    Default What to wear to ugly christmas sweater party?

    I'm going to an ugly christmas sweater party on Friday and can't decide which fragrance to wear! I don't go to a lot of parties, so I'm excited to wear something a lot of people (many of whom I don't know) will smell! I'm 20 years old as well if that helps!

    These are my "winter" frags:

    Bond no. 9 NY oud
    Dolce and gabanna The one
    Spicebomb
    John varvatos vintage
    Animale Animale

    Burberry London (love it, but my bottle is 5 years old and I feel lacks projection and longetivity)

    Sample of every creed
    Ck one shock
    Thierry mugler pure shot (any season)

    Any feedback would be nice! thanks!

    And here's a picture of the sweater I'm wearing!

    I was about to say Burberry London too, lol.
    I would say something cinnamon like. Probably Spicebomb.
    Less fragrance is more.

    Keep it subtle, unlike your sweater.

    What's an 'ugly christmas sweater party'?

    edit: So its a party where people wear wool sweaters with Christmas motif.
    I don't really fully understand the concept of these things. But without getting into a very long discussion, if i decided to go to one of these parties, i would wear what i would have worn that day regardless.

    I like New York Oud from your list.

    Methinks it's some kind of hipster phenomenon. Y'know, fraught with irony and all. Like "Isn't it incongruous that we're going out of our way to wear ugly clothes to a party, an occasion that people generally try to wear their nicer clothes?!"

    I would go full frontal irony and smear myself with rotting tuna. Thatt'd be uber-hipster. "Isn't it totally ironic that I'm coming to a party wearing the scent of rotting tuna when everyone expects you to smell 'nice' when attending a party? You think I stink? How mainstream of you!"

    It is true that fish stink. It is also true that the river is
    beautiful. But the river would be beautiful despite the fish. What
    is noxious remains so.

    That is not to say that sh*t is not useful when buried in the wheat
    field. Bread made from the field tastes sweet, wine from the arbor
    sweetest. All things serve a purpose, but that is no reason to
    glorify what is abominable. A man must still watch where he walks
    and keep his sandals clean.

    I think SpiceBomb is a good choice. The performance is just right (don't want to go too loud), it's a crowd pleaser, and it is nice and festive for the holidays. Burberry London is also a good choice.

    Spicebomb, loud but not too loud, and a compliment getter to boot.

    In the UK last Friday was “Christmas Jumper Day”. I didn’t participate but got myself noticed by wearing Armani Code Ultimate, and topping it up later in the day!

    Put on the London... and THAT is not an ugly sweater (then again, maybe I'm getting older as the youth are getting youthier).
