    Question Your top best light projection fragrances (Designer)??

    What are your top picks for light projection, female pleasing designer fragrances?

    Many times these might be referred to as office safe fragrances. I want this but also
    the fragrances that can be worn in various circumstances, casual, night out, formal,
    romantic, refreshing.......not one fragrance for all of these but various fragrances
    that fit into the light project/great smelling segment. I do not care if it has huge longevity...
    Short longevity is fine......great smelling and a wide variety of scent profiles, if that makes sense....
    Just looking for your best and favorites, known and under radar...

    Thanks

    The king of this sector is hands down D&G The One for me. It fulfills all of your criteria, some with joy and a few to my chagrin.

    Armani Mania, Tom Ford for Men, and Guerlain Homme would be great for all of the scenarios you describe as well as office.
