    Realistically, it'd probably be whatever my top 5 is (or 5 of my top #) instead of ones for specific occasions.

    But playing along a bit.. something like:

    1. Your work / office scent - Guerlain Vetiver or Roja Vetiver Parfum Pour Homme
    2. Your formal scent - Chanel Pour Monsieur EdTC
    3. Your after the gym scent - Not really sure what this means; evening scent? Kouros!
    4. Your date-night scent - CH Men
    5. Your chillin home with your girfriend/wife scent - since I personally don't love Aventus like a bunch of other stuff, despite her enjoying it, I'd maybe go for.. Declaration Essence or Eau d'Hermes perhaps.

    2. Your formal scent

    Chanel Pour Monsieur EDP Summer / Roja Parfums Danger Pour Homme Winter

    3. Your after the gym scent

    Clive Christian 1872 for Men Summer / Creed Green Irish Tweed Winter


    4. Your date-night scent

    Good catch! I always find it hard to choose for select occasions, but Kouros and Rive Gauche pour Homme should be in there.

    For me, this is easy.

    1. Penhaligon's Castile - Anytime, anywhere. Work. Dates. Casual. Formal. This one can do it all because there's never a wrong time to smell clean, but don't let the clean smell in the air fool you, because the base is sensual, and that makes it a wonderful scent for getting close with someone special.

    2. Histoires De Parfums 1725 Casanova - Anywhere dressy. Work. Formal. And especially dates.

    3. Creed Royal Oud - Anywhere dressy. Is there an echo in here? Work. Dates. Formal. It's superb.

    4. Les Exclusifs De Chanel Eau De Cologne - Anytime, anywhere, but it's especially good in summer. This one is the ultimate modern eau de cologne.

    5. Hanae Mori H.M. EDT - Casual fun, especially fun daytime dates. This one's a bit too playful for shooting pool with the guys, but it's marvelous for flirty fun.
