Even if you wore it every day do you have a fragrance which would never bore you?
Most of the fragrances in my wardrobe, also within the "tested", not just "owning" category, but Armani Eau pour Homme, Versace L'Homme, Knize Ten, Rive Gauche, Ungaro III ranking quite highly among the "wearable even daily with no signs of boredom"-scents.
C2G 2 Man, Frank No. 2 Los Angeles, Slumberhouse Rume, Chanel Sycamore and many more in my wardrobe.
Chanel No 22
Ysl Le Homme
and Burberry by Buerberry.

There's no fragrance I would want to wear every day (not even my most favourite, most beatiful fragrances). I can enjoy the same scent for two days in a row, on the third day I regret the choice. Lutens' Datura Noir was ruined for me by a challenge here on Basenotes of wearing the same scent for a week.
Old Spice. It is a sort of permanent basenote for me because I have been using the deodorant and aftershave since I started to need those things. And my dad used to use it sometimes, though my grandfather was the real Old Spice devotee of the family.
Hammam Bouquet and Habit Rouge. The legends.
Almost every one I have in my wardrobe...
Concentre d'Orange Verte. Of all the scents I've owned and tried, this one I love the most, never get tired of, and always like to have around. I guess that is true fragrance love. <3
I send thee this sweet perfume a fragrance to the fragrant, as one would offer wine to the god of wine.
Green Irish Tweed. I know it's not got much depth or complexity, but it's a real comfort scent for me.
It just suits my mood a lot of the time. I have to be in the mood for heavier, heady scents like Chergui, Tuscan Leather etc.
I always get a little bored when I wear a fragrance every day so I alternate 2 or 3.
The best in my opinion are Chanel Perfumes, they are very elegant and it is hard to get bored of.
Balmain de Balmain
O de Lancome
and probably a whole lot I haven't thought of yet.

Davidoff Coolwater and Christian Dior Dior Homme.
+ 1 for Dior Homme
I wish I had one. I love most of my perfumes but I get bored of even my most beloved if I wear too frequently. That's the beauty of owning a diverse (ok, relatively) collection. Get to alternate!
