"Waste time wondering which "cologne" pulls better, and your genes will spread only by accident. A perfume should be right for the man, not for the job"
Chanel Eau de Cologne. Those people are sardine-canned in there and it gets mighty hot in that tux. Not the setting for, say, a patchouli bomb, in my view.
Debating between Oscar Celebration or Oscar Red Satin by Oscar de la Renta
Current Spring Favorites:
1. Creed - Spice & Wood
2. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
3. Dior - Vetiver
4. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men
5. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Haitian Vetiver
7. Dior - Homme Sport 2012
8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
9. Creed - Aventus
10. Parfumerie Generale - Grand Siecle Intense 7.1
Eau de ABC is f***ing garbage I can't believe they can't put together a decent f***ing stream of the Oscars this is complete and utter bulls**t how embarrassing.
Aventus...that way I'll at least smell like a winner
My go to special occasion fragrance is Jubilation XXV, but for the Oscars, I'd probably wear something a little like Vetiver Extraordinaire.
for this circus of self infatuation ..........Egoiste - What else?

Is the juice worth the squeeze?
As a few others mentioned, I would go with Creed Windsor as well.
I wore Jubilation XXV. Went well with the tux.
