  1. Colognes/Scents: whats good, whats bad


    What do you guys wear?

    I've been wearing Chikara, but I don't think I'll be reupping that. Too expensive for the size of the bottle, plus I didnt get too many 'hits'.

    I use Calvin Klein Escape, was turned onto that in the early 90s. Still like it.

    Just ordered a bottle of Burberry Touch, to change things up. Those plaid bottles are cool looking.

    I personally think smelling 'unique' is key ... a scent people are not used to. Sure, cool water smells nice... but it's too popular. I gotta be original.

    If you answer "Axe" in this thread, I will neg you.


  2. I like Polo Triple Black, believe it or not bath and body works has a good smelling guys cologne.

    There was one I really liked it could only be found at Nordstroms I believe. I can't remember what it was called but it was unique. Tom Ford was the guy that made it.

  3. I prefer Kenneth cole Black, Armani code, Armani, and the original "Tommy"

  4. Michael Jordan cologne!!!
    haha I still wear every once in awhile!

  5. 212 by carolina herrera. My favorite for awhile now.

  6. Burberry London is the only one I am wearing right now.

    Not too into commercial perfumes/colognes, but this one is good.

    I want to look into Jo Malone "Amber + Lavender". I've heard good things.

  7. aqua di gio..cant go wrong with that

  8. I'm a seasonal cologne person:

    Spring: Armani Aqua di Gio
    Summer: CK Summer

    Cold-days: Burberry London (I'm in FL. We have "cold days" and spring/summer. )

  9. I work at Nordstrom and the concensus from most of the ladies seems to be a cool/smooth scent. Try Lacoste (I think its a light green color) or Bvlgari Aqua Marine those always seem to hit. D&G light blue is a little over done. A new one that just came out is Gucci by Gucci (Yeah imagine that?? ) Its a pretty good one too.

  10. Lacoste is good stuff.

  11. Good place for custom creations (if you're around NY):

  12. Im a big fan of the aqua di gio myself, its been a round for a wjile but it is still one of the best. I used to get a lot of comments on verra wang for men as well. Just as long as it aint brute or old spic, hahha. Also I want to tell the guys that think axe body spray is cologne, its not.

    Aqua di gio I wear occasionally, but I love me some chikara.. smells good and works wonders.

  14. I like how Aqua smells but its too common! I'll have to check out Burberrys london, i like their line

  15. Lacoste
    Vera Wang
    Marc Jacobs
    John Varvatos

  16. Givenchy Pi Neo
    Perry Ellis 18
    Lacoste Black
    Kenneth Cole Reaction

    Out of all of them, the 18 gets the most compliments by far.

  17. This'll sound wierd but I have always been most attracted to a guy who smells like soap and fabric softner with a hint of his natural scent. Just that clean confident man smell.

    That's the criteria I use when I buy scents: I like to smell like I just got out of the shower.

  19. Honestly, that is the sexiest thing. Scents can sometimes be too trendy and nothing sucks more than smelling a guy and associating that with another person or event. If someone is going to wear a scent look hard for something unique and make sure it matches your body chemistry and don't put on too much.

    That being the sexiest thing. Right outta the shower.

  21. Love this stuff. -Givenchy Blue Label- Gets me compliments and the lil lady loves it:

    Agreed. That's why I like the lighter, fresher, citrusy scents that I wear in the summer...A lot of dudes seem to spray it all over their clothes, too, which is the wrong way to wear it. I always spray it on my body (neck/chest) rather than my clothing. Usually just one spray.

    You're supposed to smell like YOU, not the cologne. The cologne is just there for a little extra kick.

  32. My wife bought me Sean Jean's new cologne recently. I'm really enjoying to be honest. 1 squirt will last all day, and is not overly strong.

  33. tommy hilfiger
    versace
    emporio armani
    board supporter

  34. L'Hombre - Yves Saint Laurent

  35. My ex bought me a bottle of "Very Sexy for him by Victoria Secret" ... anytime a stranger asked me what I was wearing I would tell them "old spice" ... i did not want to say i wore something called "very sexy" by "victoria secret" less i feel emasculated

  36. I once covered myself in codliver oil then went naked to a blind lesbian convention.....

  37. I accidentally came across some stuff called Cerruti Image about 10 years ago. Ive been wearing it ever since. I love it. It seems to just fit me real well.

    No one has ever told me they know someone else that wears it, and everyone seems to love it.

  38. depends on your target audience. if you like em large, try using KFC as a cologne


    on a serious note, there once was a cologne that was rumored to attract women called "millionaire". it was the smell of fresh ink and paper ! true story, and it was rumored to work better the nicer you dressed.

  39. aqua di gio
    KCole Black
    Hugo Boss

    Honestly, that cologne is really good, if it's the one I'm thinking about.

    The one called "Jordan" (by Jordan) that comes in the blue box, not the "Michael Jordan" that comes in the black. It's really inexpensive, and I get compliments on it all the time.

    Also good:

    Chrome Legend (much better than the original Chrome, IMO, which smells good but doesn't ever seem to wear off and gets annoying after a while)

    Polo Blue

    Armani Code


    Finally, there was one cologne that I tried from a friend but haven't smelled in 4-5 years but at the time I thought it was incredible: Versace Blue Jeans. I keep forgetting to order some online, but I remember it was awesome. If I ever get around to ordering some, I'll let you all know if it's as good as I remember!
