    While not my most favorite smelling fragrances of all time, I'd put another vote up for GIT and add Bleu De Chanel EDT to the list.

    Bleu de Chanel EDT is a good one. Green Irish Tweed/Cool Water would work but I'm not a fan of that scent.

    IMO,

    For universality, regardless of age, season, occasion, the gold standard answer is Creed Green Irish Tweed. Only a tiny number of people will be offended by this scent, so it works in any situation. The whole scent profile it has is very natural and pleasing. At the same time, it gets very positive reactions. I've had strangers ask what I'm wearing and suspected a few people in stores were following my scent trail trying to figure out who was emanating the scent.

    For me, personally, I have selected Creed Spice & Wood as my catch-all scent, but I think it is better for my age group (40's) and is extremely classy. It's not intended to try to catch attention or impress anyone. It's not offensive in any way.

    So, basically, if you want to do very little research and don't want to pick out something that's exclusively 'you', but you still want some kind of exclusivity/difference with what most people wear, then Creed Green Irish Tweed is the easy answer. When you smell it and wear it you will understand why it is the default answer from many on here. The odds are extremely high that you'll enjoy it. I consider it one of the 'few' fragrances I'm confident recommending as a blind-buy, even at its expensive price.

    Many of the fragrances mentioned in this thread are daytime fragrances.

    Something like Bleu EDT would fit the bill.

    It wouldn’t be my #1 but man is this one amazing fragrance. Every time I wear this it moves up a notch. There is nothing quite like it.

    My number one go to would be Dior Eau Sauvage. Call me crazy but I love it and it suits my age well at 55. I do not own a single niche fragrance yet so I’m still an amateur frag collector.

    Well, anything I would have picked is pretty much been stated already. Obviously this is an old thread that’s been bumped, but it’s still fun to play along.

    Aside from everything already mentioned, I’ll add Gucci Pour Homme II and Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum.

    From a female point of view, these are the all-time safe choice:

    New York intense
    Invasion Barbara
    Ormonde Man
    Derby
    Upper Ten for men by Lubin
    Curion by Helmut Lang
    Mefisto by Xerjoff

    Slighy on the playful side:
    Noir Epiece by Frederick Malle
    Sandor’s 70 by Carner Barcelona

    My first current thought is New York Intense.

    My previous pick of Pour Un Homme is a close second and might do better in hotter weather.

    I guess I’m one of that tiny number. I received a bottle as a very generous gift some years ago, and gave up on one try. Wondering if I’d been unfair, or if my aesthetic had been naive, I dusted it off recently and tried again. I found it unwearable: one of the few true scrubbers I’d ever applied. I realize many people love it, and that’s fine—I’m not judging you or anyone else for that choice!—but unless there’s something peculiarly wrong with my bottle, you couldn’t pay me to wear Green Irish Tweed.

    Another vote for bleu EDT.
    Not my favorite but extremely adaptable, classy enough to dress up, casual enough for lounging about and works in all seasons.

    Castile

    It's clean - perfect for work.
    It's polished - a fine choice for special occasions.
    It's cozy - a fantastic pick for dates thanks to a warm sensual base.
    And it's somewhat unexpected because it doesn't fit into current trends. It isn't aquatic, it's not sporty, and it isn't a chemical bomb loaded with fake woods nonsense that's flooding the designer shelves these days.
