What is your signature...? I'm basically asking, what scent represents you the most?
I would say mine is Creed's Green Irish Tweed. I reach for it the most and can wear it any time of year and almost on any occasion. To me, it represents power, and sophistication. I would wear this with a Suit or a Polo and Jeans.
Yours is obviously different. It may be an particular aftershave, soap or even a whiskey for you lushes out there Tongue

There are so many great ones, and I tend to vary from one day to the next.
Having said that, if my wife was to name one that is "my" scent it would definitely be the Domenico Caraceni 1913.

I like several of my aftershaves a lot, but my wife's clear favorite for me to wear is Acqua di Gio.

It's too difficult to decide. Right now I'm wearing Roger & Gallet L' Homme and since I have been using it for more than thirty years then I guess this would be it.

I like alternating scents as well...But I guess in a pinch(like if my wife was rushing me out of the house and I had to grab a bottle)...

I don't have a signature scent, I have several or maybe I have a theme. I tend to like rose scents and I have a couple from Montale that I adore like Black Aoud.

While I have more AS, EDT, Cologne and Parfum than I know what to do with, I would have to pick I Coloniali Body Care Water as the one I would go with. In the cooler months perhaps more so with Acqua di Parma Collezione Barbiere.

The 3 scents I rotate through the most are Kenneth Cole Black, Armani Code, & CO Bigelow Elixir Black. Occasionally I'll wear Beckham.

Gentlemen,

My signature scents have been, are and will probably always be: Spanish Leather by Truefitt & Hill, Spanish Leather by Geo F Trumper, and Woods of Windsor by Woods of Windsor.

I have used these scents for many years, and hope to do so into the next century — that is, if the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise.

My stash includes a variety of others, mostly the classics — no Bay Rum, please — but somehow life misses a beat without my signature scents.

Taylor's of Old Bond Street Original # 74
I can get AS,cologne and a hair tonic.
I have others I love equally as much.
#74 holds a special place because of a kismet encounter and simply representing traditions and a (Perhaps) idealised view of what a prper gentleman should smell like- while behaving like one.

Kav2, my friend, I like your last line. Indeed, that's a lyrical way of putting it. Good show. By the way, the 74 is one of my preferred citrus aftershaves, too. Which reminds me, I am out of the stuff. Oh, panic.

I'm 50/50 bewteen Alt Innsbruck and Proraso. I love the simple clean smell of Proraso, it's a scent that isn't overwhelming or floral and seems honest--like your not masking something or trying to announce yourself to the room.

I honestly couldn't choose my favorite between the two.

Those are two total opposites. They will know your coming with the Alt Innsbruck.

I have many but for the last year or so, I've leaned on PdN New York, Creed Royal Oud and more recently, T&H Spanish Leather. For my wife, her favorites on me are Gucci Envy and Chanel Allure.
