    Default Year round night scent? or seasonal?

    So I have my daily summer scent right now. I got a 3.4oz of dior's home sport, and I lovee it!
    What I'm wondering is if I should look for a night scent, for date purposes. I feel like most date scents are catered twords the winter, as they are darker or sweeter. Are there any date scents that would work in any season, hot or cold? Should I think about a date scent for the summer, or will fresh work?

    I've been thinking about Dior's homme intense, or Mugler A-men Pure Malt. But from the way the sound, it might get a little cloying in 85+ heat.

    Thoughts?

    (Also, I am trying to keep my scents to a minimum. I don't want a ton of cologne)

    If you think DHI would be cloying, then go for Dior Homme instead. My opinion is that any cologne can be worn in any season.

    DHI would be a good one. Just don't overspray.

    I don't see any problem either with dior homme sport at night if you like it. If you want something fresh but a touch darker you can check a vetiver like Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. If you are willing to spend a little more with a niche product, you could check Commes des Garcons 2 man, a fresh incense, which is quite avantgarde and striking.

    Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme could work, projects well and it basically dries down into a tonka bean smell that's almost gourmandish. Plus the longevity is insane, I put it on this morning and I can still clearly smell it on my wrists.

    Not to mention the "sport" aspect of it with the citrusy opening makes it a viable option for day to day use too. Very very versatile IMO
    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

    La nuit d'lhomme is a great all-year night scent imo. and a huge compliment getter.

    I agree with Bleu de Chanel or La Nuit. Both are fairly good date scents even in warmer weather. I'm of the opinion that some colognes just don't work well in year round weather/temps. For example, I own Pure Malt but wont wear it in the summertime (I live in fairly humid/hot area in the Southern US). For me, it's easier to get away with wearing a lighter, fresher scent in the wintertime than it is to wear a heavier scent (like Pure Malt) in the heat/summer.

    DHI and la nuit are my go-to for date nights.

    In my opinion, DHI can be worn as evening/nighttime fragrance during the whole year.
