    Default Suggestions for something new/celebratory

    I just found out yesterday I got a new job (whoo hoo!) and would like to commemorate/celebrate with a new scent. I'm going shopping tonight; pretty much everything under the sun is available at the mall where I'm going (Chanel boutique with the Exclusifs, Neiman Marcus with Tom Ford Private Blends, etc.)

    I'm thinking:
    Mechant Loup
    Chanel Coromandel
    Tom Ford Black Violet
    Maybe a Creed (I don't have any)? Original Vetiver?

    I've sampled all the above and liked them, but I'm always open to new suggestions. Many thanks in advance.

    Do you already have Bois de Portugal? It is perfect for a first day at the job. The first impression is what counts.

    Original Vetiver is a good one on your list. Sample first.

    I prefer the Tom Ford Black Violet.

    Original Vetiver is safe and a good staple.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    I would say Aventus, and wear 10 sprays so everyone in your neighborhood can smell you :P

    If you have a Dior boutique there or a store that carries the La Collection Prive line check those out, some great fragrances to be discovered.

    Congratulations!

    In your list, by far, Coromandel. In general, I think the Chanel exclusif make a great celebratory perfume. In addition to Coromandel, there's Sycomore.

    Alternatively, you could head to Colonial Drugs in Harvard square and get Knize Ten, which is just as good, and cheaper.

    I agree. I'd go for the Chanel.
