    Anything is fine as long as you keep it discreet. What’s wrong with whatever fragrance you already have? I’d rather keep that $100 on hand, in case that first date gets a little more...interesting. But things only get interesting when the heavy lifting is done by you...not your fragrance.

    It depends on the climate, the woman, the setting.

    Are you going to a rave or steak & lobster dinner? Or the theater. Maybe rock climbing.

    These all call for different things.

    Diamondflame makes a key point. Save your ducats for a while. Maybe if you hit it off you can go fragrance shopping with her. See if she likes Dior Homme. If so, she's a keeper.

    I would go with D&G The One EDP

    It performs at just the right level for a date. There's some projection, but it's not too strong, and it lasts about 6 to 8 hours. with hours 5--8 being pretty quiet or close to the skin. The smell is just very appealing and likable. It's a sweet, dark amber and tobacco. It smells masculine but has that nice, sweet, alluring quality. It's not too heavy either, so it shouldn't be a distraction or intrude her space. Overall, it's very smooth and rounded, on the warmer side, elegant/classy without feeling the least bit uptight or stuffy.

    Also adding Chergui, Rochas Man, AMen Pure Malt and/or Pure Havane, Endymion by Penhaligon's, Ungaro III and/or Ungaro III Parfum Aromatique, Eau des Baux, Guerlain Homme Intense and/or Guerlain LIDGE, each of these on budget and each of these quite versatile and appropriate on a date, even the very specifics (setting, time of the day, outfits etc.) of this particular date may still be subject(ed) to change

    I would wear Leau Bleue D'issey, Narcisco Rodriguez, Farenheit, Vitage 212 Men, Burberry Touch, Drakar Noir, Ombre Leather, something that I'm 90% sure she didn't smell on any other guy on another date. Something unique with a punch. Shes gonna get the same me on the first date that she would get on the 10th date, and i usually wear one of the above over sometime light and inoffensive.

    It depends on your personality, style, region, and what the nature of the date entails.
