    Default What to wear to Prom?

    I'm looking for a frag that my date will find both sexy and wanting to smell me the whole time. Anything but the One Million which everyone at my school wears. any price range just nothing like creed expensive.

    I would wear Allure Homme Sport to the prom. That'd be a good way to go.

    mmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

    This is a hard one...

    From your tried: none

    From the ones you have, Bleu and Sauvage would be obvious choices, but I guess a lot guys would be wearing those as well...
    That leaves you with AHS... but if if you want the date to find you sexy and wanting to smell... AHS would not work that well...

    That takes me Dior Homme, but it´s a risky one, since date might not like it, so that takes me to Dior Homme Sport (which would be a good fragrance to increase to wardrobe...

    So, DHS would be my choiche... but.... that takes me to: light blue by dolce, Aqua di gio, both versace´s (pour homme and eau fraiche) and l eau d issey, receive much more possitive feedback from women than the dior (in my experience)... but the dior would be a good pick...

    If you choose the dior, take an atomizer in case you need some more sprays...

    PS. cant recommend The One or the Mugler, since they are both "mature"... women in my world, do not like them...

    Default Re: What to wear to Prom?

    Im probably wearing either La Nuit or Sauvage to Prom this year myself.... Another to try would be F Black wonderful smell inexpensive too. But honestly you already got two good choices right in your wardrobe

    On another note i wouldn't worry about other guys wearing the same fragrance at my highschool most guys dont bother putting on cologne ever axe at most and the few that do wear whatever their dad has or some cheap stuff they got for Christmas few will be wearing anything nice... So just wear something you enjoy maybe take your date to try some scents and get her favorite i find girls enjoy doing that with me anyways

    I think the final 3 from thinking on this are either:
    -Pure Malt by Thierry Mugle
    -Dior Homme intense (2011)
    - D&G the one Intense (new)

  16. #16

    Default Re: What to wear to Prom?

    Out of those?Pure Malt would be my choice but can't go wrong with any Dior homme is a bit to mature for highschool imho but in a tux it would be quite a choice.

    I wore Fahrenheit to mine in the 80's/early 90's.
    Chances are not many others will wear it, but it's still a classic after all these years.

    For Dior Homme Intense, any version. To me, the newest version has even more vanilla in the base. I only researched this recently, from people posting at the time, and into 2012, but it seems like the first change occurred during 2011, around April 2011 maybe. More recently, I don't really know when, it changed again to the current version.

    2011 would be the first or second version, which are quite similar to each other. The original was maybe just a tad stronger. The current version is different, and competitive with the earlier versions, to me, and maybe more similar to original Dior Homme, more iris and vanilla, less dark chocolate.

    To me, Dior left the darker vibe to the newer Dior Homme Parfum and to Fahrenheit Parfum. For someone curious about vintage Dior Homme Intense, these other two Diors have some of that feel to me, only even more so.

    So I'd recommend current Dior Homme Intense, and maybe check out Fahrenheit Parfum if you want some more heavy Dior.

    Update: If you already have a 2011 Dior Homme Intense in hand, then you're all set. I have a bottle of 2011 and it's great. Whatever the mood strikes, though. I still imagine going in Allure Homme Sport, ever since the suggestion was mentioned. But Dior Homme Intense recently got me a compliment that seriously cheered me up, so it would be a dead heat for me, and I'd choose right before leaving the house for the night. It sounds brilliant. Have fun!

    Guerlain - Habit Rouge Dress Code
    Christian Dior - Fève Délicieuse

    Whichever fragrance you end up wearing, just remember to keep it light and close-wearing. If she could smell you from across the dance floor, rest assured you won't get to do any dirty dancing on Prom Night.

    CdG Man 2 worked out well for the "date night" thread guy.
    But for prom I have no idea. No idea about what kids these days like. Guess Sauvage maybe since you have it already

    Regular Dior homme for sure... Intense..... I would say no... But still thinking DHS is a better option

    Default Re: What to wear to Prom?

    I wore La Nuit last year. Dior Homme would also be a great choice. I'd go for a more sensual than fresh scent which is why I wouldn't do BdC or Sauvage despite liking them.
    Overall Top Ten :

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. Thierry Mugler Pure Havane
    3. Amouage Jubilation XXV
    4. Amouage Reflection Man
    5. Mont Blanc Individuel
    6. Dior Homme
    7. Parfums De Marly Herod
    8. Thierry Mugler Pure Malt
    9. Dolce Gabbana Light Blue Pour Homme
    10. Dior Sauvage
