    Walking around the city with no purpose (flaneur) in winter
    Dinner with friends in summer
    Dinner with strangers in summer
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Whatever strikes my fancy on that day. With amazing options at my disposal for every situation, this is the best way to go about it. As for sex, it doesn’t matter one bit; when the heat is on...it is ON (FIRE).

    Default Re: One choice for:

    - Date on Autumn: 2 Man
    - Sex (any season): probably nothing specifically for sex.
    - Going to the cinema on spring: Probably nothing. Maybe something light and unobtrusive in case the cinema is crowded.
    - Walking around the city with no purpose (flaneur) on winter: Dior Homme Parfum
    - Dinner with friends in Summer: classic EdC or neroli scent.
    - Dinner with strangers in Summer: same as for friends.
    1. No, never blind buy (I do, but do as I say, not as I do. I'm taking no responsibility for your fragrance gambling).
    2. Get them both. You're a Basenoter and you know you're going to end up purchasing them both eventually.
    3. Yes, it has been reformulated.
    4. Looking for a signature scent? You've come to the wrong place.

    Tending to agree with an all situations allrounder and preferring to name a few would wear for any of these occasions with joy, enthusiasm and contentment, including yet also in no particular order:

    - Armani Eau pour Homme,

    - Caron pour un Homme,

    - Azzaro pour Homme l'Eau,

    - any Eau Sauvage EDT or EDP/Parfum rendition, possibly also its Fraicheur Cuir flanker.

    - TDH Eau Fraiche,

    - Creed OV,

    - any possible/available rendition of the Voyage d'Hermes line,

    - ADP Colonia (possibly also its flankers),

    - YSL pour Homme,

    - possibly at least one citrus fragrance from the l'Occitane ones (including but not limited to Cedrat, Verdon and anything else comparable),

    - at least one Lalique Homme EDP version,

    - Cerruti 1881 Edition Blanche,

    - also at least one Hugh Parsons EDP, again among the ones with more citrus

    I do consider myself a bit of a flaneur, so this one is particularly relevant. Seems like something classic and French would be appropriate - maybe Guerlain Vetiver or Habit Rouge. Something a bit dandyesque but also daring. And of course, the flaneur being an observer more than participant in the world, it would have to be something with a relatively unobtrusive sillage and projection. No Tuscan Leather for the flaneur!

    good answer.

    also, WHICH city makes a huge difference!

    Paris would be the easy choice, but in my case (I live in Central/Northern California) it often ends up being SF Bay Area or Seattle (my hometown which I visit often). There's nothing I enjoy more than walking up and down Market St. in SF, taking it all in. Although for SF, given its techie reputation, perhaps something a bit more modern? But still with a connection to the Baudelaire-style flaneur. Guerlain Vetiver Extreme?
