    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.

    I consider anything from my collection I wear safe, but I'll choose Siecle.

    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.

    Armani Eau Pour Homme. Warm or Cold weather, Formal or Jeans&T, it just works.

    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.

    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 (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (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
    Carbone de Balmain
    L'Essence de Cerruti
    Zino Davidoff
    Essenza de Zegna
    Mugler Cologne
