    Default Surfer guy - recommend me a Winter fragrance

    I am more of a surfer type of guy (early 20s), and I dress casually most of the time, even in winter (hollister hoodie, boardshorts, you get it...)

    The thing is, what would be a good casual winter fragrance for me? I find most of the winter fragrances to be too formal to wear on a daily basis. For example, I can't see myself wearing Tobacco Vanille or La Nuit during the day or during a casual night (I wear those to clubs or a formal occasion).

    - Terre D'hermes : Great for winter in my opinion, especially for someone who is careful like you

    - The new Valentino Uomo : Test it first

    - Pure Malt

    - Aventus

    Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme would be fitting.

    What you would really like for its warm heart and masculine yet casual soul is Mustang. Yacht Man Metal is great also; it can fit into both warm and cooler weather, and smells very similar to Chanel Allure Homme Sport.

    Rod, I surf as well and my wardrobe is everything from 3 piece suits during the week to boardies and a tank top in the summer months (weekends of course). if you want something nice for winter months with that "surfer style" I would reccomend John Varvatos Vintage or Roadster by Cartier. Both nice scents that I think are unique and give a "relaxed" vibe.

    Thanks for all the recommendations guys!
    Some of the fragrances you suggested I already know, and some I don't.
    Yeah, I think that Aventus and Allure Extreme would really hit the nail!

    Some of the already suggested ones are a bit too formal to my taste, like:
    Jubilation, Pure Malt, London, The One, Avant Garde(I need to test this more, but I found it similar to La Nuit)

    Nice! I'll have to look into those!

    I'll have to revisit Individuel, as I don't remember it very well. I'll try to sample some of the mentioned ones that I don't know too.
