    Default Best year round scent?

    I am a college student looking to pick up another bottle. I have quite a few already, this time I am looking for one that would be good year round. One that I can reach to when I don't know what else to wear that day. I'd prefer something that i can buy in a store near me also. So best smelling, year round good performance, mall scent?

    Edit: Some that I enjoy and own now are Bleu de Chanel, AHSEE, and Dior Homme.

    Perhaps Terre D'Hermes

    Your Dior Homme certainly does as well. In any case, I think a fresh vetiver is good for all occasions: for instance, Tom Ford Grey Vetiver.

    Dolce and Gabbana Pour Homme was recently rereleased and I think it's a good year-rounder. Kind of sporty/fruity and a crowd-pleaser.

    Also Armani Code

    And Versace Pour Homme

    In her bottled up is a woman peppery as curry,
    a yam of a woman of butter and brass,
    compounded of acid and sweet like a pineapple,
    like a handgrenade set to explode,
    like goldenrod ready to bloom.

    Also adding, apart from the various great suggestions so far, Bleu de Chanel EDP (in case of not already using its respective EDP version already), TDH Parfum, Gucci pour Homme II, Dior Homme Sport, the regular (non-flanker) Allure by Chanel and Mugler Cologne, in no particular order, aside from the current testing preferences and/or possibilities
    Currently wearing: Open by Roger & Gallet

    The ones you're enjoying now include a couple I was going to recommend.

    My thoughts are similar to Ken's: look at flankers of those: Bleu edp, Allure Homme, Dior Homme Intense. For something different, Grey Vetiver sounds like a good idea, or the one's Kotori mentioned.

    +1 on Armani Code and Bleu de Chanel - I'll add Givenchy Pour Homme Blue Label some say it's more spring/summerish, but I bought it in the winter and like it anytime, on me, the ceder gives it a nice warmth which makes it work fine in the cold (also, if you have not tried it, don't decide on first sniff, I hated the first few minutes but LOVED the rest of it)

    For those recommending Grey Vetiver, I haven't smelled it yet, though are you referring to the EdT or EdP version of it?

    I've tried the edt version, so when I mention Grey Vetiver, that's what I'm thinking of.
