    Default Kings of Versatility

    I saw this idea in an old thread and was really intrigued by it, but instead of dredging it back up I thought I'd start a new one.

    Post 3-5 of the most versatile scents (in your opinion) for your age group.

    Mine happens to be those of us under 25

    My five picks are:
    Green Irish Tweed- Creed
    Aventus- Creed (The only fragrance where I can't think of a situation where it would be inappropriate)
    Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme- Chanel
    Armani Code- Giorgio Armani
    Pure Havane- Thierry Mugler

    So what are the most versatile fragrances in your opinions?
    Current Top 10:
    1. Leather Oud- Dior
    2. Black Aoud- Montale
    3. M7 Oud Absolu- YSL (I really REALLY like oud)
    4. Green Irish Tweed- Creed
    5. Cuir de Russie- Chanel
    6. Straight to Heaven- By Kilian
    7. Aventus- Creed
    8. Pure Havane- Theirry Mugler
    9. Shalimar EdP- Guerlain
    10.Body Kouros- YSL

    I think any scent can be worn at any time, as long as you apply it accordingly.

    Having said that, here are my favorite versatile fragrances that I think most people would be comfortable wearing in many different situations (let's say 25-35).

    All-around/fresh:
    Gucci pour Homme II
    YSL L'Homme
    Creed GIT
    TF Neroli Portofino
    Hermes Terre d'Hermes

    Barbershop:
    YSL Rive Gauche pour Homme

    Gourmand:
    Rochas Man

    Spicy:
    Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germain

    Floral:
    MFK Lumiere Noire pour Homme
    Le Labo Rose 31
    Le Labo Iris 39

    Woody/vetiver:
    Chanel Sycomore
    Dior Vetiver
    TF Oud Wood
    Divine L'Homme Infini

    34 Blvd Saint Germain

    Floral, spicy, aromatic, woody and resinous. The epitome of versatility.

    34 boulevard saint germain is a fragrance celebrating Diptyque’s 50th anniversary. 34 encapsulates the scent of its first boutique located on 34 boulevard saint germain with rare and precious fragrances. The result is a fragrance that has an innovative and complex signature.
    *
    Developed around a chypre backbone, the base notes of wood and balms add comfort and create addiction. It is a rich and voluptuous fragrance which is suitable for men and women.

    Age group: slightly below 30, being 29 now.

    Almost irrespective of age, some of the most versatile male fragrances I know, easily wearable an almost any occasions, almost any weather condition, almost any outfit are (in my opinion):

    Mugler Cologne
    YSL Rive Gauche
    Kenzo pour Homme
    Bleu de Chanel
    L'Eau d'Issey pour Homme

    Most or all of them so pleasant, inoffensive and tastefully understated, they could be easily worn with anything and at any age, virtually by anyone.

    Bash TF Grey Vet all you want, its clean and sharp, and a good compliment getter. I agree with these choices completely.
