    Question Signature scents

    Hello guys, I'm looking for a signature scent for daytime and all seasons, currently Dior Sauvage is my daytime signature scent, I love the scent but I can't deny the fact that I smell like every other guy, searching for something a bit more unique.
    I'd like to stick with a fresh scent but I find some of them to be quite boring like Bleu de Chanel imo, also not looking for an office fragrances, just something I can wear everyday to university. I like masculine and interesting scents with a hint of sweetness, I thought about CAHSEE, Versace Dylan Blue or just sticking with Dior Sauvage.

    What do you guys think? Any recommendations?

    Welcome to Basenotes!

    How about Egoiste by Chanel? It's a great one.

    Have you tried Eau Sauvage? it's fresh too, but different from Sauvage. Citrusy, more natural and relaxed.

    Welcome to you Zephir! Enjoy your time here at Basenptes! Another vote for Eau Sauvage.

    How many times have you actually smelled that on another person? I live in a large California city and can count on two fingers the number of times I'm smelled fragrances on strangers in the past 6 months. One was a woman, one was a man and I didn't stick around sniffing either of them to try to determine what the scents were. Nor could have I identified them if I had.

    Even back when I wasn't self-employed and I worked in a cubicle in close proximity to other people, I don't remember smelling any scents on anybody, ever.

    Wear what you like. The odds of running into someone else wearing it are slim. And if you do, it'll give you something to talk about.

    And if you're afraid your next girl will compare you to the dozens of prior dudes she's dated who also wore the scent... maybe find a girl who hasn't dated so many guys!

    I can agree with this.

    Thank you!

    It's definitely on my radar but I have never smelled it and in my country it is hard to get samples, is it worth blind buying it?

    No, never. Would it be appropriate for an easy grab everyday scent? Also are we talking about the Parfum?

    Oh, I guess I forgot to quote the users. In the first one I'm replying to @freewheelingvagabond about Chanel Egoïste. And in the second one to @cacio about Eau Sauvage.

    I am not an advocate of blind buying as a rule but for these two I would make an exception - both are excellent examples of 'masculines'

    For Eau Sauvage, Cacio is talking about the edt.

    I would do a Dior Homme flanker. Maybe Cologne or Sport ?

    Signature scents are tough to figure out. The one you like to have on the most is the right one.
    Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Pomegranate Noir, Midnight in Paris EDP, Feeling Man, Essence of John Galliano, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage),...etc.

    Seeking decant/sample of Aramis Calligraphy Rose, Penhaligon's Esprit de Roi, PdE Ambre Russe, Jil Sander Feeling Man ....etc. I have samples to swap.

    I think you'd like Aventus, but like Sauvage, you'll smell like everybody else out there.

    I also like the suggestions for Egoiste and for Eau Sauvage Parfum.

    Give Aqua Di Gio Profumo a shot as well.

    What do you folks think of Bvlgari Man Black Cologne and Boss Bottled? Those are the two I keep going back to.
