    Default What to wear for nightclubs?

    Hello all!

    I am planning to party this Friday and Saturday. Which colognes do you think fits the occasion? I am looking for something with decent projection and silleage.

    I think there will be at least a million guys wearing Paco Rabanne's 1Million as well as AdG I'd like to have something nice and different.
    I tried Dior Homme Intense, but I found it a tad girly. Smells wonderful, but not my type of perfume.

    I am on a budget. I am looking for something around 50 euros at tops. (I'll be shopping at the duty free)

    ps.. I own YSL-L'Homme and Dior Homme Sport.

    Thanks in advance!

    I also forgot to mention that I have been seriously wanting to buy L'Occitane's Vetyver and Terre d'Hermes this year. I'd appreciate if you evaluate them according to the occasion.

    On a trip I sampled the L'Occitane's Vetyver and while I like it a lot - I do not see it as a good "clubbing" scent - more of a relaxing evening scent

    Its not the longest lasting and not a strong projector - and this tried in a very warm climate

    Now inexpensive - Samba Skin (here in the US) is quite a value - and it projects and lasts a good while - a good Tobacco and Vanilla scent

    Or even Diesel Plus Plus - nice vanilla and amber scent that projects and lasts - and again a great value

    And remember - the ladies love Vanilla. And why do you go "clubbing"? - for the Ladies!

    L'Occitane's Vetyver is discontinued. Give Givenchy Play Intense a try, to me, it's a good night out fragrance.

    I don't consider Terre d'Hermes to be a night out/clubbing scent and as rynege pointed out, L'Occitane's Vetyver is no longer on the shelves.

    YSL La Nuit is definitely worth a try.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Nightclubs are often hot and sweaty. I am concerned that sweet and vanilla might backfire. That's why I thought Vetivers might be an option. Just a thought.

    I have seen Eau des Baux at discount price in the airport. So it might be an option, too?

    I love wearing L'Homme. I think La Nuit would fit me just as well. I haven't tried The One by D&G. I'll try that, too.

    Please feel free to give me some ideas.

    ps.. I am going to Austria and Slovakia. I think it'll be cold outside.

    Allure homme sport. A true winner fo night and with the ladies.
    ,Black orchid - projection monster, pretty complex, perfect for clubbing
    Black xs , CK euphoria. Not that strong, but sexy sweet/fruity scents.

    Kill them with Chanel Platinum Egoiste

    Upper end of your range - but buy a smaller bottle - might work well and it last!

    Hi,

    I live in Slovakia and I can tell you, you can wear pretty much anything around here in clubs, you don't have to worry about running into a bunch of guys wearing the same fragrance as you. 1 million was never a hype here, I think you'd do okay with it. In fact, I don't think any fragrance was overhyped here in the last decade, men wear mostly Axe and Adidas deodorants, lol, you can occasionally get a whiff of Versace Pour Homme or Boss No. 6 in a club, it's almost funny. And yes, there's cold outside but not as much, around 11C during day and 3C in night.
