Chanel Allure Pour Homme, without doubt...

Well.. maybe regional tastes differ. Here in Germany I would say: none. The same applies to a job interview, for pretty much the same reason.
These are the scents that I would reach for on a first date
Creed Green Irish Tweed
Le Labo Rose 31

This would take lots and lots of consideration to really pick out the best one. But if I had to make a quick decision I would probably go with...
Creed Aventus or Tom Ford Tuscan Leather.
as somebody who went out on a LOT of first dates a few months ago, those 2 work very well.
well...sorta. They work well for attracting the wrong (or right) type of girl.
The current GF loves my MFK APOM

He saw a lawyer killing a viper on a dunghill hard by his own stable; And the Devil smiled, for it put him in mind of Cain and his brother Abel.

This one's kinda easy for me. Dior's Eau Sauvage. It's staying power is legendarily low and therefore will only be really detectable when she's "close" - - -
Plus, it's absolutely one of the great scents from a true master nose and house.

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference." Robert Frost
Acqua di Parma- never fails. BUT but Martin De Candre Limette- nothing like it anywhere if you like limes.
Another vote for Chanel. I like many of them but I would go with Allure. If she asks you can say offhandedly, "oh, something from Chanel, Allure I think". Much better than saying, "why it's L'eau de Imprezziano Luchensia" or even worse " that'd be Old Corn Gullet Saddle Spritzer Splash, ma'am".
Mmmmm lunch date 4711 mixed with Burberry Brit.
Dinner date Armani Code (although I smell it far too often) or John Varvatos Vintage

Load it like you hate it! Full fledged 3017'er/ Unofficial 2013 Sabbatical Participant
Armani Code Black
Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male!
I'd go with either Truefitt and Hill's West Indian Limes or Bvlgari BLV
