    Default Opinion: What should this guy wear?

    Thought I'd play a little taste game/thought experiment.

    Simple premise: in your opinion, based on what you see in the photo, what should the man in this picture wear fragrance-wise?

    I'm going to say Polo, just so we can get that layup out of the way as it's too easy.

    I'm curious to see what responses all of you come up with.

    Something traditionally British like Blenheim Bouquet or perhaps Opus 1870/Sartorial by the same house slightly more updated choices around the same lines,
    while almost any classic Floris male fragrance might be appropriate as well
