    Default $600 dollars to spend at Lucky scent....

    Hello Everyone,

    Well today is my birthday! I got $600 in Lucky scent gift cards. Now the pressure is on. I'm looking for something that I can wear everyday, during the day. Preferably something fresh, office friendly and super high end.

    Thoughts........

    Happy birthday! Heeley's Cuir Pleine Fleur would be my first purchase! Have fun and let us know what you decide on.
    Very clearly a case for corn flakes and classics

    Super cushiony soap that makes the whole bathroom smell really, really nice. Pricey, but I don't regret it.

    Happy birthday!

    What a wonderful gift! I concur with Parfums de Nicolai New York,but I prefer the intense version, even if it's not as fresh.

    +1 on Fragrance Du Bois esp. Oud Bleu Intense if you’re after ‘office-friendly fresh’.

    Also consider this from Clive Christian

    Happy birthday!

    Apart from so many great fragrances already mentioned, also adding Royal Mayfair by Creed, Geranium pour Monsieur by Frederic Malle and/or Fougere Royale by Houbigant.

    I agree , check out London Oud from this house, it offers that fresh high end scent your looking for.

    WOW! Thanks everyone. I've decided on something from Fragrance Du Bois. It's either going to to be London Oud or Oud Bleu Intense.

    These two would also be amazing choices aside from the ones I posted above.

    If I had $600 I'd treat myself to Bee and T. Rex. Both are really something else IMO. And save the remaining $210 for something else I'd really love after some more sampling. There are some other things I'm somewhat interested in, but could probably get cheaper elsewhere.
