    My 2 choices (actually 6):
    Spec occasion - French Lover by Frederic Malle or Amouage Jubilation XXV or Montale Lime Aoud (wear it at least 2 hrs b4 ur spec occasion)
    versatile all yr - NY EDT by Parfum De Nicolai or Knize 10 or Guerlain Vetiver...

    The standard GIT/Aventus answers people are posting are actually quite justified IMHO. However, given how popular Aventus has become, I'm going to be a bit different and suggest:

    Versatile: Aventus
    Special Occ: Amouage Epic Man
