    Default Which fragrance best suits YOU?

    It can be any fragrance.
    Completely independent of compliments, sillage, projection, external opinions.

    For me: Polo Modern Reserve



    I live in a forest, its evergreen, just like PMR.
    I enjoy the scent of leather and own a leather jacket.
    Its composition may not be the most complex but neither am I.

    Its one of those scents that, for me, just fits.

    Have you found yours? What is it?

    I don't think I've found "the one" but I do feel some fragrances bring out certain sides of me or show aspects of my personality.

    A few of these include:

    Creed Virgin Island Water: I'm a hedonist. It's fun and carefree. I live in the tropics and love the beach
    The One by D&G: I'm promiscuous (I'd like to think I've put that behind me... But no). The sweet candied citrus warmth and tobacco make me feel like a 'seducer'
    Dior Homme Sport (2012): Active but classy, fresh and warm at the same time
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver: Clean, bright and sophisticated. It brings out my professional/business side

    This one. If I am feeling stressed or angry it just brings me back to a calmer, happier place. Never fails.

    Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?

    A bit of a toss-up between Creed Aventus and Creed Spice & Wood.

    But I have about 50 others that I could feel that way about on any given day. Dior Vetiver, Brueckner Aoud 1, Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche, by Kilian Straight to Heaven, Dior Homme Sport, etc...

    Guerlain Vetiver, Givenchy Gentleman or Rive Gauche pour Homme.

    Can't settle with one.

    Either Dior Homme (EDT) or Jubilation XXV at this point. Back in the day (as in, around 1995), it was Fahrenheit, but that one's not quite the same anymore.

    Every one that I put on. I'm constantly changing on some level or other so I'd say that fragrance fits me.

    I agree with Danieq - each fragrance brings out a different facet of my personality. This morning Eau Duelle's spicy vanilla made me feel like an exotic hippie chick. That was a good feeling.

    Creed Green Irish Tweed is probably my soundtrack scent for my life, even though I wear it maybe once a month. It's my precious occasion scent.
    Not because of cost or amount left, it's just special to me.

    My wife would probably choose Aventus as the one that is most me. She also said that Acqua di Gio Essenza "just smells like You".

    I feel very comfy in Tom Ford Italian Cypress and Noir de Noir, and Creed Millesime Imperial. Silver Mountain Water, too.

    So those are my picks. I guess that would make them my top 7 scents as well, huh?

    My personal No1 and preference is Gucci Envy For Men

    Yesterday a friend told me that TM B*Men really suits me, but then again, how ppl percieve a person etc. influences also on their opinion about the scent and vice versa.

    I haven't found "the one" and hope I never do. The discovery of something "great" is still a thrill. The one I go back to over and over is Chypre Palatin-MDCI. This is a stunner for me and I never get tired of it. It moves easily from office to dinner to whatever.

    Of course, if you factor out the office, it would be my special Lombrosso-Odriu
    My mom's great. I appreciate her sense of humor, patience and fondness for daytime drinking. :0)

    I would have to say Dior Homme Intense.When every other fragrance fails, DHI is always there. Oh yeah, the compliments are a plus also.

    Would say Aventus... feel this one was made for me. Forget the pineapple, the birch note is what makes this one great. The only problem is I could never wear this every day...no way. Overwelms the nose resulting in fatique big time.

    Wow. You are a macho man for sure!

    Mine is Van Cleef and Arpels PH, which is in that same, powerhouse masculine league.

    Armani Mania. I know a lot of people think this an underwhelming fragrance from Armani but I find it to be extremely balanced, refined, and it's definitely my favorite from Armani and in my top 3. It's versatile, too, not a typical fresh scent but still clean. Also, I'm not into huge silage scents, but this one gets noticed and receives compliments with the type of projection I prefer.

    Kilian Back to Black for me right now. I love the sweet honey and at the same time the dirty tobacco. Kind of like a Jeckel and Hide for me, if I get bored with the one side I can just focus on the other. The best of both worlds.
