    Hi all,

    I'm a 22 year old professional looking for a signature scent, mostly for evening/night. I've tried the following:

    Green Irish Tweed
    Himalaya
    Bois du Portugal
    Terre D'Hermes
    Bvlgari Black

    GIT is by far my favorite of these. I love the smell of leather, so I've been looking into Spanish Leather by Trumper and Tuscan Leather by Tom Ford. But I'm open to any kinds of suggestions.

    I don't like vanilla scents though.

    Please give a description of the scent. It'll save me lots of googling time :)


    Thanks!

    High Karate.

    Just joking, I myself rarely wear cologne, generally just aftershave and I leave it that.

    More seriously, Bulgari Black, Bulgari Green Tea, Bulgari Red Tea are all great.

    I have a sample of Bvlgari Black. I mostly smell vanilla, and I don't like vanilla scents.

    Thanks for the link. I've read through quite a few cologne threads here already, but thought I needed a more personalized thread. I'm very picky :)

    i love terre d'hermes, so much in fact i bought a huge bottle of the parfum. but it's really a mature scent, for someone 30+ yo imo.

    My personal favorite is Creed Aventus. I have tried Tuscan leather before, and it is pretty damn strong and pungent, not really my liking. I'm more of a citrus/fresh scent kinda guy, which seems rather similar given the cologne choices that you had.
