    Default Mature cool weather scent

    Hey guys, I'm looking for a nice mature cool weather scent. I have a couple that I feel I've outgrown a bit. With a lot of family events coming up I'd like something relatively versatile, but I'm not afraid to be bold. Here's some I'm considering:

    Dior Homme
    Dior Homme Intense
    24 Gold
    Midnight in Paris EDP
    CdG 2 Man
    Dsquared Potion

    I plan to buy a bottle of everything listed eventually, but which one should I purchase first?

    Any replies are appreciated.
    Check out my swap thread.

    I'd go with Dior Homme or Intense, outside the list YSL Body Kouros. Maybe Lolita Lempicka Au Masculine or Givenchy Pi

    24 Gold. Well, 24 Gold and MiP, since those 2 combined are still less than DH or DHI. And if you are going to get them all at some point anyway, might as well grab 2 now instead of one.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Tom Ford - Grey Vetiver
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    6. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    7. Creed - Virgin Island Water
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Creed - Original Cologne
    10. Clive Christian - 1872 for Men

    From your list I have CDG 2Man and enjoy it in the cold weather. Outside the list, either LIDGE or Or Black are two very nice reasonably priced fragrances.

    My vote for either DH, if you like something retro, or CDG2 man, if you want avantgarde.

    From your list, I have Potion on my to buy list, but it's purely because I've found I like a lot of frags by Annick Menardo and I want to get more. I only have Body Kouros at the moment.

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned Chanel Egoiste yet.

    But for most mature, that you can pick up pretty much anywhere, you cannot beat Guerlain Heritage.

    Comme des Garcons 2 Man is far more interesting than the others; that would be my pick. Although, you can't really go wrong with Dior Homme and Homme Intense as they are very pleasing scents.

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I think I may end up going with Potion. I sprayed some from a sample on my hand again and the cinnamon with cashmere is such an amazing combination I just have to have it.

    Dior Homme or Intense will probably be after that followed by 24 Gold, unless I see a really good deal on it. As for 2 Man, my decant of Avignon is almost out so I kind of want to buy a full bottle of that first. Though I'm kind of surprised it got so much love.

    Again, I appreciate the replies!
