    Default If you had to give one blind buy reccommendation what would it be?

    Lets say you had to give one blind buy recommendation knowing nothing about who it was for what would it be and why? Keep it under about $100

    I agree with Essenza - good for anybody.

    If I knew they were into fragrance in any way, I'd go with Terre d'Hermes, or maybe Bleu de Chanel.

    Dior - Fahrenheit.

    But AdG and GPH2 are solid picks.

    If someone asked me for a reasonably priced fougere powerhouse, admittedly dark and smoky, but creating a much more distinguished, luxurious impression than its very affordable price and all this with monster longevity, it would be:

    Francesco Smalto pour Homme


    It hardly gets more "non-reformulated 80s" than this.

    Was also going to say TdH but the (experienced) lot here have been critical of it in the past so don't know if it will suite everyone. It still is my most complimented scent.

    Chergui by Serge Lutens. The discount houses have been deep discounting this one for as low as $60.00. You can't beat that for such a well made concoction.

    I'd try and cover all the bases with something unisex, timeless, and generally well-liked - Acqua di Parma Colonia.

    Another + for GPH II and AdG

  28. #28

    Default Re: If you had to give one blind buy reccommendation what would it be?

    +1 for AdG, BdC, GpH2, TdH. Also would add Allure Homme Sport (or Versace pour Homme, very similar and about 1/2 price), YSL L'Homme, and Dior Homme.

    But if we're going strictly by OP and only allowed one not knowing anything else, then I'd say BdC. It's pretty much the new AdG...
