    Default Can't really decide..

    Well i am among these scents, but can't really choose.. What would you choose and which has the best projection?

    Lalique Encre Noire
    Midnight in Paris EDT
    Guerlain Homme Intense
    Eau Sauvage EDP <-- Dunno about this, i'm only 20!
    Mugler A man <--- don't know if it is good for a summer night out, maybe too much?

    I'd say A men has the best projection of those in the list. It should be ok for a cool summer night out, but I agree that's probably a bit more wintery.

    Encre Noire is probably a safer bet for the summer, very fresh, but with nice woods. Good projection, although some people do not smell the main material of the drydown of Encre Noire too well. And I don't see why Eau Sauvage edp should be inappropriate for a young person, btw.

    I adore MiP EDP so that would be my choice. I get good projection and excellent longevity out of this one.

    Encre Noir would be my choice, but Guerlain Homme Intense might be a good choice for summer. However, I'd still pick EN.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Of those you mentioned I would pick Guerlain Homme Intense followed closely by MIP. A*men is nasty junk, but that's just IMHO.

    Thanks for the replies!
    I decide for the EN but don't know how good the projection will be.

    Go with original Guerlain Homme but if corner with these only aforementioned then the extreme version of Guerlain homme is the better one in the list.
