    Dinner and drinks tonight. About 50 degrees out and admittedly I have a small collection, what would you go with? I'm 25 btw

    D&G the one
    D&G light blue
    D&G pour homme
    cool water
    joop pour homme
    bvlgari man extreme
    bvlgari blv notte
    bvgari aqua
    fragonard grand luxe and F!
    gucci guilty
    armani code ultimate
    yves saint laurent homme libre

    I would probably stay away from cool water and joop

    Hi h20123 - you'll probably have more replies in Male Fragrance so we'll move the thread over there.

    I would go with Armani Code Ultimate or The One. You don't want to smell like her ex boyfriend, brother ect with the other scents you have available. Good luck!

    Depends on her personality, IMO, assuming you don't know her well enough to predict her taste....

    Loud, modern, gaudy: L'Homme Libre - it matches the tattoo on her neck and her nail art

    Older lady who appreciates classic things: Cool Water, lightly applied

    Party girl: Joop - party fragrance

    International intellectual type: Fragonard, in case she asks.

    Back to your place: Armani Code Ultimate or D&G the one For Men - smells good up close

    Unknown: Gucci Guilty - no risks, women like it

    Don't give a damn - Whatever strikes your mood!

    GOOD LUCK!!!

    ^ Well put. I would go with The One because it's pretty subtle and smells nice. You never know if she hates fragrances or not. I know a few women who cannot stand scents whatsoever...lotions, deodorants, perfume.

    Looks like The One wins out, not too strong and yet to meet anyone who doesn't like it

    My advice: ask yourself "What kind of impression do I want to make? Which scent best fits that impression?" Wear that.

    Also, Red's advice is, of course, spot on!

    Perfume is less important, Being yourself is the most difficult on a date

    In another life, I would love to date a woman who wanted me to wear Kouros. We would probably get arrested for something that would end up in "News of the Weird", but still.

    I agree - buy it now. It's not going to get any stronger or better. I'm seriously debating another bottle.

    Date went well guys. It was a first date, friend of a friend so someone I knew a little. Seems like a good match, have a lot in common. Been texting since then etc. Probably one of the girls that will take a little while to start having more fun with . She mentioned she never dances in public, but I think I'll get her to next time. Couldn't be anymore embarrassing than my dancing lol. Ended up wearing D&G the One Didn't comment on the fragrance though interestingly I really liked her fragrance, I might have to ask her what it was. It was definitely a stronger scent so next date I'll probably put on something bolder as well

    It sounds like an enjoyable time. Most young women seem to prefer gourmands and vanilla.

    Also my belated and almost off-topic reply, especially to Primrose: aquatics and also non-aquatic fresh fragrances seem to also be popular, appropriate and generally liked as dating/socializing/going out etc. fragrances.

    Another vote for The One...but since the performance is so bad, she'll only smell it if she's up close...which is a good thing in my opinion!

    Haha thanks guys, btw I've been thinking of picking up a gourmand and an aquatic as well. Definitely works for my age group. First date scents can always be tricky because you might not know if you just happen to pick a scent she can't stand so I would err on the side of subtle and low projection

    I'd go with The One but wouldn't discard Joop Homme because it's one of my most complimented fragrances.

    Edit: oops, the date already happened. Maybe try Joop next time?
