+1 for Aventus even though that one company made it too OP in the USA.
Spice Bomb original is a good winter time EdT

Two days ago I was told by a female friend that Bleau is the most common scent among men.

It's brilliant. Wafts of aged wood with a very masculine and charred undertone. Ladies love it

Edit: totally forgot about this thread, looks like it aged well. tons of awesome recs

Le Labo is expensive but has a couple gems such as Bergamotte and Thé Noir.

Also tend not to like Tom Ford, but I hear their fragrances (esp. Portofino) are top tier.

I second the vote for Bergamotte and The Noir. Also a fan of Oud.

Santal 33 while nice seems so common now that I would personally skip it. The point of a fragrance is to subtly stand out.

Agreed on Santal - still smell it a lot on the streets...

pretty sure its only common in finance circles. I have never heard of someone outside finance speak about this fragnance. In addition to this, I think its common on Wall Street but relatively unknown in the City in London.

I would say Creed Aventus is very well known and common.

let me know if i'm wrong.

Look into Maison Francis Kurkdjian for stuff that lasts longer throughout the night (only wear cologne when going out) - ladies love it

Creed Aventus
I only use a small amount at a time, but I always get comments about how good I smell from someone that gets very close to me.
Unfortunately its one of the priciest scents out there

amateur in this thing but let me explain it to you this way.

perfumes are chemical mixes. you spray on your hand and molecules react differently to heat. When its very hot, the perfume changes its smell. Heavy perfumes (eg something like Dior Homme Parfum which is discontinued and its my favorite) give off even stronger smell when its hot.

Spring/Summer perfumes are supposed to give off fresh vibes that are in line with general mood over these seasons and they are not supposed to suffocate you. You can use one perfume all year around but odds are it will smell differently when the weather changes or it may not fit.

i hope that makes sense. if it doesnt please explain it better
