    Default Free Fragrance - Which should I get?

    Hey,

    Hope everyone has had a good start to the week

    A friend of mine is helping his father-in-law move from his bungalow into sheltered accommodation and during the clear out they have found a box full of a selection of new/sealed fragrances (varying sizes), none of them are particularly niche or expensive but my friend has asked if I would like to have a few of them (he knows I like my frags lol!).

    The box contains (copied straight from his text so apologies for any spelling or name mistakes);

    Versace LíHomme
    Tabac Original
    Brut
    Old Spice
    4711 Original
    Davidoff Cool Water
    Aramis
    Ralph Lauren Safari
    Versace Blue Jeans
    Azzaro Pour Homme
    Paco Rabanne Pour Homme
    Calvin Klein Obsession
    Paul Smith Extreme
    Calvin Klein Eternity
    Cerruti 1881
    Mont Blanc Individuel
    Joop Homme
    Azzaro Chrome
    Lacoste Pour Homme
    Roberto Cavalli Uomo
    Lacoste Essential
    Cartier Declaration Essence
    Boss Bottled
    John Varvatos Men

    Iím a little stumped on what to pick myself, Iíd happily home all of them but If I were to pick just two or three of the fragrances found in the box which ones should I go for... if you were in my shoes which would you go for any why?

    He believes that there is a second box also full of fragrances but Iíll see where things go with that...
    My Most Complimented:

    1). Aventus - Creed
    2). Sauvage - Dior
    3). Allure Homme Sport - Chanel
    4). L'Homme - Prada
    5). Acqua Di Gio Profumo - Giorgio Armani

    Considering the situation there is a high chance the juice will be vintage in which case grab the Eternity, Obsession and Cool Water as the original takes of these 3 are quite good.

    Versace L'Homme, Old Spice, Safari and possibly, Eternity. Ideally, the whole box would work.

    Depending on how many of these are included or at least a possibility of getting (even more so if for free) would go for and thus be likely to recommend: Versace L’Homme, Azzaro pour Homme, Paco Rabanne Pour Homme, Cerruti 1881, CK Eternity, Lacoste pour Homme, Declaration Essence, in no particular order, should at least some if not all of these be offered

    My frugal self wouldnt get individuel since its only like 20 bucks, id probably shoot for cool water hoping vintage. Eternity would be second. Then cartier declaration essence. Just sampled that one the other day. It was aight.
    Itís tragic to think that heroic manís great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    I'd have all of them

    Even if they aren't favourites of mine, they will smell a whole lot better if they are free and vintage!
