Thread: Something new
My cousin is getting married this Sunday in Southern California. It's outside at a golf course at 1 PM. I was planning on wearing GIT but would rather pick up something new I think. I'm 34 years old and plan on wearing a tan cotton suit supply suit. What would you recommend for under $120..
I would wear GIT in this situation.

GIT really would be such a perfect choice, but if you're looking for something different...
Gucci Pour Homme II
Tom Ford For Men - or Grey Vetiver
Current Favorites (not in any particular order)
Hanae Mori HM EDT
Terre d'Hermes Parfum
Tom Ford Extreme
GIT is actually a great choice! Southern California in spring....I'm thinking Terre d'Hermes (both concentrations are nice, but the EDT is in your price range), Bleu de Chanel, Mont Blanc Individuel, Eau Sauvage, Grey Vetiver, Gucci Pour Homme II, or perhaps Dolce and Gabbana The One.
Grey Vetiver would be nice. I'd add Bond No 9 Eau de New York.
Brineapple (Pineapple, Guava, Ylang Ylang, Marine Notes, Green Tea, Cade, Guaiacwood, Cedar Wood, Ozone) / Fur - (Vintage Musks, Woods, Leather) / Onsen Wood (Hinoki/Hiba/Cedar/Yuzu) / Winter XVI (Tree Saps, Extractions and Resins, Bois des Landes, Bourbon Vetiver, Spearmint, Frankincense & Myrrh) / L.O.M. Leather Oud Musk (Leather, Oud, Musk, Beeswax, Tobacco, Strawberry, Incense & Amber)
Congratulations! Aside from the already great choice of GIT, as well as the equally appropriate suggestions above, would also recommend either of these:
Eau Sauvage Parfum
Chanel pour Monsieur
GFF Bergamotto Marino;
most or all of these being easily available within the required price range.

Yeah, if GIT is ruled out, I'd go Grey Vetiver as well. Very classy and crisp for a Spring day.
I'm thinking vetivers as well, they're relatively fresh, and good for the outside, but at the same time they have enough complexity and elegance for a celebration. Grey vetiver is a great example. Others than come to mind (like Chanel Sycomore) would be above the price point.
Lalique White. Completely underrated and easy on the wallet for a new purchase. However, GIT is appropriate for the occasion if you decide not to go with something different.
My top 5 changes like the Tennessee weather.
The forecast for Saturday calls for a high of 73 degrees. Sounds like perfect GIT weather to me! GPH II would also work nicely, IMO.
Tom Ford Grey Vetiver, Dior Homme Sport (don't let the 'sport' fool you) and Terre d'Hermes (edt) come to mind.
For under $120 and considering that you have limited time to get your hands in the bottle and will most likely need to go to a store and buy...
I think Grey Vetiver by Tom Ford is excellent. You should be able to a 50ML for under $120

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I think you talked me into wearing GIT. I agree it's the best choice. I just wear it fairly often for work and wanted something different. I may go buy Grey Vetiver. We will see the morning of I guess. Thanks again for the reply's.
Honestly the only thing better than GIT for this situation is Green Valley.
Also try Diptyque Philosykos: Sweet, natural fig and greens.
... and the third day the heretical renegade was brought back on his holy path. Praise His Majesty GIT.
(please don't. The tan cotton SS suit sounded cool. Go some Diptyque, some subtle osmanthus/iris/carnation frag...Comme des Garçons did a cheap one, Red Series. Or just dare. Go Guerlain's Mitsouko, it super cheap! Or, some Czech & Speake? Oxford & Cambridge is a terrific lavender which is perfect for spring days.)

Many great suggestions above. If not for the wedding, I suggest you try Tiffany for Men Sport. It will serve you well.
