    Default Your safest, go-to, anytime, anywhere scent?

    This is basically the opposite of the "fragrance you won't wear out of the house" thread. It got me to thinking about which scent I use when I'm concerned about not offending someone. For me it's GIT, I feel like it's appropriate in all situations.

    Two sprays of Mugler Cologne. Safe as houses, that stuff - it's the frag to wear when I can't decide which frag to wear.

    It doesn't hurt that it smells wonderful, too.

    34 Boulevard Saint Germain. Undeniably the most versatile perfume. No question about complexity. Floral, aromatic, spice-rich and resinous. It's not a projection banshee nor is it too soft. Just perfect.

    for swap/sale:

    I have quite a few that fall into that category, but probably the safest/most versatile in my collection are Tom Ford Grey Vetiver, Creed Himalaya, and Hugo Element, and Bond No. 9 Chez Bond.

    Probably vintage Monsieur de Givenchy is the safest in my wardrobe as it is easy to wear year-round and I can't really see anyone finding it offensive.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady original formula (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage/V.I.P. for Men (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Aventus, and no, I don't mean that in a fanboy sense. I really like Aventus, but I don't understand the hype at all. Aventus is ultra-safe. I don't smell anything in it that's the least bit challenging.

    Tom Ford For Men comes in 2nd place. I actually purchased this one because it is so versatile and, dare I say, safe. I enjoy it and wish it had more edge, but then again, its versatility is through the roof.

    I have quite a few that easily fall into this catagory. Off the top of my head I'd say:

    Acqua di Parma Colonia Intensa, Mugler Cologne, Blue de Chanel, Z Zegna, Zegna Colonia, Rive Gauche Pour Homme, L'Essence de Cerruti, Gucci Pour Homme II (except for its shit longevity!), M7 Fresh, Givenchy pour Homme Blue Label & Curve for Men.
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque, Armani Prive' Nuances,
    Armani Prive' Bois d'Encens, Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud, Essenza de Zegna, Amouage Beloved Man, Fahrenheit Le Parfum, Dior La Collection Couturier Vetiver, and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam.
