    Default Recommendation from the house of Amouage, Creed or Guerlain

    Hi Basenoters,

    I'll give a sketch of my scene. I work as the manager and main salesman in a luxury watches retail store. So there are conversation with customers, and mainly I'am all day inside the store. I like conservatism and thus looking for a fragrance for daily and all season use. I'am a fuzzy guy, i strive for perfection. I would like to receive a recommendation from the house of Amouage, Creed or Guerlain. I prefer a good longevity and projection. It's nice when a fragrance has a natural feel to it. I don't mind florals at all.

    I hope I didn't make it to complicated. Thanks in advance friends.

    Sounds like you might be working in a warm country, and indoors so I will say Eau de Guerlain, which may be a little underpowered but better than most in it's category and you won't annoy anybody in close proximity.

    I fully second Creed GIT as a suitable choice.

    Creeds IMO vary too much from batch to batch.

    If you want to send the right signals to your customers, in terms of character and confidence, go for broke - Amouage Opus VI.

    Well then, I still recommend Eau de Guerlain plus maybe Vetiver or Heritage in small doses. I do't know Amouage scents but they sound a bit heavy for working indoors. I'm not a big fan of Creed but I think GIT is pretty hard to really dislike. Bois du Portugal maybe but it's even richer than Heritage (though similar).

    I vote for Windsor and MI, both very versatile and well liked by the mass.

    I'd be wary with Amouage though. Some of them are very strong so they may offend others.

    You probably want something smooth and elegant, but no particularly strage or avantgarde, something pleasing to most people. Most Amouages will do, in small doses. I'd also point out Jub XXV (clean incense). Gold man, though, which is my favorite, might simply be too big and complex for the circumstance.

    I have not tried all but what would really work:
    Jubilation XXV
    GIT

    So far i see no recommendation for Amouage reflection (while it seems to be quite popular), no vote for Creed Original Santal or Original Vetiver (the newer releases on classic notes?) or Guerlains vetiver (maybe too bland) or l'instant (maybe too heavy?)? I don't think the scent should be weak either. A quality fragrance shouldn't be directly necessarily offending, quality will shine and may thus be noticed.

    I made my recommendations on the basis that you work in an upscale environment, and thus would probably like an upscale fragrance. The Creeds you mention are fairly casual fragrances. Reflection is very love/hate around here, I think it's one of Amouage's worst. Almost any Guerlain would work.

    Why limit yourself to these 3 houses?

    Of the three houses you mentioned, I am most familiar with Guerlain. Almost anything from that house would work for your circumstance. You really can't get any more "classic" and "conservative" than Habit Rouge. L'instant de Guerlain Pour Homme is a more modernized scent from them, but I would still say conservative and with classical sensibilities(the EDT not EDP, which is more gourmand).

    However, when you wrote this:

    I thought Heritage. It's a great scent, pure class, and it has a floral presence in parts, though not at all a purely floral scent.

    I was going to recommend one of my absolute favorites, Amouage Dia Man, but it is not a great projector. In a similar vein is Arsene Lupin by Guerlain that is.
    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)
    Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6)
    Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)
    9) Javanese Patchouli (Zegna) - tie
    9) Monsieur de Givenchy vintage (Givenchy) - tie
    9) Coeur de Vetiver Sacré (L'Artisan) - tie
    9) X for Men (Clive Christian) - tie
    9) Patou pour Homme Privé (Jean Patou) - tie
    9) Oud Shamash (The Different Company) - tie

    Doesn't matter which one you choose from those houses. Find one you like and go with it.
