    Default Spicebomb, Kiton Men or Dior Higher ?

    Hello,
    I tested many fagrances last week at my local fragrance store. But now I can't decide between Kiton Men, Dior Higher and Spicebomb :/ Which one is more appealing to women ? My girlfriend loves scents like Hugo Man (Her favorite), Lacoste Blanc,007 James Bond, Nikos Sculpture Homme, Prada Infusion D'Homme, Esprit Simply You for Him, 1 Million. I guess she will like Kiton more according to her preferences (she likes fresh (floral) scents and dislikes heavy and too sweet/cloying scents).
    Is the Kiton Men good for Fall ? And I read many comments that you should wear a suit & tie for this one. But my style is more casual (Shirts,V-Necks,Jeans). I am 22 years old

    Your opionions ? I'm stuck between these 3 :/

    IMO Spicebomb is a much better fragrance.

    and also better for Fall I guess :O BTW: I just smelled the Kiton on a test stripe but I don't think that is similar to Hugo. Does it smell for anyone similar to Hugo Men ? What bothers me too is the fact that some people say it is a old men's scent and that I am too young for it. (I also look younger than 22). Is this really just more of a suit & tie scent ?

    Well, you certainly don't need a suit and tie to wear Kiton Men, that's ridiculous. Kiton is a great all round scent.

    Spicebomb is a very nice oriental - I'd personally only wear it for going out at night, not to work (it gives the impression you'd rather be out partying somewhere).

    Higher - I can't remember anything about it.

    But you have me beat. You know what your girlfriend likes. Of the one's she likes, why not buy either
    1. The one she likes most, or
    2. The one you like most, or
    3. The cheapest one.
    Cheers,

    Kiton Men is so versatile, I'd pick that.

    Less likelier choice, but still a personal recommendation would be Dior Higher, truly underrated lighter, fresher scent.

    BTW: do you prefer the Dior Higher or Dior Higher energy ?

    and is the Dior also a summer scent or versatile and also suitable for the fall/winter ?
