    Cool. I think you'll have fun with them.

    I wouldn't worry about what situations to wear any of these. I would just put some on in the morning, including on the back of your hands and/or wrists so you can smell them up close during the day.

    Congratulations for the Chanel Allure Homme Eau Extreme - getting very good performance from this as much as from ADG Profumo and rating both almost equally high, always preferred the Chanel fragrance a slight bit more, likely thanks to its further nuances and subtleties

    This would be a good one to add IMO.

    Though liking the Chanel Allure flanker Eau Extreme, can second ADG Profumo if this option remains on budget and you still like this

    Do you think that is still relevant in 2020? The adg prefumo?
    And if I buy Dylan blue it's still worth to buy adg prefumo? Because I read they smell the same...

    In the end I buy both the Dylan blue and acqua de gio prefomo and I think that the gio it's much better than the Dylan blue thanks guys!!

    I recommend waiting one month between bottles, so if you sprung for two, that would be two months.

    I buy all of my fragrance in the last month so i need to wait 6 month?

    That's my recommended system, to see which ones you love the most, including the deep down base you can still smell the next morning.

    No. I like to wear them about two days in a row, and then switch.

    Great advise from everyone on here.

    You are better off spending some time with a few fragrances, really getting to know them like a good friend.

    Can only second the recommendation to wait a bit between now and future perfume buys. Your wardrobe and repeatedly testing/wearing the fragrances in it will most likely provide the best answer if something new and additional is really needed or not, at least in foreseeable future.

    Now I have blue the Chanel edp , The one edp , la male. And I want to buy vercache dylan blue, suvage , prada homme and chanel sport eue extreme.
    I'd love to hear from you what would be good choice for me and how to proceed from what I'm already have thanks for the help! Be healthy!!

    Get to a store when you can and smell, smell, smell !!! For a short term option email your perfume vendors for recommendations as well as forums like this which have no vested interest in peddling products to you that don't sell!

    Nobody knows you better than yourself, so trust your own nose and take the opinion of others with a pinch of salt.Skin chemistry plays an important role in how a perfume can smell and perform on you.

    Finally, sample and take your time despite the hype, as some perfumes are slow to reveal their secrets (some good and some not so).You'll be surprised how your perception can change day to day, season to season and according to your mood.

    P.S Don't collect and hoard perfumes to show off or as investment! Buy perfume to wear, not to collect dust as plenty of 'fragheads' do.The latter is an addiction and super unhealthy, often to compensate for something missing in their life!

    I'm really enjoy to read what you wrote, and now I'm found out that I like some perfume more than others even they're not cost more, I'm really start to know my taste and I'm really enjoy it! For example in start I don't like so much the acqua di gio prefomo, but now it's growing on me and it's my favorite! So thank for what you wrote and good Luck!!!

    I wear fragrances for personal enjoyment only. Here are some tips:.
    - Sample, test, sample, and test. Buy what you like. Don’t buy something just because it’s popular. Don’t not buy something just because it’s popular. Buy what you like.
    - Some cheap fragrances are great, some expensive ones aren’t. Some cheap fragrances losers, some expensive fragrances are great. Let your nose guide you.
    - Don’t overspray at work and gas everyone out with a fragrance you love but that your co-workers hate. You can go to town when you’re home alone.
    - If your significant other doesn’t like a scent, don’t wear it around them.
    - Never wear a fragrance to a wine tasting, a whiskey tasting or an expensive restaurant. People want to smell the wine/whiskey/food, not your fragrance.
    - Make a budget and stick to it. Fragrances are not essential for life and shouldn’t displace something that is essential like saving for a work furlough or for retirement. If you’re having troubles controlling your spending, delete your BN account and don’t come back
    - If you get hooked on the hobby, remember that your friends don’t want to hear about it constantly; that’s what Basenotes is for.
    - Take care of your fragrances by storing them in a cool, dark and dry place.
    - Have fun, don’t worry.

    Out of the ones you told, Prada L’Homme would give a nice touch to your collection, but check out Prada Infusion D’Iris Cedre.
