

    Oh, and might I mention that I am quite inexperienced in the world of fragrances, so my answers would be boring. Would probably end up writing D&G "The One" and Dior Homme over and over again.

    1. The First Date
    2. Job Interview
    3. The Gym
    4. Night Club
    5. The Beach
    6. The Mountain Cabin
    7. Sexytime
    8. Engagement Party/Ball
    9. Top Secret Mission (James Bond Style)
    10. College/University

    And you are of course free to include a reasoning behind your choices if you want. Have fun!

    I'm seeing a lot of reoccuring fragrances here! Maybe I should check these out myself. Also like the fact that some chose no fragrance at all for some of the situations. Keep 'em coming!

    1. The First Date: Something very safe: Shalimar Parfum Initial, Narciso Rodriguez for Her
    2. Job Interview: Coeur de Vetiver Sacre, Jo Malone 154, Un Jardin en Mediterranee
    3. The Gym: None

    6. The Mountain Cabin: Quelques Fleurs l`Original, Timbuktu
    7. Sexytime: I wish I could truthfully say something like MKK, BAV or Rien, but unfortunately, only perfumistas(os) seem to appreciate “dirty”, animalic scents, so it ends up being nothing or Angel
    8. Engagement Party/Ball: Annick Goutal Passion, Chanel 18
    9. Top Secret Mission (James Bond Style): None. Predators should not have a scent.
    10. College/University: Anything heavy on the patchouli and/or incense to cover the smoke: Avignon, Coromandel, Prada Amber Pour Homme Intense (this last one is probably the most realistic because it is easy to find and affordable)

    There are so many fragrances I need to check out now. Plenty of you mention Knize Ten, Sel Marine, Derby and Bleu de Chanel. Obviously fragrances that satisfy a lot of people. Oh, and women are of course welcom to answer here as well. Just had to put it in either women or men's fragrances.

    Well, some people still do. And anyway, the point was to see what fragrance people associate with being sporty. Scents can have a massive effect on us, you know.

    Straight to Heaven has a huge dose of cedar and a boozy note. I smell like a drunk hamster when I wear it. Maybe this is why it seems to be a popular choice for the night club?
