    Default If you had to choose 3 colognes to wear for the rest of your life....

    You are going to an island where you will spend the rest of your life and you are allowed to take 3 bottles of fragrances with you.

    .....which ones would they be?

    my picks;

    Dior Homme Intense
    Aventus
    Tobacco Vanille

    It has a pleasant sort of woody/citrus smell to my nose. It's VERY linear (obviously, since it's made up of one ingredient, diluted, rather than being a complex composition), but it really lasts.

    I have it too but can't seem to smell anything bar a mild fruity/aqua style aroma out of it. If I layer it under a perfume with weak sillage however, it makes it project through the roof.
