    Lightbulb One Fragrance for One Month

    This March I'm going to wear only one fragrance for the whole month. You tell me which one! The one that gets the most mentions is the winner.

    The fragrance has to be:
    • Designer men's fragrance
    • Available for purchase in Toronto, Canada
    • Nothing from the Sauvage (Dior) range (those I can't stomach)


    Post your suggestion by this Friday (12:59PM EST on Feb 21).

    If you suggested the winner, I'll enter your name in a draw to win the bottle.

    Which one would it be? Pick it for me!

    My suggestion is Terre d'Hermès Parfum. I believe there is a Hermes boutique in Toronto.

    Your wardrobe doesn't seem to have any florals in it - so I'd suggest branching out a bit into the women's perfume counter.

    If you want to treat yourself - maybe Hermes Galop ($$$) or Kelly Caleche ($) (both floral-leathers). Available at Hermes or Saks.

    Cheaper end - Mugler Aura (weird green thing, just barely a floral). Available at The Bay or Shoppers. Or Hermes Twilly (everywhere).

    From your current lineup could best imagine wearing each day for an entire month one of the lighter, fresher Creeds like Royal Water and GIT, if not possible, Mugler Cologne as an alternative option

    Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions. Some of them are true gems I'd have never thought of.

    I see several people recommended Terre d'Hermes, which was my favourite scent for about a year.

    I'm really curious to try Armani Code Absolu and Declaration Ensence. Thank you all!

    Not sure if it’s available, but Rive Gauche by YSL would be my choice.

    If not, I’d go with Mugler Cologne.

    Thank you all for your suggestions. The fragrance with most recommendations is Terre d'Hermes Parfum. This would be my scent for the whole month of March.

    The winner of the draw is piney. You get the remainder of the Terre d'Hermes bottle once March is up. To claim your prize, please PM me with your mailing address by April 30th, 2020.

    Another favourite from the list is Declaration Essence. Thank you Cook.bot for the amazing suggestion.
