    Default Next Two? Any Recommendation?

    Hi there! This is my first post and I am glad to stumble into this forum.
    I've been buying fragrance for many years now to wear on at work in the corporates.
    Right now, I have Aventus, Terre dHermes and Penhaligon Blenheim
    Bouquet in my collection.
    I'm thinking of adding two more to round up for my weekly wear. I am thinking of GIT and Fahrenheit. I would appreciate any inputs in this forum.
    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to you Greenscent! I think adding GIT and Fahrenheit would be great choices to add to your lineup.

    Hi Greenscent and welcome aboard! Git is a great choice. Also try parfums de marly herod, awesome tobacco frag. Check out the sales thread, i saw a bottle of git recently for a good price. 2nd page "AlanB"

    Thanks for the warm welcome ! I buy my fragrances at department stores because I would like to try it first before committing, unless it is a repeat purchase.
    I will try out the recommended fragrances.

    GIT and Fahrenheit are already very great choices, but perhaps you might also like to sample TF Grey Vetiver and or TDH Pure Parfum as additional fragrance ideas, both very competent among the better strength vetiver options

    Welcome!

    Yours seem good choices. A perfume I like a lot for office type of work is Chanel Sycomore. It's fresh and pleasant, but has a touch of woods so it's quite elegant. Unfortunately, it has limited distribution and is available only at Chanel boutiques or certain department stores (like Saks)

    Go for it.

    L'Instant de Guerlain pour Homme (the EDT not the Extreme) smells great and is good for office wear.

    Fahrenheit isn't my personal favorite, but it's a good choice. I've bought many vials of GIT over the past year, it's certainly a great choice. Welcome!

    Or you could just order samples from thedecantshop.com.. You can get a 4oz bottle of git for roughly $130 here in the sales thread ($100 for 75ml). You're gonna pay $400 for a 4oz retail. For that much you could buy three 4oz bottles here or at discounters. Fragrancenet.com & beautyencounter.com are good legit online places with good deals & return policy. Sorry man, not trying to pressure you.. just trying to help you out.

    Two excellent choices in GIT and Fahrenheit indeed!

    Also maybe try Eau Sauvage and Mont Blanc Individuel

    Hello Fellow Fragrance Head! Get the GIT for sure. Check into "Gendarme". Trust me, it's one of the most overlooked colognes. Smells fresh and So Clean Clean. Huge compliment getter. Try it at Nordstroms, some have it. Truuuust me on it. And nobody wears it or knows it.

    These are more nice ones to add to your previous two to try out. That should keep you busy for a while!

    Happy new year to all !

    I went out today to buy both Fahrenheit and GIT. I am indeed building a collection here.

    I tried out Eau Savage, Gendarme and Dior Homme as well. I am seriously considering Eau Savage, love the scent ! The other recommended fragrances are unavailable, but that's ok, the five bottles plus a forthcoming one will keep me busy for a while.

    Thanks again to your contribution.
