    For me, none on your list are "must haves". The only one I would wear is Burberry London, and I don't remember it being much of a projector... That said, if all of those are *your* favorites, then as Trauerkraut mentioned previously, you probably know which ones are the ones that project more than others on your list already... If you are open to a possible replacement for Burberry London that is more of a projector, my advice is to give Costume National Homme a try on skin and see if it is to your tastes. That one is a major projector that replaced London in my collection.
    Current Top Favorites:
    1) Portrait of a Lady (EdP Frédéric Malle)
    2) Giorgio for Men vintage (Giorgio Beverly Hills)
    3) Dia Man vintage edt (Amouage)
    4) Les Nombres d'Or Vetyver (Mona di Orio) - tie
    4) Lalfeorosa (O'driù) - tie

    6) Anat Fritz Original Formula and Classical (Anat Fritz)
    7) Captain vintage (Molyneux)
    8) Tzora (Anat Fritz)

    Different scents can project and last differently on each individual.

    I've had good projection and longevity from both of the YSL fragrances you have listed, and I hear most do as well.

    Burberry and Issey are versatile, although I'm not a big fan of Issey at all.

    If you own them already, you should have a better idea of what works better than we would.

    when I meant "top" I meant to say some of the more popular ones among mens fragrances--these aren't necessarily my choices simply because I have not smelled any of them. So I still would need as much input as possible.

    Please do your entire community a favor... Avoid One Million. In my area, everyone smells like JPG Le Male and PR One Million. Everyone.

    Out of your list, I would give the nod to both YSL fragrances and to Burberry London. I would not purchase any of the remainder.

    If I could venture out for a moment, take a look at Chanel's Platinum Egoiste and Chanel's Allure. With the exception of "seductive" (I would not consider any of your mentioned fragrances particularly seductive either), these will probably get the job done just as well as the YSLs and the Burberry. Perhaps better depending on your personality.

    For me, your list contains two must haves, D&G The One for Men and YSL La Nuit de l'Homme. I don't like anything else on your list, at least of the ones I've tried

    Default Re: Fragrence Advice

    Hey OP, are these fragrances that you own or are you looking to add 5 new ones to your collection?

  17. #17

    Default Re: Fragrence Advice

    Burberry London, D&G The One, YSL L'homme, Issey Miyake, and MB Individual are all really nice ones. If your thinking about buying 1 Million I'd looking into a fragrance called Lomani Ab Spirit Millionaire which is very close to it and cost about $14.

  18. #18

    Default Re: Fragrence Advice

    From this list, would recommend The One and London as top picks for most, if not all of the required categories.

    My ranking for you list would go like this....haven't tried the Geir, Givenchy or Cartier

    Of your list, I have and like Givenchy Gentleman Only.
    Is the juice worth the squeeze?

    Default Re: Fragrence Advice

    Are you set on these? Why not strike 2 or 3 off the list and get something more pricey (and therefore more rare, and perhaps higher quality)? Up to you of course, but that is always one option.

    But please... do avoid One Million . Every time I smell it I picture a thug-looking fellow, sagging shorts, backwards cap, wearing garish white sneakers and black socks. Simply horrifying.

    Why don't you just go out and smell stuff and choose what you like?

    ...in that case: put the question once more, but then without the list...!

    Yea I am getting a lot of people telling me to avoid 1 million and Le Male. As far as fragrances that are pricey go, I currently own Creed Green Irish Tweed and Original Vetiver (4oz) in addition to Annick Goutal Duel. Other than that I also own The Dreamer and Eau Fraiche from Versace, and True Religion--Drifter and Caesars Man Legend (Idk if anyone has heard of this lol its from the 80's and a lot of ppl say it is similar to Drakkar Noir)

    what is the difference between lomani ab spirit millionaire and 1million? 1 million is pretty damn sweet and has that superficial macho guy vibe if you ask me
