    The ones you listed go together pretty well. There's a new version of Dior Homme edt I think you would like. I think it's going to be a hit.

    There was a Burberry I liked that was sort of in this style: Burberry Brit Rhythm for Him.

    For a little different style - more like the D&G, a little more classic, you might like Ralph Lauren Safari for Men.

    How big do you imagine your collection getting, ideally?

    I'm really didn't Know yet, but I didn't know what prefeume fit to what situation. And what I need to buy from my wish list first?

    I might get Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme first, or maybe the Prada. I like the Chanel a little more, but the Prada is the more recent style, and maybe more in style with people who follow new releases.

    On this site, I think people talk about Sauvage the most of those. I have trouble getting into it, but some people seem to love it.

    And if I buy one of them I don't need to buy the another? I don't want to buy prefeume in the same category before I have year around collection, And what about the Dylan blue?

    Others know it better than me, but I think it overlaps, a bit, with Bleu de Chanel, as does the new Dior Homme.

    Dylan Blue is cheap enough to get. There may be some overlap, but it's still a solid scent.
    Chanel Allure Sport Eau Extreme and Prada L'Homme are good ones to go with.
    Try prices on FragranceX, FragranceNet, Perfumania.

    So buy both the Chanel and Prada? And they have good performance?

    Performance on Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme isn't always great. The regular Allure Homme Sport might be a little better, despite what the names imply.

    I get some of the Eau Extreme on my cotton t-shirt, and that smiles amazing into the next day. I never love that fragrance as much as when I wake up with it, and this is 24 hours after applying. Just on skin, though, it can be gone in a few hours. I've heard two hours from people - maybe whiners who like to exaggerate, but without the t-shirt trick, I might only get six-ish hours.

    The regular Allure Homme Sport has a way of staying around longer, but it's also more the same from beginning to end. The Eau Extreme is better overall, I think. The regular Sport is louder, though, no doubt in my mind. If I wanted to stand out in a crowd - to be smelled - it would be regular Allure Homme Sport.

    I hear that the regular Allure Homme Sport little bit out to date, but I'm still want a long lasting ragrance and versatile so I think that I start Whit the cheapest Dylanlue and the allure home eau extreme after,

    Sounds like a plan! I smelled Dylan Blue when it first came out, and I thought it was a nice take off on the Bleu de Chanel style, which I do mostly like, although I think even Chanel isn't getting it quite perfect - maybe I'd like Dylan Blue more if I tried it more.

    Sauvage and Chanel Sport Eau Extreme would be two good additions IMO.

    Seconding especially the Chanel Allure Homme Sport Eau Extreme recommendation and also adding D&G Intenso, Rochas Man, Cerruti 1881 Edition Blanche to a possible (re) testing list

    I'm like the Dylan blue because the sea note in him it's very fresh although its little bit soapy.
    Now after you bring up the original Chanel allure sport I'm don't know what to choose this or the eau extreme version ��

    The D&G Intenso is always overlooked but that's a great suggestion. Same with D&G Pour Homme.

    I suggest that you buy a few classical fragrances. Look in my wardrobe at basenotes. My collection is very much focused on the classics. Read a lot about them before buying and try to sample some of them!

    Click on the figure of a perfume bottle, under the brazilian flag, on the left side of my posts. It will take you to my fragrance wardrobe.

    Prada L'Homme is a good one, but Acqua di Gio Profumo even better.

    Prada L’Homme is a excellent choice great all year. Dior Sauvage is a good all rounder too, can’t go wrong with this one easy on the sprays and it’s quite nice.

    I’d recommend these, Chanel Allure Homme Edition Blanche EDP, Chanel Allure Homme Sport the original one, Chanel Allure Homme, Guerlain Homme L’Eau Boisee, Guerlain L’Instant De Guerlain Pour Homme EDP, Versace Pour Homme, Azzaro Pour Homme, Mont Blanc Explorer, Giorgio Armani Acqua Di Gio Profumo. Your off to a good start though have fun on your journey!
