    Default Looking for a boozy, general crowd pleaser

    Hey all! My collection is growing as I currently have bottles of:
    -Armani Code Profumo
    -Versace Eros
    -Bleu De Chanel (EDT)
    -Dior Sauvage
    -YSL L'homme
    -YSL L'homme Libre
    -Versace Eau Fraiche
    -Polo Black
    -Mont Blanc Legend Intense
    -Diesel Fuel for Life

    I think I have a great mix of freshies and versatile fragrances that fit the summer/spring months. The only winter/fall scent that I have (and love) is Code Profumo. I like boozy notes (I think) and want to find something that is well liked by many without being harsh. I recognize this is completely subjective, but I'm 23 and not looking for anything that may be construed as "older." Would Replica Jazz Club or TM PM fit the bill? Any ideas are welcomed! Thanks!

    Perhaps Pure Malt and Pure Malt Creation, Eau des Baux could also work

    The best boozy fragrance that I own is Gatsby by Pacoma. Though this fragrance has been unfortunately discontinued, it can still be found on eBay. I find that this one has a very prominent cognac note that is warm, rich and has a sweetness found with brandy.

    Though it may be a "mature" scent, I believe it's what you're looking for. Another positive is that I can almost guarantee you won't smell it on anyone else.

    Here's a listing from the seller that I bought mine from.

    Many good suggestions already. Jazz replica would certainly do.
    I'm tossing in Chanel Egoiste for something very warm.

    Pure Malt will probably be a great choice.

    Great ideas so far! I'm hoping to find pure malt at a TJ Maxx like a lot of other BN'ers have been able to. I need to keep my eyes peeled for a deal on Jazz Club around here and some of the fragrance groups because the price is a little steeper than I would like to pay.

    Wow Pure Malt at a TJ Max?? I guess I'm going to have to make a trip here soon. I would have never thought that would happen in a million years!
    Another option for you may be Bentley for Men Intense and its relatively affordable on Fragrancenet.

    If you can, try to seek out the EDT which has become increasingly difficult to find.

    Pure Malt would likely be a very good choice for you.

    I'll also add Mona di Orio Vanille if you're willing to spend a little bit more.

    Kilian's Single Malt is my very favorite "boozy" fragrance, but it's rather expensive. Sample first.
    Basenotes sales: 18.21 Sweet Tobacco, Tiffany for Men Concentree, TDC de Bachmakov, Atelier Pomelo Paradis & Vetiver Fatal, Tiffany for Men mini, 17 Cuba Paris fragrances, L'Essence de Cerruti, Reyane Insurrection, numerous popular SAMPLES! http://www.basenotes.net/threads/419...ples-amp-More!

    Pure Malt is the obvious suggestion. You could also try Fahrenheit Parfum and Dior Homme Intense.
