    Default Best everyday scent

    I'm after an everyday scent.... Not aventus as I'm after something a little cheaper. I was thinking of Boss Bottled. Wondering if there are any other suggestions.

    I want it to be worn in the day time, most seasons. Not offensive, likeable.

    Thanks

    This! I couldn't have said it any better.

    Dump Boss Bottled (no offense here, just my opinion).

    To find your "everyday fragrance", go to your local perfumery and sample, sample, sample. Don't ask the salesperson for his/her advice (she will direct you to One Million and... Boss Bottled). And try not to consider too much the hyped fragrances on this board or the other board starting with an F. Lastly, avoid making a link between price and quality/scent/performance.

    Any lemony cologne. Most things you can purchase on the high street apart from the sweet bombs.

    This, and focus on sampling Chanel, and maybe Dior.

    Most Chanel fragrances are pretty good as every day fragrances. Also try Hermes - they have some very versatile scents.

    I do regard some things as more suitable for everyday signature scents. Dior Homme and vintage Carven Homme come to mind. The current formulation of Ferre for Man was made more "friendly" but still has character and is amazingly inexpensive.

    Indeed.

    The very idea is anathema to most, like eating the same meal of chicken and potatoes every night. Eventually you just get tired of chicken and potatoes.

    This! Lemony scents give you a fresh feeling and usually are more than appropriate for work settings!

    Bleu de Chanel would be a good one if it had better longevity... I'm not a huge fan but most people love it.

    You need something with great longevity that can be worn all year round, so I would say Fahrenheit. But then again, a lot of people don't like fahrenheit so it could be risky... Jeeze I don't know man, ask somebody else lol

    Glad I went back up and re-read the OP before posting Aventus

    Cheap every day scent? Cool Water is an easy one. Dior Homme or Dior Homme Sport. Bleu De Chanel would be a solid choice for someone on a budget.

    i dont think i have ever worn the same scent twice in a row!!

    agree, basenoters are about the wide variety of fragrances, not having one bottle of juice just so you dont smell like a sweaty armpit at work!
