    Default Day Time, All Season Fragrance

    So I'm looking for a fragrance that I can wear during the Day Time, All Season when I go to University, the library to the grocery store etc. Just to give you an idea, I do own Sauvage edt (and it gives me headaches). I have seen Bleau de Chanel being recommended as a great option, but I literally can't find a single bottle anywhere in my location at this time. What else would you recommend me?

    Thank you for the suggestion. I was thinking of sampling Versace Dylan Blue, would this fragrance be considered to be in the same category as the one you suggested? Just want to make sure I'm comparing apples with apples

    Dylan Blue and Luna Rossa are pretty different.

    Both different but both pretty good choices. Luna Rossa being the better of the two, IMO.
    Look at ZC recommending the K!
    I would personally recommend you to try Aqua Di Gio Profumo. Versatile and good for all seasons.

    Yeah, ADG Profumo is also a good choice.

    Ha ha!

    I personally would probably go with Amber Cologne or Musk Cologne from Bortnikoff.

    Caron Pour Un Homme is always good for anything and is cheap. I enjoy it. Or Caron Pour Un Homme Sport.

    I greatly enjoy Zoologist Camel for these occasions too. It is not “offensive” but very enjoyable. I think it’s their most accessible mainstream fragrance I’ve sampled so far. Maybe a bit “formal” in feel though.

    Geranium Pour Monsieur from Malle would be another.

    The Bortnikoff Amber Cologne has my interest. I have some Bonheur that I covet and horde just for those once-a-year dinner date kinda dealies.

    How does the Caron PuH Sport compare to the regular?

    The Sport is spicier and in a way more interesting.

    Where in the world do you live where Bleu de Chanel is not available? Because I'm going to have to tailor my answer. Id assume if you don't have access to BdC, you don't have access to many many things. Anything niche I'd assume is out. Anything super new is out. AdG Profumo is a good call, but finding that is probably just as hard. If you are in the USA you can order samples online.
    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s 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.

    This specific fragrance, for whatever reason, is out of stock everywhere in my country right now. I might be able to find it retail, but I'm not going to pay a 20% premium on an already expensive fragrance, hope they restock soon. I live in Europe, so I have access to all the other designer fragrances, no worries.

    As for AdG Profumo, I put it against Dylan Blue and people say that AdG Profumo is more of a mature fragrance, where Dylan Blue suits the guy in his 20s. This is why I'm leaning towards Dylan Blue, but I will have to sample both first of course.

    Definitely a good scent for daytime/any season, IMO. Some say it has performance and longevity issues. On me, the stuff lasts around 4 to 5 hours.

    Lots of great choices here. Since you are college aged I would suggest l’homme as a great option. If you are a bit on the dark/mysterious side then look into Tom Ford Noir pour homme.

    Green Irish Tweed from Creed. Beautiful scent, good longevity, projection without being overly loud and everyone likes it. It's also on the cheap end of Creeds, especially at discounters like FragranceX and Fragrance Net (not to mention the For Sale forum on Basenotes.) It's classy and very wearable year round.
