hmmmm all good
Seen as though you asked though, I wear some seasonal scents in summer and winter (more citrus in summer and heavier woody scents in winter) but my daily fragrance I wear 3-4 days a week is Comme de Garcon, Comme 2.
And in this the socks specification is proven noteworthy.
I wear only one scent
Haha, had a crazy morning - luckily able to get out early while the sun was still out! Now I just need whiskey and a cigar and I'm set
Yohji Yamamoto - got it from our B&S
I don't usually use cologne - I have tried a few TF's though and black violet tops the list, though I only use it for evening events
FWIW I usually distinguish coat and tie frags from more casual. My fav coat and tie frags are encre noire, GIT, dior homme, tom ford grey vetiver, and gucci pour homme I and II. For more casual fits or when I wear cardigans I wear burberry london and brit or le male in the winter and more citrus/fresh in the summer such as chanel allure edition blanche, Creed MI, hermes voyage, and john varvatos artisan.
I got into frags before I got into MC
cdg2man & few serge lutens non-exports all so yummy

With respect to the many people who are allergic to fragrances, I gave them up several years ago. More and more, I see notices in churches, concert halls, theaters, and schools that read "fragrance free". In places where one is in a crowded room, I think that this is a good thing.
How would you know somewhere is fragrance free before you get there?
I actually do not wear fragrances when I see new clients until I recognize from their medical history that they are not allergic to anything. I also only wear 1-2 sprays when working. Lay it on thicker when I out on a date with the girl though
Yeah, you go playa.
that's because most assholes take a shower in the shit... if I can smell the cloying, obnoxious, puke-inducing fragrance of some woman from eight tables across the restaurant, there's a problem. Not to mention chachy tools wearing horribly nauseating alcohol-based "cologne" that brings tears to my eyes even while walking the sidewalk behind them from a distance of 20 feet. wtf... no one should be able to "smell" you until they are in the proximity zone in which it would be appropriate... which means if your not hugging or kissing me you don't smell me!
