    Default Blind Buy ( Lanvin Oxygene, Sport, Kenzo, Azzaro Chrome, Eau Fraiche...)

    I have never tried any of this list.
    I'm thinking of one of the first two, because of the notes.

    Oxygen sounds like fresh green air ( I like Mirtle and Juniper !! )
    Notes:Tarragon, Coriander, Fir resin, Cypress, Myrtle, Juniper,White musk, Cedar

    Oxygen , for the notes, It seems to me a woody, resin, coniferous version of Adi Gio Profumo or Montblack Starwalker without floral notes, somewhat lighter but more conifire and herbal.

    I appreciate Your suggestions or thoughts, thanks.

    Lanvin Oxygene - Pleasant and fresh enough, but very light. You won't offend anyone wearing this one.
    Lanvin Sport - I like this one a lot.
    Kenzo Pour Homme - I like this one a lot - has a seaweed vibe which makes it amusing to my nose. Never received a positive comment wearing it though.
    Azzaro Chrome Sport - I think this one is not bad, but prefer the original.
    Versace Men Eau Fraiche - Never liked this one much for some reason.
    Lalique White - Haven't tried it.
    Regards,
    Renato

    Own and enjoy Lalique White. Starts out a little strong at first, but that only last for about 30 minutes.

    Lanvin Oxygene
    Lanvin Sport

    Kenzo Pour Homme
    Azzaro Chrome Sport
    Versace Men Eau Fraiche
    Lalique White

    From this list I would probably go with the following:

    Lalique White
    Kenzo Pour Homme
    Lavin Oxygen

    These are all relatively safe bets especially if you like something a bit woody. As Renato states, Oxygen is very light. The Kenzo is a modern classic. The rest I find far more forgettable.

    Oxygene is super cheap these days I'm getting a bottle soon hope it's good. If not no big deal breaker.

    Lanvin Sport is a great “daily driver.” It’s pleasant, versatile and won’t offend anyone one.

    From the Chrome line, I’d go with the original or Legend. The original wears best in warmer weather and Legend is that can be grabbed year round, but I wouldn’t wear it in scorching heat (cooler summer evening maybe).

    Lalique White is clean and inoffensive, but my sample only lasted 3-4 hours.

    Or...

    You take the $20 you’d spend on each and pick up Allure Homme Edition Blanche or Sport

    I’d also consider some of L’Occitane’s fragrances as well; great bang for the buck.
    I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

    Seconding/recommending especially Oxygene and Sport, as well as Lalique White and Kenzo PH as the better and also quite safe blind buy options for fresh, sporty casual elegance with a classy woody undertone, while delivering decent quality without breaking the bank either

    I don’t know Oxygene, but Sport is boring. You can buy way better freshies.
    Kenzo Pour Homme is pretty unique, but it very plain now, different from vintage formulations from the 90’s that were way more complex. Awful move to reformulate it. There’s one Ferrari that smells a lot like it. I should do a side-by-side comparison and wouldn’t be surprised if I find the Ferrari better.
    Lalique White is also nice.
    Versace Fraiche is very much alike D&G Light Blue for women and the latter has way better performance and smells less synthetic.
    Azzaro Chrome Sport is as forgettable as Lanvin Sport and lasts less than 30 min.
    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.
