    Jordan - Legend is a good value and a great cold weather scent.

    Givenchy Pi is good to wear in the Flint area, and is great Fall/Winter vanilla high school/college scent..

    My recommendation would be for a Givenchy fragrance as well, but I'd say go with Play Intense by Givenchy.

    Dior Homme Intense is good, Pure Malt and Pure Havane I'm not really a huge fan of. Maybe give L'Occitane Eau de Baux a try.

    Hmm I've sampled it but haven't given it a chance. Lots of people have recommended it before so maybe I'll have to give it a second look. Thanks.

    I would go the mugler route as these are my favorite winter frags. I would especially suggest pure malt for its sweet chocolate-whiskey notes. I also find pure leather my favorite cold weather frag. Pure leather can be had online for $40 if you search. Pure malt not as cheap but still worth the money

    Obviously you can trust my opinion, just look at my name

    Pure havanne is a good choice, it can be worn year round in my opinion, just not in the blazing heat

    Yeah, actually when I saw this thread in the forum list, Givenchy Play Intense was my first thought. You've got it already, so clearly I was thinking along the right lines.

    Instead of The One, check out Zegna Forte. Kinda similar, but I prefer it. Of all the ones you've listed that you are looking at, Pure Havane is my favourite. A few other people have suggested Lanvin Avant Garde, and like Pure Havane that is a really good tobacco and honey based gourmand, different from PH but I think you'll like it just as much. I think you can't go wrong with Spicebomb. I'd say get samples of Pure Malt and Dior Homme Intense and wear them a few times before you buy full bottles.

    If you have tried Eau des Baux and liked it, get it quick, L'Occitane seem to be slowly discontinuing it worldwide. Likewise, YSL don't seem to sell Body Kouros (created by the same person behind Boss Bottled, and one of my all time faves) everywhere in the world, but in that case the Internet is your friend!

    I've got a couple more suggestions to try. 212 Sexy Men, and Fuel for Life Homme.

    thanks so much for all the further feedback! I'll give all your suggestions a look no doubt. Also, i failed to mention that a 2ml sample of Spicebomb was also included in my order.
