    Maybe this is common to people who are newer to this hobby: for me, my answer to that question seems to change a lot.

    And, in some cases, I feel what I selected for the day is the nicest out of everything.

    How does this work? I don't know... but, in answer to the question, today I'm saying Grey Flannel. Love this juice: strangely enough, I suppose, price-wise, it even falls into the cheapie category.

    Last time I got it was from a young dude that worked pumping gas at a gas station (weird)... I asked him what he was wearing , but he told me he "didn´t remember" the name of the fragrance... so I still don´t know what it might be...

    By the way... I saw again my elementary school love in colleague many years ago, and became amazed of how physically similar we both where... same skin color, narrow heads, slim and semi tall bodies... classmates even wondered if we were brother and sister...

    That day I learned that perhaps I´ve always been a little... narcissistic...

    I love this question on the nicest men's frag thread I do put Burberry London, Green Irish Tweed and Gucci PH II on the nicest list.

    I spray Burberry London prolly three around the neck, one on each wrist. I'm a wrist sprayer because I smell my own frag when it's a wrister That's my new word for the day

    Les Exclusifs De Chanel Eau De Cologne

    It is niceness in a bottle. It has absolutely no rough edges, no harshness, and is not challenging in any way. It is the fragrance equivalent to sitting on a porch on a sunny spring morning with the love of your life at your side and a snoozing puppy in your lap as you sip mimosas.

    This stuff is so smooth, so gentle and so nice that it makes anything else I've ever smelled seem a bit rough by comparison. Petit Matin, for example. I think Petit Matin is phenomenal, but after wearing Chanel's Eau De Cologne, I realize that Petit Matin isn't as smooth as I thought it was, which isn't to say Petit Matin isn't smooth... but Chanel's Eau De Cologne is ridiculous in terms of how smooth it is. The quality of this stuff is off the charts.

    That being said... this stuff is VERY niche. Most people would never even consider paying Chanel's Les Exclusifs prices for an easygoing nice freshie, and I can understand that completely. But if you want the nicest freshest smoothest Eau De Cologne scent you can get, I don't think you can do better than this one at any price. For me, it's worth it.

    “Nice”? I think of citrus & high quality soaps. I think of ‘clean’.
    Prada infusion d’homme, Adp essenzia.

    Would probably throw Prada L’homme & Rive Gauche in there as they smell nice & clean(although they achieve it by different means).

    +4 to this. One man’s nice is the next man’s distasteful. But for me personally if I’m going to just go on my personal instincts of what “nice” means (one thing it means to me is not very bold but pleasant):

    SIXTEEN92 - Formula 86
    Imaginary Authors - The Soft Lawn
    Creed - Original Vetiver
    Stephane Humbert Lucas 777 - Taklamakan
    Tom Daxon - Salvia Sclerea
    Santa Eulalia - Vesper
    Eight & Bob - Memoires de Mustique
    Tom Ford - Vanille Fatale
    Majda Bekkali - J'ai fait un reve
    Xerjoff - Nio

    I enjoy all of these and would call them very "nice."

    Boy, that stuff sure is nice. I may need to seek a decant at some point. The main thing holding me back is the performance, but I need to give it another try to see if maybe it's deceptive in how it wears. I don't mind if a scent wears close to the skin if it lasts.

    Wonderfully stated and ringing endorsement! I've been working hard to streamline my collection and haven't purchased anything since December, however this is next on my list and will be one of the very few I add all year.

    Double check whether it's anosmia. One spray I can smell for ages. It lasts forever on paper too, but if I apply more on skin I lose it within minutes.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.
